Bloody Barbra! As unorthodox as it may be for me to be writing about Barbra Streisand, well, here I go. A friend found it somewhat amusing burning me a copy of this the other day, demanding that I should give it a go. My initial thought was: “What the f**k, Chris Brown’s new CD is out, and you’re getting me this?”. So, I thought it was equally fair – though quite challenging on my behalf – to give this a proper listen, just to aggravate my friend. After reluctantly playing the entire album once, 3 days later I am secretly enjoying this. In fact, spin after spin it gets better and better, Barbra’s dominating voice is unmatched, nevermind that the material overall is too lacklustre for my liking. That opening duet with the velvety-voiced Michael Buble is wonderful, and the duets with Lionel Richie, Andrea Bocelli and Elvis, they are most enjoyable. Some of the songs are helplessly lukewarm and rather predictable, but I am guessing that, if I can appreciate some of this stuff, then dedicated fans will…

This is not a perfect album. Perhaps it’s because I know most of … This is not a perfect album. Perhaps it’s because I know most of the original songs so well that it becomes jarring to hear them done differently. Not all the pairings work well either. But there are some absolute gems here, like the “I still can see your face” duet with Andrea Bocelli.Other notable tracks are “It Had to be You” with Michael Buble and “Somewhere” with Josh Groban. The duets with John Mayer, her son Jason Gould and Billy Joel are well done too. It’s the Babyface, Stevie Wonder and Lionel Ritchie tracks that leave me cold. Maybe I’d hoped for more with those incredible voices.I’m giving it 4 stars because the album works well as a whole listening experience. You never get bored as there is plenty of variety and Barbra’s voice is perfect. You can tell she had fun making the album and I love reading the notes on each track which is something Barbra often does, which makes buying the CD essential.If it’s…

The Queen is back… And she’s brought Partners. From The Greatest Star, the most successful female recording artist of all time, and the only artist to have a number one album in five consecutive decades, comes her stunning new duets album “Partners.”Barbra Streisand is, without any doubt, a living legend, and she proves her status here in her new album, reinventing classic songs of hers along with new additions to her catalogue. But fans of Streisand shouldn’t fear, these aren’t the same old songs we’ve heard countless times before – new life has been breathed into these favourites, with a whole different meaning and sound – you’ll be surprised at how new these songs sound. Whether an old fan whose loved Streisand for years, or someone interested in her – this is the album to get to know Barbra and fall in love with her for the first time – or be reminded why you fell in love with her in the first place.The album includes timeless additions such as “The Way We Were” with Lionel Richie (which…
