Overall: Boring and forgettable.
For her fifth album LP1”, Joss Stone decided to mesh her soulful vocals with the sound of blues-tinged rock and country. In theory, this concept is a great idea because after all, the three genres are all influenced by one another in some way. However, “LP1” didn't execute the concept well and the theory didn’t become truth. The musical arrangements are lifeless and over-simplistic and Stone sings with emotionless abandon. It’s the equivalent of your sister playing random melodies on her acoustic guitar and singing “ooh’s and ahh’s” on the porch. Most of the tracks don’t catch your attention. I usually enjoy Joss Stone, but not this go round. Sorry Joss.
