Pauline Kael once took note of some romantic musical numbers in a Marx Brothers film that were intended, according to a movie executive, "for people to identify with." "What people?" she sensibly asked. One can only imagine what Kael might have to say about A Love Like Ours, a Barbra Streisand self-celebration disguised as a paean to her romance with hubby James Brolin (The Car). "When love like ours arrives, we guard it with our lives," Streisand emotes on the disc's near-title track, unavoidably bringing to mind an early South Park episode's battle against a monster-robot version of the superstar. Draped in gauzy arrangements and the occasional "soulful" (her word) Kenny G sax solo, Streisand even manages to make a few truly great songs ("The Music That Makes Me Dance," "Isn't It a Pity?") sound overbearing in this context. --Rickey Wright
It Must Be BARBRA

(4 out of 5 stars)
"Smooth relaxing album, a bit boring, however!, Barbra's vocals never seemed more radiant then on this album. Full of love & inspired songs that refect new found love. I love this album because when listing to it, it takes everything away except for love, hope, faith, trust, happiness & etc of wonderful feelings. Even though I love Barbra, I gave it a four out of five because its not a risk taking album that Barbra use to make in the 60s, 70s-the mid 80s.
"Happiness makes you want to sing. You know all those corny things they say in every love song you've ever heard?, well, they're true!. Love is what life is all about. Love IS the answer. I hope this album inspires your own loving spirit... and may you be blessed with something as special as a love like ours". - Barbra"
