Beyond what I've learned as my children watch Dora the Explorer, I don't speak a word of any languages except English. Though I don't understand the exact Il Divo is singing for many of their songs, but they sing so beautifully and with such emotion that I can understand the meanings of the songs, and that's what is really important. These men have beautiful voices! My favourite song is track 4, Halleluja (Aleluya). It's gorgeous! This is a great cd to listen to when I'm stressed or just want to relax. It's soothing and makes me feel happy. I'd definitely recommend it.

I am a platinum member of their website. I have all their albums, dvds and have seen them live 5 times. I WAS almost obsessed - Siempre toned it down a bit but The Promise has all but killed it.
Whoever did the mixing likes the sound of a loud, no - very loud baritone. Carlos all but drowns out the other 3 on nearly every track at the crescendos. David, Seb & Urs all have wonderful voices but you can't hear them!! I am seeing them in February, but I have to say I'm not looking forward to it as much as I was. A very formatted album - sorry guys, but not my cup of tea.

This is the first time I have bought an Il Divo CD and I was a little disappointed, the tracks were a bit samey. Maybe it will grow on me though.
However, I do love their versions of Hellelujah, Amazing Grace and Adagio.

Il Divo - An Evening With Il Divo - Live In Barcelona [Blu-ray] [2008]In love with all four but why oh why does the gorgeous Carlos have to drown his mates . This is the same problem on all their cd s and at their concerts . A baritone voice is more powerful than a tenor and should be a background voice .Just watched Adagio on DVD. O dear it was as if Carlos treated this number as his solo never the less sent tingles up my spine.

Sorry guys but I think some people are looking or at least listening to this CD with rose tinted glasses as they say - it really is a disappointment and certainly not a CD which is going to do anything for you, its neither enjoyable or even needs listening to more than once.

I have been to 4 IL Divo concerts which were great and bought all their previous DVDs and CD's but if this an example of what is to come in the future I shall not waste my money on any more - tickets either. Saying this it also influenced my decision whether to buy tickets again to next years concerts which I now decided not to do............I'll save my money incase they make a decent album in perhaps another 2 years time....come on guys have a read of what the buying public are writing not just those 'so in love with you' that they will buy anything.

It does not matter if all the lyrics, apart from Amazing Grace, are in Italian. It allows the listener to concentrate instead on the beauty of the voices and the musical arrangements. There is plenty here for all tastes in music, from Albinoni's 'Adagio', which is sung with great sensitivity to the original composition, to Charles Aznavour's 'She'; from full blown orchestral backing to the simplicity of a single guitar. The highlight of the album for me was the tender, lyrical and restrained treatment of Leonard Cohen's beautiful 'Alleluja'. I have only one very small criticism: each track begins with the voice of one and ends with the full force of all four. It becomes a little predictable by the end but does not detract from the over all enjoyment. Highly recommended.

Have just listened to Promise and have played it again but sorry it leaves me disappointed - I am a fan and purchase most things Il Divo related - been to see them live three times - but this for me lacks " the certian something factor" of the previous C D's
