Editorial Reviews

Product Description

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.

Amazon.com

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

3.0 out of 5 stars Short and sweet November 24, 2006
Format:Audio CD
I will keep this review short and sweet. I recently saw these talented guys open for Barbra Streisand in San Jose, CA. They have booming voices, great prescence, potential, etc....however, their producers need to pick new songs and not have them sing songs that have been done a million times over and done better. Also, they have now released 4 cd's since early 2005! Their management needs to take them into the studio, take their time and put out something stellar! They are MORE THAN CAPABLE OF IT! I don't fault the guys for this lackluster release, I fault their management team!

5.0 out of 5 stars Candy for the ears December 5, 2006
Format:Audio CD
I've read other reviews of people complaining about the length of the CD compared to other artists. IL DIVO are not other artists. The work that goes into their music and their vocalizations and languages and being able to convert certain songs I'm sure takes a lot of time. I'd rather have a top quality album of 40-some minutes rather than a longer album of less than quality music. IL DIVO is candy for the ears and if you have their DVD, they're candy for the eyes(for us ladies). It's all about beautiful music, REAL music. Romance is alive and well, Thank you Sebastien, Carlos, David, Urs, and also Simon for founding IL DIVO. I've not yet had the honor of seeing them in concert, hopefully day I will.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful!!!! March 23, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
What can I say? I love Il Divo!! Their music is soothing and romantic. This is my third one that I have bought and I will buy their others. It is not a disappointment to me that several of their songs are in other languages, it's just makes for a richer and more fulfilling Il Divo musical experience. The Amazing Grace song on their CD The Promise is the most beautiful rendition I have ever heard! Watch it on YouTube it brings tears to my eyes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Uplifting November 22, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Il Divo is playing it safe with this album, but since I love their last two CDs, I am thrilled with this one. Josh Groban is getting a lot of grief for trying something new, so you can't win. Since Il Divo sings mostly in languages other than English, you can have them playing when you are reading, or doing other things that require concentration. Their music also has a way of calming and uplifting your spirits. They have helped to keep me sane while my daughter has been dealing with a life-threatening illness. I play them loud, rotating between the 3 CDs, when things are difficult, and it really helps!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Very Formulaic December 3, 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Well, I really like Il Divo for their voices and style, but I have to say that the cookie cutter approach their producers are using is getting rather staid.

If you own any of the previous 3 releases Il Divo has churned out in less than 3 years of existence, then you have already heard this new album!

Same musical approach, same vocal arrangements, and yes...same languishing musical selections.

The only thing that is different of course are the actual songs....all of which are covers made famous by other major artists before them.

My biggest problem with this CD is not the fact that it is only 41 minutes / 10 songs long...though that does seem odd in an age were 12-16 tracks is the norm.

My real issue is in that they covered CARUSO, which is one of my favorite songs and totally butchered it...literally!

Most of the people listening to this CD will not know the lyrics to this song by heart as I do, but they have chopped up the lyrics in a way where the song makes no sense at all anymore. They've cut entire sections out of the song and transposed it down so low that it lost it's dramatic effect...much like Josh Groban did...but at least he sang the WHOLE song...as written.

Oddly there were also a number of linguistic errors with this song and other Italian songs on here. Seems their Italian pronunciation has fallen by the wayside since their initial release. Again, this will not keep the average Il Divo fan from loosing sleep, but it bothered me.

The major saving grace on this CD is of course their voices....Carlos' deep and powerful bari/tenor sound seems to dominate over the other guys and really adds to each song they sing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Il Divo, better than ever! If that's even possible. April 7, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I just received Siempre by IL DIVO to complete my collection. I can't believe it, but this one is beyond great! The four voices and personalities blend better than they did previouisly, David and Carlos have finally joined the band rather than being two soloists working to outdo each other. They now very naturally work to blend their voices with Urs and Sebastien. Urs' voice used to annoy me as it was presumably well trained but had an annoying white tone'd vibrato that made him seem insecure. In this CD, Urs truly has found his place and he has modulated the white tone and vibrato (yes, in the same voice) and now presents a beautiful, clear, tenor to add to the outstanding music. Most dramatically, Sebastien, the step-child from the Pop world, has found his voice. He is now singing in full voice, as well as gentle and quiet, has gained enormously in confidence and is a vital member of the band. Carlos and David are better than ever as leads. All the men have matured and Siempre is an outstanding work of art that meets Simon Cowell's criteria; the band was designed to 'cross-over' Pop and Opera.

The back-up orchestrations are still magnificent and provide the perfect back drop for IL DIVO.

This CD truly is incredible.

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
