3.0 out of 5 stars Nearly 4 Stars ..., 15 April 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Wicked [Original Broadway Cast Recording] (Audio CD)
May I give a rather different perspective on this CD?
I bought it before seeing the stage show - and I'm glad I did, since it helped me to understand the characters and follow the story. But listening to it wouldn't have actually persuaded me to see the show.
In my view, Wicked is one of those which is better visually than musically. Not that the music is poor - it certainly isn't and it fits the story perfectly. It's just that the score doesn't contain classic songs as such.
Don't get me wrong: I thoroughly enjoyed the show and would definitely recommend seeing it. The 'Defying Gravity' scene, for example, is stunning. Overall the show is witty and very entertaining. So yes, buy this CD beforehand - and keep it as a reminder. But as a musical album taken in isolation, it's good but not great.
