Unfortunately i had to return this cd as it was defective. Whilst the music was great, the constant skipping made enjoyment of the product impossible. Amazon of course took it back. Should i order another.?

HASH(0xa072b150) out of 5 stars Perfect? No. But really close... June 27 2012
By Donald S. Brown - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
My husband and I saw this production in April 2012 and thoroughly enjoyed it. I have directed "Evita" twice, so I am very familiar with the show, the characters, and the score. Many people like to use choice adjectives to describe Ms. Roger's voice. To say I disagree is an understatement. First of all, others who have performed (and recorded) this role have SCREAMED their way through the entire score. Ms. Roger does indeed use a full belt when necessary, but she employs a much greater emotional range than others who have played this role and she is not afraid to use her head voice, when appropriate. Ricky Martin is fantastic, as is the great Michael Cerveris. Rachel Potter as the Mistress is the only downside for me. She lacks the innocence in her voice required for the role. I am thrilled that they recorded the entire score. The arrangements are perfect! Not too many changes...just enough to really make it work. A+

HASH(0xa07063b4) out of 5 stars Goes Beyond All Expectations June 27 2012
By Cowboy Tony - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
As a fan of the Madonna-Banderas 1996 film, I am well acquainted with all the songs, and know most of the lyrics by heart. To be honest, I waited for the release of this cd almost with trepidation, especially after viewing the cast perform two numbers on the street in front of 'Good Morning America' on April 12, 2012. Ms. Roger's voice was weak and often off-key. But as a friend pointed out, it was a damp, rainy morning and the principals probably had only a few hours sleep before their 8:20 a.m. performance on this morning show. So I bit my tongue and hoped for the best.

Well, worry no more! This recording is simply fantastic. Ricky Martin, Elena Roger, Michael Cerveris and the entire company have outdone themselves. It's one of the best Broadway albums I've heard in quite some time. What is particularly impressive (in addition to their outstanding voices) is the sharp diction applied to each lyric. I picked up on lyrics never heard before. It's a two-disc set. You won't be disappointed. In addition, there is a complete libretto enclosed--which is rarely supplied on original cast recordings.

If you wish to see some behind-the-scenes footage on the making of this excellent cd, check them out on youtube.

HASH(0xa05b0570) out of 5 stars Music is gorgeous, vocals...not so much July 1 2012
By Allen Chapman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Growing up my mom used to play the original 1979 Broadway recording nearly every weekend while she cleaned the house. So "Evita" has been drilled into my head. Over the years I picked up the original 1976 British concept album and later the Madonna soundtrack. So when I heard a new Broadway recording was coming, I was looking forward to it. The result is less than expected. First off, the music updates are perfect, the vocal performances however are very weak. Ricky Martin over enunciates through out the album, switching between a latin accent and a very hard "R" American accent (for example singing "I un-DER-stand their feelings...." rather than "I unda-stand their feelings...."). Michael Cerveris as Juan Peron is fine, but Elena Roger as Eva is completely wrong. Her voice is incredibly shrill and has too much vibrato. In fact the show's centerpiece "Don't Cry For Me Argentina" is almost unlistenable. She sounds like a cross between Tiny Tim, Gizmo from Gremlins and one of the chipmunks. The performance sounds as if it was recorded at the wrong speed, it's a mess.
Yes, I am one of those who feel that Patti Lupone's "Eva" is THE definitive Eva, but I thought Madonna did a fantastic job as well. Ms. Roger is just way out of her element here. Being that this entire show is sung, you need to act through singing, it sounds as if she has learned the lyrics, but didn't quite get the motivation behind the words. Perhaps this should have been recorded after several stage performances, so she would have gotten a better grasp of the story? Eva is supposed to sound like a woman who will rip you to shreds if you stand in her way, while sounding very sympathetic to her descamisados. She is none of that on this recording. Whoever performs the role should make you feel the anger of the military towards her, feel the love of her followers and by the end, feel sadness for her passing. Again, to pull this off you need some who can act through singing, and this is NOT an easy role to sing.
To sum it up, the musical updates are fantastic, the vocals though need some work. Honestly, I would like to see a new recording with a better Eva in the role. So for me, of the four major recordings of this show, this rates at #4 on my list behind the 1979 Broadway Cast, Madonna movie soundtrack and the 1976 original concept album.

HASH(0xa07194d4) out of 5 stars Top notch July 14 2012
By David - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Having seen and thoroughly enjoyed the new Broadway production, this CD is a brilliant keep sake. Elena Roger is for me, just perfect. No, she isn't the stereotypical Broadway diva that produces huge notes at the end of every song, but she does demonstrate a huge pathos in the role of Eva. Ms Roger grows from the innocent Miss Duarte into the feisty, power hungry Evita. Her latin American heritage brings another dimension to this central role that so many will be familiar with.
A reviewer on Amazon refers to her rendition of 'Argentina" as a "mess" - I find this unbelievable. For the first time, in my experience, Elena delivers the song as it's meant to be - in the form of a speech. I found her performance on stage, and the recording, riveting; she is also a gifted dancer.
Ricky Martin delivers a solid vocal performance (there are a few Americanisms); Michael Cerveris is an excellent and slightly menacing Peron; Max von Essen sings Magaldi brilliantly, although not overly excited with Rachel Potter.
The company vocal arrangements are solid and the orchestrations are a joy to listen too. 'Buenos Aires' is stunning!
I think SONY have dealt a trump card with this release.
I hope Elena Roger will be around for many years to come. Her performances in 'Piaf' & 'Passion' is London were a treat to behold.
It's been some 30 years since the original Broadway cast album. I will always revere that version but for me, this CD is a new, fresh realisation of what I consider to be a masterpiece of musical theatre.

Play it loud! 10/10

HASH(0xa070a4bc) out of 5 stars This soundtrack to me is July 17 2012
By Michael Ghysels - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
better than the stage performance. I saw Evita on Broadway last month and I wasn't impressed. Ricky Martin can't sing (except for during "Oh, What a Circus" and "And the Money Keeps Rollin' In (and Out)") and Elena was flat. I was expecting to get chills during "Don't Cry For Me Argentina." That didn't happen. In fact the best part of the show was the opening scene. Listening to the soundtrack, it's not as bad, but it's not amazing. The music itself despite how its sung is fanatstic and that is the main reason I give this CD 3 stars. I'm not saying don't buy it, but I'm also not saying go out and buy it. It depends if you've seen this production and what you thought of it. However, if you must own a version of Evita, it wouldn't be this one. I only purchased it because I prefer the newest BCR.
