EDITORS’ NOTES

With her first self-release, vocal wunderkind Joss Stone teams with producer Dave Stewart to expand on her retro-soul sound, weaving bluesy riffs and sultry pop melodies under her smoky, powerful vocals. With its funky keys, “Karma” is pure dance-floor boogie, while “Newborn” starts with gentle folk guitars before Stone explodes with pane-rattling howls. She exudes a defiant rock swagger on “Don’t Start Lying to Me Now,” but on “Cry Myself to Sleep”—with twinkling piano and sweet vocals—she takes the energy down a notch.

Great Joss Stone album. More blues than pop, which is a good thing. Her best album since the first.

LP1. Joss Stone

When there is so auto tune and enhanced music out there this is such a welcome change! True talent win out! When you rock you rock! If you are only going to buy one album this is it. Stop searching..... You found it. Her soulful voice and upbeat tempos just make you feel apart of the song and the story. That's what REAL music does.
