School of Rock: The Musical (Original Cast Recording)

This is the cast recording from the School of Rock musical that's currently enjoying its initial stage run on Broadway. Based on the School of Rock film that starred Jack Black, the cast recording includes songs from the film and 14 newly-penned tunes from master composer Andrew Lloyd Webber.

The material loses some of its excitement in the transfer from stage to recorded audio but still there are some very worthy moments here, notably opening cut "When I Climb to the Top of Mount Rock," the amusing "You're in the Band" and the strutting Meatloaf-goes-metal tone of "Stick it To the Man."
