Spinal Tap - Soundtrack

Here's the question you may be asking: Did I really go looking for the actual cover of this album or did I merely cut and paste a black square onto this page? What you see on the left is the actual cover of this album (the vinyl release had Spinal Tap's logo on the front, but the CD release restored the all black glory of Smell the Glove).

This is Spinal Tap is one of the greatest mockumentaries of all time in that it pretty much invented and defined the genre. The soundtrack is slightly less interesting than the movie itself, but cuts like "Big Bottom" never fail to make me laugh. It's a juvenile sense of humor filtered through late 80's metal. I don't recommend this album to anyone who hasn't seen the movie, but if you really love the movie there's no reason to not own this album.
