Biography

Joss Stone has been obsessed with soul music since she was a little girl. By the time she was in her early teens she had begun to intuitively hone her now trademark gravelly-but-lustrous vocals by singing along to Aretha’s Franklin’s Greatest Hits. She began pursuing a singing career at thirteen, securing a record deal at 15, and recording her star-making debut album, The Soul ... Read more in Amazon's Joss Stone Store

Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

Stone's debut delved back into the deep Southern roots of the 1970s, but now Mind, Body & Soul is dedicated to original material. Joss features as co-writer on nearly all of its songs, with veteran singer Betty Wright still retaining a strong influence as co-producer and vocal coach. Stone's old-style grittiness remains intact, but there are moves to surround her emotive voice with a modernised R&B setting. Stone's highly respected team includes keyboardists Benny Lattimore and Timmy Thomas, and drummers Cindy Blackman and ?uestlove (from The Roots). Joss has also collaborated with Lamont Dozier and Portishead's Beth Gibbons. The opening "Right To Be Wrong" lays down the gauntlet of independence, riddled with pricking guitar fills, surging organ and subtle horn swells. The banal "Jet Lag" and "Understand" are her least inspiring efforts, the latter featuring some of the album's worst lines ("I keep our song on repeat/On my iPod, even when I sleep/And in my dream I'm holding you/Alone on an island, just we two"). Stone's lyrics are trite throughout, but they're merely a vehicle for her intense vocal expression. Several tunes are spoiled by clumping drum programs, but even within this context, Stone's voice rises higher. The album's first single, "You Had Me", could be coming straight from Destiny's Child. The compulsive reggae lope of "Less Is More" would be a wiser choice. "Security" might be an MOR ballad, but even this ascends towards its conclusion--Stone backed up by an incendiary guitar solo. Her voice is always mixed suitably high, and ultimately it's Stone's sheer vocal prowess that makes this album succeed. --Martin Longley

Format:Audio CD
As a young teenager, Joscelyn Stoker was rejected by many record companies, most of which said that there was no way that they would sign up a young white girl with the voice of a mature black woman. She then fell at the door of S-Curve Records boss Steve Greenberg who took a gamble with her. With a new name and her own unique style, Joss Stone exploded onto the popular and soul music scene with her own take on The White Stripes' Fell In Love With A Girl and more importantly, her debut album The Soul Sessions. Although the album received some praise, it was recorded in four days and contained mostly cover versions. For her second album, Joss Stone has had the chance to take her time and ensure that the album really displays her stunning musical talents.
Mind, Body & Soul starts off well but slightly deteriorates as the album progresses. The reason for this being that like so many other albums, all the singles have been placed at the start of the album leaving us with a very unbalanced set of music. The album in general displays varying styles and adaptations of popular and soul music and has a consistently strong set of songs throughout despite one. Right To Be Wrong and Spoiled are beautiful, mellow songs which show signs of being inspired by Aretha Franklin. Don't Cha Wanna Ride wavers towards the James Brown style of soul and despite its interpretation by the more perverted listener, has no metaphorical message whatsoever. Jet Lag, Security, Young At Heart and Killing Time are all entertaining songs that just don't quite top the ones mentioned earlier. Unfortunately, there also has to be a negative side to the album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome follow up! 17 Jun 2005
Format:Audio CD
Joss Stone is, hands down, one of the most talented young vocalists of our generation. This follow up album is absolutely superb. She sings from the heart with a passion and conviction which belies her young age.
Songs like "You had me" are so gutsy and inspiring, it is impossible not to feel empowered by them. My favourite is the passionate "Young at heart" about her love for a partner of whom no one approves - wow!! Really uplifting - you go girl!
Stellar effort, Joss - long may it continue!

5.0 out of 5 stars Stone Free 2 Jun 2005
Format:Audio CD
Possibly one of the most talented voices of the last decade, this album is crammed with feeling and emotion; I don't really listen to music from singers now but this collection of songs made me sit up and listen; such a great talent from someone so young.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stone is Pure Gold 8 Jan 2005
Format:Audio CD
One of the quickest success stories in music during 2004 was that of Joss Stone. She burst onto the scene with her album of cover versions "Soul Sessions", which broke the platinum mark and declared to the world [litterally, since she's one of the few UK acts to make it big in America] "Joss Stone Has Arrived!". This release, her first of new material does not dissapoint, and proves any of those short sighted enough to label her a "studio girl" or "one album wonder" totally wrong. This is a mature, smooth and sincere collection of songs, that, given Stone's relatively young age, are a wonder.
The LP begins with the second single lifted from it, "Right To Be Wrong". Nice lyrics and decent arrangement make it very radio friendly, but it wouldn't have been my choice for single. "Jet Lag" is mellow and chilled, but doesn't really go anywhere. Nice track, though. "You Had Me", the biggest impacter on the album, which was rightly the first single, could have been performed by any American R&B/Hip-Hop artist and is a female-empowerment fuelled track about the end of a relationship that litterally jumps out of the speakers and slaps you round the face. Fast Paced and Fabulous! "Spoiled", like "Jet Lag" has a nice vibe but fails to lift itself above the easy listening mark. "Don't Cha Wanna Ride" is another big hit in the making that contains a killer hook and some vocals by Stone that are simply sublime. Wonderful stuff. "Less Is More" is understated and bare in it's arrangement, and although it hits the spot, it's not one of my favourites. "Security" is a very beautiful track. It requires a few listens to be truly appreciated, but the small ammount of time invested in it are worth it.

3.0 out of 5 stars I'm lost 5 May 2007
By bugrit
Format:Audio CD
The hype surrounding Ms Stone led me to buy this album and I have to say that it's a remarkable achievement for one so young.

For someone like me, an oldie brought up on Billie, Ella and Nina, Joss has a remarkable voice and a great deal of potential but I have to say that it's a potential that hasn't been fulfilled yet. How could it be, when she's still just a kid?

Usually, I don't review stuff that I don't like much - one man's meat is another man's poison and all that. However, I feel that it's time to try to apply the brakes to the Joss Stone bandwagon, at least until such time as she grabs her first standard and makes it her own. What I mean is she has to get hold of something like Nat King Cole's "Let there be Love" or Ella's "Bewitched" or Billie's "My man" or Peggy Lee's "Fever" or even Cyndie Lauper's "Time after time" and then she has to make it her own, irrevocably and for all time. Until she does that, she's a will-be.

That's better than a has-been, but it's not all that great, either.
