Soundtrack for the 2003 movie

The movie version of Kander and Ebb's Chicago was long in the making, but it's well worth the wait. Director Rob Marshall's main change was to turn the classic musical numbers into fantasy sequences, but of course this isn't … see full wiki

To be honest, I've never really like the show CHICAGO very much. I find the show too negative, pessimistic, and depressing.

If you like the movie, you will probably enjoy this soundtrack. …

CHICAGO, the movie, is one of the strongest stage-to-film transitions to come out in a long time. It captures all the joy and Esprit de Corps of the musical. Because the film is so successful on all levels visually, it runs the risk of closer inspection when the CD of the soundtrack is addressed. Were the musical numbers intrinsically excellent or were they just bouyed up by visual manipulations (superb as those manipulations were!)?Now that the CD is out the jury is in! Here is a disc of magic …
