Listing Detail Tabs

With a whooping 120 minutes of music to get through on this large album (once again the album being on two CD's), it looks like Jeff Wayne is making the most of the space on CD, compared to the limited space he would've had on vinyl back in the '70's. The story itself is a joy to listen to, especially with Anthony Hopkins (playing the villain Marcus Crassus) narrating most of the story, with surprisingly a second narrator for album in the form of none other than a then young Catherine Zeta Jones playing the part of Palene, the love of Spartacus. With her name attached it, you would've thought that the album would get noticed, well this was before she became the star we know her today and then, she was making her attempt to became a music star.
If you let it stand on it's own and think nothing of WotW, it is a underrated piece of work for Jeff Wayne and should at least get some more notice. Another factor which in an interview that Jeff Wayne did not so long ago was that when WotW was released back in 1978, that time was a bit of a Sci-fi boom which did it's part in helping the album gain fame, when Spartacus came out however in 1992, there were no historical epics at that time like 'Gladiator' and the album didn't gain much traction. It is hard to find and comes with a 48 page illustrated booklet with lyrics.
