Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Expanded edition includes a bonus disc with 11 tracks.


For better or worse, Andrew Lloyd Webber's adaptation of Gaston Leroux's gothic horror/romance novel has done for stage musicals what Spielberg's Jaws did for fish stories, with worldwide sales of its original cast album approaching 25 million. While director Joel Schumacher's film turns on his typically ambitious visual verve, its new film soundtrack recording has been paradoxically focused in scope, yet beefed up dynamically via the brawny presence of a hundred piece orchestra and the London Boys Choir. This deluxe, double-disc version showcases all of Phantom's key songs, with Gerard Butler imparting a welcome, youthful sensuality to his Phantom, making a fine foil for Emmy Rossum's ever-conflicted Christine. Original show orchestrator David Cullen has fashioned compelling new contemporary arrangements to frame Webber's songs--which now conclude with the lilting, upbeat new ballad he wrote for the film, "Learn to Be Lonely," sung by Minnie Driver. --Jerry McCulley

I LOVE All of the songs that the were sung in the movie.
I will see this film numerous times in the theatre and am waiting for my soundtrack to arrive and will be first in line to purchase the DVD.
Emmy Rossum has a great voice and Gerard Butler makes a haunting phantom.

I'm not going to write a long review on this soundtrack. Those of you who have only listened to the soundtrack but have yet to see the movie judge too soon and too harshly. All true fans of ALW's Phantom of the Opera will be impressed. The music will come together a lot better when you see the movie. I'm disappointed im myself for not being open to Gerard Butler's part as the Phantom. It's not fair for any of us to criticize him for his singing only because it's different from Michael Crawford's. I'm also not going to revolve this subject about the singers not quite measuring up or that they don't sound like the original cast of almost 20 years ago.

I believe M. Menzer said it best on their review that

"They're different singers. Their voices have different tambres. Gerard Butler is not the tenor that Michael Crawford is... Deal with it, and learn to be happy with a great soundtrack for the long awaited movie version of one of Broadway's greatest shows. December 22nd can't come quickly enough."

Please take this morsel of advice when you approach the silver screen; view the movie with an open mind and do yourself a favor; cast away the sounds of the original cast when you see it. (They're too old to take those parts again and you know it) You'll only disappoint yourself if you don't. You won't be let down, I anxiously await its release on DVD, and will probably see it a couple more times at the theater while I wait.

Many people will listen to this and immediately compare this to Sarah Brightman and Michael Crawford. People will say that Emmy Rossum is too young, and that Gerard Butler can't sing at all compared to Michael Crawford. Some people will comment that Minnie Driver, rather than being dubbed, should not have been cast as Carlotta. To these I say the following:

Christine is supposed to be a young choir girl. Sarah Brightman is not young, nor a choir girl. Emmy Rossum sang with the Metropolitan Opera when she was seven, and is the perfect age for the part. She has a beautiful, clear voice that doesn't sound (don't get me wrong, I love Sarah Brightman, but...) like her mouth is stuffed with cotton when she sings the high notes.

Michael Crawford is, anyway you look at it, WAY too old to play the sexy, mainstream appealing Phantom that a movie needs. Gerard Butler CAN sing. Don't be fooled by the deeper, fuller tambre his voice has. Deeper isn't bad. In fact, for the mainstream appeal the movie is unarguably shooting for, Gerard Butler's voice is better than Michael Crawford's; none of the tinniness that has a tendency to creep in on high notes ("But that's the Phantom!" the people will say...). Gerard Butler's Music of the Night is great (It's more impressive to be able to reach those notes without having to resort to high falsetto, guys, it gives a fuller, deeper tone.); listen to it and pretend you've never heard Michael Crawford. It's by no means bad, or anything close. I enjoyed it. And his Point of No Return runs circles around Michael Crawford's.

The one constant in every review of the movie (not the soundtrack, the actual movie) is that Minnie Driver's performance as Carlotta is brilliant.

I'm a Phan and proud to be one. I've seen the stage-show several times plus I own every recording of POTO available. Why does this recording, despite being lambasted by Michael Crawford fanatics, stand out? Reason 1 is the impeccable orchestra and the improved sound. Plus the tempi of the conductor are way superior. Nr. 2 would be the cast. Fresh and new without any baggage they deliver sincere and intense performances. The lead is sung and acted by Gerard Butler. He is one of the few actors whose private persona disappears when he's on screen, even his appearance changes with every part he plays, unlike other Hollywood-Hunks who always play themselves (Brad Pitt...*Cough* Orlando Bloom...*Cough Cough*) He has had over a year of vocal coaching and training before he tackled the role of the Phantom and it shows. I'm one of those who prefers the Phantom to be sung by a rich voice, like Brad Little, Anthony Warlowe, Peter Karrie and Ethan Freeman and not by tenors like Crawford who sound bloodless at times. (Crawford's "Down once more" couldn't scare a mouse) While not yet perfectly controlled Butler's rich baritone sounds perfect for the Phantom, also his ability to shade and colour phrases, to act with his voice is incredible. One thing I love is his "Christine, I looooooooooooooooove......you!" Not spinning a long phrase that merely sounds pretty Butler spins a gorgeous piano and then ends on a firm vocal attack mixed with a sigh of fear until the "you" comes out like a cry for mercy. (Burn, Christine, burn for hurting a precious soul like that) Another detail is the soaring pianissimo on "Touch me! Trust me!". Others sing this as an order, Butler sings it as a gentle plea, absolutely magical. There are MANY more, I just wanted to give you an idea.Read more ›

First of all, let me begin by saying that this is a marvelous score and I am extremely disappointed that some people can't get past the fact that these people are very different from the original cast. I am an opera student and have been for many years. I have seen the original version with Crawford and Brightman and while I can agree that they were great in their time, Rossum and Butler bring a new life to the music.

Brightman's Christine sounds old, she slurs, she just overdoes it. I completely agree with another reviewer when they remind people that Christine is supposed to be untrained. There is a reason why she needs the tutelage of her Angel Of Music. Rossum's voice is clear, her annunciation is perfect and she is youthful. She has life and charisma that frankly, when I reheard the original cast recording, Brightman lacked. I love Brightman, don't get me wrong, but she is not the ideal Christine. Rossum's Think of Me was beautiful, whereas Brightman was a bit too powerful for being a chorus girl. True, Christine is supposed to blow people away, but for a 17 year old, Rossum blew me away.

Moving on to Butler. I adored him. Trust me, it is not easy to bring high notes to life without using a falsetto. I admit that when I first heard a preview of the soundtrack, I was a bit put off by how it sounded. Then I saw the movie and all that changed. I immediately bought the extended version after I left the theatre because I was enthralled by Butler. His voice is rich and powerful. Crawford's voice grated on my nerves after awhile but Butler's voice is simply haunting. He captures the essence of Erik beautifully and brings to his character new sensuality that Crawford did not posses. In Why So Silent, Butler is dark and amazing.
