Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Dave Gil de Rubio
Though Jewel trekked to Nashville to record her third album with producer Dan Huff, This Way is not the Alaska native's bid to become the next Faith Hill. Instead, it's the best record of her career, short on precious lyrics and long on muscular twang 'n' roll. This Way displays Jewel's keen observational skills in heartfelt songs about the spiritual price of materialism "Jesus Loves You", the uncertain path our society is taking "The New Wild West", or just flat-out romantic yearning "Standing Still". Despite these weighty concerns, Jewel avoids excessive hand wringing, and she uses the rockin' arrangements to cut loose. The exotic "Serve the Ego" employs finger ...

Instead, it's the best record of her career, short on precious lyrics and long on muscular twang 'n' roll. This Way displays Jewel's keen observational skills in heartfelt songs about the spiritual price of materialism "Jesus Loves You", the uncertain path our society is taking "The New Wild West", or just flat-out romantic yearning "Standing Still". Despite these weighty concerns, Jewel avoids excessive hand wringing, and she uses the rockin' arrangements to cut loose. The exotic "Serve the Ego" employs finger cymbals, Middle Eastern-flavored vocal phrasing, and racy lyrics about dominance and subservience. And the torchy "I Won't Walk Away" recalls her yearning hit "Foolish Games." Elsewhere, Jewel gives Joan Osborne a run for her money as she howls over the slide-guitar-driven rock of "Love Me, Just Leave Me Alone." If it seems that the precocious poet has forgotten her past, a pair of bonus live tracks, "Grey Matter" and "Sometimes It Be That Way," with their simple vocal-guitar arrangements, neatly recall the solid folk roots at the heart of this gem of a singer-songwriter.
All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Jewel came dangerously close to drowning in her own solemnity and good intentions with her second album, so it comes as a great relief that This Way, her third effort, finds her lightening up and sharpening her focus, creating an album that never feels as somber or polished as Spirit. In fact, it's her first genuine step forward, since it finds her enhancing the latent folk and country influences in her music, attempting to add grit to her songs and performances, while retaining the pop sense of Pieces of You's studiocraft that made Spirit a more sonically satisfying record than her debut. Consequently, this is probably the best record she has cut to date, even if she still is very quick to indulge in silly, naïve lyrics (it's not just her save-the-world sentiments -- who on god's green earth has pictures of Randy Newman strewn across the floor?). Nevertheless, Jewel sounds looser, more comfortable than she ever has, and the music matches her attitude. The same problems may still remain, but her strengths have been enhanced and, at its best, This Way offers some fine, sweet adult alternative folk-pop -- maybe it has some dull stretches, and maybe she still takes herself a bit too seriously, but it's a classy adult pop record all the same.
Billboard
This Way is the 27-year-old singer/songwriter's most ambitious effort yet, illustrating her desire to take on the world's societal and political ills and color them with a variety of stylistic hues: There's cowpoke country, folk, rich balladry, blues, even a whimsical turn at ballsy rock. CT

    another great one from jewel

    so, this album was released after jewel started dating a rodeo star and all of a sudden, she's a country singer. well, not completely. but this album is very country influenced, with the use of steel guitar in "cleveland" and "love me just leave me alone," as well as the country-tinged sound of "til we run out of road." this influence came out of left-feild, as neither "pieces of you" nor "spirit" contained any kind of country sound in them. i personally am not a fan of country, but it actually works on this album. actually, i would consider this album her second best behind "spirit." it has, once again, a group of well-written songs, including "jesus loves you," a politically charged song with lyrics disecting religious extremists, which also has a very catchy melody, and "do you want to play?" the lyrics of which still have me wondering if jewel had a lesbian fling. it's hard to explain why, but this album is just really, really catchy.

    For a first time, I know it won't be my last!

    Jewel is a really good singer. I bought this CD, in the midst of getting hooked on Standing Still. I wasn't sure what any of the other songs were like, and I'll admit it. It's nothing like Standing Still or from 0304:Intuition. But to me, it wasn't a let down. I really enjoyed (obviously Standing Still), Serve the Ego, Cleveland, and Do You Want To Play? I don't know why, but those songs I could listen to over and over again. Their just simply addicting. I've never heard a singer like Jewel, besides Alanis Morrissette, who I would say has a small resemblance to Jewel. I really liked her cd and am eager to see what all 4 of her other cds will be like. Hopefully just as good.

    Simply Jewel

    The first time I met Jewel was in Paris, in 1997, at the "Reservoir" Venue. I remember it like it was yesterday, it happened on February 9th. She was there to promote her sophomore album "Spirit". Paris symbolized the very beginning of her European tour. Her way of going on the stage and from the very first notes of "Down So Long", i knew I was going to listen to an extremely gifted singer, which is so rare in the world of music nowadays. And I was right : the whole gig was up to our expectations and she showed the full extent of her talent, which we can describe as pure and extremely rich, whether she is alone on stage with her guitar or with a full band. Great moment ! What comes to my mind when I think of her is, apart from her particular voice, her lyrics, which are strikingly true to life, and imbued with such soundness. She has that particular way of staring at the spectator, softly, smoothly. She sings in a reserved way, modestly... Now it is evident that Jewel is a charismatic character whom you cannot forget once the lights are off. I used to consider her as a country-folk singer, like Emmylou Harris or Shawn Colvin, now she's far more than that. I used to know only her music (by heart, of course), now I try to know more about her, I wanted to discover the secret of her talent at all costs. Was it a pact with the devil ? A secrete alliance ? Medicine's benevolence ?A genetic mystery ? A divine bliss ? I wanted to figure out why this girl was so different from the others, and especially why she attracted me like a magnet. From then on, I started piling up all I could find about her, books, cds, excavations, websites, concerts...everything ! I would never see the end of it. And the more I was trying to understand, the more I was dumbfounded by what I would find out about her. How such a young girl could have such a rich story ? When she was young, she used to be poor, she used to live in Alaska, far from the torments and temptations of the city. Little Jewel grew up without electricity, nor hot water, so she used to write to heal her wounds. her parents then got divorced, so she headed for California - where she used to live in a caravan - to join her mother and live with her. She then played in bars, streets, wherever it was possible, to devote herself to her passion of music et earn a few coins. That's how she used to view her life : no real ambition, nor big revolt, just a peaceful life. She only wanted to be a singer, she did not even think of being famous. Anyway, the young lady with an angel voice became a star almost overnight. Her first album, "pieces of you" sold 11 million copies. And everything continued from there. But jewel has a strong charater but still has her feet firmly planted on the ground. After 5 continuous years at the top of the charts, overwhelmed with rewards (literary, musical, cinematographic) and finally acknowledged by musicians such as Bob Dylan or Neil Young whom she opened gigs for, she was exhausted and decided to put her career on hold and reminisce with her childhood. It was time to stand back from all this and find her way. Everything went so quickly. Her long-awaited new album, soberly entitled "This way" displays a new jewel who now became a woman. Though her concerns have not changed, she has an enriched outlook on life thanks to her past experiences. jewel herself wrote all the songs on this album, with no exceptions. her new songs are less introspective and definitely the most committed ones of her career. There is no room for ambiguity for this artist who doesn't mince her words but who has the privilege to have a natural sense of music and poetry. Though more pop and less folk, this album follows up on the heels of her previous records, even if one can be baffled by the first listening. Indeed, this is the very first time that Jewel co-produced a record. For this one, she appealed to Dann Huff, a renowned guitar

    I'm Speechless

    I had wondered where Jewel had disappeared to, but I guess she wanted to keep us hidden from the new gems on her CD... I especially adored "Jesus loves You", which showed Jewel's characteristic raciness... how she can put herself out of the norm... I definatly recommend this CD to all you JEwel fans out there

    Absolutely Incredible!!!

    I bought the cd for the catchy tune "standing still". What started out as my favorite song now I'm not so sure. Other songs just jump out off this cd. Jesus loves you, Love me just leave me alone, Till we run out of road, Cleveland, This way, Break me, and last but NOT least Serve the ego are incredible. Because of this cd I'm doing something I've always wanted to do, learning to play the acoustic guitar. This cd is a definite must have. Thanks Jewel for inspiring one more person, ME. Merri

    A Huge Disappointment

    I got this cd thinking that all the songs would be as good as the first ''Standing Still.'' Boy, was I disappointed. I think out of all 14 tracks on the cd, only 2 are any good. I really did not like this cd. And, I don't think I will purchase anymore cd's by Jewel.

    Not the typical Jewel we hear, but what's not to like about it??

    Wow! I am probabaly the biggest Jewel fan there ever is and ever will be! This album, unlike her others, is very intrumental, it is not the typical Jewel and acoustic guitar duo. But, the sound on this album is incredible. My favorite song on this album would have to be '''Till we run out of road'' it is such a great song. I can't wait for Jewel to come out with something new! Every CD she releases there are more surprises!

    This Way is Jewel's Shining Star!

    Jewel's new CD This Way literally has a song for every type of person. Each song has a different meaning as well as a different style. There are beautiful slow ballads, some jammy faster songs, as well as some great new country songs she included! Her style and method of writing music shines through in this album and is a great release after a couple of years off the charts!

    Another great album for an awesome singer

    When Jewel finished up with her spirit tour, and word was put out about this cd, I couldnt wait to get it. I never imagined that it would be this good. ''This Way'' shows Jewels diversity and her talent. She is the best out there. We knew she could rock....this just proves it! If you don't have this....you are missing out!

    The Jewel We All Know & Love!

    ''This Way'' is a great mix of fun melodies & deep lyrics. It's the Jewel we all know & love! I've been a fan of Jewel since I first heard ''Who Will Save Your Soul'', & ''This Way'' is truly one of her best works. While I don't like certain tracks on this album, it's well worth the money!

    Jewel's Done it Again!

    Jewel's newest album, This Way, has proven, once again, that she has a raw and varied tallent. This album will be loved by people of all ages, genders, and muscial preference. She has incorporated many different music styles into one album. ''Cleveland'' and ''Till We Run Out of Road'' are a little bit country. ''Serve the Ego'' has an Eastern flair. The first hit single of the album, ''Standing Still'' sounds a little bit pop. Then, there are songs that show Jewel's own wonderful style of lyrics and music like ''Break Me'' and ''This Way''. Look out while listening to ''Love Me Just Leave Me Alone'' because Jewel goes wild and rocks her way into the hearts and ears of all. This is a great album that can be enjoyed in any mood by all! She's done it again.

    Another ''jewel'' of an album

    Once again, Jewel delivers beautiful music and meaningful lyrics. The album is just as refreshing as previous releases and has a catchy, country sound. Jewel's depth of emotion, sincerity and overall hopefulness continue to separate her from the mainstream.
