    First Bocelli, now Josh?

    This is a very disappointing, especially compared to his debut album. He has an absolutely amazing voice and psudo-operatic pop is not the way to showcase it. His first album was great in showcasing his different styles but this takes it too far! I'll start buying his albums again if/when he begins to do real opera. Please, Josh, don't sell yourself short.

    The singer is good, but...

    Look, I'm a big fan of Josh Groban. I absolutely love his voice, and I personally like the fact that there is at least one twenty-something artist out there who can actually sing (Unlike a certain Britney Spears) The problem is, the boy needs better material. What is with all the cheese whiz on this album? I find myself only being able to listen to the songs in different languages; the ones in English drive me up the wall with their awful lyrics. Ugh. Only "Per Te", "Mi Manchari", and "Oceano" made it on to my iPod, out of thirteen songs or so. Groban's got more than enough talent; he just needs to take it to another level than this psuedo pop-opera stuff. Get himself in a Broadway musical or maybe even a real opera. See if they're remaking Moulin Rogue any time soon (though I rather doubt they are). Anything that keeps him from singing "You Raise Me Up" ever again.
