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

Biography

"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

Amazon.com

Joan Osborne's One of Us is billed as a career retrospective by one of the more impressive, if now largely forgotten soul/rock (and folk) stars of the ‘90s. Unfortunately, One of Us does not live up to expectations. Not quite as retrospective as advertised, this album is simply a repackaging of most of the tracks on 2002's How Sweet it Is, with a few seminal tracks (such as her explosive hit title song) thrown in where other songs are deleted. There is much, however, to appreciate and listen to with new ears. The 1995 title track remains thought-provoking and musically engaging, as does "Right Hand Man," Osborne’s killer song of sexual afterglow with its provocative 'panties' line. And if she went out on a big limb in attempting to cover Aretha Franklin’s "Think," she succeeds beautifully in recasting other soul classics. Otis Redding’s "These Arms of Mine" becomes an even franker declaration of naked want. By bending the melody away from an upbeat cry of exuberant joy to a slower burn of redemptive gratitude (with accents of Eastern music, yet), she almost totally remakes the Marvin Gaye/James Taylor hit "How Sweet it Is."--Alanna Nash

Product Description

One of the most distinctive vocalists to arise out of the 1990’s, Joan Osborne has impressed audiences with her energetic and heartfelt performances for well over a decade, developing a loyal fan base that continues to expand today. One Of Us showcases Osborne’s powerful and emotive vocal style with eleven incredible songs, including "How Sweet It Is", "Love’s In Need Of Love Today", and the smash single "One Of Us", a must-have for Joan Osborne fans and rock music devotees everywhere.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Singer - Strange Collection July 1, 2005
By ejlnyc
Format:Audio CD
First of all, I'm completely biased in that Joan Osborne is my favorite singer, bar none. But this collection, ONE OF US, repackages almost all the tracks off her wonderful HOW SWEET IT IS CD and includes just a few older songs. So, be warned - you might be better off buying her full-length CDs as this one is hardly a proper compilation of her stellar work. Of course, if you have NO Joan music, this is a fine place to start, just not the best. She also has a new CD of brand new music coming soon that undoubtedly will be terrific.

My only caveat about this ONE OF US collection being that it's always possible this is a collection of acoustic versions or alternate takes or something, but I doubt it. I suspect it's a record company project and something Joan herself has little, if any, control over or participation in.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good place to start... August 21, 2005

if you are new to Joan Osborne but she is one artist that doesn't have an album full of "throwaway tracks", so you are better off just purchasing the 3 studio albums and, if you really want a bluesy treat, get the "Early "recordings" album. Son Of A Preacher Man has never been more intense! Joan is a diamond that sadly gets lost in the zirconia of the world. If you love Joss Stone, get Joan Osborne and see how soul music can really be done!

5.0 out of 5 stars Joan Osborne, ONE OF US January 14, 2007
By D. Pace
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I heard a great rendition of "I'll Be Around" while in an Eddie Bauer Outlet store in Phoenix. The clerks could not tell me who the artist was, so I e-mailed Eddie Bauer, they couldn't help either. SO, I search the net especially Amazon.com to see if I could hear a snippet. Wouldn't you know,it was Joan Osborne. I then looked at her video for "Love's in Need of Love." It was great!! I discocvered the "One of Us" CD and it had several songs I like including that cover of "I'll Be Around" and "One of US." Highly recommend for a mellow mood.

4.0 out of 5 stars Deceptive Amazon September 22, 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this album under the mistaken impression that this was the long-awaited next album from joan Osborne, only to see that what I received was a repacked "How Sweet It Is" into a mock "new" album. Now that I have received it, Amazon posts the track listings, which would have clued me in that it was NOT the new album. Haven't decided whether to open it and keep it, give it away or send it back.

The track listing is still worthy of a four star review, but not a single track from her second album shows up, and there are some fatastic pieces on her first album that are not at all represented in the two selections that appear here.

Really, though, we didn't need this CD. We want the next album from Joan Osborne. It was supposed to be finished over a year ago. Where is it? The fans want new work? And what about the Dolly Parton tribute she recorded songs on? Why can't we find that on Amazon?

And the real "new" album is out, but only available at Barnes and Noble. Look for "Christmas Means Love" on the B&N website. I bet this is a political statement to not have the new album available on Amazon, and the above "greatest hits" is Amazon's response...pathetic...
