_[title of show]_ is among the greatest - and most underrated - musicals out there. To a degree, _Now. Here. This._ copies the former show's approach of merely telling heightened versions of the performers' exploits, but where _[title of show]_ resembles the early seasons of _The Real World_, _Now. Here. This._ is closer to _Big Brother_, where thrown-together entertainment and manipulation outweighs actual sociology.

The first song, "What are the Odds?" seems to introduce a different show, one that actually tackles bigger questions of the human existence, but alas, it becomes a personal journey quickly. The performances and much of the writing are still quite strong, especially… Mehr dazu

3.0 von 5 Sternen the music is a winner, 22. November 2012
I was all set to rate this a two-star recording. My main qualm with the show is that after reading about the premise, I expected something like "Floyd Collins", while the show frequently rather borders on "13" territory with Kids having problems. So I doubt this would be a show that would win me over on stage. But some of the music is really infectious. There is no vocal-arrangement credit here, but whether it was composer Chris Miller or music coordinator John Miller who provided those glorious harmonies, he is definitely one to admire, easily elevating songs like "The Burnt Part". As should be expected in this kind of show, the lyrics do not strive for any intellectual grandeur but are… Mehr dazu
