iTunes Editors' Notes

This understated yet emotionally resonant album strikes a note of hope amidst heartache, offering a toast to life and the promise of its eternal renewal. Producer Diana Krall helps keep the focus upon Streisand’s inimitable voice, framing her with Johnny Mandel’s well-tailored arrangement and her own smooth piano work. Streisand finds a new richness in these mostly familiar tunes, treating them as immediate expressions of feeling rather than cherished standards. “In the Wee Small Hours of the Morning” and “Here’s That Rainy Day” have a confessional quality, underscored by her intimate, nuanced delivery. She brings out the wry humor beneath the sadness in “Spring Can Really Hang You Up the Most” and finds the pathos within “Smoke Gets In Your Eyes”. The Brazilian tunes “Gentle Rain” and “Love Dance” add a sultry rhythmic pulse to the album’s elegant ambiance. Overall, Love Is the Answer ranks among Streisand’s most unguarded and revelatory works. The warmth and grace of its performances can be heard with even more clarity on the quartet-only recordings found on the album’s deluxe edition.
