5.0 out of 5 stars Her best yet? A serious return to form..DIVINE!, 24 Mar. 2007
This review is from: Into The Blues (Audio CD)
As a long standing Joan Armatrading fan, I've diligently bought every album, hoping, but slightly disappointed. I haven't been blown away since the early days of To The Limit or 'Joan Armatrading'. THIS IS THE ONE! Edgy, raw, impassioned, this is exactly where I think Joan should be. It's rugged blues but it's so much more aswell. She's in the best voice she's been and that's her greatest strength. All self penned songs, it sounds like her most honest - 'Mama Papa' is her 'Nutbush City Limits' (a sparse Ben Harper meets Bobbie Gentry classic). It's also very uplifting; despite a sprinkling of her yearning ballads, protest songs - she's obviously in a good place. This is RL Burnside blues not Robert Cray - lowdown-minimum polish. I've always thought Joan was one of the most under-rated British talents - this is her swansong and she deserves huge success from it. If you want to hear Joan Armatrading without the lush 80's sheen that dogged some of her more recent output, this will repay your faith 10 times over. I love it, love it, love it!!
