5.0 out of 5 stars Freshest thing on Broadway
After the booming years of the 80's, Broadway has seen a serious decline in fresh new musicals. The last 5 years have been nothing but revivals and below average new material. Avenue Q seems to have overcome the staleness of Broadway with a fresh new story and concept along with great writing, great direction, and great appeal. The story line is a pure original and the...

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as creative as I hoped...
I decided to purchase this CD after reading many of the reviews by Amazon customers. I did not find the musical as creative or ground-breaking as some. Don't get me wrong, I do not regret buying the CD and it will retain a well-deserved spot on my musical shelf. I did enjoy it and do recommend it to anyone interested. But I wouldn't say I "highly" recommend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Avenue Q has great songs, July 19 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Avenue Q (Audio CD)
I saw the show in Vancouver and wanted the soundtrack. The one I ordered from you was faulty, so I returned it. I heard from you to say I would receive a credit, but I actually wrote on my return I wanted another CD, so I'm still wondering which will happen?

2.0 out of 5 stars Am I missing something!?, July 16 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: Avenue Q (Audio CD)
Its funny how a whole bunch of people can swear by a CD and you buy it with the hopes that it meets or exceeds your high expectations..and then, wham! You play it and your left scratching your head and wondering what on earth all the fuss is about!?
First off all, the songs are funny...I will give it that. But to me it seems this show actually tries too hard in making you laugh. This CD lacks a solid story, a bit of something to keep you listening. And after ten minutes, my fiance was literally begging me to turn the "sesame-street-gone-wild" CD off. It actually gets quite annoying with songs like "My girlfriend who lives in Canada" and worse yet, "Im not wearing underwear today" (which would be OK, if it werent sung by a cookie monster sound-a-like with a cold, I simply cant get past the awful voice.)
Of course, with any album, including musical theater, there are great songs that leave you wishing for more...
I loved "Purpose" and "Mix Tape" and "Everyone's a little bit racist". I suppose you have to take the good with the bad... but Im not sure I will ever listen to this again. Maybe I am missing something...but skip this buy. Borrow it from a friend or something, or if you really want it I'll happily give you mine. (My fiance will be greatful to get it out of the house!)
