Official cover of Jewel’s new album “Sweet & Wild”

We really are not too excited about this news. The truth is we haven’t like anything Jewel has done in years since 0304. Her first and second albums were monumental, until she decided to do some twang and switch from folk to country. Her third album was nice and her experimental dance  album of adequate. But, the albums that came after – Goodbye Alice In Wonderland and Perfectly Clear - were complete balderdash, only to top it off with the monumentally gross Lullaby. Well, the next album is not going to be any better by the sounds of its as she is meddling with the country sound again in her Texas ranch. They new single “Stay Here Forever” doesn’t sound promising either. So, Sweet & Wild is nothing to shake a stick at.

The Sugababes are trying to swing this album so bad as it might not land in the UK top 10 and that means its a failure as the UK market loves them more than any other. We haven’t given it a listen, not because we don’t have faith in it but because we have issues with the credibility of the band now that there are absolutely no original members, makes us feel like it’s a music industry machine rather than a band.
