Her voice is just off enough to be annoying, very whiny. The backing band, however, is really good.
The first time I've heard her music. Beth Hart has a great blues sound, and it comes across throughout the album.
A versatile singer for sure but the blues tracks stand out without a doubt. Baby Shot Me Down, Love is a Lie and Fire on the Floor will sell you on this album. AllMusic review notes "Hart seems relaxed and playful -- a sensibility that's evident from the opening "Jazz Man." This song title suggests that she might be headed down a jazzy road, but Fire on the Floor showcases her versatility, bouncing between slinky jazz and grinding blues ("Love Gangster") while finding space for outright rockers ("Fat Man"), Southern soul ("Let's Get Together"), and a gospel-inflected ballad ("No Place Like Home"). None of this feels showy: it flows easily and naturally, the songs connected by their deep Americana roots and the snappy skill of the players."
So there's much to this album to recommend. Give it a listen!
The lady sure knows her "blues"... fantastic album!
