"Naked Songs was my very first experience with Rickie Lee Jones, having been highly recommended by a good friend a few weeks ago. I refrained from starting with the more logical choice of her first album "Rickie Lee Jones," as I suspected that that friend might give me that CD for Christmas (I was right). As a result, it is possibly that my rating is skewed because this is my first contact with R.L.J. and therefore I am rating her against all the other music I've heard, rather than against herself. I cannot speak to the quality of "Naked Songs" in comparison to her other work, but I will say "Naked Songs" is one of the best CDs I've ever heard.As others have noted, at first I was put off by her voice. Initially, it seemed too loud and a little annoying, but the rhythm of "Young Blood" and the lyrics and melody of "Altar Boy" caught me, and I kept listening. It took a couple of times through the CD, but I have since fallen in love with CD. The more I listen to it, the more I fall in love with other songs that I used to be tempted to skip over and am now instead tempted to put on "repeat." Without a doubt, this is a CD that bears multiple listenings and grows rather than shallows the more you hear it, in my opinion the sign of true quality in a record. Most notably, the songwriting, in terms of both lyrics and music, is incredible throughout.Rickie Lee Jones is an artist worth looking into. I'm sorry that so few people today seem to have even heard of her. I find myself wanting to make friends sit down and check this CD out. Hopefully you will give her music a chance as well."

"i thought it was funny -that the one star review, the person from Maine, who said that they thought the musicians on this record hadn't practiced. that is probably true, seeing as it's a SOLO record, and there were no other musicians!
One of the things that are valuable about this recording is that you can hear traces of roots, and that's always fun. I hear little Curtis Mayfield in Youngblood. And the solo interpretation of Flying Cowboys, which was so great with the band, is very moving here on twelve string. all the emotion in the world springing up suddenly, and then the calm, odd, amazing voice just speaks the words. an uncomprimising spirit, this really is naked songs, and not just solo recordings."
