Predicting the impact of this album, Clive Davis said, "Dinner parties all over the world will never be the same." Davis, currently Sony Music's Chief Creative Officer, isn't an industry legend for nothing. He's absolutely correct about the function of the album. While it may have a somewhat generic feel overall, this dainty dozen will serve as acceptable background music for many a social gathering. It doesn't reinvent the wheel, it merely provides slickly produced evergreens sung by an old pro.
