Jesus Christ Superstar: A Striving Artists Cast Recording (2 CD)
Fresh and edgy without compromising the show's original intent...[the] arrangements, faithful and quite good, give the score a much-needed shot of testosterone. - Jesus Christ Superstar Zone
Astonishing, somber, emotional, brilliant, raw, rock-infused, full of wonder and might. Striving Artists is a collective of unbelievably talented musicians. - Music Emissions
As epic, theatrical, and jammin' as the original. - Middle Tennessee Music
Nothing short of outstanding. - The Ark of Music
Mesmerizing...You will not be disappointed. - Indie Band Guru
You may find yourself becoming a fan of Musicals, when you never were before. - Skope
I'd recommend this to anyone who has ever enjoyed the show. If you, like me, haven't heard it in a long time, you'll find this a refreshing way to revisit it. - Music Street Journal
The musical talent, impressive vocals, and overall output makes this a must-purchase if you are a fan of Jesus Christ Superstar or of musicals generally. - NeuFutur
Striving Artists' loving tribute to the classic rock opera by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice. Producer Greg Luzitano returns to the earthy early-70s style which originally put Jesus Christ Superstar on the map, combining the grit of the original "Brown" concept album with the epic scope (and the additional songs) of the film soundtrack.
