Good actors, average singers

Loved this production on stage. Great sets, orchestra, acting. The problem with this recording is that it shows many of the actors's weaknesses when it comes to sing powerful numbers. Too many Mornings... Philipp Quast is stellar but Imelda can't sing it properly. And the list goes on.

I've Been Waiting For this One

It certainly took a while to get this one released. This is a great recording of the London cast!!

I rate it 5 stars. I would have rated it 4, but I decided not to. Why? The Overture isn't on this cast album, which I find totally puzzling!! That is such a glaring OMISSION to what is Stephen Sondheim's better scores.
I also find the missing tap dancing interlude in "Who's That Woman" to be a disappointment. I wish that were left in. "Losing My Mind" as sung by Imelda Staunton is vertually perfect. She acts through the pain and insanilty of the song perfectly. "I'm Still Here" is wonderfully performed by Tracie Bennet is at a slightly slower tempo than I'm used to. But it works quite well.

This cast album is a worthy addition to any Sondheim collection.
