Why pick on a girl for taking a chance? After experiencing flagging sales, Jewel has become proactive and given herself a cosmetic and artistic makeover. But 0304 isn't the winsome songbird's first leap into the unknown. Hiring Shakira producer Lester A Mendez to give her solemn, folksy songs a pop sheen and some dance beats isn't as radical as starring as a Civil War widow in an Ang Lee film. Besides, it's a lot more interesting to hear her squeeze her chaste, malleable soprano around an accordion solo in the futuristic name-dropping fable "Intuition" or voice a beat-driven condemnation of the George W Bush regime on "America" than to see her sashaying on the silver screen in those tight bodices and hoop skirts. Although she has changed the very structure and sound of her songs, Jewel's undeniable talent shines through. She still has a way with words and her voice remains as pure as an Alaskan stream. --Jaan Uhelszki

I'm the first to admit it - the first time I heard 'Intuition' the first single release from 0304 I was mortified. I feared that Jewel had finally given in to the temptation of commercial success at the expense of artistic integrity. I'm one of Jewel's biggest fans, I've followed her since the release of the much sough after promo 'Save The Linoleum' and I could not believe this was the same artist that I have loved so much for the past 10 years.
After seeing the accompanying promotional video for 'Intuition' I realised my fears and distress were unnecessary. 'Intuition' was a taster for the new Jewel who combines her trademark social commentary and intellectual lyrics with a new found love of dance beats and rhythm. SHe hasn't sold out - she's merely learned to have fun. It was with this discovery that I listened with eager anticipation to 0304.
I was delighted with the end product. The album as a whole is perhaps Jewel's smoothest flowing and there are none of the awkward moments experienced with 'Spirit' or 'This Way'. From the catchy chorus from the powerful social commentary on opening track 'Stand' to the beautifully fragile closing track 'Becoming' it is clear that all that is different with this new Jewel is her bravery and confidence to experiment with new sounds. Lyrically the album is classic Jewel, with the exception of 'Yes U Can' and 'U + Me = Love', but musically the album shows a growth that I never expected from Jewel.
Highlights for me are the future classics 'Run 2 U', 'Sweet Temptation' and the unnerving but beautiful 'Haunted'. 0304 is an album worth checking out whether like me you've been a Jewel fan for years or you're just getting introduced to her. After this project it will interesting to see where Jewel's music goes next and I for one am already waiting to see what she surprises us with next.

This album follows Jewel's trend towards becomingly increasingly 'pop' and 'radio' oriented. This doesn't make it bad, but if you were expecting a return to her earlier style you may be disappointed. Personally, I see nothing wrong with trying to bring some worthwhile lyrics and commentary to a wider audience.
Sadly, the CD retailed by Amazon in the UK is a 'protected' version. It employs a method of protection that is incompatible with all sorts of CD players, and that significantly reduces the disc's survivability with respect to scuffs and scratches.
This disc will not play satisfactorily on most games consoles or computers. Nor will it play in quite a few car stereos. My car's Toshiba produced nothing but a foul garbled noise.
It also comes with atrocious 'pre ripped' data for computer listening that requires you to use a special crippled player, but is of such low quality that it's unacceptable anyway.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Mrs. L. Huxford on 8 July 2003
Format: Audio CD
After seeing the album cover of this album, it looked like it could be a big shock to the system, as it's appearance is very 'pop-driven' Jewel's previous works appear more sedate to both the ear and the eye. Reviews I've seen of the album discuss Jewel's dramatic change in musical direction, towards a more 'pop' genre, rather than her usual folksy/acoustic tendencies. I wasn't sure I would like it. However, the only thing that has really changed all that much is a few extra beats and danced up sounds, lyrically, it is typical of the previous work of Jewel, and I have to say I was not in the least bit disappointed, and that was upon the first listen.
Stand out tracks for me are:
Stand- this song depicts Jewel's wit as she fabricates stories with a twist of irony, it also has a tune which is incredibly catchy, so a good opener.
2 Find U- Is more indigenous of Jewel's early work lyrically, but with a 'This Way' musical background, it's beautiful and I have to confess, my favourite track, it's words drip with meaning and emotion.
Fragile- again, this track is more typical of Jewel who often sings about human nature and vulnerability in a reflective way, a good track.
Becoming- this song is about personal struggles and aspiration accompanied with a melodic tune.
Over all, this album was not the shock to the system which I got the impression it would be, it is a more polished album, and less acoustic, with the Shakira-esque sounds on the song 'intuition' which is down to the work of Shakira's producer, Lester Mendez. It is more lively muscially but exercises the same lyrical abilities of Jewel. It's good to listen to in the back ground or to turn up the volume. A treat.

If you are an avid Jewel fan, don't expect to like this CD the second you put this into your player - it took me a couple of listens (playing it in the background whilst I worked) for me to get used to it. I suspect that most fans of Jewel have very eclectic tastes in music apprecating musical and lyrical ability and skill and this album still has this in buckets- it's just a different sound, a but more commercial, but still incorporating some captivating harmonies and musical melodies. In a couple of songs she has tried to hit out against society in the same critical fashion as in 'Pieces of You' but I don't think the style suits such issues as her folky roots did. That said, the songs are still good and there are none that I'd skip whilst listening to the disc.
Jewel has described the album as a combination of dance, urban and folk and as a "modern interpretation of big band music". Not quite sure I understand that last bit or agree with her description of the music. I'd say it's a little bit poppy, with a decent beat, cheerful with a bit of pace, but nothing like the music you might expect to hear in the clubs but could still dance round the house to - oh, and an album closet Jewel fans would be unafraid to let their friends hear (whether they like R'n'B, trance, dance, urban, pop etc. etc.).
