This Kind of Love (Hear)

Her voice is huskier, veined with the fine lines of age, but that only enhances the sultry sound of the Vineyard's favorite songbird, the still-too-sexy-for-her-shirt Carly Simon. The original songs on "This Kind of Love" are a mishmash of styles: poppy, jazzy, or seasoned with a dash of Brazilian Tropicana. Thirty-six years after her breakthrough "No Secrets," Simon is still exploring the vicissitudes of togetherness.
