Level of familiarity before listening
I have heard of Godspell before, and I guess I would have assumed it was a musical, but I do not like musicals and have never seen it. My mother laughed when she heard that I would be listening to this record, which describes itself as “a sweet rock musical based upon the Gospel according to St.Matthew (sic),” though she professed to have no idea why she would have owned it. Also, I swear that it is a complete coincidence that I’m listening to this on Friday 7 April 2023 (טּּ׳ז ניסן), the second day of Pesach.
What I expected
An XX century musical drama about the Christian bible.
What it was actually like
Every minute of this was terrible.
I recognized Day By Day, though I have no idea from where.
1/5: horrible enough that I couldn’t make it through
