The Promise ()


On The Promise, Il Divo's formula shows signsof wear. The Promise isn't greatly different in feel or form from its predecessors -- it is still stately, dramatic Euro-pop covers balanced by a couple of made-to-order tunes -- and that's the problem. Without a change in sound or mood, the novelty of opera singers singing pop songs is beginning to wear off, particularly because the group's material here isn't strong. Previously, they sang songs that were hits the world over but here they rely on "The Power of Love," ABBA's "The Winner Takes All," and Charles Aznavour's "She," which skew this toward the group's Euro roots and give it a bit of a stuffy feel. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi Hide synopsis

Super album - Just great

by fireplug on Jan 8, 2009

I heard these guys sing Amazing Grace on a couple of tv shows. The bagpipe sold me on finding the album. Evidently a lot of others did also as none could be found in the local stores. I have used Alibris several times and did not hesitate to find and order the album as soon as I could. (I do have other Il Divo albums). This group and Russell Watson are currently my favorites.


Il Divo Keeps Its Promise

by TLEveret on Dec 4, 2008

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.
