I have been eagerly awaiting this album since I first listened to Relish over 5 years ago. Indeed, I was worried that my extreme anticipation would undermine my ability to enjoy Righteous Love if it turned out to be less-than-spectacular. Happily, it turned out to be more-than-spectacular, as well as surprising and fascinating in many different ways. The most important thing is that Joan Osborne's magnificent voice is front and center on every track, although I always want her to show it off more than she usually does on her recordings. I think she is one of the greatest living American singers. The sincerity, soulfulness and unpredictability of this album puts most other current ''popular'' music to shame. I doubt this record could become very popular today - its that good. This dedicated fan is celebrating this long-overdue triumph.

After listening to ''Righteous Love'' it is apparent that Eric Brazilian was the main reason Relish was so good. His guitar arrangements and playing were first rate and are sorely missing on this album, which suffers from a serious case of keyboard overdose. Anyone who buys this (including myself) expecting a logical extension of Relish will be greatly disappointed. The same thing happened with Alanis Morrissette's second album, total departure from what the fans liked about the first one. I understand the desire to grow as an artist, but alienating your fan base isn't really a good move in my opinion.
