What Matters Most review - Barbra Streisand

Posted on

Barbra Streisand | 'MATTERS' OF THE HEART Belting out tearjerkers (sometimes in Portuguese), Streisand is bringing diva back

What Matters Most

Current Status:
In Season
Barbra Streisand

We gave it a B+

Streisand dialed down the diva ‘tude for 2009’s Love Is the Answer, a relatively restrained collaboration with jazz star Diana Krall that led to the legend’s first club date in decades. Here Babs goes bigger, singing the natural-fiber stuffing out of 10 dramatic tearjerkers by her old pals Alan and Marilyn Bergman (”The Way We Were,” ”You Don’t Bring Me Flowers”). On ”So Many Stars,” she even does a few bars in Portuguese, just because she can. B+
