Living in The USA the new Jewel CD was available to me early and in just two weeks it is one of my favorites! If you like female singer/songwriters who make music full of melody and beautiful arrangments this is for you! This CD is the closest thing to sitting in a darkened coffee house listening to an artists thoughts, voice, and stories. The first single "Standing Still" is a classic sing along (watch out for the gorgeous videoclip also!), this CD is deep with potential hits. If you liked her heartbreaking songs such as "Hands" and "You Were Meant For Me" then you will LOVE "Break Me", a simple yet elegant ballad. "I Won't Walk Away" sounds like it was recorded in a piano bar, "Jesus Loves You" rocks softly with lyrics that will make you think and smile, and "Love Me, Just Leave Me Alone" just plain rocks! Do not miss this great CD full of beauty and truth.

I bought this CD with no knowledge of Jewel's songs - I just felt like buying a random CD and seeing what it was like, and so this was what I chose and I am so glad that I did.
This CD has become my favourite.
I especially love the songs, Standing Still, This Way and my fave of all; Sometimes It Be That Way.
I can pretty much listen to all of this album without having to skip any tracks. It's an excellent, excellent album and I cannot reccommend it enough!

As a huge Jewel fan this offering did not disappoint me. Miss Kilcher's reflective, often quirky lyrics, set to her unique guitar sound encompass every human emotion. Break Me, for example, can only be described as truly beautiful, while This Way is a candidate for the no.1 single slot. Why oh why has she not received the acclaim that she deserves from this side of the Atlantic? She's massive in the USA, but gets little recognition here in Britain. I recently saw here in concert in Birmingham. She simultaneously fills the heart with joy, sorrow & wonder. She has the most beautiful voice I have ever heard.
I'm fan of a great many artists, covering a wide range from Pink Floyd to Motown, but since I got This Way in March it has not been off the stereo or the car cassette player. This album is a must for all true music lovers.

I can't understand why some critics slated this fourth album of Jewel's. The first song I heard from it was 'Standing still' on the radio, and although the beat was a modern addition to her usual style, the song really worked, while still retaining her soulfull lyrics and 'one girl and her guitar' style. 'Break me' is such a beautiful song- one of my all-time favourites that just sums up being in love. 'This way' is also a lovely up beat tune reminiscent of her early days, as is 'Grey matter' which is performed Live; Jewel at her best. In the same vein, 'Sometimes it be that way' is a fantastic architypal Jewel song, with feisty, sardonic lyrics -"Well I'm sorry if my heart breaking ruined your day..." and accoustic riffs. Those critics who slated this album should be ASHAMED of themselves...This is Jewel- enjoy!

Thanks to Amazon, I was lucky enough to get this imported 2 weeks ago.
As I am a huge Jewel follower, I couldnt wait any longer to get my hands on this, and Im glad I didnt wait till February.
It opens up with the highly infectious, successful American release, "Standing Still". Then you are unawaringly whisked away into Jewel's Little World with her admiringly original lyrics fitted alongside perfectly with her guitar strums!
Stand-out tracks for me would have to be the tear-jerking "Break Me", the Country and Western layered "Love Me, Just Leave Me Alone" and "Standing Still". No matter what, every song on here has its moment.
I just wish she would be more successful over this side of the world for more people to appreciate her strong never-ending talents!

This is the first of Jewel's albums that I've bought but it won't be the last. It really has to be the best album that I have heard in a long time. In the few days since I bought it, I have just played it again and again and again (how many albums can you say that about?)
It begins with a pop-classic, 'Standing Still', and manages to maintain the high standard throughout. Some of the songs on here remind me of Sheryl Crow, others remind me of the Corrs and others of Lene Marlin, yet Jewel out-does them all!
Stand out tracks for me are: 'Standing Still', 'Everybody Needs Someone Sometime', 'Break Me', 'Cleveland' and 'The New Wild West'.
An absolute classic!

Dann Huff and his chums Jerry McPherson and Jimmie Sloas, who have previously collaborated on creating Amy Grant's cool rock sounds as well as many others - with layers of groovy electric guitars and memorable bass lines - brought their unique style to This Way, and together with Jewel's concise and intelligent lyrics and mesmerising voice make this a terrific sounding album. It has more variation than her previous works, a rockier feel, and while that might put off some fans who preferred her folk style, as it loses some of the raw edge, I think this is a natural progression from her earlier material.

Another nice feature of this album is a brief note from Jewel on every song, whether it be how she was feeling when she was singing it or what inspired the lyrics, I think it's a nice touch that gives you a more personal connection to her work. Sometimes it's too easy as fans to listen to music and form an opinion based solely upon the end result, and not appreciate the blood, sweat and tears that might have gone into producing it. This is of course, the nature of all art, and the key to fully appreciating it, by digging a little beneath the surface. Jewel certainly makes it easy for you to do that.

This Way feels very personal, and not just because of the inlay notes. I have tingles down my spine almost every song - the way Jewel sings with such conviction and emotion, her choice of words, her wonderful and simple melodies, and Dann Huff's experienced production, results in an excellent example of how to push music into a new genre without betraying your roots. Rock on Jewel !
