Music Review: Linda Eder "Now" Nostalgic Romance

New music releases for March include the latest release from Linda Eder titled "Now". The new album can be described as easy listening and retro 60's Broadway musical. Linda reunites with a former musical partner Frank Wildhorn, who is the main songwriter and composer on her latest album "Now".

The mood and theme of Now is 1960's musical complete with the big band sound and nostalgia. Eder's vocal style on this album are very similar to Barbara Streisand, and the style of music just adds to that notion. The songs that Wildhorn has written back up and solidify the style of the album, with its throw back to 60's pop, with string orchestrated standards. Ironically the album's title "Now" does not reflect the actual time period of the music, but does give the indication that it's release is  current.

The style of Linda Eder's album is hopelessly romantic and lush mood music which gives it a romance themed CD.  Like all easy listening music, you could enjoy a glass of wine and listen to the whole album in its entirety, with a loved one of course.

Title Tracks:

  1. Not Gonna Fall This time
  2. No Finer Man
  3. Ordinary People
  4. The Heart of the Night
  5. What Did You See in the Stars
  6. Now
  7. The Mad Hatter (From Wonderland)
  8. A Woman In His Arms
  9. Good bye
  10. What's Never Been Done Before
  11. More Than Heaven
  12. Living In The Shadows

Overall a great album to listen to that transforms you to the romantic and nostalgic feelings of love, love and lost and reunion. Linda Eder covers all the emotion with her album "Now"

This CD is one of Linda's finest to date. It's magical when she and Frank do a project together. This is what the fans have been waiting for. Linda at her best.

THE MAGIC IS BACK!! Linda and Frank together is what music is all about. This cd exceeds our expectations, and Linda's performances are better than ever. It's what her voice was born to do. I will disagree with the reviewer on one point though. The music itself may be in the Streisand style, but I think Linda sounds like no other on this cd. It's the glorious voice of Linda Eder....and that's MORE than enough!

I like you review, and love Linda Eder. Nice comment which does describe the CD well. "Nostalgic Romance" could be a title for an album. Thanks for the review.
