Joan Armatrading

Continuing with the blues theme this week, Joan Armatrading comes as sort of a surprising delight. Don't make the same mistake I did, and come with the preconceived notion that women don't know how to play the blues--cause Armatrading sure as hell does. Her latest album Into The Blues is aptly titled, as it is a rather accessible pop-oriented blues album with lots of great electric guitar riffs and some nifty drum rhythms. "A Woman in Love" is perhaps one of the best (yes, quote me) songs of the year that I've heard to date. But the rest of the album isn't too shabby either, as Armatrading puts a solid effort in, all the way through "Something Gonna Blow", the last track on the album. Other highlights include the jazzy "Play the Blues" and the hoppy "D.N.A". So what are you waiting for? Give Ms. Armatrading some love.

Go and get your self a copy of Into The Blues.
