Review

Think Sinatra is someone your crazy grandma and no-one actually listens to anymore? Shame on you! Frank Sinatra's heartfull sounds ring as true now as they did in 1955. A true master of mood indigo to use his own words. This album is a fair bit different to his other records, all 59 of them! Gone is the finger clicking goodness, replaced by a lone man with a broken heart. His soulful sadness lays itself bare all over this album. You can feel his loss as he tries to shrug off the loss of a loved one.
Pick this album up, put it on the record player, sit back and be transported back to 1955 :)

This also has a special place in history because it kicked off the album era. Long live the album era, with a swift death to the single!
