3.0 out of 5 stars Italian opera babe!, 30 May 2002
This review is from: Il Rosso Amore (Audio CD)
Here she is, the wonderful Italian soprano Filippa Giordano with her latest offering. Aimed at the mainstream market, it has the makings of a very good crossover pop/ classical release as in Sarah Brightman, Boccelli and Russell Thompson. The album uncludes a couple of classic arias such as 'One Fine Day' from Madame Butterfly with the rest of the album being made up of pop based melodies. Giordano's operatic voice is not fully convincing but with her beauty and style she pulls it off to make the end result satisfying and relaxing. The Italian language songs melt from your speakers with love! Songs such as Il Rosse Amore (the title track) and Che Luce Sei are strongly written tracks and work well to blend with the classical content included.
This is an excellent album to discover her talent with and a worthwhile purchase if you want to be culturally entertained!

5.0 out of 5 stars Master Songwriter Displays His Wares, 26 May 2002
This review is from: Ultimate Manilow [U.S.] (Audio CD)
Covering the period up until 1981, this collection is really the nadir of songwriting and pop perfection. Often scorned for his romantic ballads, Manilow has many closet fans who will probably buy this for their partner as an excuse!
Starting with Mandy, the ultimate love song, although it would have been nice for the long version to appear on the album, the album carries on with hit after hit of smulchy all american goodness. Sweet enough to eat !
This album really shows off Manilow's talent for pandering to human emotions and as such should be in the collection of every wholesome family!
As it says "The Ultiomate Manilow"....the collection is complete.
