EDITORS’ NOTES

Every crisply delivered line of Lin-Manuel Miranda's ambitious rapped musical made it onto the original cast recording, making this two-and-a-half-hour album a satisfying substitute for the Broadway experience. With classic hip-hop as its base—"Ten Duel Commandments," for example, references The Notorious B.I.G.’s "Ten Crack Commandments"—Hamilton also dazzles in its diversity. Old-fashioned R&B showtunes ("The Schuyler Sisters"), '60s pop used for comedic relief ("You'll Be Back"), and buoyant club tracks ("Helpless") all get their shot.
