Franklin's performances are mesmerizing and seem to embody the perfect balance between nuanced sensitivity and sheer powerhouse wailing. The combination of her unique magnetism and the quality of such songs as 'Think, ' 'I Never Loved A Man (The Way I Love You), ' and '(You Make Me Feel) Like A Natural Woman' is almost too good to be true. The album's only shortcoming is that there aren't more tracks to savor. A perfect introduction to this phenomenal singer
