Vonda's new songs capture the heart and sole of Ally McBeal,
By A Customer
This review is from: Heart & Soul - New Songs From Ally McBeal (Audio CD)
Vonda Shepard's second album of songs from Ally McBeal compliments the first one well. It contains many of the musical flourishes that are a hallmark of her musical arrangements, whilst adding enough variations on a theme to maintain their originality.
The album stands on its own merits, but will also help afficianados of the TV series to picture scenes featuring their favorite characters. Vonda Shepard's own songs compare well with those that she covers, a particular favourite being 'Baby, Don't You Break My Heart Slow'. She is at her best singing songs that tell a story about love.
When listened to as a whole, this album is perhaps less compelling that the first one. However, this is offset by the best songs, as they raise an already high standard still further.
