Editorial Reviews

Review

...A sonic turnstile that flips through dreamy pop, jazz and bluesy bebop, `Slow Recovery' lovingly revisits '60s Britpop, with a cool finger-snapping rhythm, stings of strings and percussive snaps, and a performance that fosters an image of the vocalist clinging to the mic stand with one hand, glass of champagne in the other and a faraway look in her eyes, toying sensuously with her audience. The album boasts staggering versatility as Woodward transitions to new wave-y `Submarine Love,' Shirley Bassey-esque `Love Is Gonna Getcha' and torchy `I Won't Care.' Lucy's a ball, equally appreciable for fans of melodic singalong baubles and highbrow aficionados of finely honed musical composition. --Billboard

A steamy, string-kissed slice of retro British pop by a versatile singer/songwriter. --USA Today

[Lucy Woodward] has the kind of voice that sounds good just breathing into a microphone. `Hot & Bothered' actually came from a Yiddish lullaby her grandma used to sing to her. If only we all could be sung to sleep by such music. --Campus Circle

Product Description

Smart and sassy women vocalists may sound like the flavor of 2008, but Lucy Woodward has been blazing her own path since the 2003 release of her Top 40 hit Dumb Girls, which allowed her to tour internationally as well as garner her significant press exposure including a spot on `The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.' Hold the damage and call off the paparazzi, though -- Woodward knows the difference between confidence and braggadocio; unlike most of today s crop of young soul singers, there s no imminent train wreck in her future. The intervening five years have amped up the funk and hip-hop quotient of her music, and on `Lucy Woodward Is...Hot & Bothered,' she hooks up with Itaal Shur, who co-wrote the Santana Grammy-winning hit, `Smooth,' and Tim K. (of the Electronica/House duo, Home & Garden). Mixing her convincing vocals and songwriting with pop smarts yields a potent and well-rounded portrait of a young singer enviably in control. From the hip-hop-soul-styled `Use What I Got' to the small-combo blues of `Geographical Cure,' Woodward invests contemporary productions with jazzy flourishes -- imagine Amy Winehouse and Duffy with an additional decade of musical references. `Love Is Gonna Getcha' mines a trip-hop groove with John Barry orchestrations and disco-era harmonies, with Woodward's golden vocals bouncing along the top. Its companion track, `Too Much to Live For,' kicks all of the above into higher gear and adds a gospel breakdown. The London-born, Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter's versatility is unsurprising if you consider her pedigree as the daughter of a belly-dancing opera singer and a composer-conductor. On the torchy `Slow Recovery,' though, Woodward shows off her most valuable asset: a flexible, sensual voice with a seductive rasp that should be leaving listeners hot and bothered for a long time to come. Lucy's sizzling live performance includes horns, dancing and backup singers which offer the perfect send up to her lusty torch-style vocals. The Lucy Woodward experience is an endless feast for eyes and ears. Sexy, soulful and sensational, Lucy has showcased her songs to captivated standing room only audiences all across the New York and Los Angeles metropolitan areas. `Lucy Woodward Is...Hot & Bothered' includes a special CD package with pull-out color poster, all of the songs' lyrics, and 12 amazing and timeless songs for you to enjoy for years to come.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lucy Woodward December 26, 2008
Format:Audio CD
The CD may be entitled "Lucy Woodward Is Hot and Bothered" but perhaps the subtitle should be "and so will you..."
You've more than likely heard Lucy's vocals tugging at you in the background of films and television "movies" and so it should be as her sumptuous voice is a backdrop of tonal delicacies. As a singer/songwriter commonly known for the Top 40 hit "Dumb Girls", released in February 2003, Woodward continued to tour and contribute to various soundtracks eventually scoring a BMI Pop Award for writing the hit single "(There's Gotta Be) More to Life" featured on Stacie Orrico's self titled album.
Now, with the introduction of "Lucy Woodward Is Hot and Bothered" Woodward has obviously found her niche.
With a come hither voice that heralds back to the days of No Doubt when Stephani was interesting, Woodward delivers an array of songs that range from Motown-esque love to dimly lit 1940's nightclub torch tunes that make you think of the days of Sean Connery Bond movies, martini bars and unrequited lovers.
In short, "Lucy Woodward Is Hot and Bothered" is a must have cd for your eclectic collection and let's just hope she keeps channeling whatever has her in a "state of sudden yet subtle arousal" and that she always has a mic nearby.

5.0 out of 5 stars This CD will knock your socks off! November 8, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Lucy Woodward is back with a second album full of soul, funk, torch, and killer pop that will have you listening non-stop. From her amazing voice to her brilliant songwriting skills, this is one artist to keep your eye on. There is not one song in the bunch that will make you press your 'skip' button. She's even better live, so keep a watch out for it. In the meantime, grab this CD - you won't be sorry.

2.0 out of 5 stars "You Found Me Out" December 26, 2008
By ULTRA
Format:Audio CD
What a devastating release. I listened to this CD time and time again, In hopes that it would grow on me, It never did. Lucy has altered her sound which is the disappointment. It's much too soon in her career to switch things up to this magnitude.

I "just" began to get a feel of who she was through her debut record "While You Can". Which is truly amazing btw. Now suddenly i've been slapped in the mug, the rug has been SNATCHED from beneath me and i'm thrown out in the cold to fend for my self.

I was expecting something along the lines of the debut record, Something with guitars, Something rockier than this, Something a lot more predictable, especially coming from someone who's only on their sophomore release. You're not Madonna, You're not Cher, You're not Janet Jackson, You haven't been around long enough to believe it's time for you to make a change, excuse me?. Master the sound in which you started with first. Then maybe, We can talk about making only "subtle" changes on the 3rd or 4th album, But you're not even there yet.

I can't stress that enough, In my most recent music reviews. The artists of today have issues with being predictable with their music the first few albums of their careers. How else will we get to know who you are and what you're bringing if you keep flipping the script?. If I wanted a Jazzy/Hip-Hop styled album (with the internet) I'd have no problem finding an artist to deliver that sound. It's obvious that Jazz or HipHop was not the sound I was looking for when I clinged to Lucy Woodward with debut album "While You Can".
