This review is from: Half The Perfect World (Audio CD)
Sorry, but I can't share the enthusiasm most reviewers have shown for this album. One cracking track - Leonard Cohen's "Blue Alert"- a few good ones (the opener, the title track, "All I Need Is A Little Bit" & her cover of Tom Waits "Heart of Saturday Night") and a lot of rather forgettable fillers. Overall, this sounded like an album made by an artist largely treading water, maybe fulfilling a contractual requirement.
Just about a three star - but only just.
Overall a disappointing effort, especially when made by a great singer with the company of great musicians like Walter Becker, David Piltch & Dean Parks. I'm sure she'll do better in the future.
