Album Review

This album requires patience and attentiveness. At first exposure, it seems smooth and melodic, though somewhat staid. Since the album is at least pleasant and non-offensive — but not too much more — it should get a rating somewhere in the range of "OK," right? Wrong! Pat Boone Sings Irving Berlin is unquestionably one of Boone's two top albums in terms of durability.

Enough said?

It's fitting that his achievements rank...
