5.0 out of 5 stars Il Volo just keeps getting better, new album is a knock out, November 20, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: We Are Love [Deluxe] (Audio CD)
Il Volos new CD is fablulous. There voices are better then they were, (how can that be possible?) Maturity, great management and their own sheer drive to pursue their passion for their music,is working for them and we their fans and those who will be their fans are the lucky recipients of all this talent.Although I loved Ignazio's romantic tenor tones from the very first, his voice has become fuller and richer, without losing those wonderfully romantic inflections in all the right places that make the listener feel like they are part of the scene the words are painting., Ignazio's ability to touch hearts with his voice is what I love most about his voice. Piero, that voice of pure energy and the electrical power that drives some of the best classical moments in Il Volos' songs of romance, is every bit as good as Placido Domingo, actually, in my humble opinion I prefer Piero's voice over Placido's, Piero's voice seems much more developed , and he gets it, he knows the perfect time to turn on that power and energy that sends some of Il Volo's songs light years ahead of anything else out there.Gianluca, his voice has been coated with even deeper silk like no other baritone singer I have heard in years. It flows over you with a smoothnes and richness so thick and unflawed like dark chocolate or fine wine.
The CD We Are Love contains 12 tracks, and if you get the bonus CD you will get 17 tracks, 5 of which are Christmas songs.

The song: I Bring You To My Senses----- (sung in English) is so romantic, the kind of romantic that is real. The kind of song you sing to your forever love, even when you are old and gray.

The song: Il Canto --- with Placido Domingo is not only beautiful but it shows just how talented these young men
are, unbelivable to be so gifted at their age,all to their fans benifit,to enjoy them for
years to come.
The song: Cosi --- I felt like this beautiful song was a strong showing of the Pop mixture Il Volo wants to add to
their dimension, fits right in with the youthfulness that they are and does it with flare!
The song: We are Love ----(Sung in English) Wow, I will be learning these words and singing them to my soul mate, he will love it.

The music set to the words of all the songs adds appropriately to the purpose of each song, whether it is ultimate romance and devotion , the Pop ,lets dance , celebrate our youth and energy, our love of life... the music emotion and choice of languages they sing each song in only adds to the whole amazing package. Il Volo is all three of these performers together, they would not be nearly as fabulous solo as they are together, each one has a dynamic that the other 2 do not have, when you put them all together you have pure perfection. The other tracs on the CD are also full of their shared and individual talents to make the songs magic. On the bonus tracs, especailly on the Christmas songs recorded severeal years ago, I could hear how far they have come, it's kind of like hearing them grow up vocally and as a group. Highly Recommended !!!!!

Since I already have the CD with their 5 Christmas songs I really don't need them as included on the "Deluxe" We Are Love CD. But I can't find the "Non-Deluxe" CD with their 12 new songs (without the Christmas songs) on Amazon. Have you by any chance run across it selling somewhere else?

OOPS...After I wrote this comment I Googled Il Volo We Are Love and found Amazon DOES carry the Non-Deluxe version with only the 12 new songs. They just don't show it when you search Il Volo on Amazon. We Are Love
