With this being a concept album/rock opera, it is hard to get a true feel from the various bits and pieces. However, I offer up a taste of what you will experience from the record. I still suggest you sit and listen to it from beginning to end, though.

Album of the Week: Jesus Christ Superstar

Jesus Christ Superstar is one of my mom’s favorite albums, and I have been listening to it for literally my whole life. From start to finish, this is one of the most complete and well-done records out there. Told mostly from the point of view of Judas Iscariot, this rock opera recounts the last week of Jesus’s life.

If you have never heard it, I suggest you remedy that immediately.
