    Welcome Back Carly

    This is Carly's best CD in a long time. The writing, the performance, the arrangements, the variety -- all bring out a great musical delivery.

    This CD is GREAT with the exception of track 3, this song should be given to a Hip Hop/Rapper, it was a total waste of a beautiful voice. Was it added to fill a gap ?

    New classics from a great

    This is the best CD I have bought in years. Plenty of great songs, a beautiful voice, and great arrangements. One tends to forget quite easily how wonderful it can be to listen to truly gorgeous melodies, sung with gusto and intelligence. This is a must.

    Cool Class from a Classic

    This legendary singer-song writer remains a classic for generations past, present and future, and this new release is consistent with that reputation. The mix is amazing: there is a song for just about everyone out there. I can't imagine anyone being disappointed accept to say it'll be hard to agree on which their favorite is. There's also clearly a little ode to Bossa Nova "maybe she's hip to the 50th anniversary of Bossa's birth this year"--"This Kind of Love", "Island " (Ben Taylor), "Hola Soleil","When We’re Together" (Sally Taylor) ,"Sangre Dolce" all have a distinct Bossa/Samba feel--gracefully not over done but rather true to both the artist as well as the genre. The eclectic mix from hip-hop/rap-like "People Say a Lot", to an epic "Last Samba" and the ballad "Too Soon to Say Goodbye" all are, again, an array of genres that very few artists could successfully pull off. "How can you ever forget" a David Saw very Brit-feeling creation is a very catchy less than 3 minute package of a melody you can't forget at all. This whole album has a feel of something really outstanding, some of the best new songs Ms Simon's written in years--which is saying something for an Oscar/Golden Globe/Multi- Grammy platinum artist that's part of the rare few that have remained at the top for almost 40 years.
