Josh Groban’s sophomore cd, Closer, was released in November 2003. That record skyrocketed to the top of the international charts, selling millions and collecting awards worldwide. David Foster, the architect behind Groban’s debut album, was back in the producer’s seat. With his expertise and superior skills, Foster provided the young singing phenom another masterpiece. Closer, like its predecessor, was a well-balanced mix of adult pop material with a palette of arrangements going from adult contemporary to Latin to operatic. The breakthrough hit was the Irish-flavored “You Raise Me Up.” This quickly became Groban’s signature song and has already been featured on this page in a past review. Currently, rediscover a lesser-known gem from Closer titled, “My Confession.”
