    Love it!

    I loved Wicked the book, so I thought I'd check out the soundtrack and I am so glad I did. It is a great CD; it has amazing vocals. I really enjoy this CD.

    A Stunning New Show With a Stellar Cast

    "Wicked" is the new Broadway smash. I think it's great! Stephen Schwartz's score is tunefull and catchy.Kristen Chenoweth is a delight as Glinda. Idina Menzel is even better. Joel Grey has his turn with "Wonderful". "Wicked" is highly recomended!

    Wickedly Wonderful!

    Wicked is so much fun to listen to! It's everything you would hope for in a musical, and it's impossible not to sing along. The incredible talents of Idina Menzel, Kristin Chenoweth, and Joel Grey will leave you in awe. Wicked is truely fabulous!

    Its WONDEROUS

    I've heard a lot of complaints of this show's score being the weakest part of the show, but even if that is true that doesn't wreck the performances. Every single song is not strong in this musical (unfortunately, a trait that follows in many Stephen Schwartz musicals), and yes, i agree with those who say that some songs just seem too long (The Wizard and I, Popular, Thank Goodness, Wonderful). And then there are the songs where i asked myself "Why even have it in the show?" such as Something Bad (HORRIBLE SONG) and I'm Not That Girl, a ballad that has no climax is EXTREMELY boring, Sentimental Man also is not needed. And the lyrics, though Stephen Schwartz has to make up words to rhyme, are much better than those in his other recent work "Children of Eden". But, even though there are low points on the soundtrack, there are some incredible songs that are delivered perfectly especially What Is This Feeling, Dancing Through Life, As Long As Your Mine, No Good Deed, For Good, and the best song in the show Defying Gravity. Idina Menzel has the most perfect voice for the part of Elphaba, the Wicked Witch, and Kristen Chenoweth is equally as talented as Glinda. Both leading ladies have been outstanding in supporting roles (Menzel as Maureen in RENT, and Chenoweth as Sally Brown in You're A Good Man, Charlie Brown) and it is nice that they have the lead roles. On the whole, i think this CD is incredible, and i hope Wicked will go far as a show.
