5.0 out of 5 stars My Faith is renewed..., April 30, 2007
This review is from: Back To Black (Audio CD)
Just when I was about to give up on today's new artists Amy Winehouse comes along.

I came across her on an internet radio station a few weeks ago and thought maybe she might have something to offer. A song or 2. Because surely, nobody can put together a complete CD anymore. (Maybe John Legend or Anthony Hamilton. But they even have a a questionable song or 3 on there CDs)

Wow, was I surprised. How in the world does someone this young get "it" and make "it" sound so good. Its like a flashback to when you had to be able to sing before you even thought about getting a record deal. And to get air play you really had to be something.

Well. She is SOMETHING!!!

At first I thought the reviews both from those Professional reviews and from folks like me that bought the CD were a little too gracious. Like with all of the other so called next big stars. Now I see they weren't kidding.

I mean come on. This her 2nd CD. Normally the one that everybody flops on. (At least a little) And she nailed it.

She's honest in her lyrics and she makes you feel what she's feeling. Something very few artists can do. Especially in this day and age. And she does it pretty darn well. (Parents please note that she covers adult topics. So if you let your kids listen to this make sure you explain what she's singing about and get you point across about where you stand.)

From her first CD, "Frank". (Check out "You Sent Me Flying", "Know You Now", and "No Greater Love") to the job she did on "Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow" ("Bridget Jones: The Edge Of Reason", Import Version) to this new CD. Even to the job she did with Mark Ronson on Valerie ("Version") No doubt about it, this girl can sing. (Makes you glad she stopped rapping at 10 years old.)

Not since Mary J. Blige (Or going back further, Sade) have I found a female artist that I know I'll probably be buying every album she puts out.

If you haven't guessed it by now. I really like this CD and am now a fan.

Definitely check her out...
