Product Description

Armed with an undeniable talent, Lucy Woodward has blended a variety of influences; Soul, Rock, Pop, and other elements, into a sound that's all her own. 'While You Can', is a great example of Woodward's strong and sexy vocals with a delightfully melodic modern sound. The album marks the arrival of a captivating and irresistible new artist.

Lucy Woodward isn't just a blonde pop princess trying to jump onto the tale end of a dying medium. Oh no, this 26-year-old chanteuse has grit in her honeyed voice and scores to settle on her debut album. All 11 tracks were written or co-written by Woodward, who also had the foresight to brings in a bevy of studio ringers like Who bassist Pino Pallindo and Bob Dylan drummer Kenny Aronoff to give her fierce songs of love and willfulness the proper send-off. But Woodward ably holds her own in such elevated company: "Dumb Girls," is a self-deprecating, no holes barred look at about getting hoodwinked in the romantic wars. With lines like, "You bring out the blonde in me," you just know this man isn't ever getting a second chance. On "Trouble With Me," Woodward ponders why she's alone, while on "What's Good For Me" she knows, deciding to quit picking on herself and trust her own intuition. The daughter of an opera singer and a BBC musicologist, Woodward is bristling with talent and canny rhythmic timing, but stylistically she's still all over the map, veering between the ire of Missy Elliot and the sweet soulfulness of Sheryl Crow. Once she hones in on her own voice, she's going to be unstoppable. --Jaan Uhelszki

A very nice pop/rock debut by Lucy Woodward. The best songs on the album are: Dumb Girls, Is This Hollywood and Always Something. I actually think she could squeeze two more Top 40 hits from this debut. Her songs have nice guitar licks and just enough chord changes/modulations to make everyone happy. Her lyrics are simplistic, but they match nicely with the actual album content (not a bad thing).
I would be a shame if this album didn't got Platinum and a REAL SHAME if it didn't go Gold.

Lucy Woodward's album is a hands-down winner. I don't know exactly what I was expecting when I purchased it. "Dumb Girls" was constantly on my mind, so I picked it up and listened. It didn't grip me, not right away. "Dumb Girls" was still the best song on the album.

It grows on you, though. Song by song, you'll discover the range of this girl's talent and catchiness. The next song I grew to enjoy, "Blindsided", is a fun enough song, but Im not sure why I grew to enjoy it. Probably one of the most mediocre songs on the album.

"Trust Me (You Don't Want To See This)" is an AMAZING song! I can't get over it. It's funky, interesting, and very clever. The guitar in the beginning is what drew me in. See, a bit of background about ME (which won't really help you understand the music any) is that I listen to music while I sleep. Usually while I'm in the process of drifting towards being awake, if there's a song on I don't know, I'll typically love it. I don't know why I do this, but it happens quite frequently. It happened for this song, and now I am addicted to it. She is basically warning a potential lover to cover his eyes while she sows her wild oats. It's a fun song!

"Is This Hollywood" is my current Lucy Woodward trip. This song is powerful in it's own right. She moves across country and disjoints her life in an effort to get over a scorned love. The chorus is beautiful, haunting, and addictive.

To be honest, I haven't given the rest of the album a whole lot of listen because I dwell on those songs. I guarantee that I will soon find another song to love, just give me time.

Oh, and yeah...pick this up.

When you pop this CD in your CD player, you will probably think you recognize the raw, sturdy vocals. "Oooooh it's Sheryl Crow!". Nope, but close. "Of course it's Jewel!". Nope but even closer. It's Lucy Woodward, the newest arrival to the pop/rock genre singing her heart on the 11 songs.
None of the songs pack the same punch or deliver the message harder than "Dumb Girls" and "Blindsided". The songs, to me, are the best on the CD. They are R&B influenced and very catchy, with "Dumb Girls" being about getting dumped and trying to move on, and "Blindsided" being about being in love with someone and wondering how it happened.
Lucy Woodwards voice is surprisingly, a powerful, soulful mixture of Sheryl Crow and Pink (more of the latter) with just a drop of Christina Aguilera. It seems to me that musically, her influcences are Jewel and all those other female singer/songwriters and maybe some R&B artists. Lucy's lyrics are unique but definetely not as enigmatic and puzzling as Nelly Furtado's or No Doubt's.
However, Lucy does fall victim to some songs that sound like other artists. Mostly "Trust Me" which probably will remind you of Avril Lavigne's "Complicated" and "What Good For Me" which will also remind you of Michelle Branch's "Everywhere". Both these songs fall into the alternative/pop category.
These mishaps shouldn't steer you away from buying the CD since her voice makes up for it but be aware that while it is an excellent debut, it will be hard for her to distinguish herself from the Avrils/Vanessa Carltons/Michelle Branches/Pinks/ etc.

When i first heard the hit single "DUMB GIRLS" i wasn't really into it. But little by little i loved it! It was radically smoothing but yet so upbeat and strong! Then on April 1, 2003 my favorite cd came out! WOW! That's all i can say! This cd is just so amazing, i have heard this cd ever since everyday. And i have heard it in its entirety like 10 times. It's a really good cd! There has never been a momne thtat is dull on this cd. Personally my favorite track is "IS THIS HOLLYWOOD" but i can't really certify that beacue i love all of the songs. Every song just hooks you from the beginning and just marvels you and consumes you. Let's just hope that it goes platinum and that she comes out with a follow-up cd. Let's hope the rest of the songs get noticed!!!!!!!!!!!
My ratings:
1) DUMB GIRLS 5/5
2) BLINDSIDED 6/5 (THE NEXT SINGLE)
3) TRUST ME(YOU DON'T WANNA SEE THIS) 5/5
4) IS THIS HOLLYWOOD 6/5
5) THE TROUBLE WITH ME 4/5
6) WHAT'S GOOD FOR ME 5/5
7) STANDING 5/5
8) THE BREAKDOWN 4/5
9) ALWAYS SOMETHING 6/5
10) GETTIN IT ON 5/5
11) DONE 6/5
*her three ballads (SOMETHING ALWAYS, STANDING, AND DONE) are all amazing, i am never really attached to ballads but i am soooo attached to these beacuse they are just so beautiful and awesome. i have never seen such ballads so beautifully written*

I ordered this CD after watching the "Dumb Girls" video on VH1. I loved it, but it never came on again, so I broke down and bought this CD. I think it is wrong to try and put Lucy Woodward in one category. I am a "pop" music fan, but this isn't an album that would only appeal to that group. My friends who aren't pop fans would like this. I've listened to Avril and Michelle and all the others in the group people say she's like, and most of the songs on those albums didn't strike me. All on the songs on "While You Can" struck me on first listen. The lyrics are and rhythms are very cool. You have a few pop tracks, a few rock driven tracks. It's very good. Check it out.
