Phantom of the Opera [2004 Soundtrack] [Special Edition]
I must say that I wholeheartedly agree with Lydia who reviewed the cd below; while this is a 'nice' (although inadequate) attempt to put a new and more modern spin on the original, the voices of the new actors/actresses can't begin to compare to Sarah Brightman and Michael Crawford's. But I suppose the aim was to broaden the appeal of the musical, and it has justly done that. Yes, if you liked the movie, you probably like the soundtrack. But again, as mentioned before, if you did like the movie/soundtrack, you must likely are new to the musical and haven't heard the original cast recording or seen the show live. In short, this soundtrack may be 'adequate' for most, but real phantom phans know it doesn't hold a candle to the original.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
