Overview

Following in the wake of the spectacular success of artists like Andrea Bocelli and Russell Watson, the ever-expanding genre of classical crossover music is set to embrace another rising star, Josh Groban. The 20-year-old baritone's debut CD, Josh Groban, artistically exceeds the industry's high expectations for this very young, remarkably self-possessed performer. Discovered by producer-songwriter David Foster, the handsome L.A. native has selected an eclectic mélange of classical and contemporary tunes that present his warm and robust voice in a variety of complimentary settings. Whether singing in Italian (the gorgeous "Alla luce dal sole" and "Un amore per sempre") or English (Don McLean's moving "Vincent (Starry, Starry Night)" and Richard Marx's dramatic "To Where You Are,") Groban imbues every note with a shimmering romantic glow. Eschewing the obvious, the versatile vocalist features top-drawer material by Linda Thompson ("You're Still You,") Albert Hammond ("Alejate,") and Ennio Morricone ("Cinema Paradiso") as well as J. S. Bach's lovely "Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring." But the highlight is Carol Bayer Sager's "The Prayer," a made-in-heaven duet with fellow wunderkind Charlotte Church, a partnership with a combined age that barely totals 35. Already touted by such celebrities as Sarah Brightman and Rosie O'Donnell, Josh Groban is a precocious and rare talent ready to explode.

I can't express how much a joy it is to here such a wonderful voice. I was introduced to Josh Groban's music more than a year ago when he was featured on a Celine Deion televised concert(PBS if memory serves). Took me awhile to buy his CD's but now have several and want to finish making my collection current.

Everything about Josh Groban's CD is beautiful; both the songs and his gorgeous voice. You will be completely mesmerized. The minute I heard his CD playing in the store, I had to have it. His singing will definitely stir your emotions....simply beautiful....

I AM ABSOLUTLY IN LOVE WITH THIS GUY'S VOICE. HIS VOICE CONSUMES ME. I SEEM TO DRIFT AWAY WHEN I HEAR THIS CD. I KEEP THE CD AT HOME AND A TAPE IN THE CAR.

I think this is a REALLY great cd!! I love classical music and this one really has some wonderful songs. I especially reccomend #2: Gira con me, #5 To where you are,and #6 Alejate. (this one rules!) I'm also a big Charlotte Church fan and their duet is awesome! ^_^

Josh Groban has a talent far beyond his 20 years. His voice IS music. You would never expect a rich, emotion-filled voice to come from unassuming young man. But the moment he sings, you cling to every note. He has a voice you will never tire of very much like Bocelli. A rising, rising star.

The first time I saw Josh was on "Oprah", and his voice is so breathtaking that I cried. The choice of songs are perfect for Josh. Happy listening!

The first time I heard his voice on Ally McBeal... I thought incredible, his voice actually gave me chills (good ones but nonetheless they were chills). When he was on a second time... I was completely glued waiting for him. This Album, CD, Tape whatever you get, you will be in awe of this young man voice. He is so talented.... hopefully more chills on the way. Enjoy!!!

I could listen to this cd over and over again. I saw Josh on the Oprah Winfrey show, but unfortunately missed his name. I went to the Oprah website and searched through all of the archived shows until I finally found his name. I've been listening to his music on his website ever since. Josh's voice is so powerful--it literally gives me goose bumps. My four year old son goes around the house now singing, "To Where You Are." It really is beautiful!

There are simply no words great enough to describe Josh Groban's voice but that of a thousand angels.

I, at first, saw Josh w/ Celine on tv, then he sang a song, one song and I was hooked. Yes, he'll be another star, his voice isbeautiful, clear, expressive, I love to watch him sing.

An absolutely incredible voice coupled with beautiful songs make this CD an absolute must have! You definitely won't be disappointed by this God given talent.

I have never in my life been as moved as I was with his song "To where you are". I get goose pimples everytime I listen to him. I really love to listen to his rich and mature voice. To find out this man is only 19 has thrown me for a loop. Thank you for singing with such love and passion. You can tell by just listening to you how much you love your job. Thank you very much.

I've listened to this CD over and over. Every time I notice something new. The only (and very minor) complaint I have about anything on this CD is in the ''Jesu, joy of man's desiring'' and it is the pronunciation (singing?) of desiring - it really should not be dee - siring, but duhsiring, in my humble and not expert choral opinion.

This is one of my favorite cd's. I'm into lyrics, so I love how all the songs have words to them...even if I don't understand most of them. He makes classical music cool. If you weren't a fan of classical music, I'm willing to bet that you'd be after you listen to this. And his duet with Charlotte Church is the best!

Josh Groban has a talent far beyond his 19 years. His voice IS music. I first heard him sing as part of his character on an episode of Ally McBeal. You would never expect such a rich, emotion-filled voice to come from a tall, moderately-built, somewhat shy teenager. But the moment he begins to sing, you will stop what you are doing and cling to every note he sings. This is his first album but will definitely not be his last. He has a voice you will never tire of.

What a wonderful 21-year voice. Received Josh Groban's CD as a holiday gift. What a pleasant surprise! How soothing of a voice. Josh, dinner with that special someone, candles and a fireplace would make for a perfect evening. A true must buy for others. Spread the word to all your friends and family!

I LOVE JOSH GROBAN'S VOICE. REGARDLESS OF WHAT SONG HE SINGS IT TOUCHES YOUR HEART. THIS YOUNG MAN WILL BE AROUND FOR A VERY LONG TIME.

Once in a blue moon you will hear a voice that will haunt you and stay with you. This is Josh Groban. His maturity is beyond his age and as is his voice. As his voice seasons, so will his songs. The music world has waited so long to hear a true voice, and Josh is here to stay.

I bought this c.d. right after it came out and have not stopped listening to it since. All of the songs are great, and some of them have even taken opera to a new level, pairing it with a good beat and great lyrics (and incredibly sexy voice ;-) ) A definate must have.
