5.0 out of 5 stars Album of the year! January 26, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I must admit, this is probably the first classical record I've bought in many a year- I usually listen to alternative rock. Like many others, I first heard Josh Groban sing on 'Ally McBeal', and was completely stunned by his voice. Once in a very great while a voice like his comes along... his range, his depth of emotion, and just the sheer beauty of his voice are far beyond his years. I agree with others who've reviewed this that 'The Prayer' would be much better if he'd done it without Charlotte Church- although it was probably a smart move by the record company and got him greater exposure. I could also live without The Corrs on 'Canto All Vita'- great song until they come in! Josh could sing 'Happy Birthday' and it would move me to tears. I literally cannot listen to this album all the way through without crying ('To Where You Are' gets me every time!).
I look forward to many more beautiful records- someone give this kid a Grammy!

4.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful New Young Talent January 25, 2002
Format:Audio CD
What a find. For someone so young, his voice has a wonderfull warmth and passion. The album is for the most part wonderful, with his English pieces being his showcase. The foreign language songs, which grow on you with each listening, tend to be a bit too modernized to match his voice and don't tend to reach the same level of passion as the English. As with any young singer you notice a few inperfections, but still a joy to listen to over and over. The biggest disappointment is the duet between Mr. Groban and Ms. Church. Her performance is horrible, lacking the ability to match the quality of his voice in color, expression, range or power. Age is not helping her young voice.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW!!!! January 25, 2002
Format:Audio CD
There was a question asked some time back and that was, "would America ever find another Bryn Terfel. Well, the answer is right her in this CD, and that answer is YES! His name is Josh Groban and he is destined to join the ranks of some of the great voices of our time. His versatility is also aptly demonstrated in this CD as he travels from classical to show to pop. The only correction I would have made in the selections herein would have been to delete the duet he does with Charlotte Church on "The Prayer". Miss Church's school-girl like voice has absolutely no congruency with Josh's, thus the number sounds like a father/daughter rendition with only the father's voice standing out. But if you can tune out Miss Church's singing, you are left with a great "solo" rendition by Josh.

5.0 out of 5 stars U S A's Own January 23, 2002
Format:Audio CD
I cannot tell you how refreshing it is to have an American voice like Josh Groban's enter upon the music scene. He is certainly destined to be one of the great singers in history and this CD should be the first of at least a couple dozen. Most impressive is his range and the various genre of music he can sing with equal brilliance. As some others have mentioned, I am also of the opinion he should not do duets with singers like Charlotte Church. The only thing memorable about "their" song, The Prayer, was Josh's voice. They do not harmonize and it sounds like a grown man singing with a little girl despite the fact they are only about 4 years apart in age. Josh has done some beautiful duets with Sarah Brightman and Lara Fabian and should stick with these legitimate divas. Josh's voice on the "Prayer" duet was the only good thing about Charlotte Church's album and her voice the only negative item on Josh's. Puting that aside, this will be one of the top albums of 2001-2002 - all genres.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exceptional January 21, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Is he singing about ravioli? I wouldn't know, I don't speak Italian. I wouldn't care if he was, his Italian songs are so beautiful and romantic as well as those in English and Spanish. This is an extremely talented young man with an exceptional gift. A voice beyond his years and beyond belief. I don't know if it's possible to wear out a CD, but if so, I'm well on my way.
I have played this CD over and over and I truly never tire of it.
Josh sings with such maturity and such feeling it filters thru your ears and into the soul. If you really love a beautiful voice, treat yourself to this CD. . The only track I can criticize is The Prayer with Charlotte Church, I feel her voice is too weak to blend with Josh's. It would have been better for him to go solo. I can't recommend this CD highly enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars We Want More!!! January 31, 2002
Format:Audio CD
This CD was a long time coming. It seems that Josh has been out there forever on Ally McBeal, Brian Boitano's Skate America, as well as PBS duets with Sarah Brightman and Lara Fabian. Finally however, we have a CD and what a magnificent work it is. I'm not sure, however, that I would characterize Josh's voice as pure Baritone. I think it is more in the area of Mezzo/Tenor. In any case we have a product of the good ol USA who is destined to be one of the great voices of the world, IN ANY GENRE. While I would have classified this album as classical crossover rather than pop, it will satisfy the appetite's of the most finicky of listeners. And to think that Josh is only 20. By listening to him you would think he is a veteran of the Metropolitan Opera Company.
The only shotcoming of this album is Josh's "duet" with Charlotte Church on the song Prayer. Charlotte sounds like a little girl here and her voice does not blend at all with Josh's. Besides after her horrible comments about the 9/11 tragedy, she has become bad news in the music industry and Josh is best served by avoiding her whenever possible. However not even CC can keep this CD from a 5-star rating. After weting my appetite, I'm ready for Josh's next album. BRING IT ON.
