I disagree. I love this sound track and listen to it every day. What Gerard Butler doesn't have in formal musical training, he makes up for in sheer emotion.

Having listened to both Stage and Screen versions and having been fortunate enough to see the stage version in NYC and Chicago, I have to say I enjoy the film version better. The stage versions simply lack the sensuality, sexuality and emotion that the film is able that the stage versions are just missing. What Butler lacks in his voice (and it is rough, as the Phantoms characters should be) he more than makes up for with his grasp of the character, and the depth of pain and anger the Phnatom had. You simply don't get this on the stage version, any of them. This comes across on the album. This does not in anyway take away from the actors who performed on stage. To see Phantom on stage is a treat. But with the film, the sets, costuming is opulent, the score becomes richer and characters come to life. This does come off on the soundtrack.
