OK, like Walt Whitman I contradict myself. For over five years I’ve railed against soft-rock Jewish music with good reason. So I ought to hate this pop confection of standard Shabbat music performed by Sameach stalwarts Avraham Solomon and Kol Zimra with the BaRock Orchestra, nu? In fact, it’s a set with considerable charm. Solomon sings soulfully — in every sense of that word — and Kol Zimra sounds like The Association on one of their good days. English-language material is flimsy at best but the rest is very pleasant listening indeed. Rating: 4 stars.We've noted some other reviews by Robinson here.
