Il Divo – The Promise

While this CD is somewhat easy on the ear, you might still find yourself contemplating whether to become a fan or not.

Songs like "Adagio" and "L'Alba del mondo" should be well-received by lovers of the group and those who appreciate this genre of music. But even if you’re not a fan, it’s impossible not to be moved by their passion and the love story being conveyed. 

The group guarantees themselves a happy and willing segment of the pop market with great renditions of "She" and "The Power of love". And they even put an Il Divo stamp of ownership on Abba’s "The winner takes it all". But it is the gentleness with which they treat gospel songs such as "Hallelujah" and "Amazing grace" that actually makes you sit up and take notice.

If you’re not an Il Divo fan, don’t give it a complete miss, rather put it in the Christmas stocking of someone who loves this sort of thing, earning you your very own number one fan.

 


Okay, so you're thinking … Il Divo… do I need to bring out the tissues? Don’t worry. They’re back, refreshed and here to remind you why they took the world by storm in back in 2004.
