Film Noir

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
For Carly Simon, Film Noir is a way to explore traditional pop classics. Using smoky saloon songs like "Ev'rytime We Say Goodbye" as a blueprint, Simon and producer Jimmy Webb create a seductive, intimate atmosphere. Simon's vocals aren't naturally suited to this material, but she acquits herself well, and the two duets -- one with Webb and one with John Travolta "Two Sleepy People" -- are charming additions to an ingratiating album.

    Sultry, sexy Carly!

    Carly's still got what it takes. Her voice is still strong and unique and she really puts her heart into these songs. I'll take her over Mariah or Whitney any day.
