Relaxed and in control, Midler shakes her head at war and famine in the enigmatic hit ''From a Distance'' and tears you apart with ''Since You Stayed Here'' and ''He Was Too Good to Me.'' She doesn't wrap herself up in the emotion of a song the way she used to, melody be hanged. The sound of a bad girl moving gracefully into middle age, Lives received four Grammy nominations. B+




Stereo Review (1/91)

"Her first non-soundtrack album in nearly eight years...Midler returns to the kind of middle ground she inhabits best, a musical arena in which she can be free to be both emotional and campy without crossing the line into excessive sentimentality."
