Who's responsible for this...thing?

"This is bad. This is so bad. My friend listened to it and became physically ill. The synthesizer music is cheesy. Javert's and Valjean's voices are too high, while Marius's is too low. The singers, though on-tune, not only have no emotion whatsoever, but also sing choppily, with over-precise rhythms that make them sound like music machines. And to top it off, when they feel that a song isn't long enough, they'll repeat the last few verses. Hello. We want to hear *less* of your voices, not *more.*Don't buy this even if they offer to pay you. No, wait: buy it, take the money, then stake the CD and bury it at a crossroads."

"Why do they even bother? Do they seriously think that something like this will a) be good, and b) sell any copies? Les Miserables is a masterpiece of theatre and no wonder it swept the world, but we already have plenty of recordings thank you very much, without having to add this one to the collection!The singers have no emotional motives nor sound as though they should be doing this show. As for the backing music (which I suspect is all the work of a computer) - don't even go there: slow, twangy, electronic and corny.So I urge you, with so many other fine recordings out there, don't buy this one."
THIS SHOULDN'T EVEN BE A STAR

"This record IS BITTER, GROTESQUE, AND ALMOST CRUEL. in any great musical, there is an orchestra. if you have heard the older and BETTER versions of this song, you would agree. i would vomit, cry, and beg for my money back if i ever saw Les Mis or any other great musical that had bad voices and that [bad] COMPUTER MUSIC like there is on this record. so if you are a respectable person, buy another version of this record."
