By either design or happenstance Il Divo began the Timeless tour at the start of the year but only released the accompanying album now. As a result I’d already heard all these songs live, so I knew in advance just how good this album was going to be.
All of Me is possibly my favourite track, I love the beat they’ve put to it, I love that it’s sung in English. Closely following is Right Here Waiting, which is one of my all time favourite songs, their version is just ❤ ❤ ❤ emojis are for when words fail right?
They have gone back to singing in several languages on this album, Spanish, Italian, French and English. The tour was at stately homes and castles, something else they haven’t done for years. I love it.
There is a Spanish cover of Robbie Williams’s Angels (also a favourite of mine) and no I’m not sitting here swaying my arms in the air from the comfort of my sofa… ahem.
The song choices on here are perfect, there are the standards you’d expect like Love Me Tender and Unforgettable, then there’s All of Me, a cover of Adele’s Hello (Hola) and the theme from Love Story (Where Do I Begin) sung in Italian and with enough gusto to make it the *operatic* piece of the album. To be honest I love every track on here, Toi et Moi is playing as I type and it really is beautiful.
Timeless is one of the best albums they’ve done simple as that.
