5.0 out of 5 stars A MUST HAVE!!!!! modern day classic, 31 July 2003
This review is from: Jeff Wayne's Musical Version Of The War Of The Worlds: JEFF WAYNE'S MUSICAL VERSION OF (Audio CD)
I studied this piece of musical genius for my music G.C.S.E. in the late eighties and fell in love with it.BR>The remastered translation to CD can only be described as AWESOME! Jeff Waynes musical vision of H.G. Wells novel now makes my spine tingle like my old worn copies used to,only more so.
Richard Burtons opening dialogue is amazingly convincing,and you can understand why Orson Welles original broadcast caused such widespread panic in America in the early part of the last century,especially when you consider that the aeroplane was still really in its infancy,interplanetary travel really was in the realm of science fiction.
If you like instrumental music,especially with a '70's rock synthesiser twist,this is a must have CD. Yet although it is very much a product of its era it is a unique piece of musical history and as a result is timeless.
The War Of The Worlds should be part of your musical collection along with Rick Wakemans musical vision of Jules Vernes "Journey To The Center Of The Earth" another unique '70's instrumental classic.
