I bought the CD a few weeks ago but hadn't actually got round to listening to it until I went to see the show last week. The music is typical of ALW i.e. a little bit "hit and miss" - some excellent songs 'In God's Country', 'Let us Love in Peace' and I' Don't like You' mixed in with some very average stuff. It is very powerful and emotional but as a "Les Miserables" fan, these are qualities/ingredients which I'm used to and are essential to produce to a top rated dramatic musical.
I would bear with this CD, you may not like it at first but it is more rewarding the more you listen to it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A magnificant new musical. 25 Jan 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
THE BEAUTIFUL GAME is a new giant step for musical theater. Ben Elton and Andrew Lloyd Webber has created a wonderful story, with some great lyrics, and fantastic music. "God's own country", "Our kind of love" and "Finale" are ear-hangers, that get's the tears in your eyes, to wet your chins. This is an exellent example of music and words mingelling together in perfect harmony.

5.0 out of 5 stars As always... 25 Jan 2001
Format:Audio CD
... I need a few times before I fall in love with an ALW musical. But then I realize that he is probably the best tune-smith around and there is always plenty to really like. "God's own country" and "Our kind of love" probably are the best songs from the musical. I cannot really say much about the story, I would have to see the show. On the one hand, I find it daring and interesting to focus the socio-political conflict into football (or to write a musical which centres on sports at all). On the other hand, there seem to be a lot of Romeo-and-Juliet themes in there so that it does not seem that original after all. As I have said I would have to see the show. It is a pity that the glory days of Westend musicals seem to be over and "The Beautiful Game" (as "Whistle down the Wind") will not get that much public attention as other musicals before

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow 23 Jan 2001
By Nazhar
Format:Audio CD
I am really surprised about this brilliant new musical of ALW and how he managed to write so many new touching melodies. On the top of all is "God Owns Country" , an absolutely beautiful and touching song which became my favorite ALW song and is the best contemporary musical ballad in my opinion. Another great melody is "Let Us Love In Peace" and the opener "Beautiful Game" (after the modern celtic overture) has got a refrain that you will start singing as soon as you have heard it once.
The story of the musical is as touching as many of its melodies. And the message NO CHILD WAS EVER BORN TO HATE is a powerful appeal for more peace in the world.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great! Buy it! 13 Dec 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Fantastic music and songs, truly one of ALW's best musicals. The only criticism I can find is the music on the CD differs very slightly on the odd word or two to make it more acceptable, but it's only noticeable if you've actually seen the production. Still brilliant!

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Game - Beautiful Music 25 Jan 2001
Format:Audio CD
Having seen the show in October 2000 I couldn't wait for the CD and I wasn't disappointed. Not a show about football but 2 love stories. Superb music by Lloyd Webber, he just gets better and better, and very witty lyrics by Ben Elton. Favourite must be "Gods own Country" the blending of voices of "Mary" and "Protestant Girl" is wonderful. The entire cast is superb. An exhilarating, funny, tragic, hopeful story. I defy anyone to listen to this music and not be moved. I read somewhere that one indicator of a good show is if you can sing or hum the music on 1 hearing, this is definitely the case this time.
