John Nineteen: While there is a clear intent that the music will ultimately form the soundtrack to a stage show, that does not compromise the rock foundations on which the album is built. Although for obvious reasons this is primarily a vocal piece, the album includes some fine, if often overlooked guitar work and other instrumental passages.
It may however just be the finest rock opera ever recorded. Even today, bands such as Ayreon are clearly influenced and inspired by the creativity and originality which was first seen with the release of this album. A landmark recording, and a highly enjoyable album too. It seems that Rice and Webber really spent a lot of money trying to give a lot of credibility to their Rock Opera in ! Well, I also have to say that I think that I only listened once to this release a very long time ago, so my commentaries are not exclusively in reference to this release, but mostly are in reference to the content of the music and lyrics.
I saw the Film too, once or twice. I really laughed sometimes seeing this kind of semi- Hippie Rock Opera. But something changed my mind in late June In those days, one of my brothers, who is a guitarist and who has a friend who plays the keyboards very well too , phoned me asking me to go for a a chat with them, so I went to see them. They told me that a theatrical company, which were using backing tapes then, asked them to learn some songs from "Jesus Christ Superstar" to gradually help the company to substitute the backing tapes and with the band later to learn to play the whole Rock Opera live!
I laughed a bit, and I said: How much they pay? They gave us some cassettes of the Spanish version of this theatrical work.
The keyboard player called one of his friends to play the bass. I listened to the tape several times. I even played the drums along the musical pieces, and The songs have several changes in time signatures, heavy orchestral arrangements, etc. We were only a quartet to play all these orchestral arrangements! So, I started to have doubts about learning the material in just one month, with that month including rehearsals with the whole theatrical company!
After this long paragraph, the conclusion is that this Rock Opera really has very interesing music, very well constructed, with very good orchestral arrangements, variable time signatures, etc. I could call some of these arrangements as "Progressive". Probably better conveyed in this medium too. A much praised and sadly sometimes overlooked classic from Excellent material and highly recommended. Instead the musical styles range from 70s sophisticated pop, Vegas style funky RnB and those type of dramatic melodies that are typical for musicals.
Even in what we wrongly call "Classical" music, I only like a few Operas. I can tolerate "Evita" though only to a certain degree , I can enjoy and at times, a lot his work in "The Phantom of the Opera", and I can usually listen to his music with less problems than I have with that of his peers.
