I don't know how to describe this great musician. I think that something important to say is that I'm able to speak Italian because of his music. I don't know what he does but his songs are not the classic "POP". He actually describes human feeling as no one else does. What I mean? Songs like "Sta Passando Novembre"(a song that talks about suicide). In this album all songs are great but there are some special songs, at least for me a person who suffers from depression, that I found truly special. "Il Cammino"/"El camino" "Ali e radici"/"Alas y raíces" These songs talk about someone who is trying to on in Life even if everything seems so hard, It can be about love or any other goal.
"Come Gioelli"/"Como un tesoro": It talks about the beauty of a children's smile or a mother's kiss, about the real treasures of Life.
"Parla con me"/"Dímelo a mí": I find this one truly special because of my condition (depression). It talks about someone who is having so many problems and needs someone to listen to him... It says "Parla con me, Io ti ascolterò e non ti giudicherò" ENGLISH: Talk to me , I will listen to you and I won't judge you.
There are other several beautiful songs. This CD is a piece of art. Eros è il migliore Eros es el mejor Eros is the best!
Well, I was prepared to love this CD, as I love ALL of Eros's music. But this was even better than I expected. How can this man put out such phenomenal music, year after year? I've been listening to this CD for a couple months now, and it has become one of my all-time favorites. I'm always trying to learn Italian but that's not necessary to enjoy Eros's music. There are so many beautiful words with internal rhymes and rhythms that go so beautifully with the extraordinary arrangements. Although Eros does collaborate with others on the music and lyrics, his unique singing is what makes it all work so well. Eros sings with such soul and he has truly mastered the art. I am just so grateful to have Eros's music with me in my life, esp. those long car trips. I feel so reassured when he sings, in "Appunti e noti", "Sono sempre qua con questo spiriti ho." May he ALWAYS continue to be there singing with the same spirit. I, for one, will ALWAYS be listening..... All the songs are great, but some other favories are: Il cammino Parlo con me Ali e radici Non possiamo If you buy this CD, you won't be disappointed!!!
Simply put, classic Eros: beautiful music, nice flow, great sound, on and on. I first started listening to him in 1998 while on a trip to Greece. From that point (thanks to my aunt), I have been hooked. I am the proud owner of every CD he has released (including imports) plus his Roma Live DVD! He just gets better and better with age--trust me, you will not be disappointed. NOTE: Be careful when you order the CD...there is an Italian (what I prefer and the best) and a Spanish version.
Eros is undoubtedlty Italy's finest artist. This album makes me proud to be Italian, , It brings me back to the Italian Renaissance, reminding me of the great artistic works of Davinci and Michaelangelo. I'm a composer, musician, producer for 25 years and i give this album straight 10's all across the board!. A true masterpiece just like a Ferrari! a must have for every music aficianado! Bravissimo!
I had never heard of Eros but I am hooked. I got the CD to help me in my quest to learn Italian. I listen to music on the way home from work, and language CDs earlier on the way to work. It was a pleasant surprise that I loved his music. It is full of passion and he has great diction. His Italian is relatively easy to understand.
