Le Miz is of course brilliant and the recording is great. It's nice that they released this 'highlights' album for a cheaper price than the whole lot, but PLEASE be aware that, as opposed to some highlight albums that skip scene changing music and background/dialogue, this misses some wonderful songs and parts that make the story cohesive (and when you listen and think "yes, this is wonderful", you'll miss the rest). Don't make the mistake I'm about to make, which is to buy a couple of extra tracks from the full album and therefore pay more than I would have done buying the whole production. You can't return an MP3! Five stars for the album and music, one star for myself thinking the highlights would be enough.
