4.0 out of 5 stars Not great, but much better than expected., October 11, 2006
This review is from: Sinner (Audio CD)
Joan Jett had not released an official world wide release album in about 12 years. There had been a couple of unofficial releases over the years but they only came out in Japan (Naked and Fetish which was actually more of a collection of her more sexualized songs).

Her new album Sinner sees her re-releasing/re-recording some of the tracks off of Naked as well as some of the new cuts off of Fetish in addition to some new material.

How does it stack up?

Pretty good actually. While the album doesn't quite hold up quite as well as a lot of her classic 80's material, for the most part, this release sees Joan venturing forth with her trademark sound, tough (and sexy) vocals, sexually ambiguous lyrics and kicking guitar work. Considering that she's not 48 years old, it literally sounds like she hasn't aged at all.

Her backing band sounds great as well. The production is crystal clear and everything has a really nice rocking bite to it.

While some hardcore fans might be upset that they already have some of these songs already from Naked and Fetish, for the more casual fan like myself, this album is a really enjoyable listen.

There are only about 2 or 3 cuts that are a bit fillerish, but overall, this is just a great no-nonsense rock album like a lot of people don't make anymore. While this album doesn't really advance her sound any, it still shows her doing what she does best when she really puts her mind/heart to it.

I recommend getting this and her greatest hits CD Fit to be Tied and that'll be pretty much all the Joan Jett that you'll need.

Hopefully she won't take 12 years to come out with another release. Sinner shows that this sexy woman still has quite a lot to say.
