Where can I buy the album?

I've never heard it, and I've never seen it online/in stores. :?

Okay, I have it.

I thought the music was great, some of the lyrics were dodgy, but they worked; the vocalists did a good job.

(not much of a review, but whatever :P)

3.5/5

I bought it almost 10 years ago, and I've only listened to it once... after I'd opened it.

It's covered in lots of dust (10 years worth). That can't be good for the CD.

the cd's worth it just for Mr. Andrews song at the end. Very haunting and powerfully sung by Mike Cerevis.

it truley is. it evokes the period perfectly..it has strong lyrics set in wonderul music, there are moving ballads like Barret's Song and In Every Age, stirring character driven moments like The Blame and Night was alive, one of the most touching blening of music and lyrics i ever heardi n the song "Autumn". and "Still" which is one of the finest love songs ive ever heard. the ensemble work is brilliant, the orchestrationbs, incorperating sounds like the telegraph and the ships engines is really fine indeed.

RAGTIME was much better. Score, cast, CD production. Superior to that of TITANIC.

The main reason I got TITANIC was because of Cerveris, who was Tommy in THE WHO'S TOMMY (another great cast recording, and I saw the Canadian cast... awesome...). So, I really got it for Cerveris.

I AM thankful that they didn't do a musical version of the 2,000 hour long epic that starred Leo and whoever-the-chick was. I forgot her name... anyway it's not that important.

The musical was out before the film.

I must say that I agree with Dawn that Titanic is one of the best musical theatre scores of the 1990s - but so is Ragtime. Off the top of my head, I'd find it difficult to compare the two right now, merely because I've been listening to Ragtime a great deal because of the current revival of the show and it's been a little while since I last listened to Titanic.

Both are brilliantly evocative of period music and Ragtime has just as many musical highlights as Titanic: moving ballads like "Your Daddy's Son" and "Back to Before"; stirring character driven moments like "Coalhouse's Soliloquy" and "The Night that Goldman Spoke in Union Square"; a touching marriage of music and lyrics in songs like "New Music"; and at least one fine love song in "Sarah Brown Eyes".

At a push, I'd say they're probably on par with one another, although their styles and intentions are so divergent that it does become complicated to look at the two side by side, despite some of the similarities between the two. Still such a comparison might make for interesting reading....
