I apologize to all those Les Miserables elitists out there (which there are a lot of, as evidence from from customer reviews at amazon.com), but Colm Wilkinson is the worst Valjean I've ever heard.

He has a fucking Scottish accent, dude. English is okay, French would be good...but Scottish? Like...DEEP Sean Connery Scottish. Which is not Valjean.

And I know because I've heard several. I've seen the show twice, I have one version of the CD and have another version downloaded.


On a related note, Philip Quast is the best Javert EVER. He's amazing.


Note the irony of me complaining about Les Mis elitists and then essentially doing the same. ;-)
