"I saw the musical in NYC for my birthday in April. I'm 22, my family came, mom, dad, 8yr old sister, and best friend who is 21. WE ALL LOVED IT, every age group. I ran to the souvenir line to get the CD but I HAD TO WAIT until (they predicted June 8th I got it June 4th or so) it was recorded. It cost THIRTY dollars there; it's only 12.99 on AMAZON! I'm so mad I didn't check Amazon first.
As far as the music goes:
Some of the songs are so touching, like "Happy/Sad," it literally brings me to tears, and most of the songs are HYSTERICAL, like "In the Arms (of a squid)". Every time I listen to the soundtrack I am back in my seat in NYC watching Nathan Lane and Bebe Neuwirth perform. My favorite songs are "Crazier Than You," "Live Before We Die," "Happy/Sad," and the "Moon and Me." It was hard for me to pick favorites though.
I have to admit some of the songs sound familiar, like they are from other musicals. I tried looking up their titles but only found the Addams Family as results. Regardless they are ALL phenomenal the cast really adds spark to them.
Overall I love this CD. I listen to it over and over again. I'm really glad I purchased it even though it cost me 30 dollars I think it was worth it. I would definitely recommend it and I would especially recommend getting it from AMAZON because it's so much more affordable!
Ps. GO SEE THE MUSICAL ON BROADWAY! Forget what the critics said! It's hysterical and even a little heart moving!
