I was very hyped when I realized Lucy was coming out with a new album. But after listening to the album twice through, I feel like her songs are either hit or miss.

A lot of that has to do with, I think, her shift towards a jazz or big band style. Her first album was really good but was definitely pop oriented. Her second album was a lot more towards the jazz end of the spectrum. Jazz is not my really my thing, but Lucy definitely pulled it off well and I liked Hot and Bothered better than her first cd.

Hooked! continues this progression, which in some instances is a very good thing. For example, listen to Babies or Another Woman. However, some of the songs just don't quite do it for me yet.

What I am trying to say is, this album may be one where some of the material has to grow on you. At least, I know it is going to be for me.

No surprise that it took the insight and creativity of Tony Visconti to tranform an erstwhile dime-a-dozen pop singer (imprisoned by predictably uninspired arrangements) into a classy vocalist of distinction. This album, however, could have benefitted immensely by including more bouncy selections in the vein of 'He Got Away' and 'I Wanna Be Like You.'

The Brooklyn Boy (Visconti) appears on so many of my favorite records by Gentle Giant, Sparks, Strawbs, The Alarm, The Move, Procol Harum, Bowie and T Rex. As he approaches age 70 it's good to see his name popping up in album credits again; Here on HOOKED! and more recently on THE NEXT DAY and presumably others. I hope he gets another opportunity with Woodward so he can expand and experiment even further to make her transformation more complete and permanent.

A major difference from the debut album once again.

It's not as much of a shock as it was when her sophomore album "Hot & Bothered" was released, I was caught off guard with that one. I was more prepared this time around, I had a strong feeling that this would happen again the next time around.

You know what they say, First time "Shame on you" second time "Shame on me".

Anyone who heard the first album would be confused about the next two.

I knew what I was up for this time around so my rating is higher indeed.

"Hooked!" is more acceptable, as it is a third release, When most artists decide to take chances.

With "Hot & Bothered" I just felt it was much too soon to be experimenting and the songs on that album didn't have as much flavour as the ones on "Hooked!".

"Hooked!" has a lot more personality/character than "Hot & Bothered".

The music alone is entertaining, dramatic yet soothing. It's like a gumbo of all kinds of delightful instruments Xylophone, Trombone, chimes, Bells etc. Topped with Lucy's creamy vocals.

Lucy also re-recorded two songs from "Hot & Bothered" for this release which are "Too Much To Live For" which is better than the original, It's a mellow version of the song and "Slow Recovery" which is also better than the original recording.

"Slow Recovery" on "Hooked!" is the exact same song and style she just re-sings it alot better. I actually like the song now.

Although this album is good it "does" take some getting used to.

"He Got Away" "This Empty Room" and "Rag Doll" are my favorites. "This Empty Room" reminds me alot of The Dresden Dolls, Has that Dark Cabaret sound.

Hooked! Is Woodward's third, and three's the charm - if the charm is a big, fat bauble on an index finger pointed directly at you, while feet fly up in the air in the background. Singer-songwriter Lucy Woodward continues her swinging trek backward from her generic, pop-rock start to a Voodoo-Daddy-influenced romp that's more 50's sensibility than 00's recklessness. "He Got Away" kicks off with "Caravan"-style drums. Peggy Lee's "Sans Souci" sambas carefree into a darkening night. "Purple Heart" lights a torch for a lost love. And then Louis Prima's "I Wanna Be like You (The Monkey Song)" recaptures the flirtatious monkeyshines, as Woodward's again dancing across your heart. It's not all retro heaven, though, as her cover of Nellie McKay's "Another Woman" addresses guilt and rationalization in a thoroughly modern, unresolved way, while "Babies" bemoans the biological clock in a bombastic ballad that's only half tongue-in-cheek. Everywhere, the band's precise arrangements and orchestral touches complement Woodward's sass and panache, until the final track -- a riveting, multi-part, a cappella take on Hoagy Carmichael's chestnut, "Stardust." Woodward goes backward to bring it forward. The melody haunts my reverie.

Love Lucy's voice and the Genre. This is my first experience with her music.
I'm hoping she has other offerings along the same line with the same excitement. Love it!

I chose the rating of "Fair" because I just wanted to try out a new artist. I was intrigued about her and had read a review about her music.
