I brouht this CD expecting all the magic from the London Show, that would not be a bad expectation as it is the London Cast Recording.
Imagine my surrpise when i find that most of the tracks are the original singles recorded by the original artists and not only that, the rest of the tracks, which are live, are recorded by the cast in a studio (if you read the CD inlay) with an audience patched in. Not only that, but the live tracks lack any sort of power or anythig that th show itself gives. It's as if the band and cast were dragged in on a Sunday and didn't want to perfom.
A terrible disapointment for someone like me, i took my partner as a present to see the show and then thought it would be nice to get her the CD. I hav listened to it and doubt i will give it to her, It's not worth it.
