Compared to the American Version, this is really poor
on 9 May 2011
I bought this OCR because I fancied revisiting some nostalgia.
I obviously was used to the Broadway version, because in comparison this CD is terrible.
The recording quality is poor, the acting and and singing is incredibly weak.
The band is great, if not as bright as the American version, but because of the above reasons, it's so difficult to enjoy.
I would say that if you are not familiar with Fame the Musical, personally, I would recommend downloading/buying the American version as it is 90% better and has much more of a spark and the cast thoroughly encompass their characters.
The US version is also 100% more funky.
Please, please, please, compare the versions for yourself before purchasing, the US version is on Itunes or the American Amazon.
