Jett has survived rock 'n' roll's harshness. And now, she brandishes it as a weapon. This woman is ROCK 'N' ROLL. A good CD, a good buy for any music fan. Enjoy.
The first track is RIDDLES. It is a war protest song about war and our loss of freedoms. At one point, Ms. Jett shouts WAKE UP PEOPLE! This is something I have been shouting for some time now. (Sadly, as long as Americans have their gas-guzzling SUV's and their cell phones, nothing else seems to matter.)
The best song by far is A.C.D.C. This one kicks. Have you seen the video with Carmen Electra? Hot!
Joan seems more and more comfortable with her sexuality here. I am sure you can guess what that sexuality is. She is not preachy - she just asks why do people care?
Finally, her remake of A 100 FEET AWAY (from ALBUM) is a nice inclusion. And it's always great to hear FETISH!
... her efforts and commitment to make it happen are admirable, as seen in the included video...
... in contrast with several bands of the 80s, returning or rejoining to remake their old hits, joan keeps on writing new music... very good music indeed!
... get it now, you won't regret it...
"Sinner" has very few weak spots & I also like the contrast between the rockers & the slower songs. I especially liked the re-make of "100 Ft. Away". I have seen Joanie touring behind every album, even her first, and
regardless of the crowd/club, she holds nothing back. High spots include
"A.C.D.C", Riddles, Watersign, Baby Blue, Everyone Knows,Bad time. Blazing guitars, signature growling vocals, (soft/caring when necessary)--all Jett constants. "Fetish" rocks as hard as anything shes' done. I could go on but there is really not a bummer on the album. If you have been waiting for a 1st-class Jett album, wait no longer. The wait is over.
Frosty Prim/veteran live music goer
Then comes one of the obligatory covers (and the album's highlight), a ripping cover of Sweet's "Ac/Dc." (The other cover, of The Replacements' "Androgynous," does not fair as well.) "Ac/Dc" crunches the guitar chords, plays with ambiguous sexuality - LOVE that video - and glams like her Gary Glitter covers from the early days.
What holds the CD back is a couple of strange choices in back tracking. The decision to rerecord "Fetish" and "100 Feet Away" wiffs of filler, even if it might be some fans' first chance to hear them. But still, songs like "Everyone Knows" (her gay coming out song?), "Change The World" and a great ballad "Watersign" make up for the shortfalls. The Blackhearts are still kicking up a righteous racket, and "Sinner" is far better then anything we should be expecting at this late a date.

It's definitely worth a listen. If you liked her stuff in the past, you should certainly dig this!!Published 5 months ago by SEINFAN
Missed this album when it came out. Mostly new material. Good to get some more Joan Jett. I prefer the last studio album before and the recent Unvarnished, but still there are... Read morePublished 7 months ago by xxxBlackKnightxxx
All sorts of twists and turns on the dark and seamy side of things. Pure power-pop chords. I love "Bad Time" as one of my all-time favorite pop songs.Published 7 months ago by Rich Salz
Good selection of Joan's rock and roll. This has a studio quality that keys on the entire Blackhearts drawing out each instrument's contribution without over riding Joan's vocals. Read morePublished 19 months ago by Old Jade East

Joan does not dissappoint with Sinner. track after track and leaving you with an uncontrollable urge to move your feet.Published on March 3, 2013 by ZeldaFan72
I am Joan Jett's biggest fan, but this album is disappointingly mediocre. Four or five of the songs are okay, the rest aren't. Read morePublished on December 16, 2012 by W. Decker

|Amazon Removed My Review||
I noticed that a shorter version of the review was posted in the two-star reviews, so I'm a little confused. Perhaps one of Joan's more devoted fans complained about the review and initially got it blocked by an inexperienced Amazon employee. Amazon is pretty good about letting in all reviews,... Read More
