Picks and Pans Review: What the World Needs Now Is Love
The title song of this album is not the great Burt Bacharach/Hal David pop tune that Dionne Warwick made famous. This "What the World Needs" was written by Brett James and Holly Lamar and, like the rest of this regrettable album, it is mundane. "Burning Love," however, is indeed a new version of the Dennis Linde tune that was a signature song for Elvis Presley, and including it was the best idea Wynonna and coproducer Dan Huff had for this 14-track set. That song alone allows her to sound energetic and soulful rather than derivative and pretentious. "Sometimes I Feel Like Elvis" seems particularly uninspired (though Wynonna does sound vaguely like the King). Elsewhere she seems to be channeling Cher ("It's Only Love") and Mariah Carey ("It All Comes Down to Love"). Wynonna's mom and former singing partner, Naomi Judd, does brighten things up a bit on the duet "Flies on the Butter (You Can't Go Home Again)," lending the self-consciously rootsy tune some much-needed credibility.
BOTTOM LINE: Woeful Wynonna
