For those who don’t know what the Book of Mormon is: it’s a religious satire musical with lyrics, book, and music, created by Robert Lopez, Trey Parker, and Matt Stone.
Basically, the Book of Mormon is a story about two young Mormon missionaries, naïve but optimistic, who are sent to a remote village in northern Uganda to take care of a brutal warlord who is threatening the local population.
The two missionaries try to share the scriptures from the book with the locals, but they have trouble explaining to people who are more worried about famine, war, AIDS, and poverty than about religion.
After nearly 7 years of development, the show opened on Broadway in March 2011.
The book received an overwhelmingly positive response from the critics as well as numerous theatre awards, including the Grammy Award for Best Musical Theater Album, 9 Tony Awards (one was for Best Musical).
Here are few responses from those who listened to the songs of Book of Mormon:
“You can enjoy the soundtrack even without watching the show, however, I would highly suggest that you watch the show because it’s simply great!”
“The music is great with clever and funny lyrics.”
“I usually keep the CDs in the car, listen to a handful of songs I love once in a while, and then, sing them all day.”
Now, here’s the best part!

i) Two By Two – The highest male vocals gives me an ear-gasm whenever I listen to it. The composition of the vocals is amazing. It’s probably one of the lesser obvious throwbacks to other Broadway shows.
