Conclusion

Pro-social Content

Old-fashioned romance makes a comeback on "I've Got the World on a String," "Wonderful Tonight," "Comin' Home Baby," "The Best Is Yet to Come" and "Everything" ("Whatever comes our way, we'll see it through/ 'Cause you know that's what our love can do"). The crooner pledges his support to a woman feeling "Lost" ("You are not alone/I'm there with you") and apologizes to someone he neglected, asking for another chance ("Always on My Mind").

Objectionable Content

That includes playing doctor, being her lover and "howling like a dog in heat." He pressures an Italian beauty to kiss and embrace him or he'll move on to someone else ("It Had Better Be Tonight"). After insisting life won't beat him, a man confesses that he'll curl up and die before long ("That's Life"). "The Best Is Yet to Come" anticipates drinking deeply from the cup of life, but relies on an alcohol metaphor. "Me and Mrs. Jones" chronicles an illicit affair ("We both know that it's wrong, but it's much too strong").

Summary Advisory

Silky smooth. Romantically upbeat. Great musicianship. Unfortunately, this generation's answer to Frank Sinatra and Harry Connick Jr. throws in a few classics featuring Irresponsible pursuits of sex.
