Editors’ Notes From How I Met Your Mother to hosting the Tony Awards to his budding film career, Neil Patrick Harris is quickly becoming one of his generation's most wide-ranging talents. Now he's won a Tony himself for his performance as transgender rocker Hedwig on the inaugural Broadway run of Hedwig & The Angry Inch (which debuted Off-Off-Broadway in 1998). Channeling rock gods Tina Turner, David Bowie, and Iggy Pop, Harris leaves it all on the stage on this album, which was recorded with barebones brio in a Williamsburg studio. Whether it's the Pink Floyd–like ballad "Wicked Little Town," the punk fury of "Angry Inch," or the lighter-waving majesty of the showstopper "Midnight Radio," Harris nails the indomitable passion of this now-classic musical's title character.
