What else but five stars for the Queen of POP!!,
This review is from: Love Songs (Audio CD)
I just got this cd yesterday, and I have listened to the entire thing at least 10 times!! Great mixture of 60's and 70's songs from the great vocalist. Many fans will find a few surprises from the 70's cuts (from the Warner years). Dionne work doing this time had a little more R&B flavor: in particular is the final cut "I Didn't Mean To Love You", Dionne shows a raw, emotional vocal style. Unlike much of her studio work which is technical and flawless in contect. If one has seen her live, you know that at times the elegant vocalist will let loose at some point in the show, allowing her strong gospel voice to blow the roof off of the building. Very few times has she ever let go in the studio like this, well Dionne lets loose on "I Didn't..." tearing at every hair on your body, protraying a women who is at the end of her rope in a relation and can not take it anymore, great stuff indeed!! Other great cuts are "Sure Thing", "Whoever you are I love you" , and the classic "I Say A Little Prayer" pure Dionne, but with a lots of new twists. Dionne again shows that she can master any style of music if given the opportunity. Great Surpise indeed!!! Strong buy recommendation...trust me you will love it!!!!! P.S. I love reading the linear notes by David Nathan, he is always informative...he is a great soul man!
