This review is from: Russell Watson - Reprise (Audio CD)
REPRISE, the third album from Russell"the voice"Watson is without any doubt in my mind the most incredible album to date
The most beautiuful classical arias ever composed blended with popular love songs and two incredible duets. Torna a Surriento is the first track and one hell of an introduction to this album, you are instantly transported to Italy and swept away in the emotion of Russell's outstanding voice. Granada,Recondita armonia and Questa o quella mix perfectly with Santa Lucia. then Russell changes tactic and the voice changes "Nothing sacred" the Jim Steinman classic and the tears flow, this song is being released as a charity single next month.Core 'ngrato is absolutely stunning, breathtaking, the beauty and power of Russell's voice, richer and deeper than ever, this has to be the highlight of this album. Bohemian Rhapsody is a fantastic cover of the Queen original, even Freddy Mercury would love this. Vesti la guibba is the finale, and you feel the raw emotion, the despair and pain. Russell Watson has produced a truly amazing album. The production, the orchestration and finish is perfection, the sound - very "HOLLYWOOD", stunning
polished, finished to perfection.
I did wonder how Russell would manage to follow ENCORE, well he has outdone himself here, REPRISE
words fail me
