What’s most striking about this album is the patriotism it evokes. You don’t have to be a staunch democrat (or even liberal) to appreciate the message that Ms. Streisand sends through each song. She has somehow managed to capture the range of emotions that I — as a proud and patriotic American — have felt over the last 20 odd months. It’s not just about rage ("Don’t Lie to Me"), it’s about hope (“Imagine”), redemption ("The Rain Will Fall”), and the American spirit (“Lady Liberty”). Two other things standout from this album: (1) HER VOICE; and (2) the eclectic sound of the songs. It would obviously be criminal to review a Streisand album without commenting on (or, more accurately, fawning over) the sheer strength and quality of this woman’s voice. I’m not sure what elixir of youth she drinks from but I am sure that the power and clarity of her voice is staggering. The songs also have a nice diversity of sound to them. “What’s On My Mind” has almost a latin/arabian feel to it while “The Rain Will Fall” and “Don’t Lie to Me” have a pop feel. Streisand rounds out the album with a haunting version of “Happy Days” which just seeps into your soul. It must get exhausting to have more talent in your pinky nail than most people have in their entire bodies — but hats off to Ms. Streisand for not resting on her well-earned laurels and putting out something that is not only entertaining but also invigorating. Only one word left to say to her: ENCORE.

Pardon the long review, but there's SO much to RAVE about! My first intention was to pick up my copy of this CD, and spend the night playing this PRECIOUS GEM in the comfort of my home, but I just couldn't wait! I tore that cellophane off so fast, & to say it was LOVE at first sight and sound, is the understatement of the century! To add to the THRILL & anticipation of hearing this MASTERPIECE, I was COMPELLED to dive into the accompanying booklet first, & completely DEVOUR the GORGEOUS pictures & incredible words. I was FLOORED from that moment on! The depth of Barbra's UNEQUALLED intelligence, & her BEAUTIFUL, BEAUTIFUL heart are just ASTOUNDING to me, & as many times as I see it displayed over the years in EVERYTHING this incredible woman does, she STILL floors me EVERY time! I'm SO glad I DID read her beautiful words before hearing the songs because it made each lyric THAT much MORE special! WOW! (.... and a HUGE shout out to all of the GENIUS musicians & songwriters who collaborated with Barbra on this INCREDIBLE MASTERPIECE!) So... when I attempted to drive home the LONG way, (so I could play this PRECIOUS GEM over & over); the second it started playing, I stopped dead in my tracks! I was SO taken aback, I had to pull over into a parking lot & take it all in! I LITERALLY couldn't move! The INCREDIBLE, INTENSE, PURE JOY that you feel when listening to this album is OVERWHELMING! How can I even BEGIN to convey how my heart is EXPLODING right now! I literally feel my insides melting with her every note! Barbra's voice is as SO PHENOMENAL and even though that's nothing new, the PASSION, & HEART behind every note is just an incredible thing of beauty! I can't really decide on a favorite track. They're ALL AMAZING, & there are some WONDERFUL surprises on the songs we are familiar with. "What the World Needs Now" BLEW me AWAY, & "Happy Days" .... OMG! The album starts off with the beautiful music of "What's On My Mind" & sets the meaningful tone for this phenomenal "Barbra Experience"! I was drawn in, & mesmerized from that second on! Then comes "You Lied to Me", the song that has been inside my head ever since it's debut. It's the first song in my head the second I wake up, & the last song in my head at night, (.... and just about every song in between allowing room for "Imagine/What a Wonderful World"!) The title song "Walls" is equally compelling, moving, and beautiful .....WOW! Speaking of BEAUTIFUL, "Better Angels" made me cry (& typing this now brings the tears to my eyes again) Just MAGNIFICENT! ...... and how do you even begin to describe the beauty of "Lady Liberty"! That was one of the songs that I was most looking forward to because knowing how much Barbra loves The Statue of Liberty & all it stands for, I just KNEW that it would be EXTRA SPECIAL, & believe me, it IS! OK, fair warning ...brace yourself for "The Rain Will Fall" HOLY MOLY! This will be in your head for a LONG time and you will LOVE it! I'm SO ADDICTED! Then there's "Love's Never Wrong", another song that I couldn't wait to hear because Steve Dorff is one of my FAVORITE song writers & Steve, you've done it AGAIN. another work of art that we will all TREASURE! ... & wait 'til you hear "Take Care of This House"! Another HEARTSTOPPER! Barbra, I wish I could put music to what's on MY mindI It would be ALL about YOU, & your MAGNIFICENCE, & it would be a BEAUTIFUL, BEAUTIFUL symphony! I couldn't be PROUDER or LOVE you MORE!
