Synopsis

Album Description
A PROG-ROCK EXTRAVAGANZA! The music was composed and recorded especially for a 1990s relaunch of the 1925 Universal Screen version of Phantom of the Opera. The music on this recording has been re-edited, remixed and, in some cases, re-recorded in order to reflect the musical spectrum that encompassed the 90 minute epic. Covering everything from operatic rock to tearful ballads, the recording is a film in itself...without the pictures. The album features long-time colleagues Chrissie Hammond, Ashley Holt and Ramon Remedios on vocals.

CD Reviews

A Fun Album!
A. Lesley | Conway, S.C. United States | 08/13/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This cd features a new soundtrack/songtrack that Rick Wakeman created for the classic horror film, Phantom of the Opera. The film is a silent film, and Rick has created songs and instrumentals to correspond with scenes in the film. If you get a chance to see the film, do so. If not, you can still enjoy this cd. The music is full of energy and fun to listen to -- definitely one of Rick's most upbeat albums. Rick has so many different styles of music that it is hard to classify it, but I would say it resembles music from his albums "Silent Nights" and "Time Machine". Ashley Holt, Chrissie Hammond, and Ramon Remedios supply the vocals, and all three are in top form. I definitely recommend this for all Rick Wakeman fans."
PHANTOM POWER IS MUSIC PERFECTION
TIM COLLETTE | CALGARY ALBERTA CANADA | 03/13/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I'VE NEVER HEARD A RICK WAKEMAN ALBUM I DID'NT LIKE AND PHANTOM
POWER IS NO EXCEPTION.WHAT A POWERFUL COLLECTION OF SONGS WERE TREATED TO ON THIS CD.
THE MUSIC STARTS OFF WITH A PILE OF ENERGY AND NEVER LET'S UP TILL THE CD IS FINISHED.IT REMINDS ME OF THE MYTHS AND LEGENDS OF KING ARTHUR AND THE KNIGHTS OF THE ROUND TABLE WITH IT'S ENERGY AND CREATIVITY OF SONGS.
THE MORE I LISTEN TO THIS CD THE BETTER IT SOUNDS AND THE MORE I'M CONVINCED THAT RICK IS ONE OF THE BEST SONGWRITERS OF ALL TIME."
Stellar soundtrack, good luck finding the video!

"The only true blue rock soundtrack tailored for Phantom (Phantom of the Paradise has its own story..it rocks too). Get this album while it is in print because it won't stay that way.. trust me."
