This is some of Boublil and Schonberg's best work. I think it is better than Les Mis, which I loved. I saw this show twice with the original cast (Rebecca Lock had already replaced Juliette Caton). The palpable chemistry of this cast was overwhelming. This was team work and musical theatre at its best. I remember sitting in the audience with the music washing over me and the tears running down my face watching Iain Glen & Rebecca Lock sing "Tell Me to Go." It stole my heart and then didn't give it back until the final curtain. I don't know why this show was not the HUGE hit it deserved to be. I have played this CD for others who also fell in love with its sweeping score and achingly poignant lyrics. I would give anything if a DVD had been made of this original cast, beginning to end. Iain Glen, in his first singing role is absolutely incredible as the returned, but false Martin Guerre. His heartfelt portrayal drew me in and melted my heart and made me a lifelong fan of all of his work. (And his voice blew me away. He should do more musical theatre.) Rebecca Lock in her first major West End role, is Bertrand the wife the real Martin left. She perfectly captured the many emotions; pain, loss, discovery, love and then the agony of the loss of the man she grew to love. She did this with a grace and reality that held me spellbound and made me wish the ending could be changed. This is a wonderful addition to any theatre lover's collection. The story synopsis is included and guides you through the musical journey. I highly recommend you take it.

The show came under much critism when it opened in the West End some years ago. I saw it a number of times before it closed early. It is a gem of a musical and on a par with many other rousing shows like Les Mis. There are some beautiful moments: especialy one set in an undercover chapel. Very humorous too.

Music is a very personal thing.
Read many reviews of this (not just on Amazon) some of which noit very positive.
It's true the music is not up to les Mis, though probably the biggest annoyance for me are some of the very corny lyrics.
Some good tunes - after two listens I find myself inadvertently humming these to myself.
I listened to outtakes of the 1999 cast version, which didn't appear up to this version, so I would personally reccomend this version.
All in all not dissapointed with purchase, 8 out 0f 10 for music and 5 for lyrics!!

Since writinmg first review I happened across the whole show on Utube, which put the music and lyrics into context, quite a lot of the second half of the story is lost on the recording. So in retrospect I was a little harsh on first review. 9 for music and 8 for lyrics.

I absolutely adore this musical and was devastated when it closed after a relatively short run in the West End. Was so pleased to be able to obtain the CD quickly and efficiently via Amazon a few weeks ago - needless to say, i can't stop playing it. The heart felt emotions conveyed by the lead actors are tempered by moments of humour which i still remember from going to see it all those years ago. And "Tell me to go" deserves to be included with all of those classic songs we've come to know and love by Boublil and Schonberg.
