Il Volo's amazing vocal firepower comes through yet again!
on May 29, 2013
I'm going to start my review off by saying I didn't get my copy through Amazon. When I went to preorder, it wasn't available for preorder on Amazon at that time. As I have already reviewed We are Love on Amazon, I'm only going to review the five amazing new songs. Angel, that Sarah MacLaughlan had originally sung, was so beautiful and it brought tears to my eyes. Little Things, a One Direction song, was a pleasant surprise. I am not a fan of boy band music at all but the boys brought power and passion to the song and made me love it. Can You Feel the Love Tonight, the famous song from the movie The Lion King, lyrics by Tim Rice, music by Elton John, has always been one of my favorite movie songs. The boys brought their trademark passion and power to it and made it magical. Surrender (Torna a Surriento), a brilliant blend of Elvis' Surrender and the Italian Torna a Surriento, is my favorite song of the new songs. Right away, Gianluca, the baritone, blew me away with his impeccable vocal that gets better every time I hear him sing. You can just feel the emotion and passion emanating from him when he sings. Piero also blew me away with his classical/operatic voice that gets better and better every time he sings. Ignazio was incredible as well. Maria, from West Side Story, is usually sung as a solo. Gianluca had sung it during their last tour as a solo song. The boys each had a solo part in the song as well as singing together. It was an interesting arrangement that surprisingly worked and quite effectively. Il Volo, with these five new brilliant tracks, have proved to all of us that they can sing anything and sing it with the utmost passion, and, of course, with the utmost power. Congratulations, guys! Keep the great songs coming!
