Album Review

Jewel came dangerously close to drowning in her own solemnity and good intentions with her second album, so it comes as a great relief that This Way, her third effort, finds her lightening up and sharpening her focus, creating an album that never feels as somber or polished as Spirit. In fact, it's her first genuine step forward, since it finds her enhancing the latent folk and country influences in her music, attempting to add grit to her songs and performances, while retaining the pop sense of Pieces of You's studiocraft that made Spirit a more sonically satisfying record than her debut. Consequently, this is probably the best record she has cut to date, even if she still is very quick to indulge in silly, naïve lyrics (it's not just her save-the-world sentiments — who on god's green earth has pictures of Randy Newman strewn across the floor?). Nevertheless, Jewel sounds looser, more comfortable than she ever has, and the music matches her attitude. The same problems may still remain, but her strengths have been enhanced and, at its best, This Way offers some fine, sweet adult alternative folk-pop — maybe it has some dull stretches, and maybe she still takes herself a bit too seriously, but it's a classy adult pop record all the same.

Customer Reviews

Good songs here worth a listen.

"Standing Still" and "Jesus Loves You" were played on the radio and should be recognized. The title track "This Way" and "I Won't Walk Away" grow on you after a few times and are worth downloading as well. This album seems to have more rock songs on it than others. For example, the song "Love Me, Just Leave Me Alone" reminds me of Janis Joplin.

Love It XOXO

this is an inspiring album, especially "standing still". i really can relate to that song

This Way

This album is not only an example of the extreme talent, intelligence and creativity of Ms. Jewel Kilcher, it is full of meaning and deep feeling. It is upbeat and fun, just like 0304 (although her Spirit album was fantastic as well) and proof that she can conquer any of the "genres" of what we call music. If you can hear "leave me alone baby" then you have a chance to begin to hear everything this fabulous poet and musician has to say and if you know what I mean then I don't have to write any more. At election time I am going to post a portion of "New Wild West" all over my car ... Show me a leader ... you know what I mean. Please do not miss this album.

Biography

Born: May 23, 1974 in Payson, UT

Genre: Pop

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

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...
