    Wherever you look, there’s a fierce artistic sensibility at work.

    The Hamilton Mixtape is an enthralling musical journey through American history that manages to stay relevant to our country’s turbulent political landscape.

    The more faithful covers might feel redundant if you still have the original cast recording on repeat, while those drawn to the pop covers can probably skip past Miranda’s original demos. Still, by providing another eye-opening entry point to his groundbreaking work, the mixtape might be what takes you from being a casual fan to a hardcore Hamophile.

    It's no big shock that the long-awaited Hamilton Mixtape is so well done.

    As a companion to the musical, it’s indispensable. As a standalone piece of art, it’s as flawed, complex, and sometimes dazzling as the historical figure on which Hamilton centers, to say nothing of the country he helped to create.

    The Hamilton Mixtape has managed to drain away the edge and danger from a Broadway show, a curious inversion and just more proof that you can’t Xerox Miranda’s inimitable work.

The new "Hamilton Mixtape" is the perfect revisit to the Broadway classic. With amazing vocals from sensational artists (Sia, Kelly Clarkson, Usher, Alicia Keys and more) and splendid covers the mix tape is the sort of soundtrack you'd listen to on repeat. Expand

It's been played to death by my entire family. So I had high hopes of hearing remakes of my favourite songs. Instead the vast majority of tracks on this mixtape mess is just awful, full of all the trappings of modern hip-hop/R&B/pop, with terrible, tuned singers, dense distorted arrangements, and rappers who seem to think that rapping is about no more than just offloading their testosterone. It's not all bad, but I've deducted two stars for the insult to the original. Expand
