While SUPERMAN will not go down as Babs' greatest release, it is a straight-ahead delivery of material done the Streisand way, with little deviation from her signature style. It is, in a word, consistent, which still puts it above many of her contemporaries. The record contains ballads, mid-tempo tunes and rockers, with first-rate production all around. "Superman" is a ready-for-airplay lead-off track, with a big arrangement. "Don't Believe What You Read" is a faster song with a country twang, showing that Barbra can explore other territories.
"Baby The Baby" is a slow, bluesy number with those golden vocal chords expressing heartfelt emotion. "My Heart Belongs To Me" was a number four smash and one of Barbra's greatest singles. "Love Comes From Unexpected Places" is a beautiful acoustic track. She even adds a jazz touch to Billy Joel's "New York State Of Mind." SUPERMAN will leave Streisand fans satisfied and make neophytes aware of her enormous talent.
