15 Songs, 53 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

As audacious as it is bleak, Amy Winehouse’s debut LP, Frank, is the work of a tortured soul. In an anguished rasp of a voice that scats and wails late into the night, Winehouse cradles herself in cathartic blues and self-pity (“Amy Amy Amy”), mocks the desperation of others (“F**k Me Pumps”), and struggles with love's affliction over a deep R&B groove (“What Is It About Men”). With its beautifully raw, soulful, jazz-inspired edge, Frank reveals a hopeless romantic who knows that true bravery can’t come without some painful honesty.

Her Best Album In my Opinion

As a huge Amy fan, I think this is the best album. Back to black is great, but to me Frank is a bit more diverse in sounds & styles. Just a bit.
Every song is written so direct and honest it's so refreshing and changing to hear it, every time. Every motion is written and told, you never second guess, and often times it is written in the most wonderful poetic form, pr coupled with poetic lines that just hold a wow factor. The sounds go from hip-hop, to jazz, and simple acoustic guitar songs to name a couple.
By the way - the US Version of Frank omits "Help Yourself" & added on "Mr. Magic" & "Brother", the international versions have "Help Yourself" but omit "Mr. Magic" & "Brother" as well as changing the song order. I personally recommend not getting the US Version because the UK Version has better flow. Problem witht that is, it doesn't appear to be available online for some reason!! Only CD!! But worth it all the way of you dig.
My Favorite Songs on Frank - "MR MAGIC !!!", "Stronger Than Me", "In My Bed", although I love them all.

love this album

I just wish Intro/Stronger Than Me and You Sent Me Flying/Cherry were separate because they are great by themselves
