Not as good as the original.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Jeff Wayne's Musical Version Of The War Of The Worlds - The New Generation (Audio CD)
This version is not as good as the original. Although the singing and auditory are well presented they do not have the “edge” of the original sounding more of a happy day out rather than at risk of losing their lives. Julie Covington and Phil Lynott in the original produce a gravitas just not repeated on the me album. The hard book presentation of the CD cover is a nice touch but overall file this version away and play the original album.
