I've had this cd and Spirit for a good few years now but have never really known how to describe or quantify it for review purposes. I wanted to say something about it however, so I'll say that it's something you can listen to easily, being of a serene, folky style but you can also ponder about as well. There's quite a few good songs on here and she's a very talented song writer as well as musician and performer. I'd say if you like female vocalists perhaps along the lines of Tori, Kate or Amy with songs about relatable experiences and feelings then this might be for you. She really has her own stamp though and gives a lot of feeling into seemingly simple ideas making it more intimate and less commercial/radio style produce - a reason she's probably not as well known infact, but you can have decent music without being a stadium filler - heartfelt, low key, original & sensitive are preferable in my opinion. Notables are Foolish Games, Save your Soul & I'm Sensitive.

This is an extremely well written début (especially regarding lyrics), and what's even better is that Jewel wrote all of the tracks, minus two that she co-wrote with Steve Poltz.
The first track (and the first single to be released), "Who Will Save Your Soul?", has a good swinging riff, with lyrics about the modern way of living, a theme that is carried on to "Little Sister", about the materialistic and drug-ridden ways of the world. Meanwhile, "Amen" questions nature and religion – a theme also used in the opening track.
The title song, "Pieces of You", has sad guitar music, and the lyrics centre on do we judge people in a certain way because they remind us of ourselves? And "Daddy" has a slow swinging guitar melody that suggests that something is wrong. This fits in with the lyrics, which are at times sarcastic and vengeful – one of the best tracks on the album.
Two tracks tell stories through song. "Painters" is of a pair of artists who face tragedy, and "Adrian" is of a boy damaged at camp who comes home, where the townsfolk believe his life support should be turned off.
Though not all tracks are focused on confronting lyrics. "I'm Sensitive" is a fun little song, while "Angel Standing By" makes the perfect lullaby.
While the standard of lyric writing is high, there is something to be improved upon in the form of music writing. Although the chords and notes used are different and may be played at different paces, there are definite patterns in the music. There seems to be two different groups within the album – the first one consisting of "Who Will Save Your Soul?", "Morning Song", "You Were Meant For Me" and "Daddy"; and a smaller group with "Angel Standing By" and "Amen".

I really like Jewel. I do wonder sometimes how happy she is with her life . Many of her songs are about depressing and sad subjects. The whole CD is very dark and melancholic...and is probably not something you'll whip out when your mates are around for a party. However, when you are home on a quiet Sunday afternoon and feeling quiet and pensive, this CD is perfect for you. Her voice is absolutely spectacular, especially in "Foolish Games" and her lyrics will you hold you captive for hours. "Who Will Save Your Soul" and "You Were Meant For Me" are a little more upbeat in tempo. A great addition to your slow music collection.

I bought this album as soon as I had seen Jewel perform 'You were meant for me' twice on British television, and I was mostly risking the expensive pay out (I was 16, with no income) for something no one had recommended or sampled for me. Man! Was I chuffed that I bought it! I must have played it non stop for a month, and still regularly over the past 3 years, and every song beats within my still. Jewel tells stories with her compositions, wonderfully arranged and performed, emotional and cognitive. If you've heard of jewel, buy this album before any other, it's the foundation by which your admiration for this angel will be strong and eternal, trust me!

By GratuitousViolets TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 7 July 2014
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
A sweet lulling album chockfull of poetic prose and sweet melodic guitar music from an artist who is sometimes very easily overlooked for more contemporary alternatives. When you look for music with meaning, with passion and feeling, the kind of music that clings to you and makes you feel something, that is when you reach for Jewel, and with this album she will deliver.

Jewel has a high innocent almost child-like quality to her voice with occasional deep honeyed low notes that make her style instantly recognisable. She needs no auto-tuners, she does not use fancy vocal techniques to convey emotion and she does not need to sing six octaves to be able to sound lovely. Her simplistic vocal style makes every song lovely, clear and easy to listen to. As for her music, the songs, like in the tradition of all country-influenced artists, are written like stories and situations, as if she is recalling old memories to good friends. She paints worlds we're all familiar with, worlds full of pain and confusion and wonder.

This is a very "unpolished" album and sometimes sounds more like an artist playing in an intimate little coffee house for a small audience rather than a professional in a studio and while this may degrade the quality of the album, it seems to add a strange almost rawness and chilling power to it, especially in songs like "Pieces of You" and "Adrian". The simplicity of an acoustic guitar, a piano and Jewel's voice is for the most part, all you might hear in a good portion of the tracks which seems to give the album a much more intimate and personal feel. At times, listening you could almost imagine this girl being some unknown having burned an album using a tape recorder and a guitar.

For any one who is looking for something powerful but simple and quiet, then this is the ideal choice.
