iTunes Review

Dubliner Imelda May proved her timeless mettle on this thoroughly confident second album. Despite her lashing wail on bookends “Johnny Got a Boom Boom” and “Watcha Gonna Do,” she’s just as adept at bringing her voice down for jazzy torch songs like “Knock 123” and “Meet You at the Moon.” Whether wrapping herself around upright bass or boogieing piano, May masters both Sun Records rockabilly and Sarah Vaughan jazz—while adding a plucky Irish twist.

Customer Reviews


I can't wait to see Imelda in person. Her sound is so fresh and pure. No special sound effects here. Her whole band doesn't need any boost, echo, reverb or what ever like so much of today's music relies on. Her lyrics are pure, simple, and profound. She certainly appeals to a wide spectrum from the young to the seasoned rocker like me at 63. Great stuff Imelda!!!

Interesting mix of sounds!

There is jazz, rockabilly, skat.... Imelda sounds a bit like Gwen Stefani but with a richer tone in her voice which is evident on the jazzier tunes... Worth a listen to if you like jazz and rockabilly....I found the rockabilly tunes catchy and the jazz tunes really showing off her vocals!

HBO fans will like this

song big bad handsome guy which rocks especially since the trumpet player, the rest of band & Imelda will make the rest of the album well worth enjoying.
