"When I bought this CD, I knew nothing about it. I had heard the shortened version of "1, 2, 3" on the Hey, Mr Producer! video. I knew that John Barrowman (drool...) was in it, and that Philip Quast was, too (after hearing him as Javert in Les Miz, I fell in love with his voice),so I figured I should give it a try, why not? Well, I fell in love with it the 1st time I heard it! Don't be turned off by the fact that its about politics-- I have absolutely no interest in politics whatsoever, and I still love it. John Barrowman is Cal, a drug-addicted, unmotivated slacker who is forced by his power hungry mother to enter the world of politics. Barrowman has a gorgeous voice and puts lots of emotion into all his songs. Not bad looking either!! And Philip... he plays Grahame, Cal's cynical,crippled uncle who happens to have a slight crush on Cal. I love all the songs- especially 1,2,3, Cal's opening number which expresses his philosophy of life, America's Son, in which Cal is taught all he needs to know about politics, and First Came Mercy, where Grahame tells of his life as a cripple. The whole score is very fast and edgy-like nothing else I've ever heard before. I mean, have you ever heard a musical before where half the time, the main character is tripping on acid? You should get this CD. Trust me you'll love it!"
