All That Echoes - Very Good, Based on 4 Critics

AllMusic - 80
Based on rating 8/10

Vocalist Josh Groban's sixth studio album, 2013's All That Echoes, features more of the crossover classical music that has become his trademark, while pushing further than ever toward the pop end of the spectrum. This is largely due to producer Rob Cavallo (Green Day, Goo Goo Dolls, Paramore), who frames Groban's burnished croon in sweeping alt-rock arrangements that layer atmospheric guitar lines against grand orchestral segments. It also doesn't hurt that with every album, Groban has garnered more co-writing credits, adding to the intimate and personal vibe of All That Echoes.

Josh GrobanAll That Echoes(Reprise)Rating: 4 stars (out of 5) Although rock and Josh Groban have rarely, if ever, been used in a sentence together, All That Echoes is a rewarding fusion of pop, rock, and classical music theories. With the assistance of veteran producer Rob Cavallo (Green Day, My Chemical Romance) manning the board for his latest and first release since 2010, Groban delivers his biggest sounding and most significant set. Groban’s sixth album finds the operatic pop star co-writing the lion’s share of the album’s material himself, while stepping out of his comfort zone and blurring the edges of his usual musical fare.

Their review was positive

The LA singer’s voice remains an undeniably rich and powerful instrument. Nick Levine 2013 It's tempting to dismiss Josh Groban as yet another classical crossover villain: a kind of one-man Il Divo. After all, it was his version of You Raise Me Up that Westlife copied and turned into an X Factor favourite. Trouble is, the LA-born singer comes across very well in interviews, displaying a playful sense of humour that's not present in his music.
