Album Review

Heralded as one of the great performers of the world, Liza Minnelli sang, acted, and lived her way into the hearts of millions with her heartfelt vocals, personal style, charismatic flair, and with the ups and downs of her personal life. The Best of Liza Minnelli: twentieth century Masters — The Millennium Collection features Minnelli at the most emotionally potent moments and dramatic peaks of her career as a singer and performer. From her sexy, musky vocals on "The Man I Love" to the sad, give-it-her-all tune "Come Saturday Morning," the collection features Minnelli at her finest, capturing her most powerful moments on stage and in the studio. It was songs like these that helped Minnelli make an indelible mark on the public. So often was she brought to an emotionally vulnerable level in front of her audience that she could not help but reveal the sheer emotional honesty she put into her work. The built-up crescendo on the classic Cabaret tune "Maybe This Time" is enough to send shivers and chills up and down your spine like a speeding train on a hot rail. Minnelli showcases her ability to harness the power of her voice and bring her audience to its knees on the theatrical "The Look of Love," a smoky tune that best showcases the dramatic prowess of her vocals. Minnelli could also address her audience in such a standstill candid manner that it brought out a deep-rooted humanity in her vocals that shone through her work as a performance. Such sincerity is evident on the live recorded track "Come Saturday Morning," on which she breaks into a brief spoken word sentiment about life when she says, "The trouble is that probably all the good things take place in no more than a minute." The album features such unforgettable classics as the sultry smooth tune "Stormy Weather" and the funky blues tune "Come Rain or Come Shine." It's no wonder Minnelli was a starlet in her own right — she truly was a compelling creature. Her lighthearted humor and vivid playfulness shine through on the live French version of "Liza (With a 'Z')," which also proves her wonderful ability to capture a character in perfect form. Her zealousness and the nearly tangible life force in her voice are mirrored by the incomparable live recording of the final track, "Cabaret." The song is a fitting choice for the last track on the collection because of its similarity to Minnelli herself, who few could follow. ~ Kerry L. Smith, Rovi

Bravo Liza is right!!! So few have the guts to be her.......

I can ramble for hours on the merits of Liza but most importantly, she is Liza! An icon then and now. If you want honest, highly well performed musical performer that, well, may not be your taste, then let Liza take you on her trip. She knows how to do it best. Explore music and you will most definatly come to Liza at some point and love it. If you already have, leave review here. Liza, I would pay a lot to see you!

Liza Minnelli Is genius!

I'm a 16 year old girl who loves Liza Minnelli. I love her look from the Cabaret days and I love her voice, talking and singing. She was so ahead of her time and like no other. No one else looked like her, she was so original. She is fabulous and her music makes me feel so happy. She is so talented! She is a style icon. This cd is a great collection.

Brava, Liza!

I came to this in search of "Come Saturday Morning" (from Liza's film "The Sterile Cuckoo") and stayed for the rest of the album. I was reminded of why I fell heart over heels for her 35 years ago: her naked vulnerability and the power of her personality. This exquisite set is proof that she deserves to be regarded in the same category as Edith Piaf and her own mother.
