Product Description

Amazon.ca

Josh Groban is making it hard for anybody who can't say "classical crossover" without smirking to maintain an acceptable level of snobbery. Awake, his third studio disc and arguably his most personal--he co-wrote four tracks and favors his native English over Italian--boasts as many bold names as any tricked-out hip-hop disc: Dave Matthews, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Imogen Heap, and Herbie Hancock contribute in various capacities, and a slew of behind-the-scenes collaborators best known for their work in mainstream pop circles deepen the dimensions of a style widely considered claustrophobic. For all the studio doors that got opened to create Awake, though, Groban's signature sound never once slipped out to take the air; "the voice"--that hypnotic, spun-silk wonder of an instrument--is as concentrated as ever, and Awake, in addition to showing off its many splendors, serves as a vehicle for parading its versatility around. While "Un Giorno Per Noi," the deeply romantic theme to the 1968 film Romeo E Giulietta, delivers the Groban that fueled the sale of 16 million previous discs to soft-hearted fans, "Machine," with Hancock, gives up a new form of funk: dignified, classy, and surprisingly unstiff. --Tammy La Gorce

5.0 out of 5 stars Wake Up and Listen Nov. 12 2006
Format:Audio CD
Put this beautiful album in your CD player, sit back, and revel in the beautiful songs and even more beautiful voice of Josh Groban. This CD is a bit of a departure for Josh....an exploration of his musical possibilities. While still singing in several languages and wrapping his velvet voice around some romantic ballads, he ventures further afield, collaborating with the likes of Imogen Heap, Herbie Hancock, and Ladysmith Black Mambazo to produce some very interesting work. The fabulous "Now or Never" and "February Song" will break your heart while "You Are Loved" will soothe and inspire and "Machine" will have you dancing in the aisles. The beautiful baritone is still there but with a greater range....right up there to falsetto! This album will be a joy to Josh's present fans and should also bring him many new ones!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Voice! Heart-breaking Songs! Nov. 14 2006
By J.T.
Format:Audio CD
The previous review says it all so I will just say that this is his best CD ever and since he started with perfection....His voice is heavenly and it is only improving with maturity. I am not sure I would "dance" to the song Machine but it is an interesting experiment. But the best songs are those in which his classical voice is employed to its fullest. Some of them moved me to tears. A must have for all Grobanites.

4.0 out of 5 stars Awake- yep, I am! April 14 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
His confidence as a person comes through in the song choices and style of singing... it is hard to ignore this big talent... it is different yet the same as his peers - somehow though he makes every note ad lyrical emphasis richer and better... a music powerhouse- he is undeniably great. Near perfect- he is as near as you can be, the Complete Vocal Technician.

This is my favorite album... but in reality it is all a matter of taste.

I am very happy with the CD. It lived up to my expectations.
It is easy to listen to. It smooths out a stressful day, and rounds out a relaxing evening.
