Reseña de álbum

It isn't hard to view Jewel's country music makeover on Perfectly Clear with a mildly cynical eye, especially as it follows her dance-pop shakeup on 2003's 0304 by a mere five years. Such whiplash changes in direction are bound to raise suspicion, but Jewel wears her country threads better than her diva hand-me-downs, possibly because it suits her mythical back-story of living out of the back of the truck but it's also a smaller leap from folk to country...at least in theory, that is, as Perfectly Clear isn't quite a full-fledged country album. Like Bon Jovi before her and Jessica Simpson after, Jewel's country move is more about marketing than music, an adjustment that puts her in line with adults raised on Pieces of You but more likely to listen to Brad Paisley than Feist. There are fiddles and steel guitars threaded throughout the album but their presence is nearly subliminal at most points; they're felt, not heard, just enough to give it a country feel. The setting may be country — courtesy of producer John Rich, whose production recalls his hazy, soft solo album rather than the gonzo strut of Big & Rich — but Jewel is not a country singer, no matter how often she affects a twang. She's a folksinger, soaring with her long, lyrical phrases instead of aiming for the gut, something that grates when she does attempt something uptempo but she wisely avoids this pitfall through much of the album, choosing to dole out ballads and midtempo pop. This brings Perfectly Clear much closer to Pieces of You than any album she's made since, as it's filled with poppy, simple songs about relationships, never bogging down in portentous pretension, literary preoccupations, or glossy pop as she has in every record since. This doesn't necessarily make Perfectly Clear a "better" record — some of those albums were pretty good even if they didn't adhere to the Jewel myth — but it does mean it feels more like the Jewel that everybody came to love back in 1995, which is what it was intended to do. So it has the form and feel, but the devil is in the details, the songs that never quite hook and sometimes serve up some patently absurd moments, usually in the form of her overheated lyrics (which also betray how un-country she really is). Such details might be a deal-breaker for some, but Jewel feels and sounds comfortable here, something that will surely help her shift units with this record and will likely give her a long career, if she so chooses.

amazing.

this is the most solid jewel album since "this way." bar none. "i do" is a mid-paced love song about whether you're willing to make the sacrifice to spend your life with someone. guess what? you are. "thump, thump" is about as beautiful and simple a love song as there gets. she said she wrote it for her boyfriend "because after 10 years, he still makes my heart go thump, thump." mmm. you finally get some on-album yodeling with "loved by you," and "perfectly clear" is a hardcore fan favorite that is everything we've always hoped for, production-wise. simple and heart-breaking.

One of Jewel's Best - A Gem on First Listen

I have been a fan of Jewel, since just after her coffee house days, and I have seen her in concert over a dozen times. "Perfectly Clear," is a stunningly gorgeous demonstration of Jewel's unique, fascinating storytelling. Furthermore, the sound is fantastic. I care very little for country music, but this album is fantastic and quickly rose to one be one of my favorite Jewel albums ever despite having only listened fully one time. Typically I need a dozen listens before really understanding and enjoying the sound of an album. Not here, this album is great right off the first push of the play button. The variety and quality of songs on here is fantastic. From older treasures, to new creations, they are found here. They will delight you, put you at peace, and entertain you. My next album hope? This album was fully enjoyed. I still want, someday, the average CD or radio listener to hear the brilliance that is Jewel live. A Jewel live album, or live-style album would further complete her discography.

Lovely Jewel

This CD sounds like classic Jewel, Folk runs right in with country, and If one knows anything about her history they should know that she comes from a family of musicians who did bluegrass, and yodeling. She has yodeled in ALOT of her old music...ppl just didn't pick up on it because it was to a rock/pop beat...but it worked didn't it? Please do not say the girl is out of her element, she can do anything...granted folk is a type of country, and she has with the exception of her pop/dance album always been in the midst of a rock/pop/folk/country limbo...for years. In a generation of genre crossing, and breaking people are quick to judge one who is multi-talented. I have never seen Jewel in person but I have listened to her through the years, and in the past few she has lost and gained some fans...the reality is we have to stop being fanatics...Idolizing and critisizing the every twitch of our favorite artists, and recognize that they are the same as we are, their talent just happens to be singing, or acting...everyone has talent...some get more recognition than others, and that is makes some people seem better than others....but they are not...some people can cook, some can work wood and make amazing masterpieces, some people are great leaders and easily earn the respect of those around them, some are equestirans, some write blueprints, and yet still some work at Micky D's...but don't downplay that either...they could be the picture of dedication and hard work...for the love of their family, or they could be encouraging their fellow worker to do their best regardless of the situation...any one can be a master of something...everyone can work together and respect one another......I am sure that even Jewel Respects the bartender....I think at one point she worked at a bar in Alaska...everyone has to start somewhere...everyone has a story, so Enjoy the art that she has chosen to share with us, or enjoy someone else's that you can appreciate...dont diss her because of your personal taste, or opinion...find someone you do Best Wishes to all! FYI: check out her yodeling skillz on # 10 for a little old school Jewel lovely #9 #11 The album is AWESOME! listen to all of it...I like every song...incuding her remake of the two become one song...she has done it in 3 different styles...appreciate

As a story, Jewel's origin is impossible to beat: on her way up, the singer/songwriter lived in a van on the West Coast, struggling to find an entrance to a career as a professional musician. This hardscrabble tale, only enhanced by her Alaskan upbringing, stood in direct contrast to the sweet, gentle hits "Who Will Save Your Soul," "You Were Meant for Me," and "Foolish Games" from her 1995 debut Pieces of You, songs that never suggested a tough background. Nevertheless, Jewel's sensitive side and...
