My husband and I both love Paul's voice. This CD is one of our favorites to play. His wonderful voice and the songs that he selected for this CD provide such a soothing background for a relaxing evening at home.

Paul Potts is awesome - and not just his voice. His voice gives me the chills. He is such a humble guy with such a talent. He deserves all the happiness in the world. I hope he makes more CDs. He is wonderful. I never listened to Opera before. And the Christmas songs are a great addition.

You can't go wrong with the classics on this CD and Potts does them justice. But WHY did Simon C. choose to stick two Christmas songs on the CD as bonus tracks???? If you like to play your CD's on repeat at work or at home as I do, you will find the addition of Christmas music quite annoying.

When I saw and heard Paul Potts on Oprah, tears came to my eyes. I was tapeing the show. I had my husband listen, he felt the same as I. We bought the Album last night. The orcestra is great also. Worth every penny. The people that say it is not opera should take a minute and feel the music. Paul has a great voice.

I have the import CD and I love it. Paul Potts' voice has a beautiful emotional quality unmatched in any other tenor I have ever heard. If you like his voice, you will enjoy the CD. Judge for yourself.

Let's see - a real tenor? Does that mean, a so called "professionally trained" voice who sounds more like a machine than a human, whose talent was made, not born? And now your advice on pop music? How about a "real" band - not one like, say the Beatles, who never studied formally? I like Paul Pott's voice - I think he's the people's tenor or singer, or whatever you want to call him. I have read many reviews by British fans on their sites. Most love Paul. A few who think they are opera experts seem to find it great folly to call those who like Paul uninformed opera novices and always try to direct us to "real" opera. These stuffy opera experts can just return to their little opera house in the sky and leave us alone. I am happy with who I am. I don't have to put down others to find my own identity!

I am not an opera fan but Paul Potts' voice moves me to tears every time I hear it ... even if I don't understand the words! Beautiful doesn't begin to describe his music.

When Paul performed on Oprah on Nov. 6th, she said, "People in our audience are crying and [they] don't even understand Italian. That's when you know." And those of us who have listened to Paul know he has the ability to bring tears time after time. Fantastic... can't wait till his next album.

Andrew Sullivan's blog featured a YouTube entry about the U.K. version of American Idol. For some reason I decided to play it. Afterwards, I knew I would buy this guy's first CD. Paul Potts was his name. It was moving to hear him sing and to see how shocked he was to find out other people actually thought he was really good. He was an average guy like me and I wanted him to succeed. I was thinking his first CD would be a letdown but actually I liked his CD as much as my first introduction to his singing. My wife liked his CD, too. Paul, thanks for introducing me to Opera.

Paul Potts has an amazing quality in his voice. It has deep emotion, crisp sound, and a relaxing tone. You HAVE to try this one for yourself. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, and worth EVERY penny!

This young man has a wonderful voice. He still has room for growth but his CD is well worth the price if you enjoy listening to this type of music.

This guy's voice never fails to give me chills, and the first time I saw him on the TV show Britain's Got Talent (I currently live in the UK), his voice actually moved me (and many people in the audience) to tears.

Outstanding, awesome - these simple words do not do this man's voice justice.

It seems that all the forces of the universe came together in one moment for Paul Potts, and his destiny emerged. This first CD is worth every penny. It is a ray of hope for the talented unknown.

...but every time you come on I just want you to do well. And you just did again. And it was magic.” Those were the words of Simon Cowell (yep, you read that right) after Paul Potts’s semifinal performance of “Con te partiro.” It sums up what so many of us feel after listening to Paul sing. Are there technical flaws in his singing? Sure. One can say that of any other recording artist of any genre--but it doesn’t diminish their appeal. And Paul, after all, can be forgiven for any flaws we hear on this album: he was fresh off a four-year hiatus from his singing (for a number of reasons, which one can read about elsewhere) and thrust into a studio just one week from his stunning win on Britain’s Got Talent. What you’ll hear in Paul’s voice is far more than the sum of its parts, however they’re sliced. You’ll hear the ineffable, indescribable “something” that so many of us around the world have discovered. The flaws that do disturb me on this album—at least they did on the initial release—are production-related. The mixing was obviously hastily done to get this album to market quickly, and (unless those errors have since been fixed) it shows. Even so, this album is a treasure—and one that will be played over and over and over again. I promise.
