I thought it was Michael Maguire that was sick. Was Colm sick as well? And totally agree is Judy Kuhn, she is the only casting in the concert I didn't like. Much too old.

Auf die Barrikaden wrote:Well none of them has a feeling of all around perfect (as in every voice and role perfect) cast for me. TAC and OLC are close yet suffer other faults. I agree that Colm struggled a bit in the beginning, it's more obvious in the video. The CSR suffers from bad conducting, sound effects and questionable mixing-plus Tracy Shayne. However it sports some of my all time favourite actors and...it's complete and really lush at many points in the score. OBC and 25AT have serious casting issues and mediocre performances. The soundtrack is an own beast of its kind for me. My ranking therefore would be:
Out of league: Movie

Because, personally, I think that, as much a minority as this is, the 2010 cast album is my favorite. I didn't think so at first, but then I just kinda kept on going back and back to it...Though, the cuts were very saddening, and much of them unneeded. I'm rather indifferent about the concert, though, but that may be because I haven't seen it all the way through.
The CSR is probably my second favorite, due to completeness, yes, but I agree, Gervais; I was not a fan of Tracy Shayne. Nor Michael Ball, but he does have a fantastic voice, I give him that ungrudgingly. I really liked Katie Hall's Cosette, though, and while I actually preferred Kaho Shimadra more than Rosalind James, I still liked the overall feel of the 25 anniversary cd more than some of the others. There was a bit more...urgency to it, than some, I think, and I really loved how it was live, and so all the gunshots from the barricade, etc, were included. But it's such a matter of personal preference.
