This musical soundtrack will blow your mind!!
on 13 December 2003
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.....
