Biography

Russell Watson sits forward in his chair and smiles. “The thing that I most wanted to achieve has happened. The voice is back. And not only that, but the infrastructure that generates the noise I make, the strength and stamina I need to perform all that incredible material is back.” He relaxes, his message delivered. “It’s been a long road and it’s been hard work, ...

"Santa Lucia" was my first real memorable encounter with classical music as a child. It's on this album, beautiful and listenable for the way Watson makes the most of every word, and yet the phrase is always there. "Torna a Surriento", the opener, is enchanting and lovely. All of the Neopolitan songs on here are fabulous (Granada, etc). But also great renditions of "The Pearl Fishers' Duet", "Pourquoi me reveiller?", "Recondita armonia", La danza" and the always beautiful, "Core `ngrato".

Acquiring this CD and listening to The Voice upclose and personal finally awakened me to the genius that everybody has been applauding for the past few years. Watson possesses a rare combination of subtlety, control, spontaneity, and swagger that are evident on these classical and pop tunes. I can feel the lilt in his step on "That's Amore" and the fragility and heartbreak in "The Living Years".
Hearing him sing "the Best That Love Can Be" with Cleopatra makes it obvious to me why so many regard Watson as the quintessential English cross-over singer.

If you're new to Watson, you'll have no regrets buying this CD first.

This CD is rated as one of the best recordings for Russell Watson, and I couldn't agree more whole-heartedly. One of the best cross-over albums ever, this CD boasts an incredible list of classical and pop songs. Many of them are your Neopolitan classics which are sung beautifully by Watson.
You also have your standard pop surprises by Watson's talented and versatile pop voices - "Nothing Sacred", "That's Amore", "the Living Years", "The Best That Love Can Be" and "Bohemian Rhapsody", each sung with a different and wonderful pop voice - quite a talent! Even in the classical realm, Watson sings both the baritone and tenor parts in "The Pearl Fishers' Duet".
Is there anything Watson can't do? I love to put this CD on while I'm at home, and it always makes me perk up. It's the epitome of the how Watson spreads his enthusiasm and joy of singing to all of us. Watson is a complete delight.

Last year, you couldn't have convinced me I'd ever own a Russell Watson album, but a few weeks ago I found myself humming these songs that I'd heard my mother playing last year. The arrangements are wonderful and they leave Watson's voice far forward -- and some of his greatest performances are here, bookended by two masterpieces -- "Torna a Surriento" and "Vesti la giubba" The songs selected flawlessly support the album's concept of the singer introducing classical music to non-classical fans such as myself, and Watson doesn't hit a wrong note anywhere.
When you think of everything it meant to be Russell Watson - bringing heretofore intimidating music to the average music fan, what a life to be looking back on! -- the chance to listen in is irresistible.
"That's Amore"...his voice is perfection, as smooth as Scotch, and his tone one of reflection.. one of the best versions of this old favorite I've heard.

"The Living Years" -- Good lyrics and superb phrasing propel this thought-provoking song to a higher plane.

Other masterpieces include "Core `ngrato" with an arrangement as timeless as the vocalization, and "Va, pensiero" -- quintessential Watson -- quietly passionate and exciting.

"I don't know how I just got by" -- an evocative arrangement with Watson's smooth-as-silk delivery.

"The Pearl Fishers' Duet" is a terrific song, and can you hear it without believing Russell is singing both the baritone and tenor solos.... Magnificent.

Even if you're not a diehard fan, you can't help but enjoy hearing Watson at the top of his form on this breathtakingly beautiful album.

Reprise in my opinion is Russell Watson's best album thus far. Even in the opening few seconds of the first track, "Torna a Surriento", the strings and orchestration and his voice will send shivers down your spine! Watson's voice is smooth as velvet, as always, throughout each and every song.
He really delivers the emotion more than any other singer could ever be capable of doing. You feel that he's singing to you, and that he's been down that road before. All the songs on this album are exquisite and you'll be in utter amazement of Watson's beautiful voice and the lush orchestral arrangements.
Perfect for listening deep into midnight, when you want to relax, or when you just want to hear one of the the greatest vocalist of all time do his thing. My personal favorites on this album are "Santa Lucia", "That's Amore", "The Living Years", and "The Best That Love Can Be". "The Pearl Fishers' Duet" and "La Danza" show the amazing versatile side of Watson that will leave you in wonderment.

Russell Watson in his latest "gift" to us "Reprise" has proven once again what an extraordinary talent he is. He has such an incredible ability to sing both classical and pop with each style being equally as thrillling! In the beautiful "The Pearl Fishers' Duet" both of the voices you hear belong to Mr. Watson which leaves one to believe that there is no end to what this young man from Manchester can do. "Pourquoi me reveiller?" "Recondita armonia" and "Core'ngrato" are truly breathtaking, each exquisitely performed with such depth and feeling. "The Living Years" and "The Best That Love Can Be" will truly touch your heart and you will be using the replay button often. And you won't believe the voice in "That's Amore" while "La danza" will totally amaze you at Mr. Watson's strength of voice and versatility. And, of course, the wonderful "Nothing Sacred"....truly another convincing performance. As with his other CDs, "The Voice" and "Encore", I find myself listening straight through the entire album hoping there is one more song. The music on this CD is truly beautiful as well as captivating. It is a complete delight from beginning to end!
