Joan Osborne talks about "Love and Hate", title track of her new album.


"This one feels a little different," Joan Osborne says of her new release Love and Hate. In addition to being the beloved singer-songwriter and seven-time Grammy nominee's eighth studio album and her eOne debut, the 12-song set is one of the most personally-charged, creatively ambitious efforts of her two-decades-plus recording career.

Editorial Reviews

Critically acclaimed singer/songwriter Joan Osborne reunites with the same team that worked on her 1995 top 5 hit, 'One Of Us', for Little Wild One. Long considered one of the greatest voices of her generation, Osborne has a passionate and wide fan base eagerly awaiting the true follow up to her three-time-platinum album, Relish.

5.0 out of 5 stars Joan's best since Relish! September 11, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I pretty much like everything that Joan does, but probably like many other fans, I've been waiting for a release that returns to the sonic quality of Relish. Little Wild One might be that CD. I'm finding myself hooked on listening to it, and the more I do, the more I like it. The fresh new songs are all worthy of Joan's vocals, with basic instrumentation that sounds very good -- usually a couple guitars, bass, and a keyboard -- some electric and some acoustic. There are some wonderful lyrics, good melodies, nice sounds, and Joan's rich and perfect-pitch voice is beautiful from beginning to end.

I'm always hoping to re-experience the mind blowing impact that Joan's singing had on me when I first heard "Ladder" and "St. Theresa" and other songs on "Relish". Joan doesn't belt out the soul like that, but I feel a lot more life in these recordings than in some of her recent R&B albums. This is fine stuff -- more mature, I think. Thanks for the great listening, Joan! I also recommend checking out Joan doing some fine vocal performances with Phil Lesh and Friends on Phil Lesh & Friends - Live at the Warfield Theater

4.0 out of 5 stars What a great album September 11, 2008
Format:Audio CD
I am a huge John Hiatt fan. What's that got to do with this album you ask?
Joan opened for John Hiatt in Boulder a couple nights ago. All I knew from her was her first album with the song "One of Us." (You know, the theme to "Joan of Arcadia") Anyway, she blew me away, as well as everyone else in the audience. (One even shouted she should be president, but I digress) I went to the table and immediately bought this album, and wished I had the income to purchase the rest.
As far as this album goes, my favorite track is "Cathedrals" or "Rodeo".
She has a terrific voice, and, for the first time, I was sorry when the opener for John Hiatt had to leave the stage. (On a side note, JH's concert was pretty darn good.)

5.0 out of 5 stars SOULFUL EARTHY - VOCALLY SOARING September 25, 2008
Format:Audio CD
I read about Ms Osborne's newest record in the paper a couple weeks ago. I ran out on my lunch hour to buy it along with Lindsey Buckingham's newest also. Comparitively, I've been listening to Joan's alot more. It's warmer, more mature, and the instrumentation and production is much better. Mr. Buckingham's sounds claustrophobic. Ms. Osborne's voice is the star here - soaring and dipping like a hawk on the wing - her vocals are pure and clear but she can sing with an edge too. The songs are strong - she references New York City and its neighborhoods in many of the tunes. She wrote or co-wrote most of them. The instrumentation is perfectly compliments the tunes. Enough variation to make each tune sound different. I especially like the electric 12 string guitar on the second track "Sweeter Than The Rest". My overall favorite track is "Light of This World".
Joan is the best female vocalist in her age group. I am waiting for the postman to deliver the Phil Lesh & Friends recording with Joan singing Greatful Dead tunes - that's got to be wild.
Anyway, this disc gets a big thumbs up from this reviewer who's been listening to music for close to 50 years. I can't wait to buy a copy for my 31 year old daughter, she'll love it.

Joan Osborne returns with "Little Wild One", her seventh cd, and her first cd of predominantly original material in eight years! It's about time!

Not only does Joan write, or co-write ten of the eleven tracks, but she decided to have the original production team from her smash 1995 cd "Relish" to the same for "Little Wild One". Rob Hyman and Eric Bazilian (of The Hooters, one of my favorite bands) and Rick Chertoff (who produced several Hooters cds and even Cyndi Lauper too) all lend a hand, making "Little Wild One" Joan's most satisfying cd in eight years since 2000's "Righteous Love".

There are several standout tracks here, but two of my favorites are Joan's self-penned "Meet You In The Middle" and her cover song of R. Cliff's "Cathedrals" (I wish I knew who he was so I could hear the original version). Other standouts are "Rodeo", "Daddy-O", "Light Of The World", "Sweeter Than The Rest" and "Can't Say No" and "To The One I Love".

This is the Joan Osborne I have been pining for through her last three (yes, THREE!) cover albums. I hope her urge to do cover songs is behind her now so that we may experience full, undiluted Joan.

If you've left the Joan Osborne herd, it's time to come back. "Little Wild One" is one of her best works. Four stars because it's not quite "Relish", but it comes close.

5.0 out of 5 stars Magic Happens, Again! February 2, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I really admire Joan Osborne. and I was delighted to hear that she had teamed up with the team the guys who brought us Relish: Eric Bazilian, Rob Hyman, William Wittman, Rick Chertoff and Mark Egan playing bass. When I first heard Eric's mandolin on track one, I knew I was going to be lead on a musical journey I would no doubt enjoy. This is not Relish, but it is just as good! It's just different. Suffice to say, I have had this CD in my car for over a year (note: this is an updated review, as I added a star because I love this album THAT much!), and have played it over a hundred times. It's Joan and company dishing out some great lyrics, some amazing backing instruments, and luscious vocals!

Joan has soul, one of the finest voices in contemporary music, and has great song ideas, but having Eric and Rob at her back, she can reach the heights of the Cathedral where she hoped she would stay, post Relish. I had heard rumors for the past few years that this album was going to be made, but it just kept getting delayed. Finally I found out through the Philly grapevine that Joan had been in Rob's Elm Street Studio with Eric, and I knew that magic would inevitably happen with two of the most gifted songwriter/producers I know, and Bazilian/Hyman, known to many as the core of the Philly band, The Hooters, can make magic when given enough canvass on which to paint.

This is a more nuanced album, with a very spartan production (but some really tasty guitar playing on Eric's part!), which I know Joan insisted upon. Though Cathedral is the money shot, I love listening to the elegant chord changes Eric and Rob injected into the first two songs. These are songwriters who know their craft, and are at the top of their game--still.
