With the proliferation of earthy rock chicks such as Vanessa Carlton and Michelle Branch, it might seem like an opportune time for Joan Osborne, who gathered Grammy nominations for her triple-platinum 1995 debut Relish and its breakthrough single "One of Us," to revive her flowing blues-and-folk roots. Rather than take the anticipated path, however, he New York singer offers a twist. Taking a page from Ally McBeal's resident torch singer Vonda Shepard, Osborne turns in an album of stylish covers of contemporary R&B classics. She wraps her husky voice around a supper-club version of Otis Redding's "These Arms of Mine," underscores the message behind Edwin Starr's "War" at a funeral pace, and gives James Taylor a shudder with her lush, Eastern-tinged take on Marvin Gaye's "How Sweet It Is." Most unexpected. --Aidin Vaziri

It is comforting to know, that even in these dark and depressing days of TV popstars, with no obvious talent, there are still great artists, doing it, for those of us who crave quality.Step forward Joan Osborne, she of the stunning voice. Now on an independant label, Joan is able to deliver an album of cover versions, simply not bettered.Mostly songs done previously by black artists, Joan proves that while white men cant dance, white women can sing.The version of "why cant we live together" brought into the new century with a fabulous new coat of sound deserves to be a hit, and her version of "war" takes the dance out of the song,and slows it right down to play on its message "What is it good for"? A duet with mister smooth Isaac Hayes has you tapping youre feet, whilst, a superb reworking of Aretha Franklins "Think" and a fresh take on Stevie Wonders "loves in need of love today" sit effortlessly next to Hendrix's Axis and the Byrds "the weight". Listen to this album 5 times and you will not be able to live without it , this lady has the ability to make just about any song sound better, when she sings it and boy can she sing!. So please, do yourself a favour, and GIVE JOAN A CHANCE

I didn't click with this. joan Osborne has a wonderful voice, but none of the tracks really gripped me.

Oh Dear, I bought this CD on the strength of her voice on the Funk Brothers 'Standing in the shadows of Motown', however it is not. I was expecting that big powerfull voice she has in that CD, I was so dissapointed and also the backing band lacked oomph too. She ought to make more of that 'Motown sound' voice she can do.
