What can i say? I saw WWRY at the Dominion Theatre a month ago and ordered this CD as soon as i got home because i was blown away by every aspect of the show, but especially by the songs in it and the actors who sang them. Without a doubt, Tony Vincent (Galileo) and Hannah Jane Fox (Scaramouche) have the best voices i have ever heard. It is worth buying the CD just to here them singing some classic Queen hits, namely 'Under Pressure','Who wants to live forever' and 'Hammer to fall'. They have so much energy and musical/technical ability - they 'feel' the music, if that makes sense! They never once hit a wrong note and they have so much emotion in their voices. The both have an extremely wide vocal range and their harmonies will send shivers down your spine!
Kerry Ellis who plays 'Meat' is also brilliant. She sings a lovely rendition of 'No one but you (Only the good die young)' which moved me to tears when watching the show and it comes across just as well on the CD. My favourite songs that the chorus sing are 'Radio Ga Ga' and 'One Vision'. The words have been altered slightly, to bring the songs up to date so they fit into the story. These songs are really powerful and the harmonies make a big impact.
I like the fact that it was recorded live so the cheering and clapping from the enthusiastic audience makes you feel more involved and you can imagine you are actually there.
To sum up just how amazing this soundtrack is, it has not moved from my CD player for 4 weeks and i'm still not bored of listening to it over and over again.....

I have watched this musical many times, which is funny because apart from We Will Rock You I have never seen a show or a concert more than once, let alone 5 times.
The show, and the music of the CD (which trasports you back to the electric atmosphere and enthusiasm of the audience) makes you feel damn good to be alive. You get to follow the brilliant plot through the lyrics of Queen.
Writer Ben Elton looked into the future into a world where Pop Idol and the like have destroyed real music, music made out of love. Everything is electronic and real instruments have not only been destroyed, attempting to make one and use it is illegal. Galileo Figaro, a misfit, dreams of words like "I want to break free" and "Lucy in the sky with diamonds" and sees visions of masses of people singing, clapping and making huge noise. He has no clue where all this is coming from, until he meets Scaramouche and his heart starts to talk to him... He then meets "The Bohemians", outlaws in search of a leader to lead the world back to musical freedom.
But how will they do it with no real instruments left on the planet and police breathing down their neck?
Follow their journey through the music of Queen, and allow yourself to be transported to the past, back when love and genuine talent ruled music. Feel *passion* and *individuality* triumph, feel *hope* that this world is not steadily losing every value that matters. Dance around, sing along... and remember Freddie.
Enjoy x

For years various artists have tried to cover the songs of Queen with varied success. From the mildly good to the plain awful, these covers have never been able to capture the true magic and life with which Queen presented their songs. That is until now.
We Will Rock You is a smash hit West End Musical currently showing at the Dominion Theatre in London. Having seen the musical twice myself I have to say that it is outstanding in it's presentation and choreoraphy. The only thing that lets it down is it's script and general plot which I won't go into here! The performance of the songs in the musical is nothing short of outstanding, and this CD captures the cast at their best.
All the favorites are here: "Radio Ga Ga" and "One Vision" are brought into the 21st centuary in brilliant new arragenments performed by the WWRY ensemble whereas "I want to Break Free", "Hammer to fall" and "Under Pressure" are performed by the musical's two leads: the magnificent Tony Vincent and Hannah Jane Fox. A touching rendition of "Only the Good die Young" is included and "Who wants to live forever" is faithfully rendered in an arrangement which far surpasses the original.
WWRY is, in effect, updating the Queen songs for a new millenium. While (due to the fact that Brain May and Roger Taylor wrote these new arrangements) the basic fabric of the songs has not been changed, they have been brought very much up to date with the new life breathed into them by this musical.
This is very much a CD of the highest caliber which contains all the magic of the original Queen songs while presenting them in a new light. This is Queen at it's best and is a must for any Queen fan. But it's also a new side of Queen, and I can't think of any person alive who won't like these fast, catchy and fun renditions of the songs.
Stop reading the reviews and buy it now!! You won'tbe dissapointed!

I'm not going to try and sell this disc to you, but only say a few things about it.
If your not that intrested, dont buy it.
If you love queen, like queen or just tap your feet to their beats, buy this cd.
The musical captures the love and sincerity in each and every song. Me, I've seen the musical 5 times, and watching it again in a week and a half on the 25th March. I have spent well over £300 in front row and box tickets.
I haven't wasted a penny of that money, this cd is a bargain, bag it. You will ot be able to stop listening to it.
I bought this cd straight away when i got back from the theatre the first time i saw it. And it has only left my cd player once, for a week, and i got the cd christmas 2002.
ENJOY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
