European import Released in 1970, Watertown is a lost masterpiece & turning point for Frank Sinatra: a concept album written by Bob Gaudio & Jake Holmes. It has gone through a re-evaluation in recent years & is now considered one of Sinatra's finest recordings. Producer Charles Calello arranged musical backdrops that conveyed the despair of the lyrics. Weaving together prominent electric guitars, keyboards, drum kits, and light strings, Calello uses pop/rock instrumentation and production techniques, but that doesn't prevent Sinatra from warming to the material. In fact, he turns in a wonderful performance, drawing out every emotion from the lyrics, giving the album's character depth. -Stephen Thomas Erlewine, AllMusic.com, 4.5/5 stars
