F09537 - Barbra Streisand "What Matters Most" 2CDDeluxe Edition w/DVD
Just like buttah!
Listening to the newest release by the best female singer to date certainly surpasses any expectations I had. Alan and Marilyn Bergman's delicious lyrics have always been a delight, add in Barbra's better than ever golden voice and the result is a glorious treat for the senses. I think it is one of the best albums Barbra has ever done. I can relate to the lyrics on a personal level which is an added bonus. I enjoyed the 2nd CD which are all repeats but the real treat is the new one. Best song in my opinion is the last on the CD which is
the title song What Matters Most. The added DVD is a treat. Some of the interviews have been shown elsewhere but that doesn't diminish from the overall enjoyment of watching it.
Worth the wait for sure!
Another great work of art by Barbra!!! Her voice is like a fine wine...it gets better with age.
It is a mellow, relaxing album and the songs are just beautiful. I would say it has a jazzy feel to it. I just wish she had rerecorded the songs on the bonus album because her voice is so different from when they were originally recorded. She and the Bergmans make a great team. The DVD was also very interesting.
I would definitely recommend this to every Streisand fan.
Barbara has another hit
My wife is a huge fan and she was thrilled to received this package. This is consistent Barbara, the songs are excellent and the packaging is wonderfull.
what matters most
long time Streisand fan, still has a great voice and some nice new songs. nice music for road trips ....
Pieces of Magic
When our Barbra releases a new album it's always an exciting event and "What Matters Most" is by no means an exception to that rule. This deluxe version with QVC's extra bonus DVD marks this occasion like a Streisand Christmas, if you will! 10 never before sung gems by Streisand from the Bergmans', in addition to the second CD of 10 classics that any Streisand fan will know by heart creates a special joy filled day! Barbra begins with "The Windmills of Your Mind" and as she sang that first word, "round" it take one's breath away and slowly the strings come in and yes she's still got it, that pure voice with tiny bits of age yet still so magical. "I'll Never Say Goodbye" from the forgotten film "The Promise" is the stand out cut on this fine work. What's so great about Barbra is how she can take a song like Nice N Easy that so associated with Sinatra and give it such a fresh spin, with Its sexy interpretation. The most heartfelt song though has to be the title cut. All of us that have loved at all, no matter if it's romantic, or even the love of an animal can relate to this very personal song. Being a QVC customer we received what no other company in the world could give us this fabulous DVD. There are moments of Music Cares from last year Grammy Accolade that went to Barbra. The real magic is though the conversation with Alan, Marilyn & Barbra. This CD will linger on one's mind long after it leaves the player.
The 2 cd's are great - but the DVD broke when I attempted to take from jacket so I cannot play
She has never sounded better..love all the songs!!
Love the music, bought one for me and one as a gift. Can't wait to give it at Christmas.
Amazing Words and Voice
The words and music cannot be compared to any other works of songwriters and/or composers. Barbra is and has always been in a class by herself. Nobody has ever been able to hold a candle to her voice and interpretations of the words. So glad QVC offered this combination of CD/DVD.
The Threesome-Fabulous! The Voice-Impeccable and Lovely! The Lyrics-Heavenly. The Music-Divine. A must have in your collection. The additional DVD was great. The Bergman's and Barbara can't be beat.
Barbra's Talent Never Disappoints
I've been listening to Ms. Streisand for years and have collected many or most of her recordings. I truly admire her always striving for perfection. This CD just happens to begin with one of my favorite songs: 'Windmills of Your Mind'. I'm thrilled that I ordered this with the DVD being a special bonus. Barbra is perhaps the grandest singer of our time and I never tire of listening to her. I disagree with her politics, but her beautiful musical voice stands in a class of it's own and fills my home with beautiful sound a great deal of the time. I wish her many more years of sharing her incomprable talents with the rest of the world.
that ' s what is all about barbra on that new release, a loving entertainer ! her voice is amazing on this cd ,a pure streisand gift for all to enjoy .....merci madame from
