Here's to a new style of music for The Ten Tenors,
This review is from: Here's to the Heroes (Audio CD)
I have everything the Ten Tenors have put out that in America we can buy. I listen to their CD's and DVD just about to the exclusion of everything else. Their earlier work is more vocals, rich harmony, and just about some of the best work I have heard by a group. They do a rendition of A Bridge Over Troubled Water on their Colours CD that is better than Simon and Garfunkel and I never thought anyone could sing it better-they absolutely do.
When I first bought this CD, didn't wait until it got here-I ordered it from Australia, I will admit I was somewhat disappointed and even wrote in the Forum at their website I thought the background music overwhelmed their voices. Their other albums have really featured mostly piano or they sang acappella, so I think I was just so used to that. But since I wrote about that disappointment, I have totally changed my mind. After listening to nothing else, I think this is probably their best work so far. The background music is sweeping and majestic and as you listen to it more and more, the instruments fade away except when they are forefront and the guys are NOT singing. The music adds so much to their sound and I think you will not be disappointed with a single cut on this CD. I say buy it and make sure you don't make a decision on whether you like it or not until you have listened to it more than once. It truly is a wonderful album, still with their marvelous harmony and more solo work by various members than in albums before.

Thanks for this review. You know your tenors! Yes, I also thought it was somewhat different then their previous cd's, however, I also think this is one of their best yet. Loved their choice of music. I, too, have purchased everything they have put out since attending one of their concerts several years ago. They're very entertaining and talented muscians and I thoroughly enjoy them.
