Colour Me Free! [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
The "free" in the title to Joss Stone's fourth album apparently refers to the neo-singer breaking free from the shackles of her major label, EMI, who apparently have not let Joss be Joss. That this constricting argument happens to be the exact same story line Stone used for 2007's Introducing Joss Stone, the splashy diva power trip meant to unveil the "real" singer, is conveniently forgotten, as is the modern R&B of that makeover, with Joss returning to all the retro-soul of her first two records. The one lingering element of Introducing is a propensity for melisma-laden oversinging, a tic that stands out greatly in the warmer, funkier settings of Colour Me ...

The one lingering element of Introducing is a propensity for melisma-laden oversinging, a tic that stands out greatly in the warmer, funkier settings of Colour Me Free!, helping Joss seem somewhat disconnected from the emotional thrust of her music. Still, her raw vocal skills remain impressive, as does her taste in soul, and even if this feels off-kilter, not quite achieving a balance between retro and modernity, it does beat with a messy human heart, one that was subdued on Introducing, so perhaps she did need to break free.

    At Last!

    Joss Stone finally broke free of her contract with the recording company that was trying to turn her into a pop singer. In this album she gets back on track with the gutsy, bluesy material that's really her. On some tracks you'd swear she was channeling Janis Joplin with the music Janis would have made if she'd lived long enough to develop her full potential. This kid can break your heart on one track, then have you jumping up to dance with wild abandon on the next one. I've been waiting most of my life to hear music like this. The only thing this album left me wanting was more.

    Great album

    Bought Colour Me Free a few months ago at Target, and I have to say that her latest album is wonderful. This album reminds me of her first one, which is one of my favorites by Joss. Would recommend to any Joss Stone fan.
