2.0 out of 5 stars A Canadian sings American songs in Europe? July 5 2009
Format:Audio CD
It is OK...that is about it. Mediocre, middle of the road, nothing to write home about. A few good song choices, but I was hoping for some originality, some "je ne se qua"..ok, my French is weak! The man has talent; is it all going into writing French songs that aren't being translated into English. If you like to hear some old favourites, buy this; if you want to hear Roch Voisine, don't buy this...you will be disappointed.

1.0 out of 5 stars Traitor July 1 2009
Format:Audio CD
Well considering all the support the Canadian music industry has given Roch - in helping him build a solid base to expand into the rest of the world -- recording an album of Americana is a total cop-out!

Further, his sugar-coated voise cannot do justice to the classics on the CD. It ia about as credible as Celine Dion singing opera.

A Kid's Review
Format:Audio CD
I JUST BOUGHT AMERICANA 1 2&3. I LIKE THEM ALL BUT NO. 2 IS MY FAVOURITE. I ALSO BOUGHT KISSING RAIN. IT'S THE BEST. I HAVE PLAYED IT OVER AND OVER IN MY CAR. I LOVE LISTENING TO HIS ORIGINAL SONGS AND IT'S AN ENGISH VERSION WHICH ALOT OF HIS CD'S AREN'T. IF YOU ARE A REAL FAN BY THIS KISSING RAIN CD. YOU WILL LOVE IT.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a Voice! July 13 2009
By blueberryhill - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I really have just discovereed Roch Voisine. He has been making CD's since 1990 and I am now playing catch up collecting his music. What a voice and what a theme CD. The Canadian born singer salutes American music with this "Americana" CD and makes them his own! What a voice and what a great collection of songs. "You Never Can Tell", "City Of New Orleans" and "Ring Of Fire" are outstanding!
This is a must have CD for all!

4.0 out of 5 stars Smooth and singable Jan. 7 2009
By Ruth Bloomquist - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Roch Voisine was suggested to me while on a trip to France. I wanted to learn a pop/folk song in French. Only 3 songs on this contain any French which I find attractive to the novice French speaker.
The CD as a whole is nice to listen to. I think I'll see what some of his other CDs are like.

5.0 out of 5 stars "The Best Male Singer Of Our Time" Aug. 22 2009
By Terrance Richard - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I first discovered Roch Voisine back in the late 1980's and was blown away by his beautiful voice and impeccable coverboy looks. I have followed his carrer closely and although he is extremely popular in Europe, especially France where he rivals only Madonna in popularity, the American market has always eluded him. I believe that if Roch had the same kind of management that someone like Celine Dion has had Roch Voisine would be a superstar on this side of the Atlantic. I also live not very far from Roch's hometown in New Brunswick, Canada, so the fact that Roch is a Maritmer makes my love for him even stronger. We are very proud of our Canadian singing exports, but Roch is special. This album "Americana" is filled with classic American songs that Roch has loved for years and he makes these tracks his own. He covers songs like "Ring of Fire", "Suspicious Minds", "Crazy", "Ode to Billy Joe", and my personal favorite Dolly's "I Will Always Love You" that is the best male version of that song. 14 tracks are included. A wonderful CD by an underrated singer and performer.
