This soundtrack grows on me everytime I hear it, and it is fast becoming a favourite.

The varying music styles enhance the story being told - particularly those that evoke vaudeville and the turn of the century. The intriguing tune of "Beautiful" isn't beautiful in the melodious sense of the world, but its very difference in the notes chosen make it beautiful in a strange and haunting way. The lovely harmonies and polite social graces covering up the truthful undertones of "Dear Old Friend" give at once an amusing and hummable song. "'Til I Hear You Sing" is an amazing ballad, and sung with such strength and emotion by Ramin Karimloo. My absolute favourite song on this album is the rock-opera style "The Beauty Underneath". The Phantom's entrance (not for the audience, but for Christine) is punctuated by the strong melody of "Beneath a Moonless Sky", which pervades the entire score. The "Coney Island Waltz" makes me think of carousels at old fairgrounds, but gradually changes to something more sinister, reminding us of who is behind Coney Island in "Love Never Dies".

While there are links to the original "The Phantom of the Opera", "Love Never Dies" can and does stand on its own.

There have been varying opinions on the soundtrack (and on the show), but I think it is like a lot of great music - music that endures - in that it is not always the first listen that traps you, but rather its ability to steal into your soul without you realising its growing effect. As someone who is fast getting hooked, I can't praise this soundtrack high enough.

The DVD includes interviews with Sierra Bogess (Christine), Ramin Karimloo (The Phantom), and Summer Strallen (Meg) for the cast, along with the director, lyricist, the creative team, and, naturally, Andrew Lloyd Webber. There are some fascinating moments, particularly those when you're taken behind the scenes to see the set taking shape.

I was going to see the show on the first preview on 20th February but sadly it was cancelled because of technical difficulties. So I quickly ordered more tickets and then went on 5th March. I ordered this last Friday (5th March) and it turned up yesterday. I've listened to it five times already and now as I type the sixth.
In each time I've listened to it I hear something new just like what another reviewer said.

I love the music because it's just fits perfectly in the time when it's based - the early 1900s. One of my favourite songs is "'Till I Hear you Sing". It is very powerful and emotional and I feel like I'm going to cry whenever I listen to it. The reason of this is because of the performance by Ramin Karimloo who in my opinion is an absolutly brilliant Phantom. Another is "Beautiful" while my favourite (like other people I have read) is "The Beauty Underneath" because it has the most unique piece of music in the show and it reminds me of the rock-opera style from the first show and I thought that this song was the "Phantom of the Opera" song but for this show. My favourite non-lyric instrumental like piece is "The Coney Island Waltz", like other reviews have said (not just on here) it has reminded them of 'old fairgrounds' and then moves onto something else and I can feel the love and hatred the characters have to Coney Island and it's overall mastermind.

One of my favourite things about this show is how the show isn't a direct sequel. It's a sequel yes but like Andrew Lloyd Webber said it's a stand alone story but with links to the original like the characters and a few pieces of music. Another of my favourite things about this show/CD is how it's more or less the entire show on 2 discs (but you can listen to it in one go if you import it onto your computer).

A long cherished ambition realized - Andrew Lloyd Webber's sequel to his 1986 "The Phantom of the Opera". Imagine the critics eagerly sharpening their knives. How could this hope to match the worldwide record breaking popularity of the original! What folly to try!

Actually the new show manages very well the transition - although there is a major shock for those who remember the closing moments of the film.

Ten years have passed. Painfully aware he remains not the main love of wife Christine's life, Raoul has taken to gambling and drink. To pay off his debts, Christine accepts an engagement at America's Coney Island - oblivious that the Phantom is again pulling strings. He had been smuggled there from the opera house by Madame Giry and her daughter Meg. Still besotted, he is determined to reunite. The stage is thus set for the love triangle's new phase, ten year old son Gustave the new ingredient. (Yes, ten years old. Think for a moment. Consider implications.)

No more candles and gaslight. Now a world of electricity and razzmatazz, Coney Island very much the place to be - playground of rich and poor alike, freaks abounding so the Phantom has no reason to hide. Andrew Lloyd Webber makes the most of the opportunities to recreate the atmosphere and excitement of this bright new age, whilst indulging in another lush romantic wallow. Highlights are many - including The Coney Island Waltz, Look With Your Heart, The Beauty Underneath, the pulsating Devil Take the Hindmost. All need to be eclipsed, though, by the show's title number that comes near its close - the mere singing of which will alter for ever the lives of the six main characters. That song needs to deliver. It does.
