Very Romantic Music
I have very eclectic taste when it comes to music. I can listen to Clay Aiken one minute and Marilyn Manson the next. I love a wide variety of music. I have neve heard any songs from Il Divo until I got the CD. I have to say that to me, Il Divo sounds like a cross between Josh Grobin and the Three Tenors. That is certainly a compliment since they are all wonderful artists. I have heard of Il Divo but haven't heard any of their songs until "The Promise". Honestly, I think it's a very romantic CD. I can see myself playing this in the background over a nice dinner with my husband, or play it at a party. The music is very calming and relaxing for the most part. "Adagio" is a bit bold and powerful (not one of my personal favorites) but the other songs are nice and mellow. My favorite is "La Luna". I don't know why but it sort of reminds me of the theme song to "Ice Castles" in the begining and then towards the end it reminds me of "Words" by the Bee Gees. Other favorites are "I Knew I Loved You" and "Angelina". Their version of "Hallelujah" was very nice too. It doesn't bother me that they are doing their versions of other songs. Sadly MANY artists "sample" other songs these days. It's common practice. I would however lover to hear more from them, perhaps more original songs. Overall I think it's a very nice CD and I will certainly be listening to it while I'm working at my computer.
