Barnes & Noble - EJ Johnson
Building on the success of such popular acts as Amici Forever and the Three Tenors, the all-male quartet Il Divo join forces for this stirring self-titled debut. The result of a talent search launched by American Idol judge Simon Cowell, the photogenic foursome -- Spaniard Carlos Marin, American David Miller, Frenchman Sebastian Izambard, and Swiss Urs Buhler -- put forth their collective vocal talents in a program of operatically flavored pop, including such favorites as "Nella Fantasia" a Sarah Brightman signature and an Italian version of "My Way," as well as songs in Spanish the opening "Regresa a mi" -- based on Toni Braxton's "Unbreak My Heart" and English "Every ...

Barnes & Noble - EJ Johnson
Building on the success of such popular acts as Amici Forever and the Three Tenors, the all-male quartet Il Divo join forces for this stirring self-titled debut. The result of a talent search launched by American Idol judge Simon Cowell, the photogenic foursome -- Spaniard Carlos Marin, American David Miller, Frenchman Sebastian Izambard, and Swiss Urs Buhler -- put forth their collective vocal talents in a program of operatically flavored pop, including such favorites as "Nella Fantasia" a Sarah Brightman signature and an Italian version of "My Way," as well as songs in Spanish the opening "Regresa a mi" -- based on Toni Braxton's "Unbreak My Heart" and English "Every Time I Look at You". Save for Izambard, who is branded "vox populi," each boasts classical training, and when singing together, their rich, primed-for-Verdi voices form a potent blend that many will find exhilarating. It's as if Russell Watson, Mario Frangoulis, Josh Groban, and Andrea Bocelli united to form a classical-crossover dream team. Of course, one listener's delight is another's schmaltz, and the largely sentimental, Vegas-ready numbers here will change no one's point of view on the joys or otherwise of "popera." But those whose CD collections have grown apace with the rapid rise of crossover in recent years will deem the gifted hunks of Il Divo wholly irresistible.
All Music Guide - James Christopher Monger
International classical crossover quartet Il Divo didn't start out in the garage practicing their exceptionally fluid tenors among the din of outraged neighbors and summer construction crews; rather, they were hunted by producers for two years like wild game in their native lands and herded into the studio, where they were sculpted into a machine of such smoldering European romanticism that the world would have no choice but to rip their very hearts out upon first listen. Sound overly dramatic? You bet, which is why Il Divo's self-titled debut depends entirely on one's opinion of Celine Dion's "My Heart Will Go On." Extremely wealthy producers Per Magnusson and David Krueger Backstreet Boys, along with Steve Mac Charlotte Church have created the Three Tenors -- in this case four -- for the next generation, and if the first single, a cover of Toni Braxton's "Unbreak My Heart," is any indication, all involved should see their stock rise. American tenor David Miller, French heartthrob Sébastien Izambard, Swiss tenor Urs Buhler, and Spanish baritone Carlos Marin tackle standards like "My Way" and "Unchained Melody" with an expert precision and pomp -- the latter is sung in Italian -- that aptly conveys their obvious talents. An achingly beautiful arrangement of "Gabriel's Oboe" -- known here as "Nella Fantasia" -- from Ennio Morricone's score for The Mission is sweeping and grand, but there is no denying the sheer Monkees/Menudo/American Idol consumerism of the whole venture -- this is Idol "Grinch" Simon Cowell's baby. Il Divo may only last long enough to rid the world of a few billion dollars -- probably on one tour alone -- but there's no doubt that the hands that hold the strings above them are already in the war room planning their next kill. [Il Divo is also available in DualDisc form with a bonus DVD.]

    Music to make your heart and soul soar

    I bought my first Il Divo dual disc so that I could watch these very talented singers perform in both the concert at Gotham Hall and the Regresa A Mi video. The dual disc has the 13 songs from the CD on the CD side and they are also on the DVD side, but in PCM stero which is outstanding. I first bought their self-titled CD, Il Divo and was afraid I had it almost worn out as I played it all the time. David, Carlos, Urs and Sebastien have a very evident passion for their music and they bring it to their audiences. They each can sing on their own, but as they blend their voices together it takes you to a whole different level. Each time I listen to them my heart and soul soar high above the ground leaving all else behind as I join their musical world. They love to sing for others, you see it in their eyes and body movement as well as hearing it in their voices, the way they interact with each other and the way they sing directly to you....never at you. It doesn't matter if you speak the language they are singing in (they sing in English, Spanish, and Italian), because your heart always understands. I buy both the CD's and the dual disc's to give as very welcome gifts.

    A BREATH OF FRESH AIR FOR MUSIC LOVERS WHO KNOW WHAT QUALITY MUSIC IS.

    I first saw and heard them perform on Oprah and the group totally blew me away. I thought no other artist can be at par with Josh Groban (I'm a big Groban fan), but I've proven myself wrong. Il Divo depicts what quality music really is, unlike the honky-tonk noise you hear on the radio these days. I'm looking forward to more albums. Good Job Il Divo!!!

    Interestinly New

    With all the new remakes of old songs these guys top everything! They really know how to make it sound new and put their own style into it. I love these guys and I recommend buying this CD to all my friends! They sure aren't bad to look at either.

    Bella

    What can I say about this extrodianry quartet. Beautiful arrange voices that can sing me to sleep any night(especially Carlos). Simmon Cowell may be a pain but he knows talent when he hears it. There rich voices and spectacular talent makes this cd an istant classic. I do hope they plan on staying around. They are also easy on the eyes and made themselves a favorite on my list.
