Ten little bullets in my hand

Dispelling Maguire vs. Warlow

All right.  So cloudytm has been doing this already for Javerts and Cosettes, but I thought I'd bring a bit of variety to us mad Enjolras fangirls.  The eternal Michael Maguire vs. Anthony Warlow flamewar has been going on since time immemorial, but surely I can't be the only one who's not overly fond of either performer?  MM rubs me the wrong way (and that TAC performance, yeesh!), and Warlow sounds really bored in the role and shouts random words for no reason whatsoever.  And... well, surely no one can say definitively that either of them is The Best Enjolras Ever when they've only heard three people in the role?!

So, I propose to remedy this. :)  I've raided my way-too-massive recording collection and taken advantage of my ridiculously fast connection to upload a few of my favorite Enjolrati.  (A few, you say?!  Well, okay, maybe I got a bit carried away.)  Consider this a sampler of sorts.

Michel Sardou - Do You Hear the People Sing? (from the French concept album)
Kenji Sakamoto - ABC Cafe/Red and Black (from the Japanese green recording)
Alexander Diepold - ABC Cafe/Red and Black (from the Vienna recording)
Robert Jicha - ABC Cafe/Red and Black (from the Czech complete recording - if nothing else, fast-forward to "they will come when we call")
Martin Berger & company - One Day More (from the Duisburg  recording)
Ruben Roberts - Red and Black (from the Buenos Aires production)
Matt Cammelle - ABC Cafe/Red and Black (from a Stockholm concert performance, in English)
