Not as good as the Original London Cast
on July 2, 1999
I debated which recording of Les Miserables to buy -- London, Broadway, or 10th Anniversary -- and from listening to samples on the internet and reading reviews, I settled on the Anniversay edition. However, I regret that decision. Having now listened to the CD, I find the sound "flat." I don't know if that's due to the musical arrangements or if it's the sound of the orchestra or the voices or if it's in the recording process. I just listened to a tape of the original London cast and like that one much, much better. It has a richness and a fullness to it that sounds a world apart from the 10th Anniversary CD recording. I would recommend the London cast to anyone.
