Spring Awakening

I just finished listening to the musical Spring Awakening today. For those of you who don't know, I'm a HUGE Broadway fanatic. I just love listening to the music. But, anyway, this is one I didn't think I would actually check out. I mean, it just never really appealed to me. A couple of people had been pushing for me to check it out, but I finally decided to when I happened to stumble upon it at the library. I wasn't looking for anything in particular, but I found several CDs, to try out, and of course, this is going to be the first of several Musical Reviews :P

First of all, the music is amazing! I mean, I can't believe how amazing the music sounds. Its wonderful! The storyline, however, is a bit tense and controversial. And the lyrics are very intense. If you're offended by a lot of swearing, I would advise you to pick up a different CD.

All in all, I think its a wonderful musical, and I would highly recommend it. :)


  1. I wouldn't be offended by swear words goddamn I do it all the fucking time. Shiit man. Actually I think it is a little overdone at times but it is a fact of life and that is how people talk even the prissy ones.

    I love musicals but that is a sure sign of being gay but I don't care about that either nor does my wife (SWMBO).

  2. @Oldfool...

    Sure sign of being gay? I'd have to disagree with you there; I've met tons of men who enjoy musicals, both gay and straight. ;)

    I'm glad you enjoy musicals, too! I'm going to have to post some more about the selections I picked up at the library. Do you have any to recommend?

  3. I really enjoy musicals, and pretty much any sort of stage performance. I haven't heard of this one though.

  4. Hang on! The music is by Duncan Sheik?! I love Duncan Sheik!
