"Lloyd Webber's final collaboration with Tim Rice culminated in this fine musical/opera, Evita. It tells the story of the rise to power of Argentinan Eva Peron who married Juan Peron and reformed the country. This musical has a concept album, Broadway and London cast recordings, a recording of the recent film, but also - this. This studio recording tries to make the best of the singers/actors and the band they have, but unfortunately this recording loses to lack of talent!I'm sorry to say it, but Alice Haywood as Eva is dreadful. Gone is the singing, gone is the acting, all we are left with is a poorly pronouncing, screaming, annoying, unmoving performance. I would be grateful if Ms. Haywood would kindly inform me as to where 'Bwaynoz Ayreez' is!Other performances are bearable, but the band loses the lyrical touches of Lloyd Webber's score, leaving this an unmoving, unanything recording!"
