Released:
Label: Arista
After Manilow's 1950s covers disc became a surprise No.1 smash, he set about cherry-picking hits from every proceeding decade. Here, Barry takes on the era when alt rock, hair metal and hip-hop loomed large. While he sadly skips such interesting choices as "While Lines," "How Soon Is Now" and "Welcome To The Terrordome," Manilow does cover many of the decades biggest soft rock hits. Best written song? Cyndi Lauper's "Time After Time," though B.M. does shines brightest on "Island In the Stream" and "Careless Whisper."
