    Barbara hits the single best note ever in the history of music in the crescendo of “Somewhere.” It sends tingles down my spine. Wow!
  • Favorite Barbra album

    These songs remind me of childhood! I practically wore out the cassette tape listening to Somewhere over and over. Love it!!!

    This album came out around my 16th birthday and I remember asking for it for christmas. I sang along and learned every line. The arrangements are classic barbra and do scream "late 80s', but it also one of the last albums where ms. Streisand really attacked high notes with that thrilling belt voice of hers. listen and enjoy.

    I too noticed this album because "Somewhere" was being played all over the radio. The first time I heard it, I was visiting the San Francisco Bay Area from Nebraska. An FM station played "Somewhere" when I was sweeping around a big curve on I-80, and before the song had finished, I was looking toward the Golden Gate Bridge across the bay from Berkeley. A nice way to remember the song. Credit goes to whoever made the decision finally to let iTunes customers purchase track 6, the "I Have Dreamed" medley, as a regular purchase. For a long time, this song was Album Only. It's my favorite, and you can hear so easily Barbra's attention to detail.

    When this cd (lp) was released in 1985 there was a lot of press and a lot of inside looks into the studio during the recording of this landmark album. Barbra back to Broadway, which will be the title of her 1993 follow-up. All the songs are just beautiful if a bit dated due to the then-contemporary sound of synthesizers. Barbra's vocal delivery convinces the listener this is what she loves to sing. The actors conversing about the damage to her career if she wanted to do this album was adapted from actual concerns from the suits at Columbia. This cd shot to #1 and Barbra has achieved artistic vindication. Standout cuts are track #2, track #8, and the big hit from this cd, track #12. Track #7, "Adelaide's Lament," appears only on the cd configuration of this release, probably due to programming space and the fact vinyl was being slowly phased out. "Adelaide's Lament" sung with a Yiddish accent display's Barbra's off-beat sense of humor. This cd was remastered along with other landmark cd's in 2002 and the result is truly beautiful, it doesn't want to make you throw your ipod through a window.
  • Fantastic!

    I loved this Album so much that I think I wore out the Cassette Tape. This Music brings back great memories of the 1985 era!
  • Dated sound, but still great!

    Despite many of tracks on this album having a distinctive 80s synthesizer sound, it's still fun to listen to. Barbra's voice on some of the songs gives me goose bumps—my litmus test for a great album. If you’re a Barbra fan, you won’t be disappointed.
  • Barbra At Her Best!

    I originally bought this album on LP in 1986. The radio station at work played "Somewhere" constantly and I loved it, so I took a chance and bought the entire album. I always liked Streisand's voice and had taped some singles off the radio(God remember taping songs off the radio), but never ever bought her records. To make a long story short, I played this album to death and it has remained one of my favorite albums. The 1986 LP didn't have "Adelaide's Lament" on it, so it's a little odd for me to hear this song on the album, it breaks up the sequence for me since I'm so used to the '86 LP version, but a good song nontheless. Thirteen years later I bought the follow-up album "Back to Broadway" Not good as the original, BUT quite wonderful also! I recomend both albums.
