AllMusic Review by

The legacy of Rocky soundtracks includes iconic tracks like "Gonna Fly Now (Theme from Rocky)" and Survivor's "Eye of the Tiger," and while the LP for the spinoff Creed doesn't give up one definitive number, it's a tight, exciting collection with plenty of highlights. One unexpected highlight would be the Philly-reppin' Meek Mill, who goes quick and crooked with his excellent "Check," and then there's the star-studded "Waiting for My Moment" (Donald Glover, Jhené Aiko, and Vince Staples), which falls somewhere between a Rihanna ballad and Darth Vader's entrance music. Future and Joey Bada$$ are here too, but with 2Pac's "Hail Mary" and Nas' "Bridging the Gap" landing here as well, the rest of the track picks go to these classics, which are too big to ignore.
