    If you can get past lyrics bloated with dark nights and winter moons, Illuminations might be Groban's handsomest effort yet.

    Smart guy that he is, Rubin doesn't eliminate surging melodrama from Groban's bag of tricks but he does limit and mute the palette, making sure the strings don't soar so high and that the singer doesn't bellow.

    If not quite a renaissance, Illuminations at least suggests Groban is finally ready to let some more light in.

    If Rubin managed to find the core of Groban, it's a sad fact that what remains after the layers have been removed is an incredible vocalist and a one-note songwriter.
