      a collection you shouldn't miss

      I'm happy to have my copy of this album from Josh Groban which I bought from Amazon. The package contains a double CD showcasing his most unforgettable songs from his recent albums on Disc 1, and a bonus CD of his version of some famous Christmas songs such as Silent Night, Little Drummer Boy and other songs on Disc 2.

      I admire the amazing voice of Josh. It truly stands above all others. I started listening to his music when I see him on an MTV singing the song "Broken Vow". I did not think that a young man like Josh is the voice behind this song. Then I started following his music and love hearing them every time. His deeply inspiring powerful rare voice is really a striking melody for the soul, soothing to the ear and heart-warming music. I also have his "Josh Groban Live in Concert" video which is one of the PBS Great performances and I always love watching it every time.

      Josh Groban: A Collection contains 16 of his greatest hits from Closer, Awake, and Josh's self titled album. I like the orange-themed album design. The inlay cover contains credits of the songs and his finest photographs on each page. Lyrics were not included in the package but are available on his website, joshgroban.com.

      The Songs:


      Disc 1
      1. Oceano (from the album "Closer")
      2. February Song (from "Awake" album)
      3. You Are Loved (Don't Give Up) (from "Awake" album)
      4. You Raised Me Up (from "Closer" album)
      5. In Her Eyes (from "Awake" album)
      6. Awake (from "Awake" album)
      7. Alla Luce Del Sole (from "Josh Groban" album)
      8. To Where You Are (from "Josh Groban" album)
      9. Per Te (from "Closer" album)
      10. Remember When It Rained (from "Closer" album)
      11. Weeping (with Vust Mahlasela and Soweto Gospel Choir) (previously unreleased)
      12. Alejate (from "Josh Groban" album)
      13. Anthem (Live from Chess in Concert) (from forthcoming release "Chess in Concert")
      14. Hymne A L'amour (from "Closer" album)
      15. Smile (from "Awake" album)
      16. Cinema Paradiso (Se) (from "Josh Groban" album)

      Disc 2

      1. Silent Night
      2. Little Drummer Boy
      3. Ave Maria
      4. Panis Angelicus
      5. Petit Papa Noel
      6. Noche De Paz (Silent Night)


      Most of the music that I listen to are more on rock, alternative song mostly played by band. But after discovering the music of Josh Groban, I must say that I was captivated by his great voice. I don't have his entire album that's why I did pick this collection and no regret...I always love listening to this CD. Worth enough for £6.24 cost.

        A voice that Melts.

        For those of you who haven't heard of Josh Groban, shame on you! ;) He's a Califronian vocalist who fuses elements of pop and classical music to create some of the most haunting and amazing songs i've ever heard. His voice quite literally melts and even though this type of music isn't really my favourite the man himself is a master!
        Josh Groban burst on to the international music scene in 2001 with the release of his self-titled debut album featuring the hit single, "To Where You Are." His follow up CD "Closer" with the smash hit "You Raise Me Up" in 2003 is his biggest selling so far (going five times platinum), 2006 he made a return with his triple platinum album 'Awake' and a christmas album 'Noel'.

        'A Collection' was released in 2008 to create a 'greatest hits' album of his best known songs to date, and what a collection it is!

        Disc #1 Tracklisting:

        1. Oceano
        2. February Song
        3. You Are Loved (Don't Give Up)
        4. You Raise Me Up
        5. In Her Eyes
        6. Awake
        7. Alla Luce Del Sole
        8. To Where You Are
        9. Anthem (From Chess) (Live)
        10. Per Te
        11. Remember When It Rained
        12. Weeping (Live) with Vusi Mahlasela and the Soweto Gospel Choir
        13 Alejate
        14 Hymne A L'Amour
        15 Cinema Paradiso (Se)
        16 Smile

        Disc #2 Tracklisting

        1 Silent Night
        2 Little Drummer Boy
        3 Ave Maria
        4 Panis Angelicus
        5 Petit Papa Noël
        6 Noche de Paz (Silent Night)

        For me, words cant descibe Josh Groban - all i know is that his voice is pure brilliance and a raw talent and i'd recommend this album to anyone who likes pop/ballads or classical because you can guarantee you will like some of the tracks on there.

        There are Seven songs on this album that stand out for me and i have them forever placed on my Ipod:
        - February Song - from the 'Awake' album - probably the first song that made me listen to the lyrics of Josh Groban. Its a ballad and his voice stands out on this.
        - You Are Loved (Don't Give Up) - from the 'Awake' Album - this song was released as a single and the lyrics are simply magnifique.
        - You Raise Me Up - well this song has been covered by over 125 artists so it's not hard not to know this one (most recently Westlife) but Josh Groban was the first singer to make it internationally successful - it has a longer introduction that other versions of this song but once again Josh' voice shines.
        - In Her Eyes - i just love the lyrics to this.
        - Awake - this is only recently one of my favourite song, i love the lyrics and Josh's voice (but i could say the same for alot of the songs)
        - To Where you are - i heard this song first when it was covered by X factor band G4, its a weepy and about losing someone.
        - Anthem (From Chess) (Live) - this was performed as part of the musical Chess in concert at the Royal Albert Hall in 2008 featuring Josh Groban alongside Idina Menzel, in which Josh played Anatoly Sergievsky.
        11. Remember When It Rained - I didnt like this song at first but i know a lot of Josh Groban fans or 'grobanites' loved it and the more i listened to it the more i love the lyrics and love the song.


        For me, Josh Groban's music is about meaning and the lyrics to songs as well as his incredible voice. i recommend this to everyone even though its not everyones cup of tea.

        If you like Ballads, Pop and classical .. you will love this.
