Tracks like “Wake Up Alone”, “He Can Only Hold Her”, “You Know I’m No Good”, “Me & Mr. Jones”, and “Back To Black” layer Amy’s deep, rich vocals over retro- jazz, pop, doo-wop, and soul. While songs like “Some Unholy War”, “Just Friends”, and “Tears Dry on Their Own” have more of a modern spin. Then there’s “Addicted” and “Rehab”, which combine classic R&B melodies and sincere vocals with funny lyrics about buying weed and Amy’s refusal to get sober.
I’ve been unable contact Amy or her label to ask permission to share an mp3, but you can hear samples at Amy Winehouse’s Official Site and MySpace page. I truly think that anyone with good taste in music coupled with a twisted sense of humour would love this album.
