This CD is excellent. The songs are provocative, honest, and hit home. I have come to the sad realization of what a great talent was lost when Amy Winehouse died.

"Got the album download last week for $8. I already have her other album, Frank, which I also enjoy immensely but I feel this is a superior album overall. The songs have a more old time classic blues/jazz sound to them and Amy is just masterful in her renditions. In my opinion,she's the BEST I've heard in the last 10 years. If you only know her from her off stage antics and troubles, PLEASE do yourself a favor and give her a listen. Only can such beautiful music come from such a tortured soul."
An astonishing album of updated 60s soul/jazz

"Amy Winehouse sounds incredibly authentic as the Detroit-via-London chanteuse who infuses each song with 60s Shangri-Las doo-wop plus some jazz and blues. It's as if some time machine dropped on your CD player, pushed you back 40 years, and ten lost gems just tumbled out. However, the lyrics don't speak to bubblegum sensibilities -- heartache, relationship upheavals, and personal downfalls inhabit these songs. Amazing that she wrote or co-wrote all the songs. An incredible emotive talent with the perfect voice for this project. I did want to note that the tracks produced by Salaam Remi (ex: Me & Mr Jones) sound much cleaner than those produced by Mark Ronson (ex: "Rehab") who tries a bit too hard to recreate that mono-ish 60s wall of sound. This is not a high-fidelity release."
