    An amazing gift

    I was unaware of Joan Osborne before watching "Standing in the Shadow of Motown" but loved her contribution to the documentary. I did not notice "What becomes of the broken hearted" on the play list but was thrilled to see it when the CD arrived. It was an amazing gift to my collection of Motown music.

    Breakfast in bed that won't leave you hungry.

    Seems that it's unanimous consent that Joan Osborne is one of the best modern day era singers. This album doesn't dissapoint in any way. The formula is there: great singer+great songs+great musicians=great album. Some listeners may feel that Joan is "holding back" at times, but that is the beauty of it. If she was blowing her cookies all over the place wouldn't that get old quick? We've got Aretha for that thank God and she does it just right. The range of material selected by Joan just keeps demonstrating how she matures as a singer and her originals weave in perfectly with the overall feeling on this superb effort.

    Best album of the year!

    What a terrific sexy album this is. Though the All Music reviewer gives it a moderate rave, I think it is tremendous. What the AM Guide reviewer misses is the poignant subtlety Ms. Osborne exudes on this album. I suppose you have to have pure ears to appreciate that and critics such as this one are often tainted by their desire to sound like they know what they're talking about. Too bad for him, but good for the rest of us. Whether you're a newcomer to soul music from the late 60's and early 70's, you will adore this album. THough her vocals are mostly reserved, it is that very quality that creates the sensual landscape captured by songs like "natural High" and "Midnight Train to Georgia." This is, by far, Joan's best album to date and the Motown additions from "Standing in the Shadows..." is the icing on the cake. Great job!
