PAUL POTTS IS BACK WITH AN EXTRAORDINARY VOCAL ACHIEVEMENT!

"When I reflect back on the first review I wrote about Paul Potts the voice was searching for a specific "niche" to fit into and in need of artistic maturity. Paul is now back with a new CD, "Passione", and the passage of time has allowed him to develop a new found sound that offers an extraordinary richness and intensity of expression.
What attracts me most in the performance of each song is the sense of spiritual serenity and mounting ecstasy Paul conveys. He bypasses conventional traditions, going his own way with the greatest of imaginative resources which allow him to achieve a superb balance between poise and passion. Technically, the voice has gained considerable strength and conviction leaving you with virtually no grounds for complaint!
"I am thrilled for Paul and admire the inner confidence he has shown by forging ahead to fulfill his personal dreams and ongoing musical journey!"

This CS -Passione - is just too GOOD

"I usually don't write review but Paul Potts' Passione CD is just too good. I have to write something about it.
To be honest with you, I am still listening to track (1) to track (5) and I haven't get a chance to listen to track 6 & beyond yet. Why?! Because that's how good this CD is!!! I am still keep replaying track 5 - "Senza Luce". This is how good it is.
I am sure at some point, I will have the courage to move on to track 6, but the songs are so passionate and heartfelt, I am just playing it endlessly. Also, I can hear that the music arrangement and overall sound quality are one step better than One Chance CD. One Chance CD is great, of course. Who can beat Paul with the Nessun Dorma & Time to Say Goodbye anyway? ^__^
Anyway, I preorder this CD and it arrived on May 4. 3 days later, I am still enjoying the first 5 songs and literally NOT ABLE to move to track 6 and beyond. This is unreal. My wife got my CD now so I have to get it back from her!
I sincerely wish that Amazon give us 6 stars because it truly deserve it.
Another winner by Paul Potts

For those of you who are familiar with Paul Potts who was discovered on the show "Britain's Got Talent," I think you're going to love his second CD. His entry on that show, Nessun Dorma was widely viewed on youtube a couple years ago. I bought his first CD, One Chance right after it came out. I'm glad he's finally released another and hope it won't be so long before his next.
Every song in this collection is a winner, but my favorites are Bellamore, Il Canto and Piano. (Why is it that everything sounds so much more romantic in Italian?) I bought the MP3 version since everything ends up on my iPod anyway. Paul's voice is so amazing. It's hard to believe that he was a cell phone salesman before being discovered on that TV show. It's so nice when someone like him who is so talented is finally recognized and becomes a star. I'm sure this won't be his last CD."
