5.0 out of 5 stars Stellar Sherie!!!! July 8, 2010
Format:Audio CD
I sadly was unable to see "Everyday Rapture" but I purchased the CD having seen clips. Well, let me tell you that the divine Ms. Scott delivers the goods!!!! The voice is powerful and moving, the song selections are eclectic and transcendent and the performance is one for the ages. Her voice is unparalleled. She rocks, she grooves, she belts, and she takes it down and breaks your heart. I am really sad I never saw the show (Sherie, please record it or tour! PLEASE!!!) but I am glad the recording exists! Order it today-you won't be sorry. Stunning!

4.0 out of 5 stars A good recording of a great show! August 5, 2010
Format:Audio CD
I would like to add a review here, because opinions for this cast recording are woefully few and pretty much all over the map. Everyday Rapture was one of the best shows of the past theater season. Sherie Rene Scott was giving a performance that deserved a Tony. (She did earn two Tony nominations, one for Best Book and for Best Actress). The show was an extremely entertaining mix of stories, songs, cabaret and overall just great music!

On the cast recording the one major issue is that most of the dialogue from the show is left out and therefore the songs loose context. However, even if you haven't seen the show, the vocals and arrangements (by noneother than Tony award winning composer Tom Kitt) are fantastic. "The Weight" and "Up the Ladder to the Roof" are excellent. Overall the cast recording sounds good on it's own, but it really helps to have the context in which each of the songs are done. (Forget your troubles just isn't as funny without the visual of Sherie performing it to a room full of drooling nursing home patients).

The bottom line is this. Sherie is a great performer and the cast recording sounds great. It might not have the impact of seeing the show live, but few cast recordings do. It is must for anyone who remotely likes Sherie Rene Scott and a must for fans of the show.

Trivia Tidbit: The two bonus tracks included were part of the original ending off broadway.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great renditions of all songs. August 28, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The songs on this CD are great. The show "Everyday Rapture" was wonderful according to a review by Ben Brantley of the NY Times, and my daughter saw the show and thought it great. I especially like Sherie Rene Scott's singing of the song "I Guess the Lord Must be In New York City". Good performances by Sherie and all the other singers on the CD.

2.0 out of 5 stars Meh July 8, 2013
Format:Audio CD
The pleasant voices notwithstanding, this musical is pretty underwhelming. It only got to Broadway because of a last-minute hole in the Roundabout's season. It sounds like it's really a cabaret act (a lead singer with two back-up singers), and that is probably the kind of performance space in which it truly belonged.
