iTunes Review

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.

Barbra does it again!
What is this her 100,000th album? And it is wonderful! Mellow and smooth and mature! This is like her grown-up version of Simply Streisand, another beautiful album!
Love Is The Answer is a treasure!
The song selection is perfect! I've always wanted to hear her do a version of Smoke Gets In Your Eyes!
I discovered the song Where Do You Start a few years ago and have preformed and recorded it myself!
As a singer the songs I sing often come for the Streisand songbook! But for the first time I can say, "I did that one first!" haha even tho... Hers is better! But if it comes from Barbra it ALWAYS will be!

Another EXCELLENT achievement from the one and only!

Just perfect ... I love the Quartet version ... so pure ... Great idea!
Sit back ... relax ... and let the velvet voice of Barbra Streisand take you away.
THANK YOU Ms. Streisand for the many years of escaping into your beautiful voice and art.

All I can say is ...Wow@

This c.d is wonderful, from beginning to end. Barbras' voice sounds flawless, and the song selection is magnificent.. You will laugh, Cry and everything in between when you listen to this work of art..Move over Madonna and Mariah..This Diva has still got it!

Barbra Streisand's status as one of the most successful singers of her generation was remarkable not only because her popularity was achieved in the face of a dominant musical trend — rock & roll — which she did not follow, but also because she used her vocal skills as a mere stepping stone to other careers, as a stage and film actress and as a film director. Born in 1942 and raised in Brooklyn, New York, she struggled briefly as an actress and nightclub singer in New York during...
