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.
