Simply Wonderful

Vengeful

This daring musical came out in the late 80's, I believe, and lasted only a very short time in London. With this cast recording, however, I haven't any idea as to why this did not last. Despite being a science fiction musical, the score is wonderful, and the performers are utterly amazing. Judy Kuhn and Graham Bickley are perfectly cast, as is (in my own opinion) Brian Blessed. There are a lot of ensemble numbers, something I have always been fond of.

And it is fair to note that I am a huge Les Miserables and Miss Saigon fan as well.

Do NOT miss out on this gem. It is difficult to find online, and often expensive.

Interesting...

I was actually looking for the original movie soundtrack and came across this. It definitely is not one of the greatest musicals of our time, but it is definitely an interesting musical and worth a good listen. The nice thing about it is that it incorporates the feel of the original film, even with some undertones of the original orchestrations...if you're curious, listen. If not, go watch the original movie.

Flawed but beautiful

Metropolis is, if nothing else, a very vibrant musical. The singing is very good and some of the songs are very well-written. Even though the lyrics aren't particularly good, when they're bad, they're bad enough to be hilarious. Overall, it is an interesting and enjoyable musical, well worth a look.
