1 stars Ok. This one has been part of the life of "most of us". It has been a musical big success. But this in not prog. It's not even rock. Absolutely not a "rock opera", but a Broadway musical with lots of nice pop songs. Ok, you got guitars (and you got Ian Gillan!!!), but this is closer to "Hair" than "Tommy" and maybe you can find lots of Musicals with rock elements, but it donīt make them rock (and absolutely donīt make them prog). I listed to "Jesus Christ Superstar" and look for epics, time changes, complex musical arrangements, instrumental virtuosity and I donīt find nothing of it here. There are just a succession of songs (verse-chorus-bridge-) some good some not so and that's all. A good musical? Yeah. A Progressive jewel? Nope.
