I scored a promo of BLACKLISTED a couple weeks ago, and it reminds me a lot
of her last few live shows, but with drums. Kinda sleepy/down-tempo, and,
sad as it is to say, kinda boring. She still has a great voice (and actually
hits the high notes on the album on a few songs that she struggles with
live), but I'm a little disappointed, not in that it's not good, because it
is, but that it's not the album *I* wanted to hear from her. Which is to say
it's still better than a lot of things I've bought this year so far.
- Yeah, kind of! Of course, I already sold the record back, so I can't
listen to it *again* to be sure. <g>
