As winter fastens its icy grip across the country, what better way to pass the time than in the company of ? The Italian tenor's latest album is this sunny collection of songs, born in holiday destinations in Latin America and along the Mediterranean. Recorded at his home in Tuscany, Bocelli serenades us in six languages, his relaxed manner belying an innate artistry as he moves from the classical style into a popular vein with consummate ease...

Crossover phenomenon Andrea Bocelliunderstands that romantic melody is the essence of Verdi's arias,and the tenor has a strong enough technique (and clarion highnotes) to handle most of the challenges. He scores points forbravery in this ambitious set of 15 popular opera excerpts. Thegreats may have sung Verdi with more imagination and variety, butmany a "real" opera singer has done the composer less justice.

Andrea Bocelli's bazillion fans are getting the tenor's eighth complete opera recording, Carmen: Duets & Arias. Bloodless as Don Jose, Bocelli challenges past dramatic tenors by entirely rethinking the tragic transfor-mation from upstanding brigadier to coquette slayer. Instead, it's one pretty number after the next. With a fit cast around him ? including Marina Domashenko as Carmen ? it's even more offensive that the artist billed in the largest font offers the smallest returns.

Sound: Magnificent. A voice so powerful. A voice so stunning. Andrea Bocelli shows on this album that he definitely is one the of greatest singers in the music industry today.

His voice alone captures your attention and draws you into the music. Amore gives the listener an opportunity to experience what Andrea Bocelli does best and he does not folly...

Americans, by and large, are not an opera-loving people. It hardly matters whether it's Verdi or Wagner, Mozart or Mascagni -- as far as the average joe is concerned, it's all over when the fat lady sings. Yet the most popular artist on the Billboard album charts is Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli...

Despite our reputation as TV-watching, beer-swilling lowbrows, we Americans really do have an appreciation for art. We'll line up to see Vermeers and Van Goghs, make a Christmas ritual of the Nutcracker, and flock to Shakespeare (or, at least, Shakespeare in Love). But when we hear the word coloratura, we reach for our revolvers. Americans, by and large, are not an opera-loving people...

Easy as it might be to condescend to Andrea Bocelli in general and to this CD in particular, there's a lot of heart here. There's also a lot of history; this is the sort of material that Beniamino Gigli - and record buyers - loved in the 1930s, 40s, and 50s. With a voice like Gigli's, this sort of crooning religiosity was irresistible. Bocelli is no Gigli, but he's at least a Mario Lanza, and that's good enough for me. Bocelli was born in Tuscany in 1958...

The songs on this disc don't really lend themselves to traditional critical scrutiny. And, as tempting as it is to take a series of shots at the open goal of Bocelli's musical style, it would probably be more useful to the millions out there who will no doubt buy this album to simply highlight a few pros and cons in the approaches taken. Yes, most of the arrangements on Vivere would prove mildly offensive to many even if heard spilling from the long bar at the back of a cross-channel ferry...
