For fans of Westend or Broadway type musicals, Here Lies Love is a very interesting and grand opus about the lives of former Philippines dictator Ferdinand Marcos and his wife Imelda. This project started as a concept album, a collaboration between David Byrne (formerly of the new wave band Talking Heads) and DJ Fatboy Slim. It was later made into a musical that made it's debut off Broadway. This album is different at many levels. First, it's a large work and needs two CDs. Second the co-op producers have a background very far away from stage and musical. For example, Fatboy Slim is into electronica, but the album rarely sounds like the usual electronica fare. Third, it has as many as 22 guest vocalists.

I started listening to this album without reading the sleeve notes and quickly realised that the tunes and chordal complexity reminded me of an Andrew Lloyd Webber musical.

Check out the title track by Florence Welch of Florence + The Machine Fame.

Started listening to "Live with Jagjit Singh" CD


It was sounding rather MP3ish. So I took out the original release on cassette called "Encore". That surely has a more emphatic and satisfying sound. The voice has bite that was missing on CD.
