Overview

The union of Sarah Brightman and Andrew Lloyd-Webber may not have been the most lasting marriage on the books, but Brightman remains one of the finest interpreters of the hugely successful composer's work. The second volume of the Lloyd-Webber series, which draws from earlier albums featuring Brightman, finds the ethereal-voiced vocalist touching on songs from hit shows (Jesus Christ Superstar, The Phantom of the Opera, Evita) as well as lesser-known productions such as Whistle Down the Wind). Although her striking renditions of contemporary classics provide familiar pleasure, the six previously unreleased tracks offer the most interest. Brightman, understandably, can get under the skin of a Lloyd-Webber number like few can, be it a ballad or an up-tempo, pop-influenced tune. As long as the undisputed king of present-day theatrical song keeps pumping them out, he's sure to find a steadfast musical supporter in his former mate and muse.

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Johnny Loftus
Though six of the 14 tracks on Love Changes Everything: The Andrew Lloyd Webber Collection, Vol. 2 are tagged as "previously unreleased," that's a little misleading. Fans still get to hear Sarah Brightman singing "Too Much in Love to Care" from Sunset Boulevard, or "Make Up My Heart" from Starlight Express. But it's not as if the songs themselves are new, and the arrangements don't differentiate that much from the countless other versions out there. (Andrew Lloyd Webber's catalog alone is clogged with best of/greatest hits/encore collection redundancy.) Nevertheless, Love Changes Everything gives listeners a slightly remixed version of the title track -- its bass line is pumped up and a brass fanfare has been added -- and Brightman's ending to "Think of Me" (on a duet with Steve Barton) is pretty amazing. "Don't Cry for Me Argentina" appears in a suitably epic Spanish version, and the Joseph fave "Any Dream Will Do" is its usual jaunty self. As for the truly previously unreleased songs, Brightman's pristine, mannered delivery wins over the sugary A/C keyboards and typically ALW flourishes in "Probably on a Thursday" and "Perfect Year."

This is the kind of CD that you want to listen to over and over again. Sarah's Brightman's magnificent voice and Andrew Lloyd Webber's beautiful music. What a combination.
