Caruso's phrasing and breath control are unsurpassed.

It sounds strange the insertion of vowel-like sounds in consonant-groups like -nc-, nt- -ns- etc., i.e. (V indicates a vowel epenthesis): ancora becomes anVcora, canto > canVto and consolar > conVsolar. This pronunciation is neither admitted nor appreciated today.

Yes, he constantly improved as a singer. Some people only like his early more lyrical recordings. I think he was at his best in the last recordings.
