Overview

Following in the footsteps of Il Divo and the Three Tenors, Il Volo offers soaring opera pop on the group's self-titled debut. Unlike those acts, however, the three members of Il Volo were in their teens when they recorded these songs, which include bona fide opera selections like "'O Sole Mio" -- which the trio was discovered singing on the Italian talent show Ti Lascio Une Canzone -- as well as standards such as "Smile" and new pop material, including a pair of songs penned by Diane Warren, "Painfully Beautiful" and "La Luna Hizo Esto." It's no surprise Il Volo appeared on American Idol and worked with Josh Groban producer Humberto Gatica on this album; it's polished, romantic music from talented young vocalists and perfectly targeted to classical crossover fans.

I think I'll never go back to the type of music I listened to before Il Volo. They are REAL singers!

I saw these boys on Regis and Kelly ande I wondered what type of music these kids would be singing. When they started singing I was absolutely thrilled. The voice quality of these young men is fabulous. I was on the Barnes and Noble website while the audiance was still applauding. I hope they do more. They are as good as the Irish Tenors and they're better than the Three Tenors. You can hear each voice; one doesn't drown out the others.

I first heard and saw the DVD. After that I bought the cd. I am a total fan. Next week I am flying to Miami to see them in person. They have the most spectacular voices in a long time. They are funny, charming and of course ITALIAN. Love Ignazio the most.

I can't begin to describe how much I love these young men and their music. I tell everyone who will listen what a treasure I have found. I hope that they will continue to make more CD's and DVD's. I will buy them all. If they come to my area, I would love to see them in person. Bravo!

A link to these boys' performance on an American TV show was sent to me and at first I thought they were lip synching Il Divo as some sort of spoof. I couldn't believe that three teenaged boys could sound so mature. When it became clear they were the real deal, I had to run out and buy the CD and, of course, review all their performances online. I do think that some of the charm of the boys doesn't come across on the recordings. Seeing them perform live is so much more interesting becuase of their youthful charm, innocense, and obvious love for this type of music. While I enjoy the CD, some of the music selections are questionable. I don't understand why albums like this have to be ruined by the inclusion of some mediocre English-language songs like "Painfully Beautiful" and "This Time," both of which are instantly forgettable pieces. Since the boys' cover of "Smile" is very nice, why record some crappy written-just-for-them songs instead of including other covers of well-known English-language works? All in all, a nice album, but doesn't really stand out unless you're watching a video of their live performances.
