Product Description

Amazon.ca

Andrea Bocelli's Sogno ("Dream") is a pop album of entirely original compositions that evoke traditional and modern influences. Bocelli himself describes the CD as secular Italian traditional melodic music with a contemporary twist. The album's 14 tracks include "The Prayer," a Bocelli and Celine Dion duet produced by David Foster; "Come un Fiume Tu," an intriguing collaboration with soundtrack maestro Ennio Morricone; "O Mare e Tu," a duet with Dulce Pontes; and "Sogno" (the first single excerpted from the album), a light-as-a-feather, emotional composition sung by Bocelli with his typical vocal emphasis, which has made him famous around the world since the release of his self-titled debut. --Ernesto De Pascale

5.0 out of 5 stars Dreamy music....... May 13 2004
By Dusty
Format:Audio CD
I bought three Bocelli CDs.......the one that I love the most is 'Sogno' .........I cannot get enough of it....and late in the afternoon all I want to listen to is Bocelli.....the rest of the day I listen to a noncommercial classical station....
"Sogno" is simply the best...deserving of 10 stars.....

2.0 out of 5 stars Sounds too much like muzak April 26 2004
Format:Audio CD
My mom bought this cd a while back because it was on sale. Now don't get me wrong, Andrea has a beautiful voice. Personally , I'd much rather listen to him than Pavarotti or any other opera singer. I don't know about his technical abilities, but unlike other opera singers his voice is warm and soulful.
So what's the problem? This is the trouble with opera singers who try to sing pop songs. You see, the timing and phrasing used in pop music is just completely different. And often the composers who write these crossover songs for singers like Bocelli don't have the faintest clue what makes and emotional and touching pop song. To make a long story short, pop efforts by classical singers sound more like muzak than anything else. You know, the kind of music they play in expensive stores and restaurants. The orchestrations are overblown and the pop instruments used sound pretty cheesy and are actually nothing special.
Bottom line being, if you want a good blend between classical music and pop or rock, I suggest you look elsewhere. The truth is that most classcial musicians do not know how to write crossover music without sounding like background music. There are plenty of pop musicians who do a much better job of blending genres. I suggest that instead you get Muse's latest album Absolution. The lead singer Matthew Bellamy's voice is as supple and flexible as a coloratura soprano's and on top of that he is an excellent pianist. The band combines hard rock and metal with classical orchestrations and singing and still manage to sound incredibly infectious. Trust me, it's a better buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars If You've Ever Loved Italy April 9 2004
Format:Audio CD
If you've ever loved Italy as much as I do, and spent as much time there as I have, then you'll know just how perfectly Andrea Bocelli captures its essence on this CD. No, he doesn't have an operatic voice, but he does have a voice that's just perfect for these songs.
I have most of Bocelli's CDs and I listen to them daily. I feel transported back to sunny Amalfi and Capri, Pisa and Viareggio, the Tuscan hill towns of Montepulciano and Cortona, Bologna and mysterious Lucca. Just hearing songs sung in Italian is a joy for me.
Andrea Bocelli brings so much joy and life to his songs. The songs on this CD aren't meant to be "operatic" (and don't get me wrong, I love opera), they're meant to express the quintessence of the Italian soul...and they do. But it's Bocelli who fills them with life and gives them heart. The songs are truly "his;" no one could sing them like he does. His voice may be lacking in some classical respects, but it more than makes up for those lacks with genuine love and emotion for his material and the land of his birth.
I don't see how anyone who loves Italy could fail to love this CD. It captures the essence of Italy more than any other CD I've ever listened to, including ROMANZA. SOGNO is definitely one of my alltime favorites.

5.0 out of 5 stars His best CD ever Jan. 7 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I have listened to most of Bocelli's CDs and besides being a fan of his, i believe this to be his best production. Since i can remember i have been listening to Italian music and this guy is my favorite. Though he does not have Pavarotti's voice, his song selection is awesome and I'd much rather listening to him than Pavarotti. This CD has awesome music and lyrics; its a one of a kind.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good lead-in to classical music Nov. 11 2003
Format:Audio CD
Ok, so Andrea Bocelli is no Pavarotti. He simply doesn't have the technique a professional opera singer should have. His pitch and breath control (you can only tell the latter during live performances) are sub-par. But perhaps what makes him such a joy to listen to is that he sounds like he's trying hard. The extra effort he has to put in to hit notes (which seem to come without effort from Pavarotti) just adds to the passion in his voice. He somehow sounds more intense and <<real>> for his inadequacies. I think he's sort of the Mario Lanza of our generation.
But I am not a fan of the Italian pop that makes up most of this cd. It's not the melody or the lyrics (although how many songs can you have about love? It's sickening, really) but the fake 80s style drums. They are in nearly all the songs, and they really make the music sound cheap. Most of these songs, actually, are just Italian version of slow 80s pop.
With all this complaining, it may be hard to see why I gave this cd four stars. Well, as stated earlier, although his voice is not technically perfect, it is still quite enjoyable. And there are three songs on the cd that make it worth buying:
The Prayer - such a gorgeous song, beautiful duet with Celine Dion. This song has played on the radio.
O Mare E Tu - buy this cd for this song. Dulce Pontes is wonderful, and the song is so different and interesting!
Songo - no fake drums on this song. it's nice, but his pitch on the high parts is not that great. The melody reminds me of the theme from Twin Peaks. It's what you could call "singable."
It's for these three songs that I gave this cd four stars and it's also for these three songs that I recommend it.
