    Can't wait for this to hit Broadway!

    This has been a long time in coming, a sequel to Phantom of the Opera. And it was well worth the wait. The new Phantom and Christine are awesome and needless to say I could almost feel the chemistry between the two of them through my stereo! My personal favorite tracks are Dear Old Friend, Beneath a Moonless Sky, The Beauty Underneath (oooh so Phantom that song), Devil Take the Hindmost and of course Love Never Dies.

    The DVD that is with this was interesting to say the least as it showed the buildup for the recording itself and how we could have a recording BEFORE the show's premiere in September in the UK. I've seen that this will not come the B'way til next Spring, but am willing to wait for it. You don't get to see much of the show of course, but do get to see certain set pieces and interviews from cast and crew.

    For any Andrew Lloyd Webber fan, this is a MUST HAVE for it has been YEARS in the making! Get it! Buy it!

    Amazing...

    If you liked the original Phantom of the Opera you will absolutlty love "Love Never Dies". It's a thousand times better than the original and the music is just over the top. Webber out did himself with this one and I'm waiting anxiously for the show to come to Broadway and the Hal Leonard sheet music to come out. =)

    It's all so Beautiful, almost too Beautiful!

    I have had this album playing continuously for days now. I can't stop listening!!

    Where to begin?!? When I heard Webber was writing a sequel to Phantom (one of my favs), I was excited to say the least, but I had my doubts. How could you sequel such a classic? Well, Webber has certainly exceeded expectations!!

    Karimloo and Boggess (Erik and Christine, respectively) have probably the greatest chemistry of any Phantom/Christine duo. And Liz Robertson (Madame Giry), such power!! Incredible!!!

    In case you're wondering, my favorite songs are "Beneath a Moonlit Sky" and "The Beauty Underneath." "Look With Your Heart" is up there, too. The intro to "Devil Take the Hindmost," where the Phantom walks up to Raoul, gives me chills just thinking about it, though I don't like the idea of them betting over Christine. I love "Once Upon Another Time," too, but I can't listen to it too much. It makes my heart ache...

    A Stand Alone Piece Worthy of the Lore of the Original "Phantom."

    When at first hearing of the idea of a sequel to the greatest musical ever written I was at first skeptical. How can one follow up a great success that is Andrew Lloyd Webber's "The Phantom of the Opera?" Well Sir Webber you have achieved success. "Love Never Dies" is a stand alone work. It cannot be compared to the original because the story has moved on-even into a new world. All the passion and intensity these two principal characters (the Phantom and Christine) have for one another is very much alive. The performances are fantastic. The pure vocal quality of Sierra Boggess (Christine) and the mysterious allure of Ramin Karimloo (the Phantom) is a masterpiece of two voices combining to create a colorful canvass of pure artistry. When listening to the recording for the first time I do recommend reading the included libretto along with the music and allow yourself to envision yourself within the story. The orchestral interludes are full of rich harmonies. The opening alto flute solo is very haunting but gives a gorgeous overtone of what is to come. Enjoy "Love Never Dies" and do not compare to original. Allow this story to be its own chapter in the overall story that is "The Phantom of the Opera"
