Amore Musica [Import]

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Scott Paulin
As Russell Watson's fans surely know, this eagerly awaited album is the tenor's comeback after a risky operation on his vocal chords. Besides worrying whether "The Voice" -- as Watson's debut album was titled -- would pull through in top form, American listeners have faced a real frustration: Amore Musica has been available for almost a year overseas before finally arriving on these shores. Well, if absence truly makes the heart grow fonder, nobody is likely to hold the delay against Watson, for this album includes some of his most expressive and intimate singing to date. As the title foreshadows, love and music are the main subjects here, but faith is another; perhaps ...

Barnes & Noble - Scott Paulin
As Russell Watson's fans surely know, this eagerly awaited album is the tenor's comeback after a risky operation on his vocal chords. Besides worrying whether "The Voice" -- as Watson's debut album was titled -- would pull through in top form, American listeners have faced a real frustration: Amore Musica has been available for almost a year overseas before finally arriving on these shores. Well, if absence truly makes the heart grow fonder, nobody is likely to hold the delay against Watson, for this album includes some of his most expressive and intimate singing to date. As the title foreshadows, love and music are the main subjects here, but faith is another; perhaps his career-threatening surgery has prompted some spiritual contemplation, for Watson sounds more sincere than ever. And as for the voice, rest assured that the qualities that made it special in the first place -- the unaffected warmth and robustness -- are still there in abundance. The songs here tend to require less operatic power than on his previous albums, but those that do, such as "Il Gladiatore" and the Mario Lanza classic "I'll Walk With God," deliver the goods. Watson doesn't hesitate to put himself in direct competition with some of his "popera" rivals on this disc challenging Josh Groban's ownership of "You Raise Me Up" and Amici Forever's of "La Fiamma Sacra", and the romantic pop that dominates the rest of the album plays to all of his strengths. But best of all, he sings "We Will Stand Together" -- based on the gorgeous melody from Elgar's Enigma Variations -- with enough passion to wring tears from a stone, bringing Amore Musica to an irresistibly inspiring conclusion.
