This movie and the soundtrack that accompany it have been the subject of some criticism, but I found it to be brilliant - if only you let it stand by itself. Theatre versions of the production require the cast to project their voices across the auditorium to the people sat at the back, and as such the people singing these songs usually belt them out with full voice, fitting in sentiment where they can. However, this is a movie soundtrack - so the actors can sing much more quietly and softly when the mood requies, giving rise to some very different versions of the songs.

If you wish to compare this to the theatre experience, you will not have your expectations met. However, if you are open to some different interpretations of these classic songs, I'm confident you will hear a more human, more vulnerable portrayal.

I chose this product as I loved the film. I also wanted a lot more songs from the soundtrack (more than the highlights) and this deluxe edition provided that. However, this product took a lot longer to arrive than other items I have ordered on amazon. When It finally did get here, the front sleeve was damaged and the CD's were scratched. This no doubt happened when in transit. However, it was a long procedure getting in contact with George and Freddie and when I asked for an exchange of the product I was told there was none left in stock. When It was in stock I would receive the item with no extra charge to myself yet im still waiting. This is very disappointing and I may consider ordering items elsewhere as im not kept up to date with my how my new purchase is getting on

This was purchased as a present for Christmas so although I have not played the CD, it looks to be a complete replica of all of the songs from the film which is excellent. I am quite certain that as with the film it deserves a five star rating.

The bad review is not for the recording but for the quality of the MP3 encoding. I bought the album as download only and I cannot believe how badly compressed this is. I would recommend buying the CD and compress it yourself.

Went to Cinema to see this, and was pestered to buy it as soon as it came out on DVD. Great movie. Didn't want to see it initially, but was persuaded by my Daughter. Glad I went in the end!

Fantastic, awesome. Can't write enough superlatives. Constantly on in my car on all my journeys. I love the way it follows the same route as the film. I can 'see' the movie as I drive.

Just love the film - and this soundtrack does not disappoint.
There are some better vocal performances, however, in the 10th Anniversary Album but Hugh Jackman comes up trumps.

In common with so many other reviewers I just wanted to say that this CD is a perfect companion to the film allowing me to have the music in the car. Some folks try to compare the film to the stage or 25th versions. For me they are completely different beasts. Far from being someone who must have every version of this classic story I think you get a totally different experience from stage to film to book. I do not expect film actors to have brilliant singing voices however, with the exception of a personal dislike of Amanda's vocals, the suberb cast deliver the goods on all artistic levels.

Between seeing the film and waiting for the D.V.D. This is a wonderful substitute. Just put it on the CD player close your eyes, sit back and wallow in over 2 hours of wonderful songs sung by wonderful actors and actresses. This may not be the pitch perfect music that you might expect from the theatre production but anyone who has seen the film will know the drama that the music contains.
My only criticism is why o why did they not put all the soundtrack on the cd. The piece where Valjean meets the Bishop is missed off as well as other I think quite important linking pieces.

Having been a Les Mis fan for a number of years now after seeing the stage musical on more than one occasion and also the 2013 movie, I couldn't wait for this album to be released and I definitely wasn't disappointed. Every track on it is recorded so well that you can understand every word that is sung and as it's playing I can picture the movie perfectly in my mind. I would recommend this album to all Les Mis fans, especially those who saw the movie. For anyone who hasn't seen the film or stage show I say "GO AND SEE THEM BOTH" and then you'll want this album for sure.
