Essential for me as I always like Frank from any period but being so familar with so much of his later material I always have a spot for his Reprise albums even with their hits and misses. Sometimes the misses are just as good in their own way. […]

There simply isn’t enough variety to sustain interest throughout the course of the short, ten-song album. Certain sections work well, particularly the Glen Campbell numbers, but there isn’t anything distinctive about the record. […]

“cycles” sees sinatra recast with a set of baroque folk songs with plenty of harpsichords and acoustic guitars to the fore . Don costas arrangements and production are superb throughout and sinatra sings very well too . […]
