F08358 - Barbra Streisand "Love Is The Answer" CD Plus Bonus DVD
I have every single album that Barbra Streisand has ever made and am a huge fan, so when I saw this, I put my "reservation" in for a copy. Boy am I disappointed! Like the other reviewers have stated; every song sounds the same. Nothing is upbeat and in fact it all sounds like something you would play softly to put you to sleep. Definitely nothing like her other productions. I have decided to return this and am so glad that I purchased it from QVC, so that I can do that. If I had purchased it from a music store, it would just wind up at my next yard sale for a $1.00. Sorry Barbra.
I AM A YOUNG BARBRA FAN IN MY 20'S I LIKE THIS ALBUM AND I HAVE IT I THINK IT IS ONE OF BARBRA'S BEST I DONT KNOW WHY THEY ARE 4 STARS OR LESS BARBRA STILL HAS A BEAUTIFUL VOICE IS IT HIGH LIKE IT WAS 30 YEARS AGO NO HOWEVER HER VOICE CAN STILL HIT A HIGH NOTE AND STILL IN TUNE BUT REMEMBER BARBRA HAS BEEN AROUND SINCE 1962 THATS 47 YEARS I HAVE MANY OF BARBRA'S ALBUMS BARBRA'S GREATEST ALBUM IS THE BROADWAY ALBUM MY FOVORITY'S FROM BARBRA ALBUMS ARE A LOVE LIKE OURS AND THE BROADWAY ALBUM
what happened here?
i love barbras voice always have.but all i kept saying to my husband is i cant even tell when one song ends and another begins. it all runs togeather each song just sounds the same.
was very surprised. then to find out my bounus cd doesnt even work in any of my players.
i was going to just keep it but when i found the bounus cd doesnt even play i decided it is going back.
there is just nothing exciting about this!!
Streisand is one of my favorite female vocalists, but this selection of songs was terrible. Every song was the same musical style-no variety. If you have insomnia, this will cure you. The only song that began to show some range of expression and dynamics was "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes." Everything else was more of the same. I will return this purchase.
"Love is the Answer" but not this CD!
I admit that Barbra Streisand is my favorite female singer, and I have many of her albums, CD's, sets, but this particular CD is not one I liked at all.
As I listened to the CD, song after song sounded like it was the same melody, not upbeat at all (even dirge-like!), and nothing like I expected songs about the wonders of love to be like.
I love Barbra's voice, but I couldn't help but detect a raspiness in her once-so-clear and perfectly-toned voice, and the recordings were less than what I expected a perfectionist like Babs to produce.
I would not recommend this for Barbra Streisand fans, nor would I suggest this be a "try me" for newcomers of hers.
I am returning this purchase, but not as I'm dissatisfied with QVC at all, but with the quality of the star herself.
I have known of Barbra from the time we were both 17 years old. We were Pregnant with our first child at the same time. I have purhcased many, many Record Albums, Tapes, 8 Track Tapes, and now CD's of her magnificant voice...but this one, I am most disappointed in. Very Sappy, Brabra. All music sounds the same, tone and lyrics are not your style. Sorry I do not like this one!
Beautiful, relaxing CD. You will not be disappointed!
