E Piu’ Ti Penso
Label: Rentor / Geffen Records
Is there a secret summer camp where Italian boys learn the arts of musical woo-pitching and full-voiced light opera? Let's call it Camp Popera (frankly, a better name for the Italian talent show that gave Il Volo wings) and imagine that the Three Tenors founded it and hired Andrea Bocelli and Il Divo as counselors. If such a place exists, we'd wager these three cuties won every three-legged race. Their debut shows off seriously mature voices (not to mention senses of romance) and a way with the classics ("O Sole Mio" anyone?), but also a slightly hipper, almost R&B take on the poperatic style.
