Overview

The Best of Rent: Highlights from the Original Cast Album

Dense and gritty, the hugely successful "Rent" has infused much-needed energy and joie de vivre into the contemporary American musical. THE BEST OF RENT collects nearly two dozen lyrical highlights on one CD, offering a whirlwind tour through the most ambitious theatrical score of the decade. The brilliant original cast -- which included such ready-for-prime-time new faces as Adam Pascal, Daphne Rubin-Vega, Taye Diggs, and Jesse L. Martin -- soar through the well-known showstoppers, "Seasons of Love," "Out Tonight," "La Vie Boheme," and the title song, as well as more offbeat, but equally marvelous, musical moments as "Today 4 U," "Tango: Maureen," "Sante Fe," and "Will I?" Also included is Stevie Wonder's buoyant take on "Seasons of Love."

This was such a great sountrack and musical. Also, you should get the original version of this, it is just called "Rent". I love how this musical was based on Puccini's "La Boheme". This is great! "Rent" will be soon everywhere.

I was studying this musical in my Language Arts class and the music and singing is just great. Rent is really the kind of musical that can inspire and it is a recent one. One of the best song's on this CD is Light My Candle. I think people who are just really into all kinds of music should buy this CD even if they haven't seen the live musical.

After i owned the cast recording of RENT, i looked for other RENT-related cds. I found this. I looked at the songs that this cd featured, and i was very upset. There are some incredible songs like "Goodbye Love" which are left out, and some songs, like "Will I" which i think should not be on there. I'm not saying this cd is bad, I'm just saying it's lacking some of the key songs that make RENT so incredibly amazing.

i saw the play in san francisco(2nd night)and was spellbound! no day but today has come my mantra! the play speaks to humanity and what it really means to have love,lose love, find love and true friendship. This play should be mandatory for our youth to make sure that love one another,because they are the future.

I am devoted to Rent and I love it sooo much and was really excited when I found that they made a "highlights" album, because though I love all the songs on the original album, It is a little annoying to have to switch between two CD's. I was very dissapointed when looking at the song's though that they didnt include "Goodbye Love", as it is (in my oppinion) one of the best songs in act two. Other then that it's a great CD, but you I would not buy this instead of the original!
