A Quiet Thing

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Dave Nathan
Even before you put the CD in the player, it's clear that this album is being promoted as one for lovers, existing and to be. Kirsten Benton and Stan Chandler are both young and attractive and are seen in chummy photographs in the liner notes. Both are veteran performers with significant stage and TV credits to their name. The play list is varied, with tunes by some of the best writers of the musical stage as well as tunes by top pop writers such as John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Billy Joel, and others. The concept of a sweetheart's album is accentuated by vocal delivery, usually soft and wistful but often with a sense of urgency. The instrumental accompaniment is dominated ...

All Music Guide - Dave Nathan
Even before you put the CD in the player, it's clear that this album is being promoted as one for lovers, existing and to be. Kirsten Benton and Stan Chandler are both young and attractive and are seen in chummy photographs in the liner notes. Both are veteran performers with significant stage and TV credits to their name. The play list is varied, with tunes by some of the best writers of the musical stage as well as tunes by top pop writers such as John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Billy Joel, and others. The concept of a sweetheart's album is accentuated by vocal delivery, usually soft and wistful but often with a sense of urgency. The instrumental accompaniment is dominated by the piano of Scott Harlan. And therein lies a problem. These two are fine singers -- expressive and on-key -- and they sing the lyrics with clarity and go great together. But sometimes it's hard to hear them over Harlan's piano, making a feeling of intimacy difficult. This isn't the fault of the performers, but the technicians responsible for producing the album. Fortunately these are balanced by cuts where the piano is sufficiently modulated so as not to detract from the singers. One of these is a medley of the McCartney/Lennon compositions "I Will" and "Maybe I'm Amazed." But it's on the medley of "Waiting for the Light to Shine"/"Going Home" where these two pull out all the stops with their gospel-like delivery to win the battle with the piano. Other attractive tracks are Chandler's persuasively romantic "If I'm Lucky" and a lilting "Hey There" by Benton. But it's unfortunate that the full effects of these two talents cannot be enjoyed because not enough attention was paid to the technical stuff.
