I loved Finally Woken - it was a wonderful first album full of naivety and exciting bass led tracks with the soft tones of Jem herself lulling you into warmth and security. It was fresh and exciting.

After a long break (4 unexplained years), and the inability to buy the CD in the UK, I tracked it down (on Amazon) as an Import from the US!!! (This girl is Welsh. Why isn't her album available in the UK?)

Down To Earth - rammed into my CD player and pressing play even as the draw is still closing - does not deliver the same quality however. Jem's orginality on Finally Woken is not matched here at all.

The first half of the album does have some good tracks "Down To Earth" (although it starts ponderously) promises some good things for the rest of the album with a softer base line, but it is still there. "Crazy" has a decidedly American feel to it, complete with banjo, which doesn't help as a second track on the album. "I Want You To..." is a fair track which harks back to a simpler time, but given a nice twist in its vocals that works well. "It's Amazing" is a competent track which is well produced but a little dull and monotonous, perhaps a little bland in a Dido vein. It is catchy in places, but I really think it suffers from being overly produced as it seems to have lost its heart somewhere along the line. "Keep On Walkng" is again in the same vein, but this time with the voice scratched up vynil style in an effort to differentiate it. "You Will Make It" is a long and self indulgent song that sounds like sonething composed specifically 9/11. It is reasonably sickly sweet, but with its piano and lone vocals it is barren and not in the least uplifting. "I Always Knew" is a return to former glory with great things going on with strings, bells and claps.

I largely agree with J.C. Howell's review. I too eagerly awaited a follow-up to Finally Woken, ordered this without hesitation and then...well it's nice. Nice is such a bland word, and it is largely a bland album. Yup, Dido all over. I know certain tracks have been featured as incidental music on various US dramas, which didn't put me off (so has Imogen Heap, and she delivers the goods rather better). However, with the exception if 'It's Amazing' and 'I always knew', none of these deserve to be anything more than background. Oh, and what on earth happened with 'Aciid!'? It's truly horrible, always skipped on my CD player and (as a Britney fan) comparable to Britney only if you prefer the dodgy bits of 'In the Zone' to tracks like 'Toxic'. Come on Jem, get back to the greatness of Finally Woken!

There has been a long and mostly unexplained wait (4 years?) for Jem's second album; proposed release dates came and went. The question - Was it worth waiting for? The answer - Yes - probably. D-T-E is more musical and has a slightly more American twang then Finally Woken which was impossible to stop playing. It is another polished performance from the Welsh Songstress but unfortunately it also seems a bit more annonymous. One thing missing (or different) from D-T-E is the subtle bass that featured on some of the first albums tracks. This CD whilst partly a more clever production misses the 5 star debut aural sensation that riveted your ears to the speakers. This is slightly softer and more complex but I prefer the simple loud and rough buttons so it may be a bit too subtle and nice for me.

However, it is a very good CD that is not helped by the scant marketing. It is a relatively expensive import that is currently Out of Stock (again) on Amazon UK. The songs have already been lifted by some movies so why this belated album is hard to find is not understood.
If this is your first Jem CD, try Finally Woken first. Or, just get both.
They are worthy additions to your music collection.

I love Finally Woken, and was really looking forward to the release of this new album. Unfortunately it's very poor in comparison. Nothing more to say really, other than this is the difficult second album. Hopefully number three will be an improvment.

I found this album whilst searching for dinner party background music and I'm very glad I did, I'm surprised I've not heard of her before because she is a very talented singer and I will be buying more of her albums. Great!

I like her music, so of course I like the CD! Only thing that was a shame is that it was one of these cardboard ones. Furthermore, it is slightly wider than a normal jewel case so it doesn't fit in a CD holder!

Great second album by an exciting new artist. A worthy follow-up to 'Finally Woken'. More catchy and memorable songs. A+++++ rating.

There's no other word for it - Jem sparkles in this long awaited follow up to her 2004 debut album Finally Woken.

Her music will be familiar to fans of popular shows such as Grey's Anatomy, The OC, 24, Six Feet Under, Gossip Girl and others, as well as the movies Eragon and $ex and the City, as it seems that music by this talented Welsh singer/songwriter is just about everywhere you turn.

This album is an interesting mix of musical genres - funk, latin, and pop, among others. On one track she sings with South African singer/songwriter Vusi Mahlasela, and in others she sings in Japanese and Spanish.

The singles so far are the brilliant "So Amazing" (from the movie $ex and the City); the retro-funky "Crazy" (from Gossip Girl) and "I Always Knew" (from 90210)

Watch for possible singles in the Latin beat track "I Want You to.." (think Shakira); the inspirational "Keep On Walking"; the peppy dance track "Aciiid!" (think Britney when she's on form) and the mellow "And So I Pray" and "On Top of the World".

All the tracks are co-written by Jem (Jemma Griffiths), and every track is a winner. Highly recommended for just about everybody.
