Amy Winehouse should be applauded

Not for a unique sound which I'd argue isn't really original but for finding success with it in an industry where we don't break the mold and churn out song after song with the same voice, melody, and lyrics. I agree with some of the other reviewers that HER voice can get repetitive but her hits will hopefully live on as a beacon of hope in early 21st century pop.

She is not the type of person anyone should emulate or aspire to be. I'm all for self-expression, but her destructive lifestyle is not something to be glorified. I'm not saying she should be a paragon of virtue, but I am saying that the life she chooses to lead has an influence on people even if it shouldn't. You aren't twelve years old any more, have some self-control for God's sakes.

Irritating

Over-the-top vocal technique can sometimes sound impressive at first, but being subjected to excessive amounts of it can lead one to become violent. I like the vintage sound of the recordings, and if I were rating the recording engineer, I would be generous with the stars. But I'm not. I'm reviewing Amy Winehouse. And I do believe I just ripped her a new one.

What a lush

Her shows are a crap shoot - maybe she will perform OK?

I thought Moby threw his Wii remote into a collection of old Billie Holiday recordings, or something.
