    Not quite the best for my money....

    OK--for just about everyone on the planet who likes Les Mis, or even thinks they like Les Mis, this is the recording to own. The cast is truly outstanding. Colm Wilkinson is in splended voice for Valjean as is Philip Quast as Javert. Ruthie Henshall (HOTTIE!!!) puts on a how-to-be-a-great-singing-actor clinic and Lea Salonga is simply the most finely sung Eponine on record. My only problem with this particular incarnation of the show is that Anthony Warlow is NOT singing Enjolras. The music with the students is BY FAR the most interesting in the show and much is cut. The singing from the boys is leaps and bounds better on the CSR. Warlow was battling cancer at the time this was made and it is a shame he was not well. Michael Maguire is mainly fine, until he sings above E. Then his voice gets tremendously nasal and lacks the power and richness of Warlow's tone. Enjolras needs to inspire with his voice alone, and Maguire simply does not....but, Lord! is he handsome!! Michael Ball chews the musical scenery throughout (as is his trademark), but makes some wonderful noise. Judy Kuhn is a bland Cosette, but sounds nice--Rebecca Caine is better. The orchestra is top-notch and the recorded sound is flawless, right down to the musket misfire during "Castle on a Cloud." All in all, this is a tremendous recording and a great one to own. But if you want the whole shmear, get the CSR and listen to the student music...you don't know what you're missing!

    Broadway Fan

    I have been a fan of Les Miserables ever since our school put on the show. This CD allowed me to listen to the show whenever I wanted to. It excluded some parts of the show, but otherwise, I really enjoyed it!!

    very good

    All the TAC was great! Lea S. is the best Eponine, Ruthie Henshall is a very good Fantine and Michael Ball did a great job also. Also Kudos to the kids who played Little Cosette and Gavorche. They did a great job! The only reason it didn't get all five stars is because all of Little People is not in this version and they cut part of Cosette's song and all of Eponine's errand.

    Great!

    TAC can be put into 1 word: WOW! My Personal favorites for the cast are Michael Maguire (Enjolras)and Philip Quast (Javert). TAC is a real treat. If you've never heard of Les Mis before, this a great CD to start out with. The only problem is that they didn't have the full version of "Little People" or one of the barricade scenes. The best songs in this are "Do You Hear the People Sing?" "Lovely Ladies" "Red and Black" "Little People" "A Little Fall of Rain" all the barricade songs "Stars" "On My Own" "Drink With Me" and much more!
