Xena The Musical !

"For fans of the tv series, this is a must have. This does'nt exclude others. The soundtrack for the Xena episode Bitter Suite sounds like a Broadway musical so any musicals' fan is sure to appreciate it. The lyrics are memorable and humorous (Callisto sings!) and the Xena and Gabrielle reunion song is powerfully emotional. This was a CD I knew I had to have. You should too. Give it a chance"
Xena : Rising Star

"What can I say? Xena has become a musical. At first I thought it'll be a bad idea. I thought this will destroy the myth of Xena for me. But when I got the CD, BEFORE I saw the episode if I may add (it was well before I saw the episode - half a year...), I started listenning to it. Not only that it wasn't that bad, it was GREAT and interesting to listen to. It's arranged in the same order as it was shown on TV, so you would understand the course of events. And if you listen closelly to the words, you can hear the script is right there. And what great voices to bring to life this tragedy between Gabrielle and Xena. Lucy Lawless with an awsume vocal, and the voice of Gabrielle (sadly, not of Renee O'Connor) is just, well, makes me shiver when I hear her "heart is hurting beyond words..." The absolute perfection in the making of this musical begins with the music. My hat's off for Joseph LoDuca for a well done job! I'm never tired of listenning to it!"
Well, if you liked the episode...

"While not quite the entire episode ripped to an audio file, it almost feels like it is.
The tracks are more like parts of the episode between commercial breaks than broken out by individual song. That's why I didn't give it 4 stars. This sounds great so if you've seen the episode and want the music on CD, buy it.
If you haven't and are thinking you are buying a song collection, this is more of a concept album that tells a story, being that it is the majority of the sound from the episode.
Anyway, I think this was miles better than the Buffy musical, and it was done first. I am the master of geography."
