Our Review

Billy Elliot, a 2000 film adapted as a 2008 Tony award-winning Broadway musical with the help of writer Lee Hall, director Stephen Daldry and musical legend Elton John, features an original cast recording that’s a striking collection of musical theater. It pulls together the story of an 11-year old British boy from a working class family who discovers he prefers ballet over boxing and especially over a predestined future as a coalminer. The cast handles the shifting emotional tides, such as the swelling, epic opener, “The Stars Look Down,” the jazzy stage number (“Shine”), the confrontational, rock-based instrumental “Angry Dance,” and the mercurial mood piece “Grandma’s Song” with equal grace and ease. Dialogue knits its way through the melodies. (Elton John fans should be forewarned that this is John immersing himself in the conventions of musical theater — very successfully so — and not his usual singer-songwriter fare.)

Wonderfully Moving & Entertaining (5 stars)

A fan of the film, I haven't yet seen the musical version, but the cast album is a treasure -lively, emotional, and just plain fun.

A beautiful musical from a beautiful mind!! (5 stars)

Elton John has really found a new genre that he also excels in… Musical Theatre!! I loved this show and the soundtrack brings very excellent representation of what you see on stage. The true magic of John's talent is that he has captured the essence of the original movie that so many of us fell in love with. I don't think there is one song on this album that I don't like. Truly a touching musical and a must have for any Elton John fan or m

Excellent (5 stars)

This is a testament to how good this is album/show is: I bought the recording/saw the show when I was in London last year, and then when I came down to school this semester I forgot the CD at home…and it's so good I just bought it again on iTunes. My iPod isn't complete without it. SEE THIS SHOW. I thought I'd hate it before seeing it. By the end I was in tears (NEVER happened to me before at a show). If you can't make it to England, at le

In terms of sales and lasting popularity, Elton John was the biggest pop superstar of the early '70s. Initially marketed as a singer/songwriter, John soon revealed he could craft Beatlesque pop and pound out rockers with equal aplomb. He could dip into soul, disco, and country, as well as classic pop balladry and even progressive rock. His versatility, combined with his effortless melodic skills, dynamic charisma, and flamboyant stage shows, made him the most popular recording artist of the '70s….
