Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Why pick on a girl for taking a chance? After experiencing flagging sales, Jewel has become proactive and given herself a cosmetic and artistic makeover. But 0304 isn't the winsome thrush's first leap into the unknown. Hiring Shakira producer Lester A. Mendez to give her solemn, folksy songs a pop sheen and some dance beats isn't as radical as starring as a Civil War widow in an Ang Lee film. Besides it's a lot more interesting to hear her squeeze her chaste, malleable soprano around an accordion solo in the futuristic namedropping fable "Intuition" or her voice a beat-driven condemnation of the George W. Bush regime on "America" to see her sashaying on the silver screen in those tight bodices and hoop skirts. Although she has changed the very structure and sound of her songs, Jewel's undeniable talent shines through. She still has a way with words and her voice is remains as pure as an Alaskan stream. --Jaan Uhelszki

Product Description

Jewel's eagerly awaited fifth album sees the multi-platinum singer/songwriter once again expanding her ever-diverse musical palette. Co-produced by Lester Mendez (known for his work with such artists as Enrique Iglesias and Shakira) and Jewel herself, TK features a hypnotic fusion of sounds - melding pop, rock, folk, jazz, and dance with her uniquely personal lyrical style and musical authenticity. Tracks like the smash first single, "Intuition" are inspired by Jewel's burgeoning interest in modern dance beats and textures, while other songs retain the artist's remarkable talent for powerful lyricism and winning melodies. Organic, inventive and altogether extraordinary, 0304 stnads as Jewel's most daring and delightful collection thus far.

5.0 out of 5 stars How Do You Prefer Your Jewel? July 13, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Enough with the negative reviews on this cd. It's too different for the hardcore fans, etc., etc. It's too much like Christina Aguilera or Britany Spears, which is inaccurrate. You know, there was a time when a female artist could jump genres of music and receive accolades instead of dismissals. Olivia Newton-John, Tina Turner, Cher, Madonna, Annie Lennox, Sinead O'Connor--all were able to shift gears musically, and to me that's a sign of talent, not selling out. Sure, Jewel is finely airbrushed on the cover, the titles are written like Prince tunes (U & Me= Love, Run 2 U, Yes U Can), and the songs are polished to fine pop bliss. I, for one, find this cd to be one of Jewel's finest. She forgoes all the pseudo-serious folk preaching and gets down to business with a cd filled with upbeat tracks instead of her serious ballads. However, she is still writing about serious topics such as social issues in "Stand" and "America" along with other familiar themes of love such as "Run 2 U", "Fragile Heart" and "2 Become 1". She also deals with letting go and trying new things such as the first single "Intuition", which probably flew over most Jewel fans' heads. She even deals with lust on "Sweet Temptation", "U & Me= Love" and "Yes U Can". In fact, there are a number of hits on this disc: "Stand", "Run 2 U", "Intuition", "Leave The Lights On", "2 Find U", "Fragile Heart", "Sweet Temptation", "Yes U Can", "America" & "Becoming". The only true miss is the overlong "Haunted", which seemed out of place. This new direction is great--a breath of fresh air for Jewel. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars A Album To Be Remembered January 5, 2007
By Vu
Format:Audio CD
Not only does the title of the album 0304 show that this record was meant to be something to remember, but the uniqueness of it shows it. When people think of Jewel they think of how she used to be from her 1st album, her real fans never seemed to grasp the real uniquness of Jewel which was that she could do whatever she wants whenever she wants. If she wants to do folk she can do folk, if she wants to do rock she can do rock, if she wants to do jazz she can do jazz, in this case she chose to modern pop and I couldn't be more happier. Songs like Intuition are more than just songs with some good dance sounds, underneath the melody there are some of the most well written lyrics with messages that will blow your mind. For example, the song Yes U Can. When people hear it they think, "It's just a song with a hip beat," when actually her message has to do with the way people live. We go around and have this wild atmosphere where anything and everything can happen. She's saying that guys and girls can do whatever they want, but actually she is pointing out the easiness and non cunning way it takes for someone to get what they want and in this case the person is getting love or one time pleasures. Like this song, the songs off this album is like "a needle in a haystack," it's something you have to search for if you really want to know what she's talking about. It's not that Jewel sold out, it's that people don't want to look for a message anymore. They want it given to them like a toy at Christmas. You don't even have to search for it, but in this case you have to. I find this album a total treasure and will take advantage of the messages that she gives to us. Will you?

5.0 out of 5 stars pop satire December 2, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Jewel goes over the top in this comedic but conscientious musical satire of superficial culture. 0304 is funny because Jewel mocks the "divas" and the "gangstas" in their own teen demographic targeted language... bubblegum and rap music. It is interesting how 0304 seperates the people who "hear" music from the people who are actually listening. What's the difference? Some people listen to the lyrics and get it and the rest don't get it because they are only looking at the surface, but either way you look at it, the album works. I am glad I fall into the "get it" category.
Talent is just a matter of technical mastery but Jewel has more than that going for her. I suspect Jewel has doctorate degrees in philosophy and literature or something. The woman is clever.

5.0 out of 5 stars A departure, but still classic Jewel June 10, 2003
Format:Audio CD
In what many claim to be a very Madonna-esque album, Jewel croons on topics ranging from her intuition to Abercrombie-clad preachers. All this is to an electronically synthesized backdrop, complete with clapping and French accordion. That may be due to the influence of co-producer Lester A. Mendez, who most recently worked with Shakira and Enrique Iglesias.
With the release of `0304,' Jewel raises the proverbial bar once again and proves to her fans that she is still maturing as an artist. Has it really been nearly 10 years since Jewel first questioned our soul-saving skills? On the surface, it seems that the once soft-spoken songstress is gone and in its place, we have a new glittery Jewel. As evidenced in the "Intuition" video, Jewel isn't afraid to shed her folkie skin to reveal her, well, skin, literally. Yet, sensitive fans fear not. Hidden beneath these sultry dance moves, remains the same lyrical prose
The similarities to Madonna become apparent as one listens from track to track. `0304' even has its own song about the land of the free with the same exact title - "America." Instead of versing on soy lattes and pilates, however, Jewel makes a real effort on social commentary. Madonna only wished she could be as lyrically clever. In this very song, she reveals that she wants to change America, but she wouldn't leave it if she could. There are no threats of expatriation here.
That's not to say that there are only upbeat songs assessing the state of society in `0304' (which by the way is the meaning of the numerical title - the album is meant as a snapshot of the times leading up to 2004). In probably one of Jewel's most powerful songs, Jewel lets loose in "Haunted," a song from a male stalker's perspective.
