I love the Canadian Cast of the Phantom of the Opera; Colm's vocals are powerful and commanding. I fought my friend in the store over this CD. It is mine now, and I can't stop listening to it. The Man of La Mancha is performed with great emotion, as well as all the songs. In every one of his performances, he always puts his soul into the song. That is why he is so powerful, one of the best vocalists around. He doesn't half do it.
These songs are different than other versions I've heard. The music is different, mostly for the better. The largest difference
I think, is in the Phantom of the Opera songs. The music is a different tempo, it's just a different feel. But I still like them. If you're a fan of Colm Wilkinson's, I'm sure you'll love this. His voice is amazing.
