It couldn't be more ...PASSIONATE ! Sublime.,
By A Customer
This review is from: Passion (Audio CD)
Gifted with a voice that illuminates with such vigor to convey life's most inspiring and harshest moments,Belle presents an ambum that steadfastly utilizes her vocal attibutes.
The majority of the songs are ballads and mid-tempo numbers.And Belle extends so much PASSION in each one of these songs.
She's lacking nothing on any of these performances and the material is appropriately suited for the legendary songstress.
From jazzy blues to soulful R'n'B and pop oriented tunes,Belle's vocals are mesmerising to the last note.
The best track,maybe,is "IF I COUD" : a timeless tune that reflects a parent's desire to make life as easy as possible for their offspring.
It cracked Billboard R'n'B TOP TEN after 21 weeks on the charts.
Compare to the Barbra Streisand's and Nancy Wilson's versions of the same song,Regina's one is without doubt and by far the BEST.
