Il Divo have sold over 12 million albums worldwide and hae earned over 80 Gold and Platinum awards in over 35 countries. Now Il Divo bring us their fourth studio release, Siempre. Presently on tour with Barbra Streisand, the classically trained operatic quartet are working their way through a 20 city tour to set up their album.
Siempre, Il Divo's third swipe at the snobs who aim to relegate classical crossover to retirement community socials and suburban dentist offices, is as apt to snare listeners as either of its first two multimillion-selling discs: the singing is as rich and romantic, and the material as warm and enveloping. If there's anything missing, it's an overdue sense of adventure--tracks like "Nights in White Satin" and "Somewhere," like "Unbreak My Heart" and "All by Myself" before them, provide enough adult-contemporary swagger to keep anyone who has owned a couple of Streisand CDs in his or her day happy, but they come at the expense of a full-on exploration of classical no man's land; which may be this prefab, Simon Cowell-helmed act's ticket to getting out from under critics' boot heels. "La Vida Sin Amor," "Un Regalo Que Te Dio La Vida," and "Una Noche"--Siempre's three boldest tracks--provide a taste, but for now Il Divo seems content to follow a safe-bet formula. Fans won't be disappointed--overall, this is a lush, wholly unblemished disc. But those who have been taken to task by high-minded music bullies before shouldn't be surprised if they feel the need to keep the mute button handy once again. --Tammy La Gorce

I liked this okay, but parts seemed a little boring. Beautiful voices though. Listening to it a few times was more than enough. It doesn't really grow on you.Published 4 months ago by JC

|Il Divo are four failed opera singers||
They have lovely voices and harmonize so well, I don't care if they are pop or opera singers.
Give credit where credit is due. I love them and their songs.

|The Aweful Truth about Il Divo!||
You know nothing about opera. All those people you listed are so talented that they are above you. That you actually took the time to bash Il Divo (and Josh Groban) is just amazing. If you really cared less, you should have just kept your mouth shut. The people you listed have real talent; the... Read More
