Format: Audio CD
I bought this CD thinking it was a newly released highlights CD of the Original London Cast CD with Colm Wilkinson, Patti LuPone, Michael Ball & Francis Ruffle. IT'S NOT! What a great way to get people to bye the CD. I really haven't listened to it because I was disgusted at the fact that I was lured into buying a CD under false pretences! (I did listen to some and it sounds like Kareoke music and Fantine was vocally weak. This is not a cast recording but a STUDIO RECORDING.) I can tell you the actors who sing the parts though (Something I would've wanted to know before buying, but I didn't have that chance, so here it is.)
VALJEAN & JAVERT = John Curl, FANTINE & COSETTE = Lindsey Stafford Smith, MARIUS= Christopher Smith, ENJOLRAS= Adam Pinter, THENARIDIER=Julian Emery, M. THENARDIER= Catherine Watson.
Uhhh, why have the same man sing 2 different parts. Okay, maybe I can see the same woman singing the mother and daughter, but the rivals?
Song List: AT THE END OF THE DAY,--I DREAMED A DREAM,--WHO AM I?,--FANTINE'S DEATH, --CONFRONTATION, --MASTER OF THE HOUSE, --STARS, --ABC CAFE, --RED AND BLACK, --DO YOU HERE THE PEOPLE SING, --A HEART FULL OF LOVE
Songs only from Act I of Les Miz!
Anyhow, the singers could turn out to be good for all I know, but I was just upset that it wasn't what it said it was. Although it wasn't listed as having Colm and Patti it did say "Original London Cast." So, at least now you can purchase this CD fully aware that it's not the London Cast! :)

This was a hard to find item for a price like this. I have heard several versions of this show and still feel this is the best soundtrack.

This is an excellent reproduction of the full show. It was as if I were, again, attending the play.

Les Mis is a great musical... This is not a great soundtrack, but it's the only affordable one Amazon sells(figure that out)...
The first time I saw Les Mis was at a small local high school. It was pretty bad, for the most part, but the musicians as well as some of the actors redeemed the performance. Valjean was excellent, Thernardier was pretty good, but most of all, the musicians in the performance performed quite well. The premise of a MUSICAL is for it to BE musical, and have good quality instrumental music as well as good quality acting... ideally. This recording has one of the above...
I was looking forward to getting this version, but when I actually got it, I started listening to the songs and was rather disappointed. I can sit down at my computer and probably write an arrangement to accompany the performance of Les Mis in cheap quality MIDI and have it sound better than this.
For example, in tracks 5 and 8, the background part has some kind of guitar or something or other and it just sounds absolutely terrible. I Dreamed a Dream is generally considered to be one of the better songs in the entire musical, and it's a shame that it has to get virtually ruined with this kind of tacky synthetic sound... But this happens to many of the songs.
Three stars for the effort, for it being Les Mis, and for the singing being decent. I just think it's terrible when a great musical has to have such a terrible, tacky sounding 'orchestral' accompaniment.

This Broadway album is much better than the slow-paced London album, but two other recordings top it: the Complete Symphonic Recording and the 10th Anniversary Concert Recording. What's good about the CSR is that, as the description says, it's "complete." It containes all the numbers you'll need if you want to listen to them over and over again. Performance-wise, however, the TAC Recording remains the best. It is graced, indeed, of The Dream Cast. As many reviewers have noted, for instance, the superiority of Lea Salonga both in voice and interpretation as Eponine over "sad" Kaho Shimada (CSR) and "whiny" Frances Ruffelle (OBCR and OLCR) is very clear on the TAC recording. If you can afford only one album, get the TAC version. Otherwise, add the CSR. These two should be enough to satisfy your craving for Les Mis albums.

The Broadway cast album of LES MISERABLES is different in a lot of ways to the original London album. Though a few of the performers followed the show Stateside, the overall tone of the shows seems lighter and more airy than the London album. Is this a good thing for LES MISERABLES? I don't know, but I do know that I get a lot of enjoyment out of listening to this particular version of the score. Frances Ruffelle reprises her role of Eponine from London, and sounds quite different. She sounds more American in her singing, and gets to play opposite a new Marius (David Bryant). Colm Wilkinson again takes the role of Valjean though his performance hardly varies. Randy Graff replaces Patti LuPone in the role of Fantine and gives the role a new spin. Though LuPone made Fantine's despair and downfall an almost palpable intensity, Graff's Fantine slowly moves towards her destruction. Both performances are great, but if I want to have a really good cry I play the LuPone version. Jennifer Butt and Leo Burmester are highly-comical as the Thenardiers', and Judy Kuhn is a perfect Cosette. Terrence Mann is still one of the all-time best Javert's. If you've already purchased the London album, then I wholly recommend that you experience the Broadway version.
