5.0 out of 5 stars DIFFERENT THAN USUAL, BUT STILL EXCELLENT 12 Sep 2006
Format:Audio CD
When "Aspects of love" premiered in April 1989 in London, wide audiences knew Andrew Lloyd Webber mostly by his big blockbuster musicals such as "Cats", "The Phantom of the opera" or "Evita. After the "Phantom", the composer decided to try something new, much in the same way he has done with "Cats" in the early 80-is after he decided to part ways with his lyricist Tim Rice. As the basis for his next musical he chose David Garnett's short novel of the same title.

The plot involves various love triangles and is as close to a soap opera as you can get in a musical. We follow a 17 year-old Englishman Alex, who is in love with an older French actress Rose Videle. They end up in the Spanish villa that belongs to Alex's uncle George, an elderly painter and writer. George in turn has an ongoing affair with a younger Italian sculptress Giulietta. George finds Rose and Alex in the villa and after Alex is called to the army, George and Giulietta begin living together, which at first Alex finds impossible to accept. Giulietta and Rose become quite friends, there is even a hint of a lesbian relationship between them. Even so, George and Rose get married. Some time has passed and Alex is out of the army and is reunited with George, Rose and their 14 year-old daughter Jenny in their villa in France. Jenny falls in love with Alex, something that a very old George, now depended solely on Jenny's love cannot agree to. Alex is torn between Rose and Jenny and soon George dies. At his funeral Alex meets Giulietta and they are instantly drawn to one another. Alex leaves with her, although Rose pleaded him not to leave her alone.

As you can see, the plot isn't quite as simple as it might appear.

5.0 out of 5 stars Intimate indeed 6 Jan 2005
Format:Audio CD
This is my favourite ALW musical, probably because it is the show that I liked most. I bought a "restricted view" ticket and to my surprise, I was not located behind a pillar, 1000 meters from the stage, but I was sitting right in the very first row, a meter away from the stage and the orchestra pitch ("too much view" rather than "restricted view") and it was a really breath-taking experience.
If "Phantom of the Opera" was Webber's attempt to marry grand opera and musical, this is his attempt to introduce chamber music to the musical. It is an intricate interweaving of themes and variations (as in chamber music). This creates a more intimate atmosphere, rather than the overwhelming pathos that usually is a characteristic of musicals. I think you need a little more time to get used to this sort of musical, but if you take the time then it is really rewarding, with lots of gems - and I do not mean the hits "Love changes everything", but rather things such as "There is more to love", "Mermaid song", "Memories of a happy moment" (if I remember the title correctly), "Seeing is Believing".

5.0 out of 5 stars Just stunning 31 Mar 2008
Format:Audio CD
This is my favourite Lloyd Webber musical - it's story is beautiful and the music is both brave and ground breaking. The story of 17 year old Alex who falls in love with stage star Rose and how their entwined love affair crosses throughout both their lives touching them and everyone around them - it is passionate and touching. I bought the CD boxset last year after owning it on cassette for many years and losing it in a house move and it was like coming home listening to it again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Lloyd Webber spectacular 23 Feb 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This Lloyd Webber, Black and Hart collaboration is one of the most enjoyable musicals of recent years. This cast recording sees Michael Ball in his most renowned role as Alex, the young soldier trying to negotiate his way through the trials and tribulations of love, never quite managing to shake off his past. The story is complex, but well handled by the team and the music is rich and heartfelt; from the simplistic 'mermaid' duet between Alex and his young cousin, to the vibrant and complicated harmonies of 'hand me the wine and the dice'. Not forgetting, of course, the most famous and powerful song 'Love Changes Everything' which takes on a whole new meaning within the context of the show. Listen and enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars ONE OF ANDREWS BEST.......................... 12 Jan 2005
Format:Audio CD
I first saw this west end musical in the early nineties when Micheal Praed and Sarah Brightman took the main parts and having seen many of ALW's productions I still think this is probably his best. The show had a great fast paced story and was also visually stunning with sets turning from theatre scenes to bar scenes to trains within moments. Therefore I feel reviews by people who have only heard the CD are unfair and not a true reflection of what the complete show was like. If you listen to any musical without seeing it first I don't think it's possible to "GET" it. If the show ever resurfaces trust me it must be seen. Micheal Ball does a wonderful job and had a big hit with "Love Changes Everything" but the CD is full of other great moments most notably "Seeing Is Believing","Anything But Lonely" "There Is More To Love" and "Chanson D'enfance" However the definative versions of the last two tracks can be found on Sarah Brightmans and Andrew Lloyd Webbers "Surrender (Unexpected Songs)". This CD brings back wonderful memories of a fanatstic show, if you got to see the show I recommend this CD as a reminder to a remarkable performance and one of Andrew Lloyd Webbers best but totally underated shows!
Just a note to other reviewers : Joseph was ALW's FIRST show so he did not go onto better things with Joseph.
Aspects came BEFORE Sunset Boulvard so be annoyed with the fact that Sunset sounds a bit like Aspects not the other way round.
