Sweet and Wild [Deluxe Edition]

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Unlike her dance-pop makeover 304, Jewel's 2008 country excursion provided a perfect pivot back toward the soothing, strumalong folk that made the singer/songwriter a star. She alludes to this as much with the title of Sweet & Wild, a collection that is surely as sweet as sugar and just about as wild, too.
