I think your comments are the soundtrack recording are way off base. I think the soundtrack recording is magnificent. Gerard Butler is no great singer, but than again the Phantom is not supposed to be all that talented to begin with (remember how horrible his opera is?).
As for his age? The Phantom should not be 60, 70, or 80 or however old Crawford is. He is waaaay too old, get over it. Gerard Butler was the correct age. He is NOT Christine's father, but his age is close enough. Christine is 16 or 17 or 18 at the most. Gerard is probably in his late 30s which means he can be her father. So, you are are wrong there. Webber always wanted a rock voice for the Phantom and that is what he got. So you are wrong again.
