I was first introduced to Beth Hart when she released a fabulous album with blues genius Joe Bonamassa and instantly loved her voice. I've since checked out a lot of her other work and have come to the conclusion that she has simply got better and better the longer she has been in the music business. Her voice certainly has. Whilst I'm not sure that this album has bettered the album she made with Joe, it's definitely a closely run thing and the work that she did with him has made a lasting impression on her. Straight from the off, Baddest Blues takes the listener into a state of bliss, being a soulful, passionate torch ballad. As one of the outstanding tracks on the album, it's a difficult act to follow, but there are so many superb songs on this release, it becomes immediately clear very soon that it's a classy album in its entirety. You know, even if these weren't great songs, her voice - THAT voice - would make them worth listening to. Thankfully, this is a complete package here, great songs and a exceptional voice to deliver them. I'm not going to go delving into individual songs here, each song is superb in its own right. Only buy this if you want to be transported into smoky, jazzy, soulful, bluesy heaven - otherwise feel free to pass it by...
