the judas can't sing. in the movie, his acting saved his butt. and on this recording...where are the Priests??? they're song "jesus must die" and "blood money" aren't on here. those are two of the best songs.
if you want a REALLY good recording, look at the 1996 double-disc London Studio Cast recording with Steve Balsamo as Jesus, Zuni Varla as Judas, Glen Carter as Simon Zealotes, and Alince Cooper as King Herod. the "new stage recording" with Glen Carter as Jesus is terrible. in Gethsemane, Glen carter was unable to hold that one note on "...see how i DIE..." but on the double disc, the Jesus blew me away by holding that not for a wopping 23+ seconds! (breath control). save yourself the unhappines by puchasing the incomplete version. get the other one.
there you go. enjoy.
there is ONE plus about the MOVIE...the Annas is "like a little warlock." shaved head, pale face, long, black robe..."divo"
