AllMusic Review by

Ted Neeley came to the public's attention when he played and sang the title role in Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber's Jesus Christ Superstar, both on-stage and onscreen, and then followed it up with a role in the original theatrical production of the Who's Tommy, so it isn't a coincidence that this five-track EP is titled Rock Opera. Included are a version of the Who's "See Me, Feel Me," a duet with fellow Jesus Christ Superstar alum Yvonne Elliman on "Up Where We Belong," a take on the Bryan Adams hit "Do I Have to Say the Words?," a rendition of the Christmas classic "O Holy Night," and, thanks to some modern engineering tricks, a duet with the late Carl Anderson on "God's Gift to the World."
