Unforgettable: With Love

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Alex Henderson
A major change of direction for Natalie Cole, Unforgettable found the singer abandoning the type of R&B/pop she'd been recording since 1975 in favor of jazz-influenced pre-rock pop along the lines of Nat King Cole's music. It was a surprising risk that paid off handsomely -- both commercially and artistically. Naysayers who thought that so radical a change would be commercial suicide were proven wrong when the outstanding Unforgettable sold a shocking five million units. Quite clearly, this was an album Cole was dying to make. Paying tribute to her late father on "Mona Lisa," "Nature Boy," "Route 66," and other gems that had been major hits for him in the 1940s and ...

It was a surprising risk that paid off handsomely -- both commercially and artistically.

Quite clearly, this was an album Cole was dying to make. Paying tribute to her late father on "Mona Lisa," "Nature Boy," "Route 66," and other gems that had been major hits for him in the 1940s and early '50s, the 41-year-old Cole sounds more inspired than she had in well over a decade. On the title song, overdubbing was used to make it sound as though she were singing a duet with her father -- dishonest perhaps, but certainly enjoyable. Thankfully, standards and pre-rock pop turned out to be a primary direction for Cole, who was a baby when the title song became a hit for her father in 1951.

    Beautiful vocals, great old favorites.

    This is a very good album, got to know some of the songs better. Some were old favorites, all were done very well.

    Natilie Cole

    I was introduced to Natilie Cole at a very young age and she is one of my favorite artist, I have listened to her since I was little and I still love her music. Her songs helped me fall asleep at night and to make the long car rides much more enjoyable. I think her music is both inspiring and fun, her songs are short and sweet and very catchy. Some of my favoirite songs are smile, orange colored sky and of coarse Unforgetable. I dont think I will ever stop liking and listening to her music. I have every cd that she has made and I also like Nat King Cole as well they both have the same song writting style and how natilie uses her fathers songs and made them more of her own. The cd makes me see how her and her father had a strong bond and that shows through the songs and lyrics on the cd. I will always love natilie Cole and I dont think I will ever stop listening to it.
