CD Reviews

Feinstein at his best!
(5 out of 5 stars)

"FOREVER is among my Top 10 CDs, though my collection has 100s --including most of Michael Feinstein's efforts. Michael's selections on this album range from pensive to romantic to swinging, but they feel right together. Check out his version of Van Morrison's "Moondance" and the lively "Sophisticated Swing", as well as his own composition: "Half of April". Makes a great listen paired with his ISN'T IT ROMANTIC."
My favorite of Michael's work

"OK, let's face it, Michael Feinstein isn't for everyone. Some people think he's too sappy, a weaker Frank Sinatra, and so on. That said, I think this album is for everyone. From his eloquent cover of Van Morrison's "Moondance" to his own "Half of April" each and every one of these songs is performed with heart and a gentle touch. This is very much unlike his "songbook" albums - where he takes one composer's work and does it to death - which is what generally comes to mind with Michael's work , here there is a more eclectic style that gives you a truer sense of the great range and talent he posesses."
I'm not a Michael Feinstein fan, but....

"I'm not a Michael Feinstein fan. I think the work he's done with the Gershwin catalogues is incredible but I've always found Feinstein to come off as sounding arrogant. Perhaps he isn't in real life, but that's how he brushes off on me.However, I'm able to put my personal prejudices aside to say that I really enjoy this particular album. No matter what your mood may be at any given time, there's something here for you. There's the beautiful soaring melody in "My Romance" and the dreamy "Soon". The mischevious "Moondance" is how I always thought this song should be performed. Add in the energetic "Too Marvelous For Words" and the thought provoking "What Ever Happened to Melody" and you've got a quite enjoyable collection.As another reviewer mentioned, this pairs very nicely with Feinstein's "Isn't It Romantic" compilation.So long as Mr. Feinstein continues to produce cds like this one, I'll continue to buy them. It doesn't mean I'll like Michael Feinstein, but I do like his album!"
