Bad Boys

Eclectic collection fits album title well. He is at the top of his mark here

Bad Boy for life

First, I heard this on NPR and thought "I have to download this immediately!!" I have a deep voice as well, and just love singing along to these tracks. People in cars next to me probably think I'm crazy because I find myself making fists and swinging my arms around looking angry. I get too into it. I become a bad boy. Anyway, 5 out of 5 stars!! Blows my mind every time I hear it!

Wrong Fit

As refreshing as it is to hear Terfel in opera (as opposed to yet another song recital), I have to say that the selection of items here is often baffling. Terfel's voice is of the lean, golden sort, but many of the items here call for a completely different sort of voice. They require either a true bass (which Terfel certainly is not, judging from how often the bottom of the voice sounds weak [Tks. 1, 3, 5, 12]) or a big, Verdian baritone (which again Terfel certainly is not, judging by how often he is pushing the voice for size, especially in the middle [Tks. 2, 4, 11, 14]). This isn't to say that the above pieces are sung badly - they are sung as well as they can be by a singer who isn't really suited to them. My impression is even strengthened by the "stunt" piece here, where he sings the Commendatore, Don Giovanni, and Leporello in the statue scene. I can tell we're supposed to be stunned by one voice taking on such disparate parts, but they sound rather too similar and all obviously Terfel. The true prizes here are the ones that make up the middle of the disc (Tks. 6-10), as these are amazingly done, I suspect, precisely because there is a bit too much voice and the impact is wonderful. The bonus Ruddigore piece is an unexpected treat!

Operatic baritone/bass Bryn Terfel forged an acclaimed career based not only upon his rich, booming voice, but also upon his ability to bring abundant personal charisma and enthusiasm to his stage roles. Terfel grew up singing traditional folk songs from his native Wales and entered London's Guildhall School of Music in 1984. He graduated in 1989 and debuted at the Welsh National Opera the following year, performing the role of Guglielmo in Cosi Fan Tutte. 1992 saw Terfel's international breakthrough...
