Coulda Been a Five
October 1, 2019
There's a lot to like in "For the Girls." The CD includes a great array of romantic songs with memorable melodies that intermingle poignant, clever and passionate lyrics. Musicians are seasoned pros who all contribute top performances. Arrangements are innovative and should grab your interest and attention. Kristin Chenoweth's voice and delivery couldn't be better. She channels Judy Garland perfectly on "The Man That Got Away," without infringing on Garland's classic rendition.
However, producers seem to have taken themselves a little too seriously by not including one or two female/male duets from which there are plenty to choose. "I Got You Babe" is one example. "All I ask of You" and "People Will Say We're in Love" are two more. Also, "Girls" sometimes lacks the crystal clear sound of Kristen's previous album, The Art of Elegance."
Over all, this is a very entertaining CD with lots of talented people and production qualities to appreciate.
