The Contenders: Page 2
Great album, great story, great lyrics. Very elaborate melodies, and, once more, a brilliant use of counterpoint in the vocals. It's very ambitious, because there are a few different stories, but, somehow, in the end, they seem to complete each other, and you get the sensation they really should be told together. - amandamop
Some of the best ever Queen songs, with an insane plot-line thrown in! It couldn't get any better! - ObsessedwFreddie
The double album that set a new standard in rock operas, with amazing songs that tell a state-of-the-art story. - diegokatabian
I love this rock opera because it really rocks and tells a great story at the same time. Plenty of guitar work and synths drive the songs with a lot of power.V 2 Comments
This will move up the list fast as Neil Patrick Harris is about the take the lead role in 2014 on Broadway. Go check out the original starring writer/director John Cameron Mitchell. He is amazing. This rock opera is amazing!
A beautiful story about struggle, self realization and the love of rock and roll. Best film of 2003.
This. This rock opera was absolutely fabulous. I adored Sarah Brightman's performance, as I always do, and believe that the story and music is quite original. This should've been in at least the top 20.
Normally, I can't stand Sarah Brightman, but here, good god
I CAN UNDERSTAND HER!
"Prepare ye the way of the Loord. " Stephen Schwartz really knew what he was doing!
The definitive storytelling of what it was like in 1964 when they became the biggest thing in the world. Funny, smart, and irreverent.V 1 Comment
