What's here is really good, but......,
This review is from: Reba Duets (Audio CD)
Reba's latest album, "Duets" is one of the best duet albums I've heard. Except for a few minor setbacks, it's an exceptional CD. The album has both country duets ("Every Other Weekend" with Kenny Chesney - the best song of the album) and more adult contemporary-leaning duets ("Because of You" with Kelly Clarkson). Other highlights include "Faith In Love" with Rascal Flatts, "Sleeping With The Telephone" with Faith Hill, "She Can't Save Him" with Trisha Yearwood and "Break Each Other's Hearts Again" with Don Henley. The two tracks I really didn't care for were "The Only Promise That Remains" with Justin Timberlake (who barely sings on the song) and "Because of You" with Kelly Clarkson, probably because country radio has overplayed it so much. Carole King surprisingly fits in nicely on the CD with "Everyday People", despite the fact that she and Reba have such different and distinct voices. The only other drawback to this fine album is it's length. It's much too short. I would have loved to have heard duets with singers like Tim McGraw, Keith Urban, Carrie Underwood, Martina McBride, Brad Paisley, Dolly Parton or even Bon Jovi. Maybe she'll do another duets album.
