I've been a Barbra Streisand fan since her first LP - The Barbra Streisand Album - that was released in the early 60s. It is wonderful to hear her wrapped in such gorgeous music sounding so fresh and vulnerable again. Barbra's instrument always sounds magnificent. But not since her Peter Matz days has she sounded so exposed or inviting. It's a brilliant offering from the first note to the last.
Where Do You Start, Gentle Rain and Smoke Gets In Your Eyes are extraordinary. Finally, a return to real music for anynoe who appreciates high art!
