Next chapter in my musical history…

Almost everyone criticizes Andrew Lloyd Webber. Frequently saying his music is kitsch.

I can understand that, I really do. But there’s some of his work that really stands out.

For me, Jesus Christ Superstar is the greatest musical ever written. You will argue with Sweeney Todd and The Nightmare Before Christmas. And I’ll say they’re great, but nothing compared to JCS.

I grew up with it, so I may be biased, but the fact is I’m able to sing it, song by song, word by word. And this says a lot about the longterm effects and quality of a musical.

And it’s pretty cool to have Ian Gillian (from Deep Purple) performing Jesus part, even if only in the soundtrack album.
