There will always be a group of people who have a pop at Bocelli - the ones who fancy themselves as the music cognoscenti. They are obviously missing something that the rest of us can hear and appreciate. I think there is also a lot of envy and resentment because he is so popular; to quote Oscar Wilde: "people will forgive you anything except success". Bocelli would not be receiving countless music awards if he was not considered worthy of them by the true connoisseurs, nor would he be invited to sing at the most prestigious venues if he was not loved by such a vast and varied audience. Bocelli's voice and style are unique. He has brought a new sound and repertoire to the world of music, unlike the many 'crossover' singers who keep popping up like mushrooms everywhere. I have seen Bocelli many times in concert. As soon as you hear him sing it is obvious why he appeals to so many millions of people around the world, a truly magical artist. 'Vivere' is just one of his many excellent albums and he is the one singer I never tire of listening to .
