5.0 out of 5 stars A great recording from a beautiful and talented singer October 31, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I loved this cd, and I also have all of Michelle's other solo cd's of children's music. Her voice is unique. I enjoyed the selection of songs she chose, especially the song "Seasons Of Love" from "Rent". As with some of Varese Sarabande's other recent recordings, there is a hidden track at around the 7 minute mark of Michelle singing the song "Disneyland" from the never released show "Smile". If you buy this recording and like it, try the soundtrack of "Masada", starring Michelle and Davis Gaines. I highly recommend this cd!

5.0 out of 5 stars A unique voice & style! December 28, 1999
By Ray
Format:Audio CD
Michelle Nicastro is a marvel. She doesn't sound like every other Broadway ingenue; instead, she's got a sound that's uniquely her own. There's a "pop" feel to her voice. She's a bit breathy and intense, and sings with a youthful exhuberance that is hard to resist. She's also got great taste in songs, opting to sing modern tunes from shows like "Big" and "Jekyll & Hyde" instead of overly familiar numbers from the '40s and '50s. This disc also features bright, imaginative orchestrations, especially Andrew Lloyd Webber's "Come Back With the Same Look In Your Eyes," which sounds like something recorded at a blues club. Definitely check this disc out.

5.0 out of 5 stars A dynamite disc October 1, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Maybe I have a soft spot for Michelle -- she was raised in Arizona -- but she's a terrific singer, and this is the best album she's done. It's a collection of contemporary Broadway songs and shows off her bright range and charming delivery. My favorite would have to be ALL I ASK OF YOU from PHANTOM OF THE OPERA -- she does it slow and sexy, like Julie London!

4.0 out of 5 stars Contemporary beauty June 10, 2002
By efrex
Format:Audio CD
I long ago wore out my cassette (remember cassettes?) of Michelle Nicastro's "Toonful" album, one of my favorite Varese Sarabande releases, so I guess it was only natural that I finally got around to picking up this album.
Considering her success in Les Miserables on the West coast, it's not surprising that Michelle's tastes turn towards the contemporary "big" broadway sound, with Les Mis, Miss Saigon, Chess, Phantom and Jekyll & Hyde (what, no "Cats?") represented. While these are not my favorite shows by any stretch of the imagination, Nicastro demonstrates that even a pop sound can be a lovely one. The musical arrangements are, appropriately, heavily pop-influenced (half these tracks sound like something you might hear on top-40), and in this case it works.
Highlights include a fantastic version of "Waiting for Life to Begin" (a truly theatrical pop number from "Once on this Island"), and the hidden final track, a powerful rendition of "Disneyland" from the Hamlisch flop Smile. The major negative for me is hearing the money note from "Unexpected Song" sung as a simple pop plaint, rather than the death-defying finale that Bernadette Peters and others give it, and the fact that I'm simply not fond of a lot of the tracks, no matter who sings them ... . To see and hear what a lovely thing Nicastro's become (A glance at the eye-popping liner photos might turn any red-blooded he-man into a fellow musical theater fan), however, is worth sitting through much worse.
