Good Friday, that means It's Jesus Time! Jesus Christ Superstar is a well-known adaptation of the story of Jesus the Nazarene's last few days on earth, from his entry into Jerusalem to his crucifixion, as a rock opera. As a mortal, human man the J-dawg is quite a hero of mine and this film has been one of my staple favourites since early childhood. The soundtrack as well consists of some songs I've known for a very long time. Of course the rowdiest, most anthemic songs are the best, such as
Heaven on Their Minds and Damned for All Time as sung by Judas (Carl Andersson) with his beautiful black voice. You also gotta love the jubilant and somewhat homoerotic Simon Zealotes and those evil but so understandable farizees Annas and Caiaphas' evil schemes in Then We Are Decided and This Jesus Must Die. If you're a fan of the musical you'll want this, if you're not (yet), then give it a chance; some solid rock music here.
