Fun and charming...
The other reviewers seem to take the genre of musical comedy a little too seriously. Starlight Express, however flawed it may be is still one of ALW's most charming and creative efforts. Who would think of making a musical based completely on a boy's toy train set, and make the trains sing and dance (well dance on rollerskates)? The 80's "uber-synthesized" idiom is ever-present within this recording (it was recorded in 1984), but the dated sound makes it all the more charming! If you are a true child of the 80's and want to just sit back and enjoy a fun album get this one, you won't regret it.
An 80s Classic
I personally love this musical and can't get enough. Starlight Express is a musical for a new age with Blues, Rap, Techno and other styles, conglomerated into one fantastic skating laser show. The music from Starlight is unique and may have an aquired taste about it that some may not enjoy. This album is equivelant to a 2 disk CD and I would recommend at the very least to preview these songs.
i have been looking for this album since i saw the show in London in 1995. OMG! thank you i tunes! All the songs are classic and really take me back so some good old days!!
