5.0 out of 5 stars Makes you feel so good..., 19 Nov. 2004
This review is from: We Will Rock You: Cast Album (Audio CD)
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.
