Awesome!, 20 Aug. 2004
Joss Stone surpised us all with her Debut-Album "The Soul Sessions". The 16-year-old girl with the voice of a 40-year-old soul-singer doesn't have to show on her second LP that she is a talented person.
The difference between "Mind, Body & Soul" and her first CD is that Joss Stone co-wrote the 14 new tracks. "The Soul Sessions" only included songs by artists like Laura Lee, Joe Simon und Soul Brothers Six.
If you listen to her new single "You Had Me", you will realize that it is rather pop than soul-music. "Right To Be Wrong" and "Spoiled" are soul-ballads we are used to hear when we listen to Joss. "Don't Cha Wanna Ride" is one of the faster tracks on the album and reminds of "Super Duper Love". "Jet Lag" could be a R&B-ballad by Destiny's Child.
To sum this up, Joss Stone presents a many-sided album consisting of soul, pop and R&B-music.
