Album review: This is not merely a reissue of Andrea Bocelli hits for the Spanish market but a collection of tracks the blind Italian tenor has recorded in the Spanish language down through the years; several appear to be freshly recorded for this project. Bocelli's Spanish, at least from this Anglophone but Spanish-speaking perspective, is fluent, and the chief question facing buyers will be, as for those interested in the Italian originals, whether they like the tenor's underpowered but distinctively burnished voice. The program tends toward Bocelli standards like Sueño (Sogno) and Romanza -- middle-of-the-road popular selections, essentially; there are some Neapolitan songs but no steps in the direction of Italian opera. Romanza and a few other selections are sung in Italian, and the next-to-last The Prayer, a composition by American songwriter Carole Bayer Sager, is made into a cheesy duet with Celine Dion in which Dion breathily translates Bocelli's Italian words before the pair mysteriously surmounts the language barrier; it's not a convincing finale despite some vocal acrobatics at the end. A more effective duet is Vive Ya!, pairing Bocelli with an Italian singer, Laura Pausini, who is independently popular in Spanish-speaking countries; she does not have Dion's pipes, but the song comes off as a good deal more natural.
