5.0 out of 5 stars Best vocal performance from a musical on record 21 Jan 2012
Format:MP3 Download
When this album came out it bowled me over, the orchestrations are fantastic, love Banderous, Jimmy Nail don't like, but Madonna. I think it's the best vocal performance of any musical ever. The way she sings and uses the English language, hardly any American inflections is awesome, and Evita has a huge vocal range. Hope she'll do Sunset in 10 years time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Musical Genius At Its Best!! 28 April 2003
Format:Audio CD
Listening to Antonio Banderas belt out song after song with extreme precision and harmonious excellence is uplifting enough, but when alongside the talents of Jimmy Nail and Madonna then this musical masterpiece can only be described as immense. All three actors manage to belt out heart felt lyrics (written by none other than the king of musicals, Andrew Lloyd Webber himself) accompanied by wave after wave of beatiful music ranging from a soft echoing piano, to the soaring edge of an electric guitar, this soundtrack comes with all the songs Evita fans have come to know an love...A must for any avid fans, promising hours of quality listening and 100% satisfaction to all!

5.0 out of 5 stars Madonna is different from Elaine and others 4 Jun 2003
By Peter Durward Harris - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The songs from Evita have been recorded several times. First, there was the studio cast recoding in 1976, which yielded a UK number one hit for Julie Covington with her original version of Don't cry for me Argentina. Then there were the original stage recordings - the London cast featuring Elaine Paige and the Broadway cast featuring Patti LuPone. Eventually, the movie starring Madonna was made and this collection features music from the soundtrack. You can buy a double-CD to get the complete soundtrack, but the single CD contains all the essentials.
While I can understand the opinions of those who criticise this collection, I cannot agree. Certainly, Madonna is not Elaine Paige or Patti LuPone. I am not familiar with Patti, but I am a huge fan of both Madonna and Elaine, who are very different types of singer. Elaine has a clear, powerful, soprano voice with a wide vocal range - a British version of Barbra Streisand. Despite the hit versions by Julie Covington in the seventies and Madonna in the nineties, Don't cry for me Argentina is generally regarded (at least in Britain) as Elaine's song. Madonna, by contrast, has a deeper voice and a more limited vocal range. Nevertheless, her version of Don't cry for me Argentina is brilliant in its own way - and she is also in great form elsewhere on this soundtrack. Indeed, many will prefer Madonna's voice to those of Elaine or Patti.
So, taken on its own, this is a wonderful soundtrack. It demonstrates an extra dimension to Madonna's music that was previously absent, while it will reach places that Elaine Paige and Patti LuPone had no hope of ever reaching. If even a small proportion of Madonna's fans end up discovering Elaine's music because of the Evita connection, even better.
Enjoy this for what it is - a mainstream pop soundtrack - but if you are a serious fan of theatrical music, buy one of those original stage recordings (London or Broadway) or buy some of Elaine Paige's own music.

4.0 out of 5 stars An enjoyable CD 18 Sep 2005
By bleuceruleum - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
After attempting to wade through the bloated Evita CD, it was a pleasure to find this one with selected music from the movie.

I've always been fascinated with Eva Peron since reading about her when I was a child. She was considered a real-life Cinderella, and the fact that she died at the age of thirty three of uterine cancer- and had refused a life-saving operation because she had too much to do with her husband's second inauguration, was amazing to me. There is now an "Official" website devoted to Mrs. Peron- where the statement is made that Andrew Lloyd Webber did a very good job of combining the different and conflicting aspects of her life and personality.

In this CD you have the best of the music from the movie, and the songs capture Eva and the other characters so well. Madonna certainly deserved an Oscar. She sings beautfully and with an amazing range of emotions and moods. "Another Suitcase In Another Hall", and "You Must Love Me" are the best renditions I've heard. Her "Lament" with Anthony Banderas is haunting.

Anthony Banderas does a wonderful job overall. His voice sounds somewhat weak and is drowned out by the music in "Oh What A Circus", but he more than makes up for this with "High Flying, Adored". A marvelous song. After hearing this song, I went searching on Amazon to see if he perhaps had an album - but no such luck. (I would have settled for an album where he just talks - smile. He sounds soo sexy.) If you're used to the strong voices who have sang Evita- Mandy P., for example, you may find Banderas' voice is not as powerful, but he sounds quite authentic and the change was a treat.

The orchastra and chorals are fantastic - well recorded. I've enjoyed this CD very much.

4.0 out of 5 stars Madonna deserved the Oscar 18 Aug 2005
By Linwood E. Melton - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I expected a weak performance from an over-hyped Madonna. I wasn't a Madonna fan then or now- - - But how the academy withheld best performance from her should go down as the travesty of all time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Patti just can't do Evita! 22 Nov 1999
By Maestro Y - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I don't mean to offend Patti LuPone's fans. Patti's a great singer, and has a very strong voice. That, however, is a flaw when it comes to Evita. Even when she's supposed to sound sick and dying, Patti's voice is as loud and strong as ever. Fortunately Madonna doesn't have this flaw. Furthermore, Mandy Pattinkin isn't that good of a Che, come to think of it. His voice is too soft and melodic. When he sings "sing you fools", he tries and fails to get rid of this quality. Banderas' voice is perfect for this. It's rough, full of discontent (which is how Che should be). Lastly, the Broadway recording doesn't have the Academy-Award-winning hit "You must love me". So, get this one. It's the best.

4.0 out of 5 stars Best of the film soundtracks... 4 Sep 2008
By Terry Doc Thorne - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
First of all let me qualify myself by telling that I am an Andrew Lloyd Weber fan, so reviewing this CD is a pleasure for me. Not as 5-star Weber as "Jesus Christ Superstar" but a step up from 3-star "Cats"... Counting the opening "Requiem" and the ending "Lament", the CD has 19-tracks, with more than half of them winners, even if you're not a musical or soundtrack person. Track two, "Oh What a Circus" introduces the listener to the vocals of Antonio Banderas--not a bad listen but no competition for the redition sung by Mandy Patinkin when he played the part of Che on Broadway--as you get used to his raspy voice his performance gets stronger, peaking, I think, with "High Flying, Adored" which he shares in part with Madonna. Madonna, on the other hand, is superb. Eva Duarte Peron was a part designed for her sense of theatre. She is equally as good as Tony winner Patti Lupone's version on Broadway because, frankly, Madonna's range is greater. Of note is "Buenos Aires", "Another suitcase in Another Hall", "Goodnight and Thank You" a duet with Banderas, "Don't Cry for Me, Argentina", "Rainbow High" and, of course, the crowning "You Must Love Me." And too, Jimmy Nail, who played one of Eva's early lovers is a crooner with no equal singing "On This Night of a Thousand Stars", which everytime I hear I'm singing under my breath all the next day. Peron, played by Jonathan Pryce, is the big surprise--his singing part is much smaller than either Madonna's or Banderas' but when he is given the stage he is exceptionally good using his talking/singing style, particularly his solo "She is a Diamond", and when he duets with Madonna on "I'd Be Surpisingly Good for You"... All-in-all this is an excellent audio production, true to the movie. Easily Four-Stars! (If you want a version truer to the Broadway or London stage productions, I suggest "Evita" the 2006 London Cast Recording; also available here at Amazon.)
