All Music Guide - William Ruhlmann
A concept album of sorts in the sense that each of the songs has something to do with water, Wet was the third of a trilogy of albums produced by Gary Klein in a soft rock vein increasingly set in the synth-pop style of the late '70s and early '80s. The concept allowed for a range of material, from old favorite Harold Arlen's "Come Rain or Come Shine" to an updated version of the old Bobby Darin hit "Splish Splash." The album's number one hit was "No More Tears Enough Is Enough," a disco duet with Donna Summer.

Yet there was enough variety on the album to make it an average Streisand outing.

    A ''Wet'' gem

    Once agian I dissagree with Mr Ruhl; to not love this album is to not like Streisand, because it is Pure Barbra. I agree it is reminiscent of ''The Way We Were'' album which makes it all the more enjoyable...Her vocal range here is astounding; she clearly loves these songs. An extremely successful outting with Michel Legrand and the Bergmans....highlights include ''on Rainy Afternoons'', ''After the rain'' and ''Wet''. ''Niagara''.....Infact, the entire album is a marvel.....One of her BEST. Trust me folks, ad this one to your Streisand collection....
