I saw the Wicked tour show with my choir in Toronto, and was converted on the spot. Wicked is, simply, one of the best examples of the Broadway genre. It is fanciful, intelligent, and brilliantly ties in with its mother musical, 'The Wizard of Oz.' You will never think of the Wicked Witch of the West the same way again; Idina Menzel as Elphaba is one of the most powerful and positive female role models out there, and her voice evokes a massive emotional (and not to mention musical) range. 'Defying Gravity' is one of the best girl-power anthems out there, and 'No Good Deed' still makes me cry. The entire album--nay, the entire musical--is brilliantly written, and flawlessly performed by the cast. Several hundred listens later I'm still floored by this album...and now, when watching 'The Wizard of Oz', I cheer for the Witch every time.
Wicked is... wicked!
Wicked is... well, wicked! This soundtrack is up there with the best of all time from Broadway. The Toronto show was fantastic.
Wicked is one of the best musicals EVER! I love the song Popular and What Is This Feeling?! If you love musicals you MUST get this album.
