"There are numerous joys to be found … One highlight is the soaring ballad "I’ve Seen His Face," and overall, this recording generates the same excitement that the original London cast recording of Les Misérables did when it was first released."

Broadway Direct

"the orchestrations are complex and packed full of detail … super talented Lee Ormsby … Wakefield’s vocals are beautiful and almost magical during 'When I See His Face' … Ricardo Alonso is a strong match as Satan"
