Andrea Bocelli, the blind and popular Italian tenor who, since making his stage debut in 1994, has sold millions of CDs worldwide, has released a collection of his greatest hits.
Never mind that he is "not very good" and his high notes can evoke "strangulation".
You might pity some music critics, who were faced with a nasty dilemma some months ago. Were they to fall in with the many fans of Mr Bocelli for whom he is evidently the next Pavarotti and echo their adulation? Or should they write what they believed - that his singing is flawed - and be accused of snobbery?
After a concert, the New York Time critic quoted "The tone is rasping, thin and, in general, poorly supported... "Even the most modest upward movement thins it even more, signalling what appears to be the onset of strangulation...
To his credit, Mr Bocelli sings mostly in tune. But his phrasing tends toward carelessness and rhythmic jumble, and the little barks and husky vocal expletives that are the mother's milk of Italian tenordom sound faded and unconvincing. The diction is not clear".
"Passion? Yes. Power. No," wrote a reviewer of the Associated Press.
"Bocelli's voice - though robust in spirit and precisely in tune, even in the upper register - had a thin quality that never opened up".
But he made sure simultaneously to acknowledge the unwavering loyalty of Mr Bocelli's fans. "Was the audience disappointed? Not in the least. They loved it".
A flawed voice, after all, can be corrected in the cocoon of a recording studio and hence perhaps the success of his CDs.
His first was released in 1995, one year after he appeared live for his debut in Verdi's Macbeth.
Yet, pulling Mr Bocelli from future live performances might not be recommended.

Format: Audio CD
Sugar Records presents "THE BEST OF ANDREA BOCELLI: VIVERE" --- On October 21, 2007, he sang "Con te partirò" with Katherine Jenkins on the popular UK television series 'Strictly Come Dancing' results show, and on October 30, 2007, he sang "The Prayer" with Celine Dion on the soon-to-be-aired ITV special "An Audience with Céline Dion." --- He sang alongside fellow Italian singer Laura Pausini "Vivire" ("Dare To Live", in English, which was also released in "The Best of: Andrea Bocelli as "Dare To Live (Vivere)") during the 2007 Latin Grammy.

Andrea Bocelli (born 22 September 1958) is an Italian singer --- He is both an operatic tenor and a classical crossover singer --- To date, he has recorded six complete operas -- La Bohème, Il Trovatore, Werther, Pagliacci, Cavalleria Rusticana and Tosca -- in addition to various classical and pop albums --- He has sold 55 million albums worldwide --- Bocelli has been blind since the age of 12 when a soccer accident accelerated an already slow loss of eyesight from congenital glaucoma

In 1992, the Italian rock star Zucchero first auditioned Bocelli while scouting for tenors to duet with him in the song "Miserere"; after hearing this recording, tenor Luciano Pavarotti urged Zucchero to use Bocelli instead of himself and said, "Let Andrea sing Miserere with you, for there is no one finer." --- The song was later recorded with Pavarotti, but Bocelli accompanied Zucchero on his European concert tour --- In 1994, Bocelli performed the winning entry "Il mare calmo della sera" at the Sanremo Festival, which led to his first gold record.

Andrea do not need a review for his best album
His name on a cd cover is more then enough
Becouse when he sings you don't need to open your eyes to see his magic in the air and even if you don't know Itallian
you can feel the power of singing
trust me you will not be dissapointed

well I am listening to Mr Andrea for 4 years and I just go crazy when I listen to him
I am in very shock to know that there are people OR Media say bad things about his singing
that's so bad media go back to school and learn how to listen music ......

This is a CD that I play over and over again. I recommend it to those who are a fan of Andrea Bocelli and those who are looking to experience Bocelli for the first time. I bought it primarily for "Time to Say Goodbye with Sarah Brightman"...WOW!! I also have "Under the Desert Sky" (from Lake Las Vegas) and I play this CD/DVD over and over again. Enjoy!!

I heard Mr Bocelli many years ago and I loved his voice then and have continued to follow him thru the years. He is without a doubt my favorite singer. I have many cds of his and plan on sending for more. I love his performances on our stations here in my area. Have not missed any of them..keep his cds on your site please !!

Andrea's pipes don't disappoint. However, if you are a true Andrea Boccelli fan and already have most of his music, you may find this disc as "predictable" and "nothing new". On a personal note, I prefer when Andrea sticks to singing in his native Italian not when he dabbles with other languages in his songs.
