EDITORS’ NOTES

Dubliner Imelda May proved her timeless mettle on this thoroughly confident second album. Despite her lashing wail on bookends “Johnny Got a Boom Boom” and “Watcha Gonna Do,” she’s just as adept at bringing her voice down for jazzy torch songs like “Knock 123” and “Meet You at the Moon.” Whether wrapping herself around upright bass or boogieing piano, May masters both Sun Records rockabilly and Sarah Vaughan jazz—while adding a plucky Irish twist.
