Songs Dull but good voice
Babs sounds a lot better on this album than her last, despite not quite up to the clarity of a few years back she’s still good to listen to. The songs on Walls are a little disappointing,all rather slow and not upbeat. Can’t see myself singing along to any of them never the less I found it moderately enjoyable.
.... Disappointed by Walls ....
I gave a three star review as follows, however, somehow the star rating has been increased to a false five. Not impressed Apple!
Sorry Barbara, but even long-standing fans can be disappointed by this album. With the exception of “Don’t lie to me”, I could quite happily leave the remaining songs out of my Playlist.
That said, one cannot ignore the superb orchestration, voice quality and sound production of this album. My advice would be to listen to the whole album before committing to buy ....
Political or not - this is beautifully done.
The production is bang up to date and Lady Barbra proves you don't need to prostitute talent and class for the music industry's churning mentality. That, and of course politically charged and angeredm, she colours the scene with every note and expression. If many had the talent, fairness and strength of mind this woman has, we might not be in the less we are, but then what it must be like to be this haunted with thoughts and propositions...... much of which are beautifully painted in this album! And those pipes....... jeez!
Drop the political nonsense
3 stars for her voice she has it still, but politics needs to stay out of her songs...Unless she is going to be critical of others as well as what’s fashionable. Even others closer to home for her than Trump!
Barbra Streisand Walls
By Nige southbeach
I’m blown away by Streisand’s vocals on this album!
Well worth buying!
Follower for many many years, disappointed that she has brought political bias into her music.. however sometimes in life WE should remember that we have to be “cruel to be kind”, just to save ourselves.. remember 100 years ago we lost so many young men in the world, a thought for those who fought for our FREEDOMS, not to relinquish it through stupidity..
Barbra on top again
This album is so powerful and amazing. Her voice has matured with age to a beautiful mellowness . The tracks are extremely powerful especially Don’t lie to me. And just in time for my birthday 🤗.
Just amazing !
She sound so original fresh and it truly is the best new work in a long time
A message for right now! Wonderful.

A message for right now! Wonderful songs.
Fed up with Trump’s lies. I miss the caring, compassionate, free, liberal, open arms America. This will pass. There is a brighter future.
Thank you Barbra for music that means so much right now. We need hope, love and your music!
