5.0 out of 5 stars Next to Normal - Music 15 July 2011
Format:Paperback
This vocal selections book is much more comprehensive than for most musicals, perhaps because Next To Normal relies so much on its music to convey the emotion and plot of the show. It's a great score easily singable and actually has the proper harmonies and characters written in for all songs - no more 'solo arrangements' that so many other books insist we want (even in the five and six part songs 'Just Another Day' and 'Light' every line is given to us). Musically it's a strong piece and the piano arrangements are terrific, with enough padding in the more guitar driven songs to make them performable with just voice and piano, and the writing for songs like 'How Could I Ever Forget' is wonderful. Thoroughly recommended for anyone wanting a new and exciting musical that's thoroughly playable, singable and enjoyable.

This book is great and not widely known. My daugther needed it for sheet music for an MT audition. Also bought the CD.

Notable missing songs are Who's Crazy/My Psychopharmacologist And I, It's Gonna Be Good, Make Up Your Mind/Catch Me I'm Falling, Wish I Were Here, Song of Forgetting, and Better than Before.

Arrangements are based on the orchestra score, with minor adjustments in the piano part. Vocal parts are NOT doubled in the piano and the accompaniment follows the original piano part pretty closely. Vocal parts are written out for each character and some dialog is included.

Over all, this is a great Vocal Selections book. Too bad about the missing songs, though.

5.0 out of 5 stars INCREDIBLE MUSIC! 24 May 2010

This is a wonderful book. The songs are in their original key and sound exactly like they do from the show! The music is beautiful and I use mine SO frequently!

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! 7 Jun 2010
By La - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Recently purchased this book, and love it dearly. It has most of the songs, almost all, and I think the idea was to include songs that could be taken out of context and therefore useful to a singer... My Psychopharmacologist and I wouldn't really be useful unless one was specifically doing that scene from the show. Also, the book isn't the indigo color it appears to be in the above picture, it's actually the same color as the poster, so don't worry. The songs are in no apparent order, but very complete. An excellent purchase -- there are so many songs, you definitely get your money's worth!

This book has a large selection of songs from the show. Songs are in original key and accompaniments are authentic. I wish all show vocal selections were this good.
5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Song 15 Jan 2014
By Anna hamburger - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book came very quickly in the mail and was packaged correctly. I found the selections were good. There were only a few song I wish they had included, but I understand why they were not. One thing that I especially like it the print and staff are bold and easy to read.
