Romanza is the album that launched his career. The 12 selections include "Time to Say Goodbye," Bocelli's spine-tingling #1 single with Sarah Brightman. (66 minutes)
From his childhood on the family farm in rural Tuscany to the worldwide stage, Andrea Bocelli has achieved phenomenal success. His singing is only partially the point, and his fame owes much more to the aura of romance and the romantic archetype that's attached to him. Romanza is by far Bocelli's largest success, winning adoration thanks to the swooning vocals and the easy, sometimes lush, always pop-safe instrumental textures and melodies. As far as his opera chops go, Bocelli has won the approval of Pavarotti but likely will not wow enthusiasts. The upside is that Bocelli will likely grow the opera pie, convincing labels to take on more operatic projects. --Andrew Bartlett

Down one star for the recording quality. You probably will not notice the issues on an iPod or phone playback, but played on a living room sound system, the weakness comes through. The recordings were done some time ago and this CD could have been better balanced in dynamic range of the recordings. I would love to see a remastered version of this album with better sound quality. Still, it is very enjoyable.
Mr. Bocelli may not have perfect phrasing, but I am managing to enjoy the music all the same. I chose this CD as my first purchase for the title song, which I could listen to for hours on end. And the rest of the CD is really enjoyable, too.
If you're not an opera critic, I think you will get as much enjoyment from this music as I do. I guess there are times when lack of education can be valuable. I understand that people who know of what they speak can find flaws with Bocelli's work, but I marvel that music like this can come from any human, since I couldn't do it in a million years.
So I appreciate this CD, the talented musicians who contributed, and Bocelli's lovely singing. Chances are the causal reader of this review will too. I really believe you will love it as much as I.
