WELL WORTH THE $ !! My family had listened to the songs on YouTube about 50 times, and I decided that the artists & their endorcers, truly deserved the $ they would make from my purchase! Hamilton is an out-of-the-box, brilliantly written, Broadway game changing, inspirational piece of art!! The artists are all insanely talented & their performances of Lin-Manuel Miranda's ingeniously written rhymes and wonderfully scored music, are jaw dropping & mind opening. If you like any music or show tunes at all, you will laugh, cry, tap your toes, and want to blare your car radio & sing at the top of your lungs!! The x-lyrics thst acvompany each travk, are wonderful. After seeing specific references, you will find yourself Googling historical figures & battles, to get the 411 on a single line in a quick verse. And, time & again, you will find yourself impressed to find even deeper meaning, in the songs, through your learning of pivitol moments in Amercan history. There are: Ballads that will make you cry, Parody's that will have you laughing, Rap & Hip-hop dance #s that will have you stomping & head bobbing, inspirational songs with Historical quotes, that make you feel closer to George Washington, and emotional #s from each of the main characters, that make you feel more like you are seeing history unfold first hand. Yes, there's a little artistic license taken, but very little. My family and I would LOVE to see the play in person!!! Very impressed with this work!! Definately worth the $!
Basically the best Musical in history! Let's just say that it is really really good! I bought this for my 12 year old for Christmas and it was her ultimate favorite gift!! The quality of this CD is outstanding! Crisp. CLEAR. and the inner booklet is awesome!
My daughter listens to Hamilton nearly every day. She has really expanded on the civics and History lesson that is HAMILTON. She has recently convinced her skating coach to use this song in her routine.
