Post Which CD should I pick?
I have to choose between the Concept Album or the Original Cast Recording, which one do you prefer, and why?

The concept album has a lot of music that has been cut or re-worked. If you want to have a recording that goes along with the show that you can get the rights to or see a production of today then go with the OBC, it won't be exact, but it will be closer than the concept album.

You can go to Amazon.com and listen to snippets from both recordings. I suggest doing that to make your decision.

Are we talking about the Warlow concept or the Wilkinson concept?

If it's the former, go for the concept. If it's the latter, take the OBC...but I'm biased, because I don't like Colm Wilkinson. XD

I forgot there were two. I was referring to the 1994 concept cast with Warlow, you can listen to the other one too.

If it's the Warlow you're checking out, again, I say take that. Warlow = orgasmic, and a lot of really good songs are on it that aren't on the OBC ("Bring On The Men" and "The World Has Gone Insane," for example).
