Level of familiarity before listening
I listened to The Best Of Frank Sinatra a few months ago and didn’t really like it; that’s the only time in my life that I ever intentionally listened to his music.
What I expected
Same as before, I guess: smooth, jazzy vocals for my grandparents’ and great-grandparents’ generations. But maybe I’ll find some songs on this one that I enjoy?
What it was actually like
I actually recognized a couple of songs on this Frank Sinatra compilation, starting with Strangers in the Night, which wasn’t terrible.
It Was a Very Good Year was another song that I knew, because it’s indelibly seared into my memory from the opening montage of the fist episode of the second season of The Sopranos, which is available to watch on Youtube.
This Town was all right, but the background vocals on Softly, as I Leave You were horrible and sounded like a choir or something. Forget Domani was probably the worst song and sounded extremely gimmicky.
3/5: interesting, but not for me
