Barnes & Noble - David Cohen
Mamma Mia! is a new musical that uses the music of Abba to float an enchanting fairy-tale about a young bride-to-be's efforts to find her long-lost father. A smash-hit in London, this whispy and sweet story is put over with punch and pizzazz on this rapturous original cast album. Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus, the creative team behind the superstar Swedish quartet, have dressed up their show with nearly two-dozen 1970s classics, all engagingly performed and arranged to highlight the youthful and talented cast. Fiesty Siobhan McCarthy belts out the highlights "The Winner Takes It All," "S.O.S." and "Super Trouper" while "Dancing Queen," "Voulez-Vous" and "Gimme Gimme ...

Mamma Mia!'s score of familiar ear-candy will be a delightful greatest hits collection for some and a bunch of terrific contemporary show songs to others. Either way you'll say "I Do I Do I Do" to this delicious confection.

    I play this all the time.

    I am a teacher and I play MAMA MIA on the way to and from work as well as in my room during my planning period. The music is dynamic and uplifting. The entire cast pays great homage to the original ABBA group. There is a thrill and energy that just flows through the speakers. I heartily recommend the MAMA MIA CD.

    I love this soundtrack

    I was not an Abba fan until we saw this stage show. Now, I can't get their music out of my head. We're loving listening to the cast album although I'm still not completely used to the fact that the cast has British accents for the most part. I'm also sorry it doesn't include "Waterloo" which they always sing as an encore.

I consider Mamma Mia! my happy CD because everytime I'm bored or upset, I put this on and I'm back on my feet singing and dancing along with the music. Mamma Mia! is must have.

    The Very Best That Broadway Has To Offer

    I've seen this show on Broadway four times and I intend to see it as often as I can. The music is sensational and the story quite good. The show has you dancing in the aisles and singing out loud. I'm going to purchase the Canadian version as I already have the London version. The Canadian version seems to have several more songs on the CD.

    "Mamma Mia" keeps you singing!

    I saw this show when it came to Rochester, NY. I thought it was one of the greatest shows ever to come to the stage. I was dancing and singing throught the whole thing! Great for families to see together!

    Great CD, but does no justice to U.S. Casts!

    The recording of the original cast is good, and I cant stop listening to it. I have had the chance to see the 2nd touring cast featuring Monique Lund, believe me, this cast if far better than the Broadway cast and the 1st touring cast. Monique's voice is phenomonal during The Winner Takes it All. There needs to be a cd with this cast, too bad she is leaving in Febuary! :( until then this cd will have to do.

    Mamma Mia!

    I loved the Broadway Show Mamma Mia that I went to see in NYC yesterday with my Art Class. One of the main lead actors Sky played by Joe Machota was such a cutie! I would see it again and again I had great seats! The cd just doesn't do the play justice, but it's as good as I'm gonna get to the real thing. You HAVE to see the NYC Show the actors and actresses were amazing!

    I FINALLY SAW MAMMA MIA ON BROADWAY YESTERDAY

    When I came into the theater I saw a guy selling the cd and the souvier book, I asked him how much they are, they are the same price as every other show. Then when we were at our seats, the family next to us got the cd already, I really annoyed because my mom and sister said wait to get the cd at home, the souvier book just okay the cd and the souvier book, I waited almost years to see the show, I wanted both of them. At the start of the intermission I got them from the guy who I asked about prices, they really glad I got them, same here. I listen to cd on our way home from the play and I have it in my cd case. Sorry for my grammar. Thank you.

    You can be a dancing queen too!!

    This CD is only okay, I bought it immediately after I saw the show in Boston. I would definitely recommend going to go see it. "Dancing Queen" and "Super Trouper" are probably the best songs on the CD. However, I cannot believe that the only soundtrack is the original London cast. I think one needs to be made with Dee Hoty and the rest of the most talented US tour cast.

    Absolutely Amazing

    Mamma Mia was just a marvelous performance! It kept you on your toes singing and dancing! The music was just fantastic, with songs like "Mamma Mia", "Dancing Queen", and "Money, Money, Money". It was definately worth going to see and is strongly recommended! ENJOY!

    Makes everyone a Dancing Queen

    Brings back good memories of seeing the London cast and the Los Angeles cast. It feels like you are seeing the great ABBA show all over again.

    Great re-acquaintance with Abba in Fun Musical.

    Simple love story but fun musical score using the musical hits from Swedish group ABBA of the seventies. ''Dancing Queen'' and ''Take a Chance on Me'' great fun! Real toe tapper throughout the entire score.

    Dee Hoty Rocks

    I can't believe there is not a recording of Dee Hoty singing in this musical. I was so disappointed after I listened to the cd and heard a less than Dee Hoty voice. It was the highlight of my season seeing this musical. I usually hate musicals, but this one was unusual, and the lead had such a beautiful voice. My entire family swooned.
