"Introducing Joss Stone"
Joss Stone marks her debut this week on WSVNRadio, with her third chronological release, Introducing Joss Stone. For a white female singer, she
definitely defines greatness in Rhythm & Blues and is even far better than today's common rappers, male and female. Songs from her first two albums were
getting heavy airplay, and obviously future releases would be just as good.
With the title of Introducing Joss Stone, some would think it is her debut. But not, it was her revealing that the Introducing release
would showcase "the real Joss Stone." As a soul singer, she definitely showcases this style, as well as disco, R&B, rock, funk, and even could fit some of
the hip-hop formats (but way much better).
The pretentious opening intro of "Change (Vinnie Jones Intro)" may have thrown off some critics, but don't let this intro change any final
reviews of this album... The album kicks into the opening track, "Girl They Won't Believe It" -- a great grooving song, as it's introduction can
easily be a introduction starter for radio and/or tv shows. The R&B groove continues on "Headturner," as this song could fit hip-hop formats,
but way better. It keeps going with the next tune, "Tell Me 'Bout It."
Soul fans will enjoy "Tell Me What We're Gonna Do Now," as this song has the feel of the classic "MIdnight Train To Georgia" by Gladys
Knight & The Pips. Rocking as it can get has "Put Your Hands On Me." The hip-hop feel returns on "Music," where the style of R&B fits
"Arms Of My Baby," "Bad Habit" and "Proper Nice" -- all good R&B tracks. "Bruised But Not Broken" is definitely one of the most
soulful tunes here, as it's my second favorite, next to "Put Your Hands On Me." Upbeat R&B (as on other tracks) is "Baby Baby Baby."
"What Were We Thinking" is another great, soulful, slow-styled track, and is almost gospel-ish. The "MUsic (OUtro)" closer is another R&B
Seger is still rocking these days, as he is now 69 years old. He recently rocked with the likes of John Fogerty and Bruce Springsteen. He is
currently touring, planning on releasing a new album of new material within the year 2014 or 2015. He has stated that the new album will be his "swan song"
album, as he is preparing to step down from touring and recording soon.
Joss Stone is a force to be reckoned with. She is far better than today's hip-hop and rappers. Coincidentally, if there were more singers (whether
they be white or black), belting out the style of Joss Stone, Today's Hip-Hop, R&B, and Rap would be more appreciative. Depsite the "vulgar lyrics" omitted,
it would even be better. Joss Stone sings from the heart, from her soul, and she is definitely an overlooked Diva. If you haven't experienced her first two
albums, this is a great start. Introducing Joss Stone may or may not be an actual "Introduction" to her music, but even so, it's another album
in her career, that will not disappoint the fans of Soul, Funk, R&B, Rock, even Rap.
