This album is by far one of the best she's ever made. It clearly exemplifies Barbra's never weaning demand for beauty, creativity, and... excellence. Hearing this album explains why she is second in the all-time charts, with forty-five gold albums (ahead of The Beatles and The Rolling Stones, exceeded only by Elvis).
In my opinion this album contains some of the best songs she's ever sung. 'Being at war with each other' is a beautiful, captivating song while 'The Best Thing you've ever Done' is one of the greatest examples of how Barbra's emotionally expressive voice can deliver irony so beautifully.
The Way We Were and What are you Doing the Rest of Your Life? may be two of the most enchanting songs ever sung, displaying Barbra's beauty magnificently!
Certainly this is a must-have album, whether or not you're an avid Barbra Streisand fan!
