"This Concept CD of Wuthering Heights is only a good attempt at a classic, but to compare it would explain why it may fail to impress the masses, but their are 3 truly beautifully crafted tracks on here, 'He's Gone' , 'I belong to the earth' and 'Up here alone with you'.Dave Willetts ( Heathcliff ) is not vocally masculine enough to support such tragically written lyrics, however opera diva Leslie Garrett ( Cathy ) is very good and emotively captures the lament and despair in her tracks. It would be hard to convince people to buy this CD for a number of reasons , for instance its inconsistent and many tracks with exception to those aforementionded are ineffective and nauseating but the sheer force of poetry, musical composition, and inspirational vocals on 3 tracks is in itself worth buying it for. You dont have to be a theatre thespian to like it , its probably better for those with a completely open mind.
For the record an old friend of mine lost a relative who chose 'I belong to the earth' to be played at her funeral and everyone sobbed and asked her 'Who sang that record' ? - YOUR CHOICE THOUGH."
