Unmasked: The Platinum Collection

Andrew Lloyd Webber

Rating: 4 / 5
 

For anyone familiar with musicals the name Andrew Lloyd Webber is immediately recognisable. He is responsible for many great nights in the theatre, and is easily the most prolific and successful music theatre composer of our time. 


This double album collection reflects nearly 50 years; work from Lloyd Webber. It includes famous songs like ‘Memory’ from Cats, ‘I Don’t Know How to Love Him’ from Jesus Christ Superstar and the title track from The Phantom of the Opera.


There are some lesser known gems in this collection but there isn’t a dud song among them. The surprising aspect is that these songs are from recordings starting in 1970 up to 2018, demonstrating Webber’s longevity.


While you would expect to hear some big music theatre stars, other singers in this collection include opera singers José Carreras and Anna Netrebko, alongside the Everly Brothers, Barbra Streisand, Glenn Close, Madonna, Tom Jones and Elvis Presley.
