Andrea Bocelli fares well with Amore, his grab bag of reworked classic love songs (from ”Besame Mucho” to ”Can’t Help Falling in Love”). The blind Italian tenor has sold nearly 50 million records worldwide since his 1997 debut, Romanza, so he’s more experienced at varying the tempo, volume, and intensity, rendering rarer overblown anthems, like ”Because We Believe,” more forgivable. His duets are shakier: Christina Aguilera wails wildly on the mambo staple ”Somos Novios (It’s Impossible),” while Stevie Wonder’s hokey harmonica sputters through the Italian standard ”Canzoni Stonate” — but they still feel relatively unforced, soothing the soul without yanking the heartstrings.
