Editorial Reviews

Product Description

2010 album from the acclaimed singer/songwriter. Jewel is maintaining her Country roots as she returns to the format with Sweet and Wild. "The theme of this album is finding what's true about you and your life, and defending it and valuing it above all else," said Jewel. "My newest Country album will share so many of my personal feelings of love and happiness that I have written into the songs,"

Review

∗ ∗ ∗ ½

Working with top-shelf songwriters such as Nashville's Brett James and frequent Taylor Swift collaborator Liz Rose, Jewel returns with a batch of introspective, acoustic-driven songs that are at once languid and free-spirited, with fiercely focused themes. Two Jewel/Dave Berg collaborations are must-listens: "Ten" finds her thinking twice (or 10 times) before leaving after a nasty falling-out with a significant other, while the wistful, poetic "What You Are" looks frankly at self-esteem issues in lines such as I give love to others / But I give myself hell. The softly romantic "Summer Home in Your Arms" recalls her hit "You Were Meant for Me" with its acoustic guitar backing and poetic lyrics. "Stay Here Forever" (from the movie Valentine's Day) is a sweet, jingly tune, while the ballad "Satisfied" imparts wisdom with heartfelt emotion. Though her classy, docile voice may be overshadowed by more theatrical singers in country music, Jewel's gems neatly toe the line between art and commerce. -- Country Weekly, June 25, 2010

It's been a couple of years since Jewel made her leap to country music (or did country leap over to her?) with the excellent "Stronger Woman," and she returns with her second album for Valory Music. To my ears, I think she has gotten even better on this disc. Her vocals may very well might be even more expressive than before and, considering her body of work, that's a huge statement.

The set starts off with the fun sounding "No Good in Goodbye," and segues into some really inviting sounds throughout. "I Love You Forever" is one such cut that just sounds great, and it is the perfect blend of country and pop.

She's put together quite an amazing package--one that mixes breezy fun with some very meaningful ballads. "What You Are" is one of these, and her current single "Satisfied," is another. The latter might very well be her defining moment vocal performance. It is nothing short of passion and power at its' finest. With the right breaks, I think that the song could firmly establish her as a country superstar. Some stars have made the jump to country, and you have to wonder about their sincerity concerning the new format. After listening to her first two albums for Scott Borchetta and Valory, I am convinced that Jewel is not one of those! -- Chuck Dauphin, June 29, 2010

Jewels new album Sweet and Wild is another beautiful album from this one of a kind voice. I have been listening to Jewels music since 1995 when her first album Pieces of You was released. I have followed her on this amazing journey as I watch and listen to her grow as a artist. Now days Jewel is known as a country artist, but to me and many others (who followed her from the start) she is still Jewel with no labels like coutry, folk, or pop associated with her. Her music has always been more than just those labels. Her music crosses so many different styles its not fair to label her music. Sweet and Wild is a more personal album and is about love and happiness as Jewel herself says. The whole album is great, but the stand out tracks are Fading, What You Are, Satisfied, No More Heartaches, Bad As It Gets, and Stay Here Forever.

I highly recommend getting the deluxe edition Sweet and Wild [Deluxe Edition] [2 CD] of this album. It will please those early Jewel fans because it has a second CD (titled Sweet and Mild) which has the entire album in Acoustic just like old school Pieces of You Jewel. Both versions are beautiful, but the acoustic version gives a whole new life to the music. I highly suggest getting this amazing and beautiful album from this amazing artist known as Jewel.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than the Last Two July 25, 2010
Format:Audio CD
I would like to publicly apologize to Jewel for having doubted her. And I did doubt her. Goodbye alice in Wonderland was an okay album, but nowhere near as good as what she'd done before it. That's probably when I started to lose interest. And then came Perfectly Clear. It was a good concept. After all, why not try to tackle a genre she'd always wanted to be part of? But the result wasn't exactly impressive. If anything, it left me disappointed. Lullaby was pretty much the same: a lovely concept, but not so much in actual execution. So when I found out Jewel was coming out with a new album, I just didn't have that normal excitement I used to when I heard she had new music coming out. That didn't stop me from buying it though.
The day Sweet and Wild came out, my grandmother and I went straight out to get it and listen to it on the way home (a tradition of ours by now, seeing as Jewel is one of the few artists both of us love).
As soon as the first track started, I was glad to have bought it. By the fourth, I was in love. My grandma was too. And we had to play Bad as it Gets three times, just to hear her voice on that song.
Sweet and Wild is the best thing Jewel has done in years, in my opinion. It's not really a return to anything though, which is what a lot of her fans have been hoping for in the past few years. It's a giant leap forward. It's possibly the best thing she's done yet.

No Good in Goodbye - 5/5
I Love You Forever - 4/5
Fading - 3.5/5 (takes a while to grow on you though)
What You Are - 5/5
Bad as it Gets - 5/5 (her voice makes up for what the lyrics are lacking)
Summer Home in Your Arms - 4/5
Stay Here Forever - 4/5 (i thought i hated it at first, but it grew on me)
No More Heartaches - 3/5
One True Thing - 5/5
Ten - 5/5
Satisfied - 4/5

5.0 out of 5 stars sweet and mild June 16, 2010
Format:Audio CD
jewels' newest release is another solid one. its supposed to be "country" but falls in line with the rest of her albums (except for 1314). it's well written and the music is great. jewel is well known for her lyrics, and she doesn't disappoint. the song "fading" is my personal favourite. i opted for the regular release, but am curious enough to plan on getting the deluxe verion. i would like to hear the songs with just her and a guitar. the artwork is beautiful and the 11 songs flow by. i wish it were longer which is always a good sign. a great accessible album that i will be listening to for a long time
