I first saw Russel on TV a few weeks ago about 1pm. He was singing ''It's Now Or Never'' and I cried my eyes out. Just sensational.

I hate Andrea Bocelli's voice so i wouldnt even make a comparison. Watson is a joy to listen to.

I first heard Russell on Good Morning America one morning as I was walking out the door. Chills went up my spine and needless to say I was late for an appointment. ''The Voice'' is one spine tingling chill after another. I love his voice and the images his songs bring to mind. I can't wait until he releases another album. I'll line up days ahead just to get a copy!

His remake of Simon and Garfunkel's "Bridge Over Troubled Water" (one of my all-time favorite songs) made me cry it was so beautiful. That song alone is worth five stars.

I see where the critics are trying to knock him down, why I don't know. But they do the same thing with Andrea Bocelli and I can't figure that out either. Frankly I enjoy his music tremendously and wish he would do a tour in the US.

I purchased "The Voice" CD after hearing just a few lines of "Nella fantasia" on TV. I had never listen to opera before, but there was something about this voice that captivated me. I have to admit the sound of opera was so foreign to me but listened through anyway. After listening to CD 3 times, I was in tears - this man's voice touched me so deeply. After getting totally hooked on Russell's voice I visiting his site and saw that there was a new CD called "Encore" soon to be released in the UK. This CD will be released here in the States on September 1, 2002. I very much enjoy every song on this new CD as well. His voice has become stronger, but delivers the same touching sound. I strongly recommend buying anything done by Russell Watson. Lisa

Just received ''The Voice'' and I am hooked! Looking forward to many more CDs from him. If you love Andrea Bocelli, you'll love Russell too.

How beautiful this young man's voice is! A pleasant surprise awaits everyone on this cd. You don't have to be a classical buff to appreciate the opera, but you will surely enjoy his rendition of Barcelona with Shaun Ryder and his duet with Cleopatra Higgins, whom I have never heard of before. I thoroughly enjoyed this cd and look forward to his next release.

It is rediculous and insulting to say this voice needs vocal training! Only one with no classical sense, an untrained ear or canal's filled with cotton would say such. I study voice and have a vocal coach now. The integrity of the Italian language in the arias, and classical songs Russell performs on this album are practicaly flawless recordings. They would probably be even better if you heard him live. He had a spellbound audience at the Taj Mahal. The little training Russell did have and all the karioki he sang at local pubs in England only enhanced and brought out ''The Voice'' that was already there. You have to no a good voice and be able to appreciate a great artist before you can be a critic.

I heard Mr. Russell, just by chance (?) soon after 9/11. I've listened over and over again to both his albums, and they have been a beautiful place for me in the midst of all the terror we've seen. I'm hoping so much that I will see him and hear him in person. I would like to tell him what a wonderful place in my life he has become. I can hardly wait for another album!

Very few artists have the ability to perform on both the opera and pop fronts as well as Watson. While Boccelli and others struggle on one or the other, Watson shows fine, albeit developing, ability on both sides. It would be unfair to compare him to ''the greats'' just yet as his voice is still developing. But perhaps this speaks to the wonders of his ability...at such a young age, we are already projecting him into the same realm as ''the greats''...and let's be serious...how many of ''the greats'' can sing a pop/rock song like this guy? ''Where My Heart Will Take Me'' sounds like something out of the early nineties (where's my lighter?). And how many can match his ability on Miserere? (Yes, both of those voices are his)... I just hope he finds and maintains a sense of humility...as I look forward to his development...

Russell Watson has a strong voice, it can get a bit nassal on "ah" vowels but he has a strong voice, and he can't really be compaired to Josh Groban, since Groban is a baritone, and Watson is a tenor. Get the CD, he has a beautiful voice

Nothing spectacular here. I DON'T like these song selections at all! However...Mr. Watson sang a nice ''God Bless America'' (on GMA)

This man has A voice. I do not deny it. But I don't think that it is THE voice, and I think it is rather presumptuous to say so. It seems to me that this Watson is trying to copy Andrea Bocelli, and if that is the case he may as well move on to different music because there is only one Andrea and HE has THE voice of tenors. Who is Russell Watson to step in and at least in appearance try to override Bocelli? If you've never listened to or enjoyed Andrea, buy this CD - you'll probably enjoy it. We who love Andrea would never settle for anything less than the best. Russell Watson has talent, but he needs to quit copying Bocelli and make his own style and repertoire, and leave Bocelli to his.

I have never been a big fan of operatic music, at least not until I heard ''The Voice''. Russell Watson definitely belongs up there. His mix of opera, classical and modern music brings a whole new era in the music world. Can't wait for his next project.

I have never been so taken with a musical gift such as Russell Watson's. There is something about his voice that that reaches into your soul. You can not and will not be able to forget the incredible talent he has of opening your heart to the world of Classical Music. What a gift he has! It will haunt you forever. I can't wait for Russell's next release.

Russel Watson's mechanical and disjointed singing falls way short of the standard expected for an amateur chorus let alone operatic star status. Try listening to Roberto ALagna for techincal ability. Although he also has not the warmth of Lanza or Domingo. Unfortunatley the sound engineer is king- not the singer.

I love Russell Watsons' voice. He is truely amazing with such a range in singing styles. If you like Andrea Bocelli style get this CD, he is great!

The perfect voice of Russell Watson backed by the incredibly beautiful orchestration of the Royal Philharmonic is the most uplifting, satisfying, and enjoyable music you will never tire of!!!! It just doesn't get any better than this!!

''The Voice'' was an enchanting collection of songs. I have heard a number of talented vocalists, and I have to say that Russell Watson is amoung one of the greatest.

... and the charms to go with it!! Am loving all his 3 albums right now. Though from the reviews he is appreciated more for the ubiquitous arias that he sings, I'd say he takes Bridge Over Troubled Water, Vienna, You Are So Beautiful, Somewhere and The Living Years to new hights! Hey, he ressurected that "cheesy" song Volare (killed to death by wedding signers!) by making it sound good!! Him doing Bohemian Rhapsody encapsulates the cross-over wonder that he is, in a nut-shell. But overall, these are wonderful albums to kick-off your shoes and chill to after a hard day at the office.

The power of his voice! The quality!He is the brightest new rising star.

The voice is a perfect name for this gifted singer. I love the song Barcelona, Vienna , La Donna E Mobile, these I play real loud, just love them. I listen to him at work everyday and never tire of his beautiful voice. I wish him the best in his future career and hopefully he will have a concert in the U.S.A so I can go and listen to him in person. I am very moved by all of his songs, and I do not believe he is trying to copy anyone else, he is just a gifted and wonderful talent.I also listen to Bocelli but ''the voice'' is my favorite. gb.
