The album contain a number of tracks from other CD I have of Russell Watson and there are many other artist on this album. It would have been nice if ONLY Russell Watson was the artist not all the others. Hayley Westernra is a great artist as well, who also is on the album.
I recently discovered Yanni, and his stunning album "Inspirato". Russell Watsons is one of the artists featured on this album. I really liked his voice, so I decided to buy his CD. I should have checked the songs list. Platinum Collection. I expected something original, something new. Something by Russell Watson. He has a great voice. But listening another version of tired old classics, well, not exciting. Can somebody recommend a good tenor with his own repertoire? Something that one can be surprised by?
The song Russell did from the show Enterprise, Where My Heart Will Take Me, and which is on this collection, is great. The other pop songs he has done, a couple of which are on here are decent. His Classical/Opera songs are where his voice takes a big drop off. If he would stick to his "pop" voice, he could put together a decent collection of songs. As far as this collection, of songs with mostly his "operetta" voice, it kind of stinks.
