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.

While Osborne has already earned a ... Read more in Amazon's Joan Osborne Store

5.0 out of 5 stars holds up over time February 24, 2003
Format:Audio CD
When Alanis Morissette was cleaning up at the Grammy's with her album Jagged Little Pill, the other top female artist at the time was Joan Osborne with her single "One of Us". While "One of Us" started getting pegged as fluff, I always thought that Osborne's album should have been getting some of those awards Alanis was taking home. While I thought Relish was the better album, I really wasn't playing it very often and it quickly got lost in the shuffle. Every so often I pulled the cd out and was surprised by how good it is.
It is now back in rotation on my cd player. If memory serves me, the only singles off this album were "One of Us" and "Right Hand Man" (I remember seeing those two performed on Saturday Night Live). However, favorites of mine also include "Lumina", "Crazy Baby", "St. Teresa", and "Ladder". Actually, to be honest, this is a very solid album and while I haven't heard much from Osborne's other albums, this one stands up over time.

5.0 out of 5 stars A surprisingly great album. December 8, 1999
Format:Audio CD
I bought this album so I could own the song "One of Us." I never expected the rest of the album to be so darn good. Osborne is a deeply soulful, passionate singer, a mixture of Bonnie Raitt, Aretha Franklin, and Stevie Nicks all rolled into one. The songs are mostly blues based rock and roll, and the pop hit "One of Us" actually has a more mainstream pop sound than the other tunes. But the other songs are just trememdous. "Right Hand Man" and "Let's just Get Naked" are sexy songs, and "Spider Web" is an intense dream that Osborne relates about Ray Charles. Practically all the songs are outstanding. Buy this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful voice, intelligent thoughts August 15, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Joan Osborne is one of those artists who asks the question 'Who is God?' and points at you and me with the answer in "One Of Us" which is track no. 6 on her second album, titled "Relish". While this track is probably the most widely known, every single track on this album is a masterpiece. (The same goes for her third album, "Righteous Love" which I personally like - what 'like'... _adore_ - even more! Both are absolutely worth having in your CD-collection. Joan's music is emotional, her voice is strong, sexy and beautiful, the lyrics depicts intelligence and after having listened to her songs, you sure have received something valuable. A quote from Joan Osborne: "I haven't really thought about trying to do something that's current or hip right now. There's an Oscar Wilde quote: 'Beware of being too fashionable, or you'll soon be unfashionable'. I try to dig at the roots of the things that I'm drawn to, because those things, to me, are timeless. And if I take my inspiration from that, there's a greater chance the music I make will also be timeless."

4.0 out of 5 stars I liked this album in '95 and I still do. September 28, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Hi gang, I was just checking back here to see if Joan Osborne has a new album in the wings. It's been 4 years now!
I like this album a lot, still. It sounds like she was trying a lot of different styles and genres, and some work better than others. Her spooky, atmospheric tale-telling in "Long Black Coat" (a Dylan cover) is great. In the very next track, Right Hand Man, she delivers a pounding rock groove in 7/4 time(!) with the spirit of early Rod Stewart or the Black Crowes. The last song, Lumina, is brief and minimal strum-n-sing but it's so beautiful and tender. Joan has one of the most versatile voices I've ever heard.
An overlooked masterpiece of the album is Dracula Moon. WOW. Take six minutes of your time to turn up the volume and get fully lost in that song. The way she stars slow and builds that intense, edgy mood of sexual and societal defiance is awesome.
I heard somewhere that she had been studying voice with a legendary Middle Eastern singer (Nurset Fa?? Ali Khan? -- I am blanking on name) before he died a couple years ago. It will be interesting to see if that influences her new work at all.
p.s. minus one star -- I tend to skip over "Help Me" and "Let's Just Get Naked." Love the rest though.

5.0 out of 5 stars refreshingly different! July 9, 2002
Format:Audio CD
When I first listened to this album it didn't strike me as something I'd like. I loved the single "One Of Us" and bought it anyway. Turns out I couldn't have been more wrong! It was unlike anything in my collection. Joans voice is so raw and soulful. The mixture of blues and rock is reminiscent of Janis Joplin. The way she wails and moans throughout the album is what really makes this one of my favorites. She brings the best out of all the songs on the album. "St. Teresa" is awesome, giving the album a great jump start. Following is "Man in the Long Black Coat," one of the best tracks on the album, it can really take you there if you just close your eyes, relax, and listen. It was penned by legendary Bob Dylan. "Right Hand Man" is the fastest track, dripping with sensuality, it's a great song to get the blood pumping! "Pensacola" is a good song to sing along to (great lyrics)! "Dracula Moon," also one of my favorites, is probably the best example of the bluesy rock on this album. "One Of Us" speaks for itself. It's controversial and it makes you think. This song actually brings me closer to God. And then there's "Ladder" and "Spider Web." These are probably my two favorite cuts from the album. I just cant help from turning them up real loud and rockin out! The last four tracks are also great, especially "Crazy Baby," it's a real mood setter and shows a little of Joans softer side. The last track "lumina" is my least favorite. Overall, this is one of the best albums out there.
