Appearing only seven months after A Star Is Born, Streisand Superman seemed to continue much of its rock-oriented feel, even including several songs that had been intended for the film. It was unusual in featuring all recently written songs, many first recorded here. Streisand co-wrote the rockish "Don't Believe What You Read," an attack on her negative press coverage, while Alan Gordon contributed both the disco-ish "I Found You Love" and the album's Top Ten single ballad "My Heart Belongs to Me." Streisand Superman seemed to be an unusually personal album for the singer, reflecting her feelings and viewpoints. That did not make it one of her best, however.
