Editorial Reviews

Music from the Academy Award Winning Film, Les Misérables. Les Misérables is the motion-picture adaptation of the beloved global stage sensation seen by more than 60 million people in 42 countries and in 21 languages around the globe and still breaking box-office records everywhere in its 27th year. Helmed by The King's Speech's Academy Award®-winning director, Tom Hooper, the Working Title/Cameron Mackintosh production stars Hugh Jackman, Oscar winner Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway, Amanda Seyfried, Eddie Redmayne, Aaron Tveit, Samantha Barks, with Helena Bonham Carter and Sacha Baron Cohen. Set against the backdrop of 19th-century France, Les Misérables tells an enthralling story of broken dreams and unrequited love, passion, sacrifice and redemption - a timeless testament to the survival of the human spirit. Jackman plays ex-prisoner Jean Valjean, hunted for decades by the ruthless policeman Javert (Crowe) after he breaks parole. When Valjean agrees to care for factory worker Fantine's (Hathaway) young daughter, Cosette, their lives change forever. In December 2012, the world's longest-running musical brings its power to the big screen in Tom Hooper's sweeping and spectacular interpretation of Victor Hugo's epic tale. With international superstars and beloved songs including I Dreamed a Dream, Bring Him Home, One Day More and On My Own Les Misérables, the show of shows, is now reborn as the cinematic musical experience of a lifetime.

3.0 out of 5 stars An Adequate Recording of Les Miserables March 19, 2013
By h-bond
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a comparative review of the Deluxe Recording of the Movie Soundtrack of Les Miserables Les Misérables: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack with the four best of the recordings of the musical, the Original London Cast (OLC), Les Misérables - Original London Cast Recording; the Original Broadway Cast (OBC), Les Miserables (1987 Original Broadway Cast); the Complete Symphonic Recording (CSR), Les Miserables Complete Symphonic Recording; and the 10th Anniversary Edition (10th Anniv.), Les Miserables 10th Anniversary Concert. After listening several times to each recording, I would rank the Deluxe Version of the Soundtrack below all of the recordings of the musical. The Soundtrack version has the advantage of more songs than the two original cast recordings, but has three substantial flaws that cause me to lower it's rank. First many of the songs are substantially cut, and unfortunately in many cases the cuts occur in the middle of the songs. None of the other versions has a mid-song cut. It is an execrable decision that ruins several of the songs. Second, the thing that shocked me next most in listening to this recording is the lack of intensity that the singers brought to most of the songs. There are some exceptions (such as Anne Hathaway's rendition of "I Dreamed A Dream", and Hugh Jackman's "Bring Him Home"). Read more ›

4.0 out of 5 stars Not "complete", but still great... March 19, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
While I'll admit to being relatively new to the world of Les Mis, having listened to and compared all three major cast recordings (London, Broadway, and this one), there is no question that the 2012 film soundtrack is the definitive version. While there will be many who disagree with me on this point, in my mind, it is about as close to perfect as a musical album can be, and the fact that it was all recorded live makes it even better.

I won't attempt to give a long, in-depth review of the film, the story, or music itself, but rather illuminate what makes this CD different from its predecessors.

As everyone probably knows by now, 99% percent of the vocals were recorded live as opposed to in a studio. This gives the album a rawness and virility not usually heard in cast albums, and certainly not ones from movie musicals. The songs, being sung by actors, take on a more natural and less "stagey" sound, which certainly helps heighten the feelings within the music, and makes them pack a far harder emotional wallop. This is the first musical album I've ever listened to that honestly brought me to tears. While one's opinion of what makes a great singer is incredibly subjective, I found the whole cast to have uniformly good voices, with no one seeming too out of place that they completely ruined it for me; and to anyone who complains that so-and-so doesn't sound as good as they should have, I'd like to know how good their voice would sound after 12 hours of continuous singing!

As with any kind of adaptation, there are going to be obvious differences between the old and the new, but here many of the changes are good ones: new arrangements, new incidental scoring by Schonberg, a new song for Valjean, and some extra dialogue.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Album...Could Have Fixed things Though... March 19, 2013
By iamjdn
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I loved how they added basically all the songs on the album, but I was kind of disappointed at both the casing of the CDs themselves and the editing. The album itself is made of cardboard...were we too cheap to use normal CD casing? Idk, but it seems cheap looking, but I guess it pays off for all the songs. That's what I want to stab at next. Although I love the songs and the singing, how come some of the editing seems halfa**ed? "On My Own" sounds so amazing and perfect, yet the song cuts off on her last note and is played in the next song, "One Day More." We listen to 30 seconds of the workwomen fighting in "At the End of the Day" and yet they cut off Fantine's solo singing to the foreman.

I am pretty happy that "Do You Hear the People Sing" and "A Little Fall of Rain" are on this though

3.0 out of 5 stars Beware: Some songs shortened March 19, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
First off, let me say I love the movie and its music. I bought the original "Highlights" soundtrack and couldn't wait for this "Deluxe" version to be released. I was very disappointed, though, when it arrived and I found that it contains some of the same truncated versions of the songs that were on the "Highlights" soundtrack, starting with the opening song, "Look Down." What, are they going to release a "Super Deluxe" version in a few months that gives you the full version that was in the movie? Not cool.

Still, all the music that's here is outstanding... it's great to finally own "Do You Hear the People Sing?" "Paris/Look Down" and so many other awesome songs. Just be aware that some of them are cut short, which is really tough to justify in a "Deluxe" 2-disc soundtrack.
