Disappointing

I loved Finally Woken and Down to Earth was a great follow-on. I really thought this was the genre Jem had settled in to. This album though... it's just boring. I was 5 songs into it before I had to check - because I thought I had something on repeat. It all mostly sounds the same, and is pretty lifeless. If you love Jem, stick to her previous albums.

Oh Jem...

What a beautiful and unique voice. However, unfortunately the songwriting continues to slip. I'm sorry to be negative, as I truely love Jem - but I've listened to this album repeatedly for days now and I'm still disappointed. Finally Woken was absolutely touching and inspired but over ten years old now. Down to Earth felt a little spiteful and focused on the negative, but it offered some hope for a newfound realism of what Jem it all about. The singles inbetween the albums showed Jem's unique voice and sense of rhythm. I find it hard to believe Beachwood Canyon is what Jem is all about in her evolution as a songwriter or as a person. Maybe her life is "too good" right now and although that shouldn't change, in her writing she needs to dig deeper to once again feel a longing, a burning, and a true sense of need and love and lust and loss. What do I know - but this album feels superficial. The lyrics don't speak to me and the beats don't pull me in. She's better than than this album, and I'll remain a fan and look forward to her next project.

The single is a good start!

I have loved Jem's music (and her sibling's "Weapons") for a long time now and this release has been eagerly anticipated for what, 5 or so years now? Her previous two albums are regular listens for my family and me and we are all very excited to experience this album in it's entirety. Thus far the single/title track does not disappoint and holds great promise for it being another fantastic release done in Jem's very own unique style.

I will update this with maybe some more specifics as soon as I have actually heard the album. :-)
