I’ve been listening to the Rent Broadway cast recording on Launchcast for awhile, and I just don’t get why it’s so popular. Granted, I haven’t seen it, but the music really sucks. It’s sort of operatic in that the characters are singing normal dialogue, but there is no leitmotif, or even any recognizable melody, holding it together. What am I missing?

And I’m incredibly impressed with how much Livejournal has improved in my absence. Much better than the crappy Expression Engine we use at Transbuddha.
