Album Review

Few musicals have enjoyed the cultural (and financial) longevity of The Phantom of the Opera. Lyricists Charles Hart and Richard Stilgoe, and composer Andre Lloyd Webber’s take on the classic French novel by author Gaston Leroux, opened in 1986 with no endgame in sight, which makes one wonder why it took so long to cash in and make a sequel. In 2010, Webber, along with writer Glenn Slater, who won a Tony for his work on the 2007 stage adaptation of the 1989 Disney film The Little Mermaid, brought Christine Daaé and the Phantom together again in Love Never Dies. Set ten years after the events of the first installment, the Phantom has lured his muse from Paris to New York City for a performance (that unbeknownst to her, he set up) at a new venue called Phantasma in Coney Island. High drama and tragedy ensue (fans of the original will revel in the gothic splendor of pieces like “The Coney Island Waltz” and the crafty/schmaltzy ballads “Til I Hear You Sing” and “Love Never Dies”), allowing Webber to spin a predictable but effective new set of themes that both celebrate the half-masked anti-hero’s pipe organ past while allowing him to evolve (as much as he can with his anger issues and addiction to heartache) beneath the formidable shadows of the Big Apple.

Worthy to be the sequel.

When I first heard that there was going to be a sequel to phantom of the Opera, I had my doubts, regardless of how much I was saddened by how it ended. After hearing the few songs released a while ago (Till I Hear You Sing and Coney Island Waltz) I was rather hopeful but still had my concerns. After all, Phantom of the Opera is almost unarguably one of the best musicals ever composed and produced. Now, however, after listening to the soundtrack in its entirety, I can say with utmost confidence that Webber has not lost his touch. The entire musical includes both bright, happy songs that don't make you think, but just kinda put you in a good mood, like Bathing Beauty (though I found it slightly annoying, it was full of pep and made me think of sunflowers for some reason), and the heavy, dark music that we all associate with Phantom of the Opera, such as The Beauty Underneath (which happens to be one of my favorite songs from the soundtrack). The entire story, from what the music reveals, is mind-blowing. I won't be able to watch the original Phantom of the Opera in the same way again, though I don't say that in a bad way.
To sum it up, this work is superb. I can't wait to see it on Broadway as soon as it starts running there, and only hope the cast can do this marvelous work justice, as the cast in the recording did. 5/5, and a must buy for all musical fans, Phantom fans, Webber fans, or anybody else taking the time to read this review. If you'll read this much about it contemplating whether to buy it or not, you clearly care enough about it that I'd say buy it, you won't be disappointed.

Love Never Dies

One of ALW's best works in a long time. Great score! Wonderful, wonderful performances by Sierra Boggess (Christine) and Ramin Karimloo (The Phantom). Highlights: 'Til I Hear You Sing, Beneath A Moonless Sky, Dear Old Friend, The Beauty Underneath, Devil Take The Hindmost, Love Never Dies. Must have for any fan of the original Phantom or ALW.

Love really never dies...

People who are giving this a bad rating are only doing so because they are mad a second one was made. Regardless of that this is by itself an amazing musical! Great cast, great songs, and great music!!!!
