    I think this might well upset both Motown and Il Divo fans - this lead track seems to be a hybrid of Marvin and Tammi's and Miss Ross's version with Marvin's vocal shifted in tempo - not sure I like it at all but will reserve a full opinion until I've heard the whole LP.

    Whoever presented Il Divo with this idea should be fired...for real. I knew this would be a bad idea, just going off of the press release. Hearing the single release of Ain't No Mountain on Spotify confirmed everything. I actually ended up laughing, because it sounds so ridiculous.

    As in, "we'll give him a fair trial and then sentence him to death?" LOL...isn't that quote from "Alice in Wonderland" or something like that?

    Hey, Jack! I'm sorry to have repeated your earlier thread. I was out of commission for a few months and didn't realize that you had already announced it. I just found out about IL DIVO's new Motown-tribute CD last night, thinking it was brand-new news and wanted to share it.

    It might not be our cup of tea but they still have a large following who might hear something new!

    I listened to their cover of "Ain’t No Mountain High Enough", and I wouldn’t say it’s bad, it’s just... quite strange. I also have no idea who these guys are, so maybe I can’t appreciate them so much. I'll still hold out for the rest of the album, maybe it’ll be worth it for their version of "Say You, Say Me” or something.

    Good to see some love for Motown though

    How sad that the only news that's being posted about new Motown releases is a covers album by Il divo. Is this what it's come to.

    I didn't mind it. I liked the orchestration and the energy and Marvin. They really had to augment the track with female background singers...I missed the top notes from Tammi. I would have thought the tenors could have provided those top notes. One voice I found too operatic.
