Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Julio Iglesias--he of the endearing Latin accent, endless-summer suntan, and stunning charisma--could make "Mary Had a Little Lamb" sound sexy, so it's no surprise that the 11 selections here smolder with the approximate heat of high noon in his native Madrid. What may be surprising to longtime listeners, though, is the range of songs he chose to cover. While "It's Impossible," the Perry Como hit with the famously pretty-sad melody, comes across an obvious choice and benefits from a swooning yet sure-footed performance, two Foreigner classics, "I Want to Know What Love Is" and "Waiting for a Girl Like You," seem somehow beneath our debonair ladykiller. Still, smothered by his signature passion, they play like entirely new songs--less earnest and searching, more insistent and sweet. Such is the case with Richard Marx's "Right Here Waiting" and, to some extent, the Cars' "Drive"; instead of sounding like lite-FM retreads, they become heated extensions of his Julio-ness. Older hits--"This Guy's in Love with You," "The Most Beautiful Girl"--benefit from a certain effortlessness; these are numbers pre-dipped in the knee-weakening romance Julio specializes in. Overall, it's a modern/classic commingling that proves what millions of women worldwide have suspected for decades: where practitioners of pulse-quickening, fantasy-fueling vocals are concerned, there is no equal. --Tammy La Gorce

Product Description

Julio's first English-language album in 12 years, the Master of Romance returns with an incredible collection of modern love songs, primarily from the 1970s and 1980s. Having performed with the likes of Frank Sinatra, Julio's sensual voice has impacted the souls of generations for over 30 years.

4.0 out of 5 stars Effortless Passion October 13, 2006
Format:Audio CD
There's something irresistible about Julio Iglesia's singing. He exudes an effortless passion of romance in nearly every song he touches. It's no surprise that finally he has released an album concentrating solely on romantic tunes. However, at first glance, some of his choices might seem out of character. With two Foreigner songs, "I Want To Know What Love Is" and "Waiting For A Girl Like You", Julio injects dreamy casualness that begs a listen from worldly lovers. Harry Nilsson's "Everybody's Talking" has a spirited freshness and the Bee Gees, "How Can You Mend A Broken Heart?" is a completely new interpretation. There might be a temptation to classify these songs as pure elevator backtracks, but Iglesia never falters in his quality. The only question here is why it took him so long to produce an album concentrating solely on romantic classics. There is no doubt there will be a follow up and his fans are already anxiously waiting.

1.0 out of 5 stars So sorry December 24, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The songs were great. Unfortunately whoever did the mixing on this was really heavy on the orchestra, thus drowning out the lyrics, which is why I purchased this selection. So Sorry I just couldn't hear Julio sufficiently to make this worth the price. Not a good value for price. Second rate electronics.

My wife is a big fan of Julio Inglesia. She did not like the renditions and was very disappointed. I listened to the songs and found them somewhat annoying.

1.0 out of 5 stars romantic classics
His selection was nice, but not all for his voice. He could have slected many ballads that would be more for his key and voice.
