ALBUM REVIEW: Superstar Groban is on top form once again
Josh Groban: Bridges - Out Now
American songwriter, actor and record producer Josh Groban has released his eighth studio album 'Bridges.'
This 12-track album has a bit of everything, from original tracks that showcase his velvet tones to covers of Simon and Garfunkel's classic 'Bridge Over Troubled Water' and Snow Patrol's 'Run'.
It is on the track 'Run' that he teams up with the wonderful Sarah McLachlan.
Groban really has it all. Not only does he have the looks, he's also super-talented.
His voice cannot be faulted - and what's more on this album he sings in, not only English, but also French, Italian and Spanish.
He duets with both Vincente Amigo on that track 'Musica Del Corazon' and with Andrea Bocelli on 'We Will Meet Once Again.'
The opener track 'Granted' is particularly note-worthy, where he reminds listeners to do what they love and never take a single breath for granted.
Jennifer Nettles appears on '99 Years', a track that has a country-feel and has you swaying along.
My only criticism - I've never liked the song 'Bridge Over Troubled Water'. Other than that it's a great listen.
