Description & Features+

Producer, record executive, and songwriter David Foster has a long history of trying to wed commercial considerations to the lighter elements of pop music, and in young Josh Groban, whom he adopted as a prot?g? in late 1998 when the singer was 17, he is trying to get in on the classical crossover market effectively occupied by the likes of Andrea Bocelli, Sarah Brightman, and Charlotte Church (who duets with Groban on "The Prayer" here). Groban has a rich voice that falls somewhere between a low tenor and a high baritone, and Foster has here crafted or commissioned music that will sound classical to the ears of non-classical fans, much of it with lyrics in Italian to complete the effect. "Gira con Me," for example, is a slow ballad that sounds like it may have escaped from a minor opera, but in fact was composed by Foster and songwriter/producer Walter Afanasieff (best-known for his work with Mariah Carey). Groban is also given some ballads in English, with songwriting credits that include such Southern California pop-meisters as Richard Marx, Albert Hammond, Carole Bayer Sager, and Foster's wife, Linda Thompson. The result is an ersatz classical crossover record that won't fool the experts but easily could find its way into households that welcome Celine Dion and other sub-operatic emoters of her ilk. Groban is certainly not to be blamed for taking his chances with Foster instead of staying in college or pursuing a classical career, and his first album is enjoyable even if it doesn't live up to its pretensions. ~ William Ruhlmann, All Music Guide

Ratings & Reviews+

Josh Groban - Josh Groban is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Emotional Outlet This album moves through several different styles seamlessly and allows for a heartfelt release of emotion. It is moving, tender, glorious, and worshipful. I wish his albums came with interpretations of the songs that are not sung in English.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEAUTIFUL VOICE I HAVE HAD THIS CD FOR A FEW YEARS AND I NEVER TIRE OF LISTENING TO THIS YOUNG MAN'S VOICE.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Josh Groban Never Fails to Amaze Seriously, words can't describe how good Josh Groban's albums are! You have to experience them yourself. And you will wonder why you haven't listened to his music earlier! HE IS THE BEST! When I first heard his voice, my jaw droped to the ground, I immediately listen to more of his songs on youtube, and I knew then... I was hooked! Ever since the day when 17-year-old Josh Groban sang in public for the first time, he's continued to amaze with his gifted voice. Since then he's sold over 27 MILLION albums, all of his albums went Multi-Platinum. If you're still debating whether-or-not to buy his albums, go listen to samples of his songs on amazon/itunes, and you'll be hooked, just like I was. (Songs I highly recommend trying out first are February Song, When You Say You Love Me, Si Volvieras a Mi, My Confession, Bells of New York City, Happy In My Heartache, You Are Loved (Don't Give Up), Love Only Knows, Awake, Below The Line.) He also made an awesome Christmas album, by the way. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Brilliant Debut Album! Josh Groban has consistently proven himself to be a first-rate vocalist and musician, and this album proves it. From the soaring athems of "Alla Luce Del Sole", the rock-infused "Canto La Vita" and the gentle "Vincent (Starry Night)", Groban displays his versatility in the vocal field and proves that classical can be cool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Music Josh Groban has always been my favorite musician of all time. He is totally unique using different Romance languages, and at the end of a long day, this CD is a stress-reliever. My young boys (ages 1 and 3) also enjoy this CD.
