We gave it a C

What is it about Anne Murray? She’s so composed, so technically perfect, and so hermetically sealed. Twenty years ago, back in her ”Snowbird” and ”Danny’s Song” days, she embued her throaty alto with intense emotion, proving herself countrypolitan’s most reliable middle-of-the-road translator. Now in Yes I Do, with infrequent exceptions, such as this album’s title song, she’s just mired in MOR glop so complacent and bland that she actually saw fit to revive Air Supply’s drippy ”Even the Nights Are Better.” Murray sounds like she wouldn’t get excited even if a tarantula crawled up her skirt. What’s next, a new rendition of ”Feelings”? C
