A musical is really based on three things the look, the music and the singing. The stories are usually thin but this one really has a better story since it was already all written out for the writers. The look is good enough I do like all the Israel scenery. The signing is good especially from Carl Anderson and the music is great. Some might fine this offensive but I don't and I am a very faithful person. The cause of the controversy really is from a miss interpretation.

A rock opera based on the last six days in the life of Christ is pretty risky, but the music works, even if its anachronistic. It's has a hippie vibe going on that makes it both more authentic and yet spoils it at the same time.
