by Barbra StreisandBarbra Streisand




Barbra Streisand's first album of contemporary material in four years was a typical '80s adult contemporary superstar release, each track written and produced as a potential "power ballad" single by an extensive team of other performers, in this case including Richard Perry, Kim Carnes, Maurice White of Earth, Wind & Fire, Jim Steinman, Albhy Galuten (the Bee Gees' producer), Richard Baskin, Diane Warren, John Mellencamp, and Streisand herself. Streisand proved capable of handling everything from White's space-age R&B to Steinman's melodramatic overproduction. (He was the man who brought you Meat Loaf.) But as usually happens with such big budget efforts, the album lacked consistency, and as Columbia tried to pull several singles off it without notable success, it sold only to Streisand's million-member base audience.

Emotion is the most "Adult Contemporary" album of Barbra. The best tracks are "Emotion", "Make no mistake, he's mine" and "Letf In The Dark"(The Three Singles Of The Album)."Emotion" is a pop song, and the other two are "Dramatic Love Songs". "Left in The Dark" remembers "Total Eclipse Of The Heart" (Jim Steinman, wrote both songs).
