Product Description

U.K. vocalist Joss Stone will return this spring with her third album, "Introducing Joss Stone." Due March 20 via Virgin, the set was produced by Raphael Saadiq and features guest turns by Common ("Tell Me What We're Going To Do") and Lauryn Hill ("Music"). Other songs set to appear on the album include "Headturner," "Tell Me What We're Gonna Do Now," "Tell Me 'Bout It," "Nothing Better Than (The iPod Song)" and "I Wish I Never Met You." Additional contributions were provided by rapper/producer Novel (Kelis, India.Arie) and Beau Dozier, the son of Motown titan Lamont Dozier. "Introducing" is the follow-up to 2004's "Mind, Body & Soul," which debuted at No. 11 on The Billboard 200 and has sold more than 1.2 million copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

In the run-up to this, her third album, Joss Stone told a phalanx of glossy magazines that the difference between this disc and the two that preceded it was a newfound clarity of vision. Whereas the other records--their gold status notwithstanding--represented the fumblings of a huge-voiced kid being bossed around by experienced music-biz types, this one, she promised, would reveal the real her. Thus, the titular "introduction." To which anybody who spins the 14 groovy and fully unbuttoned tracks herein will wish to reply not "nice to meet you"--far too lame a sentiment for so fully realized a disc--but "Where have you been all my life?" As good as Joss Stone's previous efforts are, Introducing Joss Stone represents a giant step forward: there's a freshness to these songs that suits her age (19 as of the album's release) and a funkiness that suits modern pop sensibilities. There's also a cross-hatching of visions with artists like Lauryn Hill and Common that will rightly advance her reputation as an artist who can sling disco, R&B, and rock almost as convincingly as soul. Splicing girl-group harmonies with blaxploitation-style funk with Joplin-esque and, at times, Shelby Lynne-reminiscent vocals, Stone works these Raphael Saadiq-produced beats with the stealth and steadiness of a '70s-era legend who's still going strong. "Girl They Won't Believe It," she wails against the tight hoo-hoo harmonizing of talented backup singers on the opening track; get a load of how much she's accomplished in the space of three albums, and you won't believe it, either. --Tammy La Gorce

By Erika Borsos VINE VOICE on June 14, 2008
Format: Audio CD
Joss Stone is an original. Her gritty, visceral, sensual voice is unforgettable. It is amazing to hear a young, white British female vocalist sing R & B. I first heard Joss Stone in July 2007 during the special televised fund-raiser sponsored by Prince William and Prince Harry on behalf of Princess Diana on her birthday. Next, I heard Joss Stone sing "Put Your Hands on Me" on Jimmy Kimmel Live. It was then I knew I had to buy some of her music.

My favorite tracks on this CD are: "Tell Me 'bout It", "Put Your Hands on Me", "Baby, Baby, Baby", "Tell Me What We Gonna Do Now", "Bruised but not Broken", and "What Were We Thinking". Most of the lyrics are written by Joss Stone and Rapheal Saddiq (one of the muscians) which proves she is multi-talented and creative. Her down-to-earth, tell-it-like-it-is style is highly appealing. Her smoky, sultry voice is unforgettable. I deduct one star for the Intro called "Change" done by Vinnie Jones which detracts from quality of the CD. It is a turn off and does not set a good example for the contents of the CD, most of which is excellent. Erika Borsos [pepper flower]

Joss Stone is back with a transatlantic accent, in both her spoken and singing voice.
It is clear from the outset that this artist is desperate for the world to know, this is the "new" her. .
Featuring a pretentious intro by Vinnie Jones, the Devon lass is implying that she is now a ballsy soul star with a new sound. The red hair and tattoo on the front cover hammers this home, in case you didn't know already.
Her voice still has all the right moves, although she has started to do the 'Mariah thing' - in that each note is stretched to breaking point, taking the energy and replacing it with a 'hear me now' wail.
Lauryn Hill from the Fugees makes special guest appearance on one of the 14 new tracks.
So much so that a line "Watch Me Walk" sounds like "Watch me wail." The single "Tell Me Bout It" out has a touch of the old skool about it, but for all the hype - it is begged and borrowed rather than 'new'.
There is the odd gem which stirs you, like "Tell Me What We're Gonna Do Now" in which the soulstress is more restrained and these tracks benefit from this as they have heart.
But too often, the album tries to be all things to all people. So we end up with a little of Janis Joplin, Mariah, Whitney, Aretha and many other great female singers. Imitation is flattering for these women.
But it also means that the real Joss Stone needs to stand up.
This begs the question, if we are being introduced to this soul star for the first time, who is she?

Neo-Soul Singer Joss Stone is not like others, she's white, she's British and born in 1987 she's young enough to be the daughter or even grand-daughter of the likes of Aretha Franklin and Diana Ross. But she's a young girl with a big voice and she always tried to be faithful to the original 60's soul without alot of adcanced productions like most others do. Debut album titled "The Soul Sessions" a album with only covers was released when she was only 16 and became a smash hit. Joss powerful soulvoice seduced millions of people and she had gained an audience and a great reputation almost instantly. Second album "Mind Body and Soul" followed the same trends of her debut but didn't have any covers included. However, all of the songs had the sound of 60's music even if they were newly penned originals, some even by herself. On her third album titled "Introducing Joss Stone" she claimes this is the real Joss Stone where she can finally do what she wants without record pressure and thus introducing the real Joss Stone as an music artist. This raises an interesting question though. What was the other critically aclaimed albums? and is this really that much diffrent from the other two?. The first question is impossible to answer unless you're Joss Stone but the second is simple if you've listened to this album. No, it really isn't that diffrent then her others. What makes it diffrent is that Neo-Soul singer/producer Raphael Saadiq produced it and thus introducing advcanced studio recording equipments instead of the session musicians with live instruments she used on previous albums. The sound is diffrent and much more modern now. obviously Ms. Stone wanted to apply to a younger more contemporary audience and sound like a girl from 2007 and not 1967 and give Xstina a run for the money.Read more ›

Joss Stone is back with a new album this year. When i first found that out I was scared. Sure she has an amazing voice. But her last CD was so boring. She speeds it up a lot on this one with a great collection. Neo 60's soul with some pop fushion. Great CD.

The key tracks are: Put Your Hands One Me, Tell Me Bout' It, Girl They Won't Believe It.

This girl is new and real! Living in the US I am over Christina, Brit, Fergie, and oh so over Mariah. We are left with the amazing Alicia Keys to provide us quality music. Then comes Joss. She sounds just as amazing live as she does recorded. I don't care if she is sampling old school music and artist. IT SOUNDS GOOD! WE LIKE IT! I can put on her CD's and just get lost in her voice. I hope she kepts up her sound and doesn't sell out and become a pop tart!
