Please, pretty please amend your credit for Éponine. It's Samantha BARKS, not Samantha Banks. It's her first film role, at least get her name right so people know who she is!
WHERE ARE LITTLE FALL OF RAIN, DO YOU HEAR THE PEOPLE SING AND LOVELY LADIES!? It's not right without them:(
Such a tease.
I'm glad that they didn't re-record this in studio. I love that they acted it out both cinematically AND musically - the rawness and brokenness just add to it's power - but it feels too incomplete even for a highlights album.
Too many popular tracks from the film are missing. Tracks that drive the narrative and have emotional impact (like Who Am I?, A Little Fall of Rain and the anthemic Do You Hear the People Sing?). I would class these as highlights before the likes of The Bishop and The Confrontation...and Gavroche, the character that inspired the whole thing, isn't represented here at all.
I assume these songs are being held back for a follow up album but a complete album would have been more generous. Especially given the subject matter of said musical...the message of which was clearly lost on Universal Music!
