I was in an HMV store in the UK last November when I heard this beautiful music playing. I asked who it was and was told it was the new Il Divo CD which had just come out that day, so I got it.

Much like their debut, `Ancora' is filled with lush, romantic love songs, performed in English, Spanish and Italian. If there is any change from their debut, it is that this features (just a bit) more guitars, and more subdued percussion. If you're looking for something edgy and groundbreaking, this isn't the CD for you. However, if you like beautiful, touching music performed by four excellent vocalists, you just might like this.

`Ancora' features covers of Mariah Carey's `Hero', The Righteous Brother's `Unchained melody', Eric Carmen's `All by myself', and Celine Dion's `Pour que tu m'aimes encore'. Celine Dion duets on `I believe in you'. I'm not really a fan of Ms Dion but this works much better than I expected.

`Isabel' is simply stunning. Lush strings, delicate percussion, and the four tenors rising to a crescendo towards the end in an achingly touching vocal performance. Definitely my favourite!

Other standouts include the tender, yet dramatic `Si tu me amas', `Hasta mi final', the largely acoustic/string filled dramatic `En aranjuez con tu amor' (superb vocal performance and the most operatic sounding song), and `Esisti dentro me'.

The UK version contains `Ave Maria' and a lush, sweeping rendition of `O holy night'.

I am deeply offended by a review about this CD. I feel Amazon should have some guidelines about what people can say in their reviews. The reviewer who stated people who bought this CD should die should not be allowed to have his review published. I checked his other reviews and one said if you didn't agree with his opinion you should commit suicide. This drivel should not be seen by the public. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but most people are smart enough to give their opinions without offending too many people. Oh, wait--that was his intention. He wanted to offend people and get our attention. Well, he got mine. But his opinion just shows his lack of education and intelligence.

Enough about him (or her, or whatever). This is a good CD. It is so refreshing to listen to men sing. And that is what Il Divo does--they sing. They don't sound like they are having surgery without anesthesia as so many "artists" of today do. On this CD, the singers actually carry a tune. And, they have beautiful voices as well.

I am just sorry I had to read the hate-filled review. It pains me to be reminded of the terribly misguided people in our world today.

Il Divo's self-named first cd was a much needed breath of fresh air in an era crowded with hip-hop and pop singers who prefer to sing about how many "hos" they have or about the ridiculous amount of bling-bling they sport. Thank God, we have a second round from the quartet with the smooth, rich voices! Although I would have preferred a disc with 13 or 14 songs, this cd is still full of great songs sung by men who can ACTUALLY sing! From the first song, "Solo Otra Vez" to the beautiful (and my personal favorite) duet with Celine Dion called "I Believe in You (Je Crois en Toi)" this selection of romantic songs makes the listener realize how music is meant to sound. "Isabel" is also incredibly beautiful and the group's cover of Mariah Carey's "Hero", is another gem in this well crafted cd. Another cover in Spanish of Josh Groban's "You Raise Me Up", entitled "Por ti sere" is a triumph as well as the closing song, "Pour Que tu M'aimes encore". I love the fact that these guys mix up Italian, Spanish, French and English songs in their selections proving that good music is good music, even if it is not sung in your mother tongue! Whether you love or hate Simon Cowell, you have to give him credit for finding a talented group of men who know what sounds good and have voices full of range and that blend so well with each other. A great cd for the special person in your life on Valentine's Day---or any day for that matter! Highly recommended!!

I'm not going to analyze this album track by track. I'm just going to say that every product they have put out is an improvement on the one before it. The voices seem richer, the harmonies blend better, the musical interpretation is outstanding.

This is not opera folks. This is a pop album. Sung by trained singers who know how to carry a tune and infuse their singing with emotion. They don't need to sing in English to get the meaning across.

If you want beautiful, romantic music, then buy this album. It only gets better the more you listen to it. They are absolutely amazing.

IL DIVO have 4 of the best vocals I have ever heard. Ancora is a truly amazing and fantastic album. They blend their harmonies so well and when they do their solos, each of them just shine. You don't need to know what they are singing about, you can just feel the emotion when they sing. Makes you want to hear more and more. Cannot wait to see them live at their concert.

Their formula works well overall. Pop ballads in orchestral settings, for the four men to take turns doing solo duties within the verses, & then sing together in the chorus & bridge. There were two outstanding songs here. Their Italian version of Mariah Carey's "Hero," & the closing song "Pour Que Tu M'aimes Encore. They sing these two with far more brio than the others. Make no mistake, this group has a very long & bright future in front of them. As with their debut, Carlos' powerful baritone carries most of the weight of the four. I could see him eventually being a solo star. This was better than the Christmas release, but not as good as their debut. Lastly, it was fourteen minutes shorter.
