There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I was never before really bothered about going to see this show. But between the friend's recommendation (she loves the show) and listening to this album a lot I would love nothing more than to see Wicked. I will definitely go at some point.
I thnk my favourites are Defying Gravity, Popular and One Short Day.
Stephen Schwartz is a very talented man who also wrote Godspell and wrote the lyrics for Disney's Hunchback of Notre Dame as well as Hercules) and should be aplauded. I just wsih they would record a London Cast Recording as they did with Beauty and the Beast and many others as it would sell! The music and the cast on the CD though are, more or less, just as good as the current London cast (OK I am biased London is better as the vocals seem to be stronger) - that said the magic of Wicked has been captured here!
I bought a download for myself, bought a copy for my Mother, bought a copy for my sister who recently saw it for Christmas and I've treated myself to the Anniversary edition.
If you haven't seen the musical then do and then buy this CD to help you remember the moment, You won't regret it!
But, in all seriousness, it is. I've seen reviews which have labelled some of the songs here as not up to par others from the musical, and from other works of Stephen Schwartz. I can now denounce those rumours with the cheery air that comes from listening to "Wicked" for the forty-seventh time. Every song on this album, except, perhaps, the lacklustre 'Wonderful' (although even that is good to sing along to when you're in a sing-along situation), is wonderfully addictive, from the cheerfully sinister 'No One Mourns the Wicked' to the insanely catchy 'What is this Feeling?' to the mind-blowingly powerful 'Defying Gravity' to the tender, heart-wrenching 'For Good' - I could go one with irritating comparisons and over-used adjectives for the whole review. Fortunately, however, I'm just going to leave you with this - buy this CD. Whether you've seen the show or not (and believe me, after this you'll want to) this is a great CD for all music/al lovers to have in their collection.
