Overview

In case you were wondering, Romanza is a pop album. But Andrea Bocelli is much more than a pop singer. He has serious opera training under his belt -- including studies with the legendary tenor Franco Corelli -- and his exceptionally expressive voice was extolled by none other than Luciano Pavarotti. Like many younger artists, Bocelli is equally at home with popular and classical styles. The lush and lyrical songs on Romanza have operatic overtones, but they're designed for crooning, not for shouting high C's. While some critics have complained that Bocelli's voice is unsuited for opera (a debate that will continue, no doubt, as his fame spreads), there's no question that he is the master of the Italian love song. The husky catch in his throat is just plain sexy, and he exudes pure emotion -- ripping into these heart-aching songs like he really means it.

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Romanza is designed to break Andrea Bocelli into the American market, not only to the European audience (most of the album is in Italian), but also the English-speaking mainstream pop audience (through the Sarah Brightman duet "Time to Say Goodbye"). The result is an accessible, well-crafted, and melodic pop record from a terrific operatic vocalist -- it's an album that very well could broaden his audience.
