Babs is see­ing red. Or­ange ac­tu­ally. She’s lend­ing her voice to the cho­rus of those pesky Leftie Hol­ly­wood types com­plain­ing about that god­for­saken re­al­ity TV pres­i­dent. Luck­ily, it’s THAT voice. At 76 she has not gone softly, even on a pointed mash-up of Imag­ine and What a Won­der­ful World. You could lis­ten to this as an al­bum of heart­break, anger and de­spair sung with pas­sion and emo­tion, or as the world’s most pol­ished protest al­bum. Babs ain’t takin’ it. /CAMERON ADAMS
