Some of the songs are so beautiful, with amazing harmonies.
Taylor McDaniel
I've made all of my friends listen to this CD, and now they want to buy it, even the ones who don't necesarily like show tunes- that's how good it is!!
Natasha Mortazavi
Julia Murney is a great Queenie, as is Idina Menzel in the role of Kate.

I just recently purchased this CD and was instantly blown away by the music and the TREMENDOUS singers. The cast of 19 features some old faces as well as new. Brian D'Arcy James (Barett of TITANIC) potrays Burrs, the Vaudeville clown involved with Queenie, potrayed by fabulous newcomer Julia Murney. Kate, the prostitute, who longs for Burrs is played by familiar face Idina Menzel (Maureen of RENT) Kate's date for the WILD PARTY is Black, who instantly becomes entranced with Queenie's beauty and sadness, is played by rising star Taye Diggs (Benny of RENT, HOW STELLA GOT HER GROOVE..., GO). Other notable party goers include Alex Kori (who stood by for B. Buckley in TRIUMPH OF LOVE), Raymond Jaramillo McLeod (Peron in National Tour EVITA), and Jennifer Cody (Silly Girl of BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, Cha Cha of GREASE)
All the songs are phenomenal and energetic. Everyone here is a triple threat. The singers are sensational. I couldn't believe my ears on some of the belting harmonies that occur. Julia Murney, just absolutely steals the show. Her powerful voice can be compared to the DIVA, Alice Ripley! The shear power and emotion behind Julia's voice in songs like "Out of the Blue" "Maybe I Like It That Way" and "How Did We Come To This" is just incredible. Playing her opposite is Brian D'Arcy James, who does not upset at all with his maniacal "Make Me Happy" and a more tender "What Is It About Her?" His voice is strong, clear and powerful, and gives us a nice earful of his belting ability.
Taye Diggs sings his smoothe and sultry songs, his character seems to be the only one who feels anything. He is very distraught over what is going on between Burrs and Queenie.

Wow. The life of this exuberant and passionate WILD PARTY has translated so well to CD. Having seen the show at Manhattan Theatre Club earlier this spring, I can tell you that this recording is simply amazing. The voices are tremendous, especially Julia Murney (Queenie), who's heartbreakingly expressive as she sings "Maybe I Like It This Way" and lights a diva fire with "Raise the Roof". Idina Menzel (Kate) rocks the house with "Life of the Party" and "Look at Me Now." Brian D'Arcy James voice is completely magnetic as he portrays of Burrs, Queenie's abusive lover -- when he unravels during "Let Me Drown" (those of us who saw the show) you know this was one of the great moments of this year's theater season. Taye Diggs played Black -- and his voice is just a slice of heaven! When these four sing "Poor Child" -- it's mesmerizing to hear their voices weave over one another as they express their different points of view. The number is vaguely operatic, yet completely accessible.
The CD has almost every number from the show (with the exception of one song, I think) -- and you can pretty much follow the story by listening along. Of course at some point, you'll probably feel like hitting your kitchen dance floor on ensemble numbers like "Wild, Wild Party" or "The Juggernaut"!
What more can I say? These are real songs that stick with you, long after you've left the theater or turned off the stereo. This is stuff you want on full blast at your own Wild Party! Enjoy!

Format: Audio CD
It's very hard for me to give this album less than 4 stars. For a long while, it's been in perpetual rotation on my iTunes, and right from the start it's been one of my favorite cast albums. But a few days ago, I listened to the entire record straight through, and came to a painful conclusion -

Andrew Lippa is a terrible lyricist. I mean, really, not just bad, terrible. "Tasty, like birds of prey 'round the hors 'oeuvres tray"? "Will he really die for you, or is that just the after-dinner show"? "Let's get out there and tear up the carpet-mat"? Taken out of context, they may seem a little out of wack, but when set to music, the effect is uncomfortable - Lippa's fond of sacrificing logic for the sake of matching rhythm and rhyme. I simply can't take Brian D'Arcy James seriously when he's belting "HE WAS A VERY SCARY CLOOOOOWN!" at the top of his lungs.

Which brings me to the selling point of the record - actually, the two selling points. One is Lippa's score. Holy Christ, the music NEVER lets up here - it gets the pulse pumping, the heart racing, and it makes you want to reach out and grab the nearest seven people for a night of debauchery. Lippa's pastiche of hot jazz, funk, gospel, pop and rock, while not exactly period-appropriate, is endlessly fun to listen to. And the extreme vocal demands of the score are more than matched by the cast. Julia Murney belts ALL of her songs right out of the park (and I do mean all - Lippa writes songs for women more or less in dog's-ear range), Brian D'Arcy James' clear tenor constantly astonishes with its range while expressing a huge display of emotion and character, and Idina Menzel gives everything she has to her showcase numbers, growling and screaming and generally setting the mic on fire.
