Opera-pop group Il Divo don't stray from their blueprint on their fourth proper album, The Promise, which isn't greatly different in feel or form from its predecessors -- it still consists of stately, dramatic Euro-pop covers of soft rock classics balanced by a couple of made-to-order tunes. Previously, they sang songs that were hits the world over -- "Nights in White Satin," "Have You Ever Really Loved a Woman," "All by Myself" -- and here they rely on "The Power of Love," ABBA's "The Winner Takes All," and Charles Aznavour's "She," which wind up skewing this toward the group's Euro roots. Ultimately, fans can choose to listen to this or to the other Il Divo albums, because The Promise offers more of the same. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, All Music Guide

I had never heard of the group, and when I looked them up, I was leary- they were described as singing "Pop Opera". I didn't know exactly what that would mean, and just wasn't sure if Il Divo would be my cup of cha, so to speak. While I did enjoy the CD, and it was a decent listen, I'm not sure this is the type of music I would normally listen to, or will listen to a whole lot in the future. I did enjoy it, and would enjoy it again in some settings, but it just really wasn't my kind of music. The songs were very operatic, and though there was a more upbeat sound to some of them, some were very depressing to listen to.The only song I enjoyed outright was Hallelujah- but it was a song I knew, which may have made a difference. There was a lot of hype surrounding the release of this CD, and I've heard from other fans of Il Divo that it does not live up to the expectations of past releases. I plan to listen to a few samples online of the older music, perhaps I'll find something I'll enjoy.

Wonderful rendition of Amazing Grace!

I listen to classical opera, but am in no way a connoisseur. I had heard of Il Divo, but had not purchased their music in the past. Il Divo has an amazing way of melding four voices together in an operatic quartet on this album. Hearing these romantic ballads in Spanish was beautiful, and allowed me to focus on the actual music and voice range of the four singers. This has to be one of the best renditions of Amazing Grace that I have ever heard, amplified by the beautiful background music and the crispness of the voices (Note that Amazing Grace is the only song in English on the album). I will likely purchase additional Il Divo albums in the future after listening to The Promise. Overall, I think Il Divo is many steps ahead of Josh Groban, but not quite at the original Three Tenors. This album is easy to listen to and would make great background music at a wine tasting or similar party, as well as, everyday listening for the classical opera lover.

Il Divo-The Promise The best way to describe this cd is: LOVED IT!!! This cd released 11-18, and I see great things for this self described “operatic boy band”. This cd is NOT your typical boring opera music! I prefer heavy metal, yet I thoroughly enjoyed this cd! Their music is slow, rich, & full. But don’t let the word operatic throw you! The music is NOT boring! All of the songs but one is not in English, but you do not need to understand the language to enjoy it. The music is GREAT mood music, and I envision enjoying this cd over a candlelight dinner, as well as while I’m surfing the internet! The band will be touring the states in 2009, and I expect to hear a lot more from them! They are a creation of Simon Cowell from American Idol, and have been together since 2004. They have sold over 22 million cds, have performed to over 1.5 million people in 30 countries! They have also had 2 sold out world wide tours!

I bought this CD for my Mom. There are two versions. One in English, one in French. The website was not specific, so I purchased the one in French. She loves the sound, but doesn't understand one word, except the last song of course, which is amazing grace. I'd like to make this right for my Mom, what do you suggest? Thanks so much

Il Divo Keeps Promise On New Release

Prior to receiving this CD, I was only minimally aware of Il Divo, the princes of popera. I had seen them on television several times, and knew that they had amazing voices and harmonies. When I first listened to this, I was blown away. These songs truly showcase Il Divo's incredible harmonies. The instrumentals are expertly arranged. The melodies are deceptively simple, yet compelling. Each song is full of pleasant surprises in harmonies, melodies and dynamics. If you listen, and emerge yourself in the music, you will not only be interested, you will also be lost in the music. With the exception of Amazing Grace, the songs are in Spanish. Regardless if you understand the words, the music emotes the sentiment of the song in a way that makes it easy to understand the message of the music. Songs such as "La Luna", Angelina and Amazing Grace really showcase the power, range and precision of Il Divo's voices.
