I’m not going to beat about the bush. I love this album. ALL of this album. Every single song on it. I received it at 1.30pm on Friday afternoon and I’ve listened to it four times since then. I might listen again later, after the kids have gone to bed and Hubby has gone for a bath.
My favourite track is.. whichever one I’m listening to at the time I’m asked. I have favourite bits of all the songs. I love the mixing, the production, the fact that it’s all in Spanish and I don’t understand a word, just makes it all the better to my ears. In fairness, I do know quite a few of the songs and they have been done in English, so I guess to say I don’t understand a word isn’t quite true although I realise the translations of the lyrics might not be word for word. I don’t mind that either.
I feel with this album they are finally doing what THEY want to do as opposed to some Music Industry Mogul with a penchant for botox telling them what to do. Some have said the Latin style is a change in direction for them, some say they’ve gone too far. I disagree. They’ve chosen some songs that some fans never thought they’d hear them sing, there is a change of pace yes, it’s more lively that previous albums granted, but to me it’s more like Siempre would have been had they gotten their way back then. In fact Siempre was my favourite till this one came out, the two have similar themes and I love all the songs on that album too. Amor & Pasion is like a sequel to it. In fact, if they hadn’t put Somewhere on as a bonus track, none of the songs on Siempre would have been in English either. It’s also worth noting that A Musical Affair was mostly English and people moaned like hell about that album too…some people it seems are never happy with what the guys do. Well, the guys are making music that makes them happy, and the more they do that, the longer Il Divo will be about.
