Not the Joss we used to know

by Massimo on 4/3/2007

If you bought her previous album and loved it, they you might not like this one. I was very dissapointed. Seems like Joss Stone gave up and join the Pop crew. Trying to be another Cristina Aguilera, J-lo. I don't know, it's got more noise, more beat and base than singing. That bugs me since I used to crank her Mind Body and soul album up to hear her voice, now I have to turn it down because of too much boom. In my opinion, too much crap, I mean rap. whatever...

THE GIRL CAN SING!

I was not a Joss Stone fan before this album,only because I have not been buying many CD'S as of late.One night while watching videos on BET I see the video for "Tell Me What We're Gonna Do Now" and was I blown away with her vocal.I could have lived without Common's 2 cents,I think it detracts from the song's easy listening vibe,but having said that it is still a great track.So I went over to BUY.COM and listened to the whole cd and was hooked!Each time I listened I liked it more. I have not bought a cd in 3 years so that is saying something. Maybe I just needed a change from the Britney's and Jessica's of the pop scene.Buy this cd,you won't be dissapointed.Almost every track is easy listening.That is rare for most artists these days.That's why everybody rips mp3's.We don't want to pay 14.00 for 2 good songs and the rest crap.So go Joss Stone! I am your new fan.

And yet, only now, on her third album, Introducing Joss Stone, does the British soul singer and songwriter feel she is expressing her true musical vision. "This is the first album I've made that is truly me," she says. "That's why I'm calling it Introducing Joss Stone. These are my words, and this is who I am as an artist."

Artist Bio
Joss StoneFrom the time the Devon, England-bred Joss Stone emerged on the music scene at age 16, she has always displayed a strength and intensity, despite insisting that back then, being so young, she didn't know what she was doing. Critics disagreed, calling her a singer who possesses a "rich, deep, soulful belt," as the New York Post put it, and "unlike any singer of her generation." In 2003, Stone released The Soul Sessions, an album of covers of obscure soul tracks, hit the road for a year, then recorded 2004's Mind, Body & Soul, her first album of original material. Of that album, Newsweek noted: "Stone can croon it sad, deep, and throaty, belt it out juke-joint style, or get down and funky for the bump-and-grind crowd," while Interview heralded her "gutsy voice, which can sting like aged bourbon, or melt like strap molasses."Stone was nominated for three Grammy Awards in 2005, including Best New Artist, and performed a memorable tribute to Janis Joplin with Melissa Etheridge at the ceremony. Their rendition of "Cry Baby"/"Piece of My Heart" was released as a single, and became Stone's first Top 40 hit in the U.S. That same year, Stone appeared on every American late-night and morning talk show, and scored magazine features everywhere from Rolling Stone to Vanity Fair as well as the cover of fashion bible Elle.In February 2006, she joined Stevie Wonder, John Legend, and India.Arie for the Super Bowl XL pre-game show, while on the night of the 2006 Grammy Awards, she appeared with Legend and Van Hunt singing a medley of hits by soul star Sly Stone. Their cover of "Family Affair," which appears on the Sly Stone tribute album Different Strokes By Different Folks, has been nominated this year for a Grammy Award for "Best R&B Performance By A Duo or Group." Always game to honor the legends who came before her, Stone brought down the house with her rendition of Dusty Springfield's "Son of a Preacher Man" at the UK Music Hall of Fame Awards in November.Stone will be no less busy in 2007, when Virgin Records releases Introducing Joss Stone.
