Top 10 Barbra Streisand Albums

Music Man
The list author says: "This list includes focusses on original albums but includes one "collection" of recordings for historic as well as entertainment value."
Back to Broadway
Back to Broadway
"Streisand at her best.  Strongly nuanced vocals, terrific song selection and marvelous orchestrations.  She does wonders with "As If We Never Said Goodbye" and "With One More Look"."
Guilty

"Her best contemporary album.  Barry Gibbs comes up with a strong collection of songs for her and does them proud.  You know the hits, but "Run Wild", "Promises" and "Life Story" surpass them."
The Way We Were
The Way We Were
"Culled from recordings Streisand had yet to release, this is nevertheless a very cohesive album.  "All in Love is Fair", "Being at War with Each Other" and "Something So Right" fit snugly into her stylizing but less face it, any album that has "The Way We Were" as the title song is going to be just fine."
The Broadway Album
The Broadway Album
"Slightly marred by the metallic instrumentalizing of the mid '80s, this is nevertheless a great Streisand offering.  "Somewhere" is a bit screechy but "Something's Coming" is marvelous and "Not While I' Around" and "Something Wonderful" are beautifully sung.  "Adelaide's Lament" is one of the most unusual things she's recorded."
People
People
"This is where Streisand hit her stride.  Full of marvelous ballads and rich singing, it culminates with the classic "People".  'Nuff said."

"An auspicious debut.  "A Taste of Honey" and "Soon It's Gonna Rain" make her sound like a seasoned pro and "Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf" shouldn't work but does.  "Happy Days..." were here again."
Second Barbra Streisand Album
Second Barbra Streisand Album
"Another early Streisand that's prime goods.  Best cuts: "Anywhere I Hang My Hat is Home" and "I Stayed Too Long at the Fair"."
Higher Ground
Higher Ground
"A bit lugubrious at times, this nevertheless has some very good material and Streisand was still in top form as a vocalist.  Skip "Tell Him", a ballad where Streisand and Celine Dion compete for the Best Screeching award."
Stoney End
Stoney End
"An early foray into contemporary pop, this collection benefitted from a great selection of songs.  "Stoney End" was the deserved hit, but "No Easy Way Down" is just as good.  There's not a clunker in the bunch, though."
Greatest Hits

"This has to be included in any comprensive top ten because it's not only quintessential Streisand but it includes takes that don't appear elsewhere.  A great intro to the artist."
