Product Overview

There's an understandably cynical atmosphere to this updated musical version of the German playwright Franz Wedekind's controversial late-19th-century play about adolescent sexuality and its repression by a strict society. But songs like "Totally F#$#" and "Bitch of Living" energize their pessimism with hormone-fueled abandon, and an intriguingly sophisticated presentation courtesy of a score by the musician Duncan Sheik and the lyricist Steven Sater.

ReviewSource Rolling Stone
Review Songwriter Duncan Sheik rediscovers mojo in . . . musical theater! In at least one way, Broadway is less parochial than the record business. The Playbill guide for songwriter Duncan Sheik and lyricist Steven Sater's controversial modern-rock musical, Spring Awakening, prints the full titles of classroom-mutiny showstoppers "The Bitch of Living" and "Totally F***ed." On the back of this album, it's "B****" and "F*****." But it's not hard to read between the asterisks. Onstage and especially in song, Spring Awakening -- based on an 1891 play about sex and suicide in a German boarding school -- is the anti-High School Musical, frank in its teenage curiosity and despair and scored like Lou Reed's Berlin with Green Day as the pit band. In "The Dark I Know Well" (sung by a victim of incest) and the show's autumnal finale, "The Song of Purple Summer," Sheik recasts the shades of Reed, Nick Drake and Talk Talk from his own solo albums into beguiling chamber pop that heightens Sater's interior monologues. And "Totally F***ed" is a punk-band-cover-in-waiting. Speed it up, pile on the fuzz, and it's Warped Tour time.
