I think this is truly a solid and under rated effort. It is very listenable with the exception of "Pass Me By". The album starts out very strong: "Emily", "Here's to the Losers", "Dear Heart", "Come Blow your Horn" are great tunes - the Nelson Riddle arrangements are all superior. The album takes a serious dip with "Pass Me By", a number that sounds like it would be perfectly suited for a 1960s Rankin/Bass stop-animation classic (it is actually from a 1964 Cary Grant romantic-comedy "Father Goose" - which, along with the backgound vocals, explains the extremely dated sound). I have to make a special note of "Then Suddenly Love"... it is one of my all-time favorite tunes. It swings with fine horn arrangements, jazzy drum riffs and an extremely buoyant performance by Sinatra. I don't know many people who know the song, but anyone I've played it for thinks it is a blast and a "must-have"... you can't help but dance, snap your fingers, or tap your toes to it. Silly lyrics? I don't listen to Frank for his messages - this song is fun, romantic and joyous... everything being in love should be. Why this song isn't considered a standard is beyond me.
