Why did this show fail on Broadway?!
This isn't just a great cast album, it's a great album. I've read a few articles and reviews about the Broadway show. It may have had its problems, but they had little if anything to do with the music. It's melodic and enjoyable with great lyrics. It makes me sorry I missed the chance to see the show. Hopefully, it will get a reappraisal at some time. Stand out tracks include "Stranger In This World", which I defy any gay man not to relate to and be moved by, "Il Adore", a beautiful song about grief and celebration of a person's life, and the hilarious "Ode To The Attention Seekers". Euan Morton and Raul Esparza's singing is amazing in a strong cast! In all, a great collection of songs that you'll be playing on repeat on your iPod. Or is that just me?
I can see why it flopped!!
Now, I love this musical with all my heart!! The music is soo amazing! But the London production and cast album is sooooo much better!! The music is a lot rawer and the vocals are just 10 times better! I mean you cant under estimate Euan Morton's stunning voice (and his vocals are just as good on this album as they are on the original) but the originals are soo beautiful and heart felt! Where as this album just sounds SO american and false! Dianne Pilkington, Paul Baker, Luke Evans, Matt Lucas (the original leads) sing their songs with such passion and meaning which makes the backbone for a lot of these songs! I implore you, get the Original London Cast Album because you will hear the songs how they should sung, not just sung for the hell of it with no heart (like the broadway version), but sung with connection and understanding! But if download any of this album, just get Euan Morton's songs!
