CD Reviews

Jewel intuitively ventures to a new musical space.

"Don't let closed-minded pigeon-holers make you think Jewel is either selling out or trying to compete with all-gloss dance divas like Shakira or X-tina. Ms. Kilcher is, with gusto, melding her insightful lyrics and killer hooks with some hip-hop grooves for a catchy-as-hell batch of fun songs, led off by this repeat-listening-worthy advance single -- and the fact that "Intuition" IS an actual commercial single is telling, and refreshing. Jewel has gotten bashed for being too earnest, too introspective, too "pretentious", and she'll get bashed for this, too. But here's the truth: "Intuition" is a sexy, sultry, "summer" dance track with a memorable melody, and something dance tracks aren't known for -- lyrics that mean something. Oh, but wait, Jewel has written those all along. So open your minds and ears and burn your pre-conceived musical prejudices as you sing or dance along: it's great to hear this real-deal artist just having fun. To quote Nick Lowe, "Intuition" is Pure Pop for Now People, and there ain't nothin' wrong with that."

"Regardless of what you hear about Jewel being called a 'sellout', the fact of the matter is that her new single, 'Intuition' is a great, upbeat track. It's fresh and fun to dance to. Although I prefer her old sound and look more, Jewel still sings about her thoughts on society. The lyrics didn't change. They are just now accompanied by a dance beat. I am really looking forward to her new album."

""In Jewel I trust." This was what I said to myself again and again after her Spirit CD had come out and news was out that Jewel was going to make a country/rock album next. My heart sank. I was afraid that the observant folkie I loved was going to sell out. Well, the next album, 'This Way' came out and I loved it. It was her best album yet. Then news came out that a dance/hiphop-y album was on the plate next. My heart sank again. But then I remembered "in Jewel I trust" and how she's never managed to disappoint me. She's one of those rare artists that can venture into different arenas of music yet still stay true to her artistry. I usually cringe when I think of artists straying too far from their roots because the outcome isn't always great, but Jewel's new sound is fresh.The sound may be different, but the lyrics are still Jewel, the keen, observant, introverted woman who wrote Who Will Save Your Soul. The sound is surprisingly good with a really good dance beat, and her vocals are vibrant. This song, Intuition, is very upbeat, which is a welcome change. Sure, the music may be a more mainstream, but the lyrics definitely are still there. What's funny is this song makes fun of the idea of "selling out" (if you listen to the lyrics "you've got something that you're wanting to sell? Sell yourself. Just cash in.") and she's getting accused of selling out.Well, longtime fans know she has a very facetious and joking sense of humor. This is her way of making fun of herself, as she put it in an interview, "there's definitely irony in that I'm in a business where I'm selling my ideas." So, in a way, I guess this is her song mocking the pedistal she's been put on. That's what's great about this song, aside from it being hip, fresh, and just plain fun- that keen, facetious humor poking at every hypocrite is still there, and in this song, she's poking fun at herself."
