EDITORS’ NOTES

With a deeply personal touch, Amy Winehouse melds torchy doo-wop era ballads, soul, and girl-group slammers. Winehouse topped the charts with “Rehab,” a forthright tribute to early-’60s radio that does The Ronettes and The Drifters proud. Despite the buzz from that instant anthem, Back to Black doesn’t shy from the heartbroken—and not just in the “Me and Mr. Jones”’ complaint that she missed a Slick Rick show. The title track brings the real pain, one more in an album of performances that certified Winehouse as an undeniable master.
