Oozes emotion, soul and feeling from every pore.

The latest offering from Grammy nominated singer/song-writer Beth Hart, her eighth studio release, oozes emotion, soul and feeling from every pore.

'Jazzman' starts the ball rolling with its Waltzy, swinging tempo. As the name suggests, it's essentially a Jazz number with fluid piano parts, accompanied by a traditional bass keeping the beat, as Hart's sultry voice snakes smoothly through the track. She digs in at certain points, adding some grit to her voice to intensify the feeling. 'Love Gangster' follows, and is full of rhythms from across the globe and has a slight Santana feel. Her wonderful vocal vibrato kicks in on this song and is helped along by some tasty guitar soloing. Next up, 'Coca Cola' blends gorgeous Blues licks with a smouldering performance by Hart, who teases the listener but denies us a climax to the song!

Hart's had many musical associations over the years, with the likes of Buddy Guy, Jeff Beck and Joe Bonamassa alongside others on the rockier side like Slash. 'Love Is A Tie' is a song full of attitude, Rocking guitars and deep vocal power with Hart extracting some gritty, husky tones to great effect thus making this Blues Rocker really hit home. 'Fat Man' keeps up the momentum and Hart's lyrical mastery is second to none, as this pumping Rocker gets the musical juices flowing. The title track and 'Good Day To Cry' are both slower numbers, but still have Hart pouring her heart out with powerful passion, whilst 'Baby Shot Me Down' takes a new twist as its Funky guitar riff and catchy vocal hooks drive the track along and deliver a very punchy result.

There are several piano/vocal songs on the album, including 'Woman You've Been Dreaming' and 'Picture In A Frame'. But perhaps the most outstanding of them is the album's last track 'No Place Like Home'; this intensely beautiful track shows that Hart doesn't need a band behind her to create a strong, heartfelt song that oozes feeling from every line.

Beth Hart has experienced many things, including the loss of close family, bad relationships, various addictions and illness, but these life-changing demons have not defeated her. She has channelled her energies into creating a stunning voice and great song-writing abilities, enabling her to share her musical gift with the world and make creative gems like this.
