She sure has!

An album often maligned for not being as raw as her debut, or as melodic as 'Pearl', it really is far better than given credit for.
Great tracks like 'Try' and 'Maybe' are excellent pieces of songwriting, and her voice conveys more emotion than either of the other albums. You really feel that this is a low point in her life, but a high point in her career.
Big Brother guitarist Sam Andrew stayed around for this album, and gives a more raw edge to it than the other more polished musicians.
If you've been told that 'Cheap Thrills' or 'Pearl' are better albums, don't believe it - all 3 albums stand on their individual merits, and this one can certainly stand with its head held high beside the other two.
