Manilow Sings Sinatra

Genre: Pop; Lead Performer: Barry Manilow; Producer (group): Arista

A few interesting song choices aside, Barry Manilow’s schmaltzy takes on a dozen Sinatra standards (plus two icky new originals) sound more like a monumental ego trip than a heartfelt tribute. Manilow is a sincere but hopelessly shallow interpreter on Manilow Sings Sinatra, lacking the subtlety and nuance that balanced the Chairman’s larger-than-life persona, and his one-dimensional readings mainly remind us what a singular talent Sinatra was.
