Stop Trying So Hard. Gaga presents a cavalcade of costumes, vocal mannerisms, and dark wigs. Tony B, held by iron-clad instrumental arrangements, hits his notes. Everything here is constructed instead of felt. These songs need a little sloppy, jangly happiness to work. Work: the album feels like work.
VERY GOOD 2014 primarily duet album by Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga. 11 cuts over about 35 minutes.
Some people want to dismiss her because of her flamboyant visual stage persona, etc. but she IS a very talented singer and the album made it to No. 1 in US and also won a Grammy.
Glad I gave it a listen - try it!
Anybody who thinks Gaga can't sing should listen to this disc; or watch her Super Bowl 50 performance. She brings Bennett's tired voice up. Great combo.
An interesting duets concept. Tony Bennett's been singing this music most of his life, though at this point his voice isn't what it was. Lady Gaga, whose regular music style is very different, turns out to be well suited to singing the standards.
This was a surprise. Lady Gaga really does hold the standards well...Tony Bennett not so much anymore.
Some good songs. Lady GaGa saves it. Tony Bennett struggles on a couple of songs, especially his solo. A bit disappointing.
