Eros marks a new chapter in the Italian singer and composer Eros Ramazzotti's ever-growing international career. Offering a wider spectrum of Ramazzotti's musicianship and the combination of well-crafted compositions and outstanding performances, the album is a great work of serious contemporary pop music. The CD covers different rhythmic feels, reaching its climax with "Le Cose Della Vita," a song that perfectly suits Ramazzotti's talent. His vocal style is one of the trademark qualities of the whole collection: a nasal, simply recognizable approach with a lot of intimacy and a great sense of expression that find its roots in the great tradition of the Italian bel canto. Eros offers the right balance between the important melodic Italian tradition and the complexity of today's international pop music. Truly one of the most important releases on today's European pop scene, ready to find its own place in the American market. --Ernesto De Pascale

"If you like Italian singers (and I'm referring to that nasal pop sound so frequently heard in Italy), you'll love Eros. He's hard to beat. This fabulous singer/songwriter is simply one of the best in Europe, and the strength and emotion in his voice, as well as in his compositions, are something to experience.The Highlights: The duets..."Música E" with Andrea Bocelli is a long (9.48 minutes) and beautifully melodic piece, unique and gorgeous. "Cosas de la Vida/Can't Stop Thinking of You" with Tina Turner is a knockout. They actually have very similar voices, which makes it a fascinating blend. Perhaps my favorite track of all is the jazzy "Memories", sung to a solo piano accompaniment (played by Celso Valli) and it's a gem. That last note is exquisite !These 16 tracks last for nearly 77 minutes, so you get a lot of wonderful music for your $$, and like it says in the booklet, "Cuando las canciones nacen del corazón, permanecen en el tiempo". Yes, this is music that comes from the heart, and this CD is a classic for all time."
Definitely his best album.

"Eros Ramazzotti is the best-selling italian singer. During his career he had made several hits and had worked with singers like Tina Turner, Cher and Andrea Bocelli.
This cd conteins his biggest hits by 1997 when it was released.
Some of the biggest hits on this album are: "Terra promessa", "Adesso tu", "Ma che bello questo amore", Musica e" and "Piu bella cosa".
For this production Eros re-recorded his hits. "Musica e" was this time recorded next to Andrea Bocelli and "Cose della vita" with Tina Turner. The song is amazing. They rock together.
There's also a new song in this album that it's very good. I'm talking about "Quanto amore sei" (How much love you are).
The only advice I'm gonna give about this album is not to buy the Spanish version. The Italian is much better, even though Eros sings good in Spanish."
A must have for any Eros Ramazzotti fan!

"This is by far Ramazzotti's best collection to date! He is a true talent in the Italian pop music world. His lyrics speak to the heart in such a genuine way, that every word comes alive with meaning; he knows how to masterfully capture the love, uncertainty, and hope of human emotion. An added bonus to this CD is his duet with Andrea Bocceli."
