Amore: Is a CD (album) I have been Highly Anticipating; and it was worth the wait. Andrea burst on the scene (in the USA) with his fantastic recording ROMANZA, and So far on a few listens I would say this album AMORE ranks right up there with ROMANZA. Although I also Love Sogno, Andrea, and Cicli De Toscana (Bocelli's other pop CDs') as well. Bocelli's singing hear is Romantic, Passionate, and filled with Emotion and his voice will go right into your soul and provide you with delight. Bocelli has a certain vulnerability (for lake of a better word) in his voice (when he sings pop) that can fill you with peace. He is just amazing.Read more ›
Italian, Spanish, French or English, these are songs you've heard before, just not quite like this. The world renowned tenor warms up with "Amapola", then launches into a stirring version of "Besame Mucho" a huge hit from way back in the 1940s. You'll find "Les Feuilles Mortes" very familiar, until you remember the song "Autumn Leaves", and then you'll be a little puzzled by the pronunciation of "Mi Manchi" which sounds like something else altogether.
An unlikely pairing with Christina Aguilera of "Dirrty" fame for "Somos Novios" make "It's Impossible" seem quite possible after all, and "Solamente Una Vez" is more familiar to Elvis fans as "You Belong To My Heart". Then comes "Jurame" (Think Of Me); "Pero Te Extraño" from the 1960s; Italian hit "Canzoni Stonate" this time with Stevie Wonder; "L'Appuntamento" a song with Brazilian roots; and the ever popular "Cuando Me Enamoro" a.k.a. "A Man Without Love".
You can't have a Valentine's album without "Can't Help Falling in Love", so here it is, in English, but a Live version. Two more beautiful tracks round out the album, versions of the song "Because We Believe" in English and Italian.
If you're in love, or hoping to be soon, you need to get this album before February 14.

Each of the fourteen tracks brings its own rewards but a few stand out for me. "Besame Mucho," the best version I ever heard of this romantic classic, is passionate and moody. "Mi Manchi (I Miss You)" pairs Bocelli with the incomparable Kenny G; the sentimental sound of the song matches the poignant lyrics so do check out a translation (unfortunately not included in the insert -- the only thing I'd change).
The fifth track is the unexpectedly lush "Somos Novios (It's Impossible)" in which former Mouseketeer Christina Aguilera joins Bocelli for a dreamy little duet. A couple of tracks further along Mario Reyes lends a sizzling flamenco guitar accompaniment to "Jurame (Promise Me)."
"Canzoni Stonate (Songs out of Tune)" is another duet, this time with Stevie Wonder. It's a good thing this one is in Italian, since the English translation tells a dodgy story -- but the sound is very appealing.
We have more great guitar accompaniment in "L'Appuntamento;" and the CD makes a strong finish with English and Italian versions of the inspirational "Because We Believe."
These and the other seven tracks on "Amore" add up to a romantic feast. I'm very impressed with Andrea Bocelli's versatility and with the production of this CD. "Amore" was released for Valentine's Day 2006, and it will stand the test of many Valentine's Days to come. If you are lucky in love, you'll want to cuddle up next to your special someone and enjoy this dreamy music.
