Avec ce grand classique, Frank Sinatra atteint des sommets. C’est l’album préféré par beaucoup, à juste titre. Toutes les chansons sont à l’époque, ou sont devenues des standards sur le thème de la solitude. Pour toute une génération d’anglo-saxons, chacune lui rappelle un moment de sa vie. Excepté un bon « best of », voici le disque du monsieur qu’il faut posséder sans aucun doute possible. Arrangements signés Nelson Riddle. « Angel Eyes » : «…pardonne-moi si…je disparais ».

- Tempi (très) lents en effet, comme le précise le premier commentaire, où l'orchestre dirigé par Nelson Riddle est tout entier au service de la voix de Sinatra - celle-ci portée par lui, d'une sûreté qui fait oublier la technique au profit des paroles chantées.
- Importance des thèmes abordés, autour de l'amour déçu (la rupture, la solitude) à travers la reprise d'impérissables standards, tels "What's New", "Spring Is Here" ou "Where or When". Là, Sinatra fait preuve d'une grande sensibilité, et son interprétation émeut au plus haut point. Comment ne pas fondre en larmes quand il chante l'adieu d'un homme à celle qu'il a aimé ("Goodbye") ?
Simplicité des paroles, vérité des idées qui s'y trouvent, force du chant : tout l'art de Sinatra.
Réécoutons pour la mille et unième fois "Willow weep for me" avant que la nuit ne finisse...
De ce disque, Sinatra dira lui-même "à ne vendre que sur ordonnance, et à consommer avec prudence..."
Ce disque prend aux tripes, à l'opposé des "standards" guillerets qu'on lui connaît. A posséder absolument

It is totally fitting, therefore, that "Only the Lonely" has his best saloon song, "One for My Baby (And One More for the Road)," by Harold Arlen and Johnny Mercer. The unforgettable opening line establishes the melancholy mood ("It's quarter to three, There's no one in the place except you and me") as Sinatra sings to the bartender his tale of woe. Someone described this song as being the one that Humphrey Bogart would have been singing if "Casablanca" had been made into a musical the way Sintara was in "High Society," the musical based on "The Philadelphia Story," while he drowns his sorrows. The other great torch song on the album is "Angle Eyes," with superb vocals offset by subdued orchestration. The title song, specifically written for Sinatra, starts off the album and establishes the perfect mood, and "Guess I'll Hang My Tears Out to Dry" completes the quartet of four classic songs on this album.
The remastered CD offers up two more songs from this period, "Sleep Warm" and "Where or When," but this was already an essential Sinatra album without those additions and I have to offer a minor complaint that with the addition of that pair of tracks the album does not end as it should, with "One For My Baby." It might not be his greatest album, but it absolutely has to be on the first hand you use when you start naming what should be on that list. "Only the Lonely" is the ultimate late night Sinatra album, to be listened to with the lights down low as you wallow in the depths of despair.
I have several versions of this CD and this version is BY FAR the best. MFSL somehow got their hands on the mono version of this album and made one of the best sounding CDs in my collection.
While many people are saying to themselves "Mono? Are you serious?" My answer is "YES"! Back in the days when this album was recorded, Capital Records simply mastered the technique of capturing a mono recording. However, stereo was an afterthought. The studio spent much more time with the mono recording and in this case, the album is better in that format.
I know $30 is a ridiculous amount to pay for a CD. However, this is one of the greatest albums in Sinatra's career and this is the best digital version of the album. If you are a fan of this classic album (if you aren't, you should be) you owe it to yourself to buy this version.
I'm a fan of Sinatra singing swing, preferably with the Count Basie Orchestra, but the orchestrations here are perfect for a set list of melancholy pieces. As previous reveiewers have said "One for my Baby" is the classic track, amongst an album full of classic tracks.
I enjoy all sorts of music from Bach, Coltrane to Amy Winehouse, but regardless of genre this is an essential recording for any collection.
Some of my favourite all-time Sinatra tracks are on this baby such as "One For My Baby", "Ebb Tide", "Spring is Here" and "Guess I'll Hang My Tears Out To Dry" but as a true concept album should be all the tracks here are good and stick to the theme of loneliness and lamenting about it. This is not only one of Sinatra's best works but it certainly ranks among the best ever albums of all time. No fillers here and as is with the case with any classic album this should be heard in its entirety at one sitting to appreciate its true greatness.
Anyone who has ever experienced loneliness and the despair that accompanies it will totally relate to this album and listening to Frank croon about it here provides a great therapeutic effect knowing that even the great Sinatra has been there and made it through.
Great mlps design, great sound quality and great content makes this a no-brainer recommendation.
Very highly recommended!
Many great songs are performed well by various singers, and sometimes a singer makes a song his own, such that nobody else's version really counts. As far as I'm concerned, Sinatra did that with every song on this album, which is quite something considering the winners on this disc. If you have this "Blues in the Night," don't even bother to listen to any other version.
But "Only the Lonely" hardly needs my recommendation. It has rightfully been praised since its release, and I suspect that people will be listening to it "ages and ages hence." So how about this recording, and the mono sound? In short, the sound is superb, and the fact that it is mono becomes insignificant right away. You won't even notice.
This Mobile Fidelity version blows away the first (1987) CD incarnation and the later 1998 US Capitol mastering, which suffered from a lot of obvious tinkering, apparently to eliminate tape hiss (as if anybody who knows this recording would care about barely audible hiss). If you can find it, the best stereo mastering is the 1998 UK version, which rivals the MF in terms of clarity and natural sound. It was in the UK "Capitol Years" collection, but I don't know whether it was ever available singly.
One last note. I do not miss "Sleep Warm" or "Where or When." They were not on the original album, they're of a genre different from that of the other 12, and the album ends much better with "One for My Baby."
