Wicked is destined to become a classic.
There is not a single song on this soundtrack that disappoints.Indeed many of them represent musical theatre at its best. I defy anyone to listen to "Defying Gravity" and not have the hairs stand up on the back of their necks. Sadly the iTunes sample does not do the song justice but you won't be sorry for purchasing it. Other highlights include; "The Wizard and I", "Popular", "One Short Day" and "As Long As You're Mine". The whole cast is amazing, but special mentions must go to the Tony nominated Kristin Chenoweth and the Tony winning Idina Menzel for their stunning vocal performances.
A modern classic
A true modern classic of the new millenium. The most expensive musical production ever when it opened on Broadway, Wicked continues to sell out nightly in New York and is about to open on the West End.....I already have my tickets! From the opening number 'No-one Mourns the Wicked' this show is an epic with not a duff song in there! The characters are well drawn and believable, the story is engaging and moving and the songs stay in your head for days. Highlights include Norbert Leo Butz's performance of 'Dancing Through Life', Idina Menzel's tour de force 'The Wizard and I' and the duets 'Defying Gravity' (the stunning ending to act 1) and 'As Long As Your Mine'. I am counting the days til I get to see the show (September 11th!) and cross my fingers that it's just as electrifying as the CD!
Wicked just doesn't sum it up - it should be called AWESOME
I've loved this cast recording since I first heard it over 2 yrs ago. Having seen the 2nd ever London performance, Ive fallen in love with it all over again. Idina Menzel is perfect as Elphaba - so many tracks that I adore - For Good is just perfect Buy it, Buy it, buy it
