Amy Winehouse- Frank (Album Review)

Imagine fusing Minnie Riperton with the Beastie Boys, or Ray Charles with Salt N Pepper. Imagine a voice as distinctive as Dinah Washington or Billie Holiday. Imagine personal lyrics which paint images of a young woman’s life in London. Got that? That’s pretty much 19-year-old Amy Winehouse’s debut LP: classic jazz crooning dirtied with her other influences – Ben Folds Five, Stevie Wonder and Miss Dynamite. Frank is an honest, refreshingly personal record which, though very occasionally strays into easy jazz, has Gucci bags of personality. And she ain’t half got a pair of lungs.
