About me

Il Divo

I really expected to be able to say that this CD was one of the worst I’ve ever heard. I expected a G4 style massacre of classic songs, rearranged to be sung in a novelty style. But I was very surprised. This is actually an excellent album, with music of the highest quality and beauty. The second track makes even me want to cry, and that isn’t something that music normally does. It’s even as good as Damien Rice, but in a completely different way. You can play this over-and-over again without getting bored. An amazing album.

I’m beginning to think that, with all these good reviews, I’m going soft. But then I just think that all of these things have actually been really excellent. I’m sure something will come along soon that I won’t like, so that I can get back to my usual sarcastic self.

I start lectures again on Monday, so maybe I’ll be more tired and over-worked, and hence less likely to like stuff. We’ll see.

Hi again Clare, I’m not anything to do with Il Divo, but I’m happy to send you an email if you like. I just don’t really understand why…

Il Divo i LOVE your music and would really love to see you in concert. The only problem is that I’m only 16 and can’t really travel to see you. So as a big fan of yours, I was wondering if you could possibly come down to Corpus Christi, Texas. We have The American Bank Center where alot of big music stars perform. So if you could, please come down. 🙂
