As I write, there is much talk about the Noah film. This musical, penned by Doug Horley and A1's Mark Read, targeted at a young audience covers the same subject matter and ironically does so with a much closer adherence to the Bible record. Appearing in the musical are characters Harry and Larry (introduced on track two "Come On Board") adding a little comedy, there is lots going for the collection. Singers include Mark Read, Ruthie Henshall (West End production of Les Miserables) and opera singer Jonathan Veira. There also appears to be a slight obsession with elephants with warnings not to be on the floor below the animals in "Build An Ark" and a general fear in "The Elephants Are Coming"! Overall the album is fun (especially "Waiting For Rain") and well executed, my only concern is as it is a musical soundtrack, it makes a lot more sense if you see the production before you hear the album.
