Moonlight Serenade (2005)

EW's GRADE
B-

Details Release Date: Jul 19, 2005; Lead Performance: Carly Simon; Genre: Rock

Compared with the general loveliness of Torch, Carly Simon's 1981 set of standards, this generic collection, Moonlight Serenade, a reunion with ''You're So Vain'' producer Richard Perry, disappoints. With the rubber-chicken supper-club stylings of the title track, a drowsily synthesized ''I Only Have Eyes for You,'' and a clumsy speed-up of Harry James' ''The More I See You,'' it's up to Simon's voice — with its shadings of Rosemary Clooney — to rescue the proceedings from disaster. It comes close.
