EDITORS’ NOTES

Lin-Manuel Miranda’s smash Broadway show celebrating the life of Founding Father and American icon Alexander Hamilton winds its tale ingeniously around a series of sinuous hip-hop and R&B grooves. The twists and turns of Hamilton’s complex story mirror the deft, sometimes tongue-twisting turns the performers take in their delivery. It’s not all hip-hop; the ’60s-influenced pop of “You’ll Be Back” and the classical influence of “Take a Break” underline Miranda’s range, and it all adds up to a visionary redefinition of musical theater.

Lin-Manuel Miranda ,

Amazing

An amzing musical and it is all i listen too but buying on itunes is a wate of money as it is much more expensive than the CD wich you can just rip on to the computer.

Stunning

‘Hamilton’ is magnificent – as good as anything I’ve seen or will see in the theatre, I suspect. Intelligent, witty, melodic, punchy and above all clear. I couldn't call it contemporary, for it is whatever comes after contemporary. Lin-Manuel Miranda has tremendous presence and gravitas and delivers such an honest performance. I imagine this must be what it would have felt like watching Oklahoma or West Side Story or Sweeney Todd when they opened – you don’t watch ‘Hamilton’, you witness it – a cultural landmark that exposes almost every other show on Broadway. This cast album captures beautifully the defining theatrical event of its time.

Amazing!

Flew to NYC from London to watch this as the end of August, there is not enough that can be said about it! Hands down an awe inspiring production. Lin is a lyrical genius. This album is on loop and will be for a long time! Hamilton will definitely be on Broadway for a very, VERY long time!
