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.
