CD Reviews

I couldn't agree less

"I couldn't agree less with the other reviewer. The album starts with a wonderful rendition of "Sunset Boulevard" . Neither too soft nor too light. The two tracks from "Phantom of the Opera" were taken from the 2nd studio recording with John Barrowman as Raoul. They are IMO superior to the recording from the original London cast because unlike in the OLC production the voice of Christine doesn't overpower Raoul but has them on equal levels, which makes the songs a real listening pleasure. If you love musicals and a strong vocal performance then get yourself this CD. I highly doubt you will be dissapointed."
So glad I didn't let the negative reviews get to me.

"I purchased this with some trepidation given what others had said, and I'm so glad I did. I love Lloyd Weber's music and Barrowman's voice, so put the two together, and I can't lose. Several of these songs are duets, but I found that didn't bother me at all, especially on "All I Ask Of You", "High Flying Adored", and "Too Much In Love To Care". ("Think of Me" is the only one I questioned because he contributes very little to it.) I already loved "Whistle Down the Wind" and "Sunset Boulevard" from John's "Reflections of Broadway" CD, and "Love Changes Everything" is simply beautiful and my hands-down favorite from this disc.

I understand the criticisms about the duets and the (2) tracks that repeat on other CD's, but I found this a wonderful addition to my collection with several beautiful songs not available elsewhere. It's worth mentioning that this was his first CD, and from what I've read, it was originally a "mini-CD" of only 6 tracks, with 3 added later on a re-release. I'm so glad I didn't pass this over."
Maybe it should be "best of" cd

"As a long-time fan of John Barrowman, having seen him in "Anything Goes" in 1989 in London and many productions since, I generally buy everything he records. But, whoever has been guiding him in his recording choices has made very few good decisions. Many of his recordings sound like they have been done in someone's garage, particularly his recordings on the Jay label. If you have seen him live you know that his voice is much more impressive than any of the albums reveal. All of that said, it sounds like several of the tracks on this cd were not re-recorded but simply lifted from previous albums and that is a disappointment. I have been waiting for one album that is a complete new recording session done in a real studio. This isn't it. But I still bought it."
