2 stars This is a remake of the album Per Un Amico. The only difference is that the lyrics are in English. I'm not a big fan of this album. The original is great, but something is lost in translation on this one (No pun intended)

The singer didn't have any of the same feeling and emotion behind the lyrics that he had in the original. Partly because he wasn't an english speaker.

The instrumental sections seem like they are done in poor recording quality on this, while the Italian version was very good quality. That combined with what seemed to me like a heavily accented singer stumbling over unfamiliar English words just ruined the album.

I highly reccomend Per Un Amico instead of this album. Its a much better version, mainly for its sound quality and the singing. The lyrics flow much better when in Italian. Listen to Per un Amico instead, you won't regret it.
