Editorial Reviews

2009 album from the British Hip Hop/Grime MC. If there is one theme running through the magical existence of Lady Sovereign, then it's that of being a fiercely independent creative spirit who, one way or another, was born to be different. From grasping her unique talent for rolling her tongue around words at the tender age of 13 to selling over a million units of her single, 'Love Me Or Hate Me'; the story of Sov's charmed life is one of stellar achievement against a backdrop of the most unlikely of circumstances. Features the singles 'I Got You Dancing' and 'So Human'.

On this album Lady Sovereign shows she has nothing to prove as the beats and the rhymes are toned down to reach an audience like me, people who don't care about music videos.

I loved Public Warning, because it was a very funny album, but this album showed signs of Sov maturing and gettting away fron Def Jam's image.

So Human and Pennies will always be my favorite songs but I still love and listen to the whole album.

I did not know what to expect when I first heard lady Sovereign, I had no preconceived notions, no idea really what I was going to hear. But, on a whim I purchased Public Warning, and after listening I was glad I did. the songs had great beats, catchy hooks and vocals that were both strong and unique, I don't mind her accent like some seem to. So with that said, I did have expectations going into this album that I didn't with the first. And for the larger part I was not disappointed, as many of the songs are more catchier than on her previous album (which is saying a lot) though at times she always seems to force the hook or she seems over-reliant on the hook that it takes away from the over all song. Her lyrics tend to be more vulnerable on this album. Where she was more in-your-face on the first album (such as on love me or hate me) here she seems quite content with wearing her heart on her sleeve. So Human and Guitar seems to be her strongest efforts on here. While Student Union Bar seems a bit aimless. But, overall I really was impressed with what I got, and the price was very nice too. It will be interesting to see where she will go from here. I look forward to her next album. But, in the meantime enjoy this one...

Format: Audio CD Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
An extremely disappointing follow-up to Lady Sovereign's fantastic debut album "Public Warning" (which ultimately was a compilation of earlier Lady Sovereign EPs and singles, with a few new tracks thrown in for good measure), it appears that Def Jam may actually have been justified in dropping the self-proclaimed "biggest midget in the game" from its line-up after only one critically-acclaimed album.

While Lady Sovereign herself is in fine enough form, the music from returning producer Medasyn feels lazy, weakly-constructed and uninspired. Even when sampling from tried-and-true hit singles like The Cure's "Close To Me", the songs feel generic, thin and unmemorable, with not a single note-worthy hook on the entire album. Even music aficionados who enjoy 80's synth and grime (the two most prominent musical styles on the album) will find this album forgettable.

It appears that, in producing an entire album all at once rather than just focusing on a few singles at a time, Medasyn has bit off more than he could musically chew... either that, or he simply ran out of steam.

All in all, for hardcore fans only.

Lady Sovereign makes some awesome music! It is not exactly rap/hip-hop, as it has a much more up-beat tone, and change in sound. Instead of having a constant mundane beat that gets old after listening to it over and over, there is a lot of change in the tone. I think part of what I like about her music is the way she changes her voice's tone a lot, which adds to the music. All of this combined make for music that does not have the pattern of an over-used chorus. Most choruses are delightful, and catchy in Lady Sovereign's music.

The music is more jovial, and has a happier tune in comparison to most. The lyrics can be described as "cute" and "fun" instead of the normal and more serious type of lyrics that tend to revolve around romance, love, or a hard life found in most music. The accent also gives the music a different feel, and makes it stand out against the rest of my collection as a unique sounding masterpiece. Definitely a pleasure to listen to!

For her age (24), Lady Sovereign has already accomplished allot in her career. Despite being young, white, and British, Sovereign is the first foreign female artist signed by Def-Jam records. Jigsaw is her second album.

Sovereign definitely has a different sound than most American rappers. Her sound is a little poppy (somewhat like the Veronicas), a little techno, and of course a little hip-hop. Her newest Album, Jigsaw is listenable, but I found it a bit stale by track 4. The problem is that her songs all kinda sound the same. My favorite tracks are 2 (So Human)and 7 (Guitar), which also seem to be the most distinctive tracks on the album.

In sum, Jigsaw is listenable and has some good songs for dancing, but I wouldn't pay more that 8 dollars for it.

With "Jigsaw," listeners can tell that Lady Sovereign's still a little lost as to what kind of music she wants to make.

Lady Sovereign has always dangerously straddled the line between rap and dance club music. "Jigsaw" marks a change of pace, in which the British rap star decided to switch to M.I.A. style rap and dance music.

But Lady Sovereign is not exactly as original or as fresh as M.I.A. Sure, her first song is a hot tune with hard-hitting club beats and squeeking electronic sounds. Sovereign sounds pretty sexy singing in a low alto "I'm weird and you're weird/Let's be mates."

Her next song, however, is a little flat. She raps to some really cheap synthesizer sample of "Close To Me." And with weird lyrics such as "And when the beat went on, and it really ain't f***in' hot enough/You should've seen me runnin' out the studio like Forrest Gump", she really just doesn't do her original sample justice.

Sometimes Sov tries to sing like a diva, as in the title track "Jigsaw," but it doesn't work. Her vocal work is decent at best, but it sounds so out of place with the cheap rock beat and the dull string ensemble in the background.

Finally, listeners will get really tired of her cheesy vocal effects. It's tiring to listen to Sov say "doin' it" with that scratchy low vocoder effect for the twenty-umpteenth time in "I Got You Dancing."

It's a shame, because she has quite a lot to say in her album. There's nothing more irresistable that her song "Pennies," in which she sings "How many pennies have been gone from me?" to a bumping dance beat and some funky wah-wah synthesizers.

Still, Sov's album sounds decent for a rap/dance album. Sure, Sov is definitely no M.I.A., but she still sounds reasonably cool and sexy on "Jigsaw." She just doesn't sound great.
