I love BS her musical ideas and magnificent voice, vocal range, and of course vocal gymnastics. This album was recorded when she was at the peak of her magnificent vocal ability, so I had very high hopes for this album.
However, for me personally, it just doesn't work as well as I’d expected. While there is indeed a sweetness to her voice, for me, there is no flow from her with these songs. Her voice seems almost constrained by the style and language of these classic songs. A legendary great artist, but I don’t feel that it’s one of her best albums or concepts. Sorry Barbra.
