3.0 out of 5 stars Also Beautiful but Disappointing!, 11 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Woman to Woman (Audio CD)
I use the word "also" because I found the same experience with George Michael's "Patience" CD recently. Both are English and wonderful vocalists but these 2 albums proved disappointing for me. Both CDs are very different - G. ML's CD is modern while Miss Laine's CD is timeless - but both despite many moments of beauty proved ultimately disappointing to me. They both lacked that special magic that is required to make an album a treasure to behold! Cleo's CD has an interesting concept in that she is covering songs written solely by women - hence, the title "Woman to Woman", but the concept is more intriguing than the finished artwork. Miss Laine's covers of other female's creations - including Judy Collins's "Since You've Asked", Joni Mitchell's "Both Sides Now", Billie Holiday's "Fine and Mellow", etc. - are lovely but the sum total does not add up. Earlier albums such as - "Feel the Warm", "Best Friends", "Wordsongs", etc. - stand head and shoulders above this 1989 offering. Still, despite my reservations it is good, possesses Miss Laine's remarkable voice and may appeal to others.
