This man's voice is magic. There is not much else I can say better than that. I put him up there with any of the classic tenors. Even songs I probably would not normally like, it is a pleasure to hear him sing them, as he puts so much feeling into his work. You can feel his passion in every song. This album is a mix of contemporary and traditional choices, with a bit of pop tossed in (signing with Sarah Brightman), so not every song may appeal to you, but somehow, when Bocelli sings them, you still stop and listen. This is an excellent album to just sit and listen, or as background for a dinner party (and I recommend Italian food!)
Down one star for the recording quality. You probably will not notice the issues on an iPod or phone playback, but played on a living room sound system, the weakness comes through. The recordings were done some time ago and this CD could have been better balanced in dynamic range of the recordings. I would love to see a remastered version of this album with better sound quality. Still, it is very enjoyable.
