It always amuses me when people slam Wildhorn on the "period" issue. No, they did not sing rock music during the 19th century. However, 'Les Miserables', 'Miss Saigon', 'The Phantom of the Opera', 'AIDA', and 'EVITA' (to name a few blockbusters) are as guilty as Frank's works of not being true to the "period" they are in. I would like someone to name 5 musicals that are true to their "period". It's a ridiculous argument that has NO merit.
I can understand why 'The Civil War' flopped on Broadway, but we are not discussing the Broadway show, we are discussing the concept album, which is wonderful.
I would rather have had this recording be a concept of the Broadway or Houston cast myself (I'm sick to death of Eder), but what they've lined up here is impressive and beautiful. Favorites of mine include, "Tell My Father", "Virginia", "A Candle in the Window" (even though it's Eder), "Father How Long?", and "The Honor of Your Name", to name a few. This cd is highly enjoyable throughout.
The narrative performances (especially by Garner and Glover) are truly moving and wonderfully set to some really beautiful background music. They are something that should not be skipped over, as they tell a piece of a great American story.
I've always felt that people overly attack Wildhorn.Read more ›
