This is a great cd for any SE or general musical fan!

If you are going to get a CD of 'Starlight Express', you're better off going with the Original London Cast.

I hear a lot of people gripe about how bad the vocals are on this CD but the fact is that they're not bad.

For those who saw the show on Broadway or on a U.S. National Tour, this version will be closer to what you saw than the Original London Cast Recording (OLC). I'm not sure if that's a good thing or not as the versions are quite different.
For those new to "Starlight Express", the show is a simple story of the "Little Train That Could" (U.S) or "Thomas the Tank Engine" (U.K.). The show has many common elements with "Cats" in that the bulk of the "story" is with the presentation of different kinds of trains, and there is virtually no plot.
You will like it if you like the music of Andrew Lloyd Webber, else this will reinforce your dislike of him. Personally, I find this one a guilty pleasure and am willing to look past the story shortfalls and enjoy the music (as well as the visual extravaganza that was the stage show).
For those already familiar with the OLC, this is a single CD which means there is a fair bit cut out, and the tempos are probably a bit faster than on stage to fit in the 70 minute running time. For those familiar with the Joseph revival, the same overproduced sound is present here along with a space wasting Megamix. Having had the OLC first, it did take a few listens to overcome the differences and enjoy this CD for what it is.
The revival has eliminated the C.B (the red caboose) which means "There's Me" is gone. "Only You" is now "Next Time You Fall in Love" which amounts to a push. "Freight is Great" is still here, and even though it's presented differently, it's still not a very good song. The addition of "Crazy" and "Make Up My Heart" are nice.

In my opinion, this version of Starlight Express has much better vocal performances/comic timing than the original CD. While some songs are unfortunately taken out (Only He), new ones are added, and in some cases turn out better than the songs on the original CD, mostly because of the way they are performed.
Greaseball, Electra, Dinah, Pearl, and Rusty are much better here than in the rather lifeless performances of the OLC. If you have the original album, get this one, too. You might like it less, you might like it more, but it's fun to compare. Some songs, like AC/DC and Pumpin' Iron, sound MUCH different here than in their original version.
I give the OLC 3 stars for the performances, and 4 for the music in general. This one would be 5 for performances, and 3 for the songs (I don't like the new Rap, and songs like Crazy aren't as good as some old ones that have been takes out). And for StEx fans, it's a must-have.

Comments: If you're really into Starlight Express, you will love this CD. It's really great! I like this item because it's got more exciting songs. Also get the 1984 Cast recording too. Some of my favorite songs here are "He'll Whistle At Me", "Freight", "Coda of Freight", "Crazy", "Make Up My Heart", "Starlight Sequence", and "Next Time You Fall in Love." I like to listen to this CD every single day. As you know, this is my favorite CD.

I saw the original Starlight Express in London in 1987 and fell in love with this high driving, rocking musical. My friend brought me back this new version after she saw the remake in 1997. I was a little disappointed that some of the original songs and characters were gone, but the feeling and rhythmn behind the original is here in the new version. There's a little bit of every kind of music (rock, country, dance, 50's) to appease any listener. And there is not one singer whose song you would skip. The thing I like better about this version over the original is the little boy and his commentations. It really brings the story together. Though I would recommend this CD to anyone, my heart will always belong to the original.

If you are going to get a CD of 'Starlight Express', you're better off going with the Original London Cast. Here, the sound has been improved and the songs updated, but leaves you with a less "alive" show. Caron Cardelle reduces Dinah to a stereotype that makes you want to slap her, and Greg Ellis's Rusty leaves much the same impression. With the focus much more on Pearl that any other coach or engine, Reva Rice gives us a soul-searching diva that is mostly only concerned with moaning/singing about her love life. 'Only He/Only You', when compared to the bland 'Next Time You Fall In Love', is the greatest love song ever written, as is the case of most of the new numbers. 'AC/DC', however, with a much more entertaining final verse, skips over the techno-babble to provide a glimpse of the real threat Electra and his components pose. While Maynard Williams (a much more energetic Greaseball), John Partridge (who manages to keep Electra both likeable and terrifying) and their terrific duet 'One Rock n Roll Too Many' are superb reasons to buy this recording, the OLC provides more plot, a better cast (Ray Shell, Stephanie Lawrence and Frances Ruffelle: you are sorely missed), better numbers and of course, the infamous Red Caboose.
