Album Review

More seasoned in years than Josh Groban, this Rhodesia-born and Greek-raised and cultured tenor is a veteran stage performer well versed in everything from classical opera to popular musical theater, even Shakespeare. With Peter Asher as executive producer, the idea is to showcase the ethnic and multi-lingual diversity of an extraordinary artist while also nudging him into the mainstream of adult contemporary music. The good news is that he has an equal, relaxed facility for English, Spanish, Italian, and his native Greek, and like Groban, he even engages the hearts of listeners who can't understand the words (translations are included). The general technique is the slow groove beginning with subdued vocals, then a burst of passion and sizzle as the beat and production values pick up. Producer Steve Woods contributes a few new dramatic tracks (the best of these is the soaring, wistful "Vincerò, Perderò"), but it's even more interesting to hear what Frangoulis does with material based on Puccini (the seductive, exotic ballad "Sometimes I Dream") and classics from the film Life is Beautiful (the mystical "Buongiorno Principessa") and Nino Rota (an atmospheric, flamenco-tinged "Canzone Arrabbiata"). Rock fans looking for a connective thread will gravitate to the balmy Italian-to-English version of the Moody Blues' "Nights in White Satin," whose pop-classical flavor is perfect for an artist trying to bridge those two genres. Justin Hayward is on hand to sing along and nod his approval of this loving tribute.

Customer Reviews


This is the most remarkable album. Almost 10-years old now, it remains as vibrant and fresh as when it was released in the United States. In my opinion, there is not one note, one chord, one sound that is nothing short of sheer perfection.

Mario Frangoulis, not just meets, he exceeds his audiences highest expectations! Charming, charismatic, warm, sensitive, caring and a true gentleman, Frangoulis is remarkable at everything he does. If you do not own this album, you should. It is musical genius and will always remain at the very top of my iPod playlist . . . . his follow up albums are equally intoxicating and his 'soon to be released' BEAUTIFUL THINGS is eagerly anticipated for in his own words 'It is similar to the SOMETIMES I DREAM years'.

Keep following this performer - and FOLLOW YOUR HEART!

Mario frangoulis

One of the best collection of songs that
I have heard. One never gets tired of
this music. Outstanding lyrics.


Mario is so easy on the ears (and coincidentally on the eyes). His voice rivals some of the all-time greats in its unique quality. He's always straight on-pitch (unlike Josh Groban and Andrea Bocelli -- who I enjoy as well). But his voice has a deep, masculine quality that is positively alluring. If you're going to sample before buying, try "Vincero, Perdero", Natualeza Muerta, Nights in White Satin (duet with Justin Hayward of the Moody Blues) and Non Sara.
