    Album Review- Tony Bennett Duets II: Positive Carrie Mention :)

    Nice review of the album & nice Carrie mention....obviously he was not a big fan before this song, but whatever. He likes her on this performance. lol

    Tony Bennett ‘Duets 2′ Music Review | Vivoscene

    The most successful works on the album are definitely the duets with the women (with the notable exception of Willie, mentioned above): witness the seductive back-and-forth with Faith Hill in “The Way You Look Tonight”, the unexpectedly decent Carrie Underwood in “It Had To Be You”, and the uncharacteristically restrained but still powerful closer from Mariah Carey in “When Do The Bells Ring For Me?’.

    Decent? It was one of the best tracks! Maybe he is thinking of SWSRN and not Carrie. He is not a country music fan. He is right about Tony singing best with women.

    Nice to read that the reviewer, Brian actually reconsidered his initial backhanded compliment of Carrie after reading a couple of positive comments about Carrie including the suggestion that Brian actually watch some of Carrie's youtube videos and get to know her work before judging her.

    I hope so cause that was actually pretty rude.
    Tony Bennet hand-picked these singers and you think she was going to be "unexpectedly decent"? What an incredibly ignorant thing to say. Not only was it well beyond decent. But was it "so" unexpected?? Like what did you expect. Her to sound like Crap???!!
    That was a full-on insult.
    And if I was close enough I would have taken a swing at him!

    I like you esp. your last sentence. It put a big smile on my face. We know Carrie is amazing.

    I love this one comment "thanks for the review! A question: Is this your first time reviwing a song that featured Carrie Underwood? I have never heard of this site until today, and I was just wondering." I believe that Brian got the message, lol.

    That's odd; none of the songs were "album only" for me.
