The Most Amazing Teenage Phenomenon - Ever!?!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Together (Audio CD)
Jonathan and Charlotte came in second place on the 2012 season of Britain's Got Talent. The audition video is amazing (available on YouTube). Simon initially panned them, until he heard those voices. He then told Jonathan he should drop Charlotte, Jonathan disagreed. After coming in second, Simon signed them for a million british pounds (about 1.6 million USD). I don't know which was more amazing Simon signing them or actually admitting he was wrong. Either way, while their story is amazing, the truly incredible thing about this album is their talent. Ave Maria is the best rendition I've ever heard. The entire album is an incredible mix of Jonathans powerful operatic tone and Charlotte's sweet pop vocals. It's a mix that's better than... well pretty much anything. Buy it, get a copy for your friends, get another copy for your family... Can you tell I'm a big fan?

I am excited to buy this albumn, but the review of the bad quality will have me now wanting to wait until it's out and I can hear the previews on Amazon before purchasing. Nothing peeves me more than horrible sound quality. Until then I will continue to listen to them on youtube.

It's a shame that one review out of 10 would deter you from purchasing the album. The sound is lush and strong and I have had the CD for several weeks. It is mesmerizing. Don't be afraid. It is a very strong debut album.

I have been following Jonathan and Charlotte from the US since their first BGT appearance in the UK. They are AMAZING!!! You will not be disappointed. I have their CD and listen to it every single day I cannot get enough of them. My 9 year old son loves their music and wants everyone to here it when were driving in the car! LOL Please don't let one review change your mind. THEY ARE FANTASTIC!!!! Go to You Tube and watch their video clips...you will fall in love with them. Luv Luv

I must say that I absolutely LOVE this album and listen to it over and over! Jonathan's voice is out of this world and Charlotte's angel voice blends beautifully. I am not much of an opera fan, but their voices are sooo wonderful. I will buy any album they put out! They are that good!!!
