Product Description

Product Description

Jessie J’s debut album Who You Are repackaged as a special Platinum Edition. As well as the massive hits "Price Tag" featuring B.o.B, "Do it Like A Dude", "Nobody’s Perfect", "Who’s Laughing Now" and "Who You Are", it includes brand new tracks "Domino", "My Shadow" and "Laserlight".

Who You Are
is the debut album from London's Jessie J (real name Jessica Cornish), winner of the prestigious Brits Critic's Choice and BBC Sound of 2011 awards. Before releasing her debut single "Do it Like a Dude", Jessie had already written songs for the likes of Justin Timberlake, Alicia Keys and Christina Aguilera. The album includes the singles "Price Tag" (featuring B.o.B.) and "Do it Like a Dude".

BBC Review

It’s all well and good having a multi-octave voice, but without control it’s an accident waiting to happen. Jessie J – born Jessica Cornish in Redbridge – rushes up and down her scales on this anticipated debut album; but there’s more than one occasion where her fluctuating pitch is a pain in the ear.

The frustration doesn’t end there. As evidenced by her breakthrough debut single, Do It Like a Dude, Cornish has an annoying habit of inserting zany tics where songs would benefit from being played straighter (one Ke$ha is quite enough, thanks). A pretty acoustic ballad, Big White Room – recorded live, applause included – is ruined by unnecessary gymnastics. A shame, as when she’s not overreaching Cornish showcases sweet, if unspectacular, vocals.

The songs of Who You Are are expectedly split between slower, slushier affairs and punchy anthems for bolshy teens, those coming to this collection off the back of Do It Like a Dude. If modern pop-lore is to be believed, said track was originally written with Rihanna in mind (Cornish has a background in co-writing material for other artists). While the decision to keep it makes it clear Who’s Laughing Now (more bad-attitude swagger), it’s a lightweight Rude Boy rip-off masquerading as confrontational thug-pop. Hearing a BRIT School girl from London’s suburbs deliver lines derived from Caribbean slang is uncomfortable, and in terms of female empowerment the lyrics make Alexandra Burke’s Broken Heels sound like Independent Women Part 1.

Mamma Knows Best brings a big-band-trapped-in-a-synthesizer sound to the fore, more Pixie Lott than Ain’t No Other Man-period Christina Aguilera. Better is the following L.O.V.E., which walks the line between affecting and aggressive superbly, Cornish’s snarl balanced by a tender side that rarely makes an appearance; if one could squint their ears, it’d be a ringer for something from The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill (and that’s serious praise). The title-track returns Cornish to an acoustic accompaniment, and makes for a fine closer – it’s her Hometown Glory, without the raw emotion but touching nonetheless.

With Cornish’s profile at a high and awards in the bag, Who You Are is a guaranteed commercial hit. What it’s not, though, is a collection that confirms the arrival of a significant solo talent. It’s too patchy, too hurried, the powers behind it too eager to capitalise on the artist’s current chart success. There’s ample room for improvement, but given the well-documented hurdles Cornish has already overcome one shouldn’t write her off just yet. When the pressure’s lifted, she could conjure up a classic.

Format: Audio CD
Better late than never. This Old Wolf that is! Jessica Cornish
seems to have arrived at exactly the right time. I heard the
singles; I saw the music videos; I liked what I'd heard and seen.
What I hadn't been quite prepared for with the debut album is
just what an extraordinarily good singer Ms J. is. World Class
at 23 and then some! I didn't need to listen much futher than the
live recording of 'Big White Room'. The room errupts with amazement
and palpable affection. I shouted too (much to Mrs Wolf's surprise!)
It is a phenomenal performance by any standard known to man or beast!

The magic doesn't stop there however. Ms J. knows how to write a good
tune and there are thirteen of them here. This girl has SOUL. Natural,
abundant and free as the wind. The voice is wonderfully flexible and
unaffected. 'Casualty Of Love' is another terrific example of her
ability to find the heart of a song and run with it; the glorious
arabesques and decorations spin out into the air like silver fireworks.
It's very clear that she doesn't have to think about it that much :
it just comes out that way! (To think that this is just the beginning!)

I tend to gravitate towards the ballads and torch songs in any R&B
collection but there's one heck of a lot of funky fun to be had here too.

Of the uptempo numbers 'Who's Laughing Now' is a particularly feisty
example. It's pretty near impossible not to get out of your rocking
chair, kick off your slippers and dance! Ms J. demonstrates her razor
sharp larynx and wit to fine effect. So too with 'Do It Like A Dude'.

The stupendous retro burlesque shenanigans of 'Mamma Know's Best'
gives Ms Aguilera a run for her money.

Jessie's best album, this is packed full of hit singles!

1. Price Tag (featuring B.o.B) 10/10
One of my favourite songs of all time, super catchy and addictive.

2. Nobody's Perfect 10/10
Powerful and raw, a stunning track

3. Abracadabra 10/10
So fun and careless, love it

4. Big White Room (Live) 10/10
The first single Jessie ever wrote (on her own too)! It still sounds amazing especially for a live recording

5. Casualty Of Love 10/10
You just have to love this R&B jam, it throws it back to the likes of classic singles by Destiny's Child, Whitney Houston and Alicia Keys

6. Rainbow 10/10
This has a great message and is totally care free. You can feel the energy Jess had when recording by listening to this!

7. Who's Laughing Now 10/10
A great way to get back at the school bullies, brilliant song

8. Do It Like A Dude 10/10
Jessie's début single, it's timeless and edgy. Instant hit

9. Mamma Knows Best 10/10
This features Jessie's powerful vocals in a slight jazz style reminiscent of Christina Aguilera's album Back To Basics

10. L.O.V.E 9/10
A great message and another great song

11. Stand Up 10/10
Similar to Rainbow, a fun message to a brilliant melody

12. I Need This 9/10
Jessie originally wrote this and sent it to Chris Brown who has a version on his album too. Personally I think Jessie's version is much better!

13. Who You Are 10/10
The most personal and beautiful song on the entire record, you can feel the raw emotion on this track like in Demi Lovato's hit Skyscraper

My daughter asked for this album and I was wary as I expected it to have some bad language in, I checked online and found no warning so ordered it. As I wasn't convinced I listened to the album myself once it arrived to find too much bad language to consider allowing my 9 year old to have the album, that aside it is a great listen, just not while the kiddies are around :o)

`Price Tag' is an absolutely brilliant song which is probably worth about two and a half times whatever you pay for this album, so it doesn't really matter what the rest of the album is like, as a plus point though the rest of the album is quite pleasant so you won't be left with twelve duff tracks (although this type of music is probably one where people buy singles rather than whole albums, so it probably wouldn't matter either way).

The music is bass heavy, minimalist pop, produced to death so it ends up being almost irritatingly shiny; in a chemical cillet bang kind of way, which in truth is designed to stay out of the way while the vocalist does her thing, luckily her `thing' is quite good and keeps you listening, sure occasionally your attention wonders but when you snap back you are greeted with a nice voice `Big White Room' is a particularly good highlight especially with its interesting touches to the vocals.

Jessie J is pop with a message (mostly) check out `Rainbow' for proof.
