Some secrets are better kept

"There is no excuse for this beyond trying to capitalize on the then-waning success of a formerly (briefly) novel sounding voice. While he found success with his forceful, bluesy vocal production in the pop/R&B genre during the earlier part of the last decade, he should have never taken this step. The raspy, strained sounds issuing forth from Mr. Bolton's throat were, by the time of original recording, already beginning to grate on American housewives' nerves. Calling upon such paltry resources borders on the blasphemous in this material. An aria by aria critique would be pointless and would be plain mean. Suffice to say: 'Nessun Dorma'? Maybe not, but a good long nap is definitely the desired alternative to staying awake through this embarrassing display."
Great perfomance for a versatile singer

"It includes a comment by Michael Bolton on the story behind every aria and in my opinion his peculiar voice sounds 'fresh' in this kind of music. If you like this music, I would also recommend you the cd called 'Christmas in Vienna', which feautures M.Bolton,Plácido Domingo and Yin Huang. Make sure your dvd player can play ZONE 1 dvd's.
