Album Review

Like her or not, Carnie Wilson has had one heck of a ride during her two-decade career in the spotlight. Whether it's as a member of hippie-offspring adult contemporary group Wilson Phillips, talk-show host, or being one of the first celebrities to publicly admit to having dangerous, stomach-shrinking surgery, Wilson has had more than her fair share of scrutiny under the spotlight. So this change in pace, while unsurprising, is refreshingly free of any tabloid-friendly controversy. A Mother's Gift: Lullabies from the Heart is a 12-song session of gentle lullabies for children. Wilson sings many American pop standards such as "Over the Rainbow," "Love Me Tender," and "What a Wonderful World." There's also pleasant surprises with Wilson sharing the microphone with her legendary father Brian on "You Are So Beautiful," and singing what is arguably her Uncle Dennis Wilson's finest composition "Forever." And while the original meaning of "Forever" is co-opted by Wilson in a different context, it's still a quite enjoyable performance. Her original compositions dwindle in comparison to the covers, but it's still a pleasant disc that will lull your little ones to golden slumbers.

B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L

These are some very beautiful songs. "Forever" is personally one of my favorite Beach Boy lullabies. I once sang "Over the Rainbow" in my elementary school's chior, so I think Carnie was much better than we were. Carnie did a great job on the Elvis song "Love me Tender," really sweet. But my favorite out of all of these is the father-daughter duet on the Joe Cocker/Dennis Wilson song "You are so beautiful." Taylor Hicks did just as good on "American Idol." I hope someday when I have a kid, I'll still have my iPod so my child can enjoy Carnie.

Uniquely Soporific

It seems that each of these songs has its own charm. In particular, I like "You Are So Beautiful" and "A Mother's Prayer", but Carnie's lush voice is present throughout. It's sedative and addictive. Highly recommended.

Great work Carnie! Lots of Love In This Album.

Carnie Wilson has great talent as showcased on this album. It is great for those with kids because the songs are etheral and smooth. Many are lullibyes. The cover of Carl Wilson's "Heaven" is wonderful and so is the cover of "You are So Beautiful". What a loving tribute to her uncles. Just listen to Lola Sofia and you get a sense of what a talented songstress Carnie is. Keep up the great work. If you like Wilson Phillips, The Wilsons, Carl Wilson, Dennis Wilson, or the Beach Boys BUY THIS ALBUM!
