Ok straight up for me one of the best albums of its generation.. artistry at its best.. Ronson and Salam killed it in the production as well, knew exactly when to get out of the way of amy and when to support her vocals..

Cela faisait des semaines que je marchais dans un désert d'immondices musicales. Mes jambes étaient lourdes et mes semelles enduites de Minutemen. Alors que des remontées gastriques ne cessaient de rappeler à ma salive l'épouvantable goût des New York Dolls, j'aperçus soudain une oasis : il s'agissait de Back To Black. Je m'y précipitai. Son courant eut à mon contact un effet immédiat ; mes tâches de Sepultura disparaissaient à mesure que je les frottais sous une cascade de Rehab tandis que mes plaies goldfrappiennes cicatrisaient bientôt dans un bain de You Know I'm No Good. J'appliquai enfin quelques gouttes de Love Is A Losing Game sur mon kyste elvis-costellien qui se vida instantanément de son contenu. Une étape inoubliable au cours de cette éprouvante traversée.

I can't help but like this. Especially the Mark Ronson produced tracks - they capture that Phil Spector & Motown vibe so well with just the right amount of modern punch, dynamics, and flair. She has an incredibly soulful voice and her more modern/almost conversational lyrics make the experience more thrilling and not just a revival record. I feel like this is done with absolute reverence for the past while not simply being a reenactment act - similar to the way say the White Stripes' influences are obvious yet they coalesce into something fresh and unique. You can tell this comes from a real place and it is of course a tragedy that she was consumed by her addictions.

"We only said goodbye with words I died a hundred times" (Back to Black) "All I can ever be to you is a darkness that we knew And this regret I got accustomed to" (Tears dry on their own) Tenía muchas ganas de que me saliese este disco porque SABÍA que tenía que estar en la lista y me gusta un montón.

This album feels so classy. Every song fits into an overarching style and theme, yet stand out individually so as to never feel the same as the one before or after. A really neat album that could be at home on vinyl or the crappy headphones provided with your handset (I'm so sorry Amy).

A soulful, beautifully written, beautifully produced record. Definitely bittersweet in retrospect but Amy Winehouse has a beautiful voice and the songs to back it up. Rehab was the big single but Back to Black is absolutely the show-stopper here. All great writing and music, every track.

She came on the scene with an explosive presence. She is indicative of Phil Spector's sound and Ronnie Spector's voice. There's definitely a bewitching quality to her vocals. This is especially present in "You Know I'm No Good." She's one of those artists that could sing the phone book and make it work. "What kind of fuckery is this?" is a question for the ages, and it sounds delightful coming from Winehouse. She sings from the heart as well. No song is a throw-away. Even the minor songs like Just Friends hit that mark of emotion she's going for. The beats are also so catchy on this album. Back to Black is practically iconic now. If Winehouse, Gaga, and Adele could have gotten together...Anyway, this album is a modern masterpiece.

Great album, great voice. Terrible loss at such a young age. She even recognised her own problems in the track 'Rehab', but she obviously had too many demons. Well worth listening to.

“Back to Black” by Amy Winehouse (2006) Always wondered what all the fuss was about. Winehouse’s vocals are interesting enough, a kind of metallic contralto, with little pitch and dynamic range, but adequate control. In terms of composition, there are many familiar jazz, R&B, (early) rock, and even swing structures here, but nothing truly innovative. Some tracks bring to the ear immediate associations with earlier music, especially “You Know I’m No Good”, evocative of the retro swing Squirrel Nut Zippers’ Katherine Whalen on “It Ain’t You” and “Blue Angel” (on the album “Hot” [1996]). Not entirely derivative, but clearly from the same mold. Winehouse’s vocal performance is a distant second to Whalen’s, however. Lyrics aren’t bad—sassiness on display. Not exactly virtue-forming, and attempting to evoke little sympathy, but entertaining enough, if the listener is willing to suspend charitable feelings. A good album and artist, but not great. 3/5

Anything I heard between ages 16-24 probably has an advantage over the others due to subconscious bias - this album included. With that caveat, I think this album is a stunner. It also is immortalized by her untimely death, and makes the songs that much more potent. And what a voice! Really love the instrumentation on the album too.

Por ahí leí el otro día que este disco es el más vendido en vinil, digamos del 2010 para acá, desde el renacimiento del formato. Lo escucho ahora y suena a un clásico. Cuando salió resaltaba mucho del resto, un throwback, un ejercicio de nostalgia, no tan diferente si lo piensan, de The White Stripes o cosas por el estilo. Esto último no es ninguna crítica negativa. Pero la diferencia con otros ejercicios revivaleros de soul aquí el talento y la tragedia personal resltan. Pero me quedo con el talento y la voz, ¿gran voz, no? Parte de la educación sentimental de muchos, supongo. Fue parte de la mía. Back to black, la canción, is some heavy shit. Se siente real. Lloré mucho con esa rola, no por lo que trata, sino por la forma en que canta Back to black, verga. Me mata eso. Qué ganas de irse a la mierda dan a veces. ¿Solo yo? Amy me comprende.

I’ve owned BACK TO BLACK and listened to it regularly since shortly after its release. The album is a masterpiece that propelled the sound of the 60s into the 21st Century. It still feels fresh and modern 15 years after its release. Amy Winehouse’s delivery is spectacular on every song. I could list any song on it as a favorite. "Addicted" may be the best weed song ever. "Rehab" is a revelation. "Tears Dry On Their Own" is a showcase of brilliant phrasing. BACK TO BLACK is perfection.

I freely admit that I've been living under a rock since about 1995. I was of course aware of Amy Winehouse and felt the grief of her fans when she died but I'd never listened to her music. (OK, maybe I saw them do Rehab on Glee...) I didn't know what to expect but it sure wasn't this. Musically, it's a joy to hear such a clear echo of the girl groups and soul singers of the 1960s --- I especially like the sample of Ain't No Mountain High Enough in Tears Dry on Their Own. The music sounds completely modern and nicely retro. Lyrically, it's sometimes hilarious (what kind of fuckery is this?) but mostly it's depressing as hell. I hear a woman trying desperately to numb her pain while trying to sound devil-may-care. And it is obviously so much worse considering how her short life ended. I can't imagine a bleaker sentiment than Love is a Losing Game. One or two songs are misses for me but overall I really like this album. I'm angry that we lost such a talent so early and I hope that she is resting in peace.

This was yet another time when I had known and (really) loved a few songs, but wishing so much I'd gotten the album back in the day!! Upon listening, I was so happy to hear the familiar first two songs: the always incredible "Rehab" and the glorious, sultry "You Know I'm No Good" (I forgot how much I love that song). THEN! THEN! THEN! A glorious, soulful, retro intro leads to "What kind of fuckery is this?" and I think I laughed and yelled and I immediately listened to that intro about 7 times over again and this is when I knew I should have bought the damn album a long time ago. I listened to the song "Back to Black" about 12 times today, because I forgot it was one of my favorites ever and I missed it lots. (I also had missed some of those lyrics! Whoa!) "Tears Dry on Their Own" with the homage to "Ain't no Mountain High Enough" was so cool and good (ran out of adjectives, sorry). I was going to say that "Addicted" wasn't my favorite until I heard what she rhymed that word with. I was so glad to have listened to Solomon Burke the day before, because Winehouse's connection to 60s soul music is so loving and spot on. I read that she wouldn't listen to anything from after 1967. I absolutely love her voice and her songs. I love the instrumentation and the retro feel that still seems fresh and new. I loved getting a top of the tops album at this point in this project. How I wish she were still with us.

I mean, it's not Frank, which I believe is the better album lyrically (there is a rawness to it that I feel was polished off in this album), but it's still a superb piece of music. Hearing this the year of its 15 anniversary, when I'm personally 6 years older than Amy ever will be, just underscores how much of a musical talent she was. I know this will be stuck in my head for days now.

Full of amazing tracks, realized to their full potential by an excellent production team. Original and innovative, propelled by Amy's desire to take from the best of 60s soul and R&B, which matches insanely closely in each of the songs. At first, "Tears Dry On Their Own" kept messing with me due to the Gaye interpolation, but eventually, it established its own identity and became a groovy highlight of the album for me. The main highlight is Amy's ability to combine her powerful vocals with equal emotions that cover autobiographical themes of depression, alcoholism, and loneliness. There's a lot of diversity in these tracks, but most are able to grab your attention. There's ska in "Just Friends," swing in "Addicted," and jazz overlaying Motown-inspired R&B in many of the rest. This is the first album I really loved hearing the deluxe edition, just because I love the unique combination of soul and ska... and also because several of those ska covers are from a favorite of mine: The Specials. Shame "Valerie" isn't included in the normal album, it's just as perfect. Favorite tracks: You Know I'm No Good, Back to Black, Tears Dry On Their Own, He Can Only Hold Her

Great performer and album. Tragic we'll never get to see what she would have done with a whole life's worth of music. This album is and will continue to be a classic. When she hit the scene, it was the right vibe at the right time to be so huge. An updated take on a classic style. I don't listen to Amy Winehouse too often but it's nice knowing this music is there whenever I do want to listen.

Addicted Back to the beginnings, as black and white as music can be, vintage. There’s such as periods of time in history, that all went at once in some band or artist itself, Amy is the voice of 2000s, perhaps the last one such as iconic as it was, plus the genre that influenced so many others after her. In your "I Told You I Was Trouble: Live In London" she can bring all the aesthetics from the 50s and 60s, (beside the fact that all of her drinks during the concert) which proves that she is a better artist live even than at studio. And if all of it wasn't enough, she did in less than 5 years, with your 2 albums, showing that both went in so many albums lists, hope that her legacy deserve more and more while time passes. A

Great but maybe not as fantastic as I’ve been lead to believe. I had this one over the weekend, must have listened 5 times and grew to appreciate it more and more each time. There are some stand out tracks but it’s seems to finish just as it’s getting going. They really nail the genre, the production is spot on and she writes some very poetic lyrics. I think the over hype might come from her wild personality, which the British press couldn’t get enough of. They love to put people on a pedestal but love it even more when they inevitably fall off. But still, a brilliant album and I’m glad I finally got round to listening to it properly.

I'm getting both Amy Winehouse albums on two consecutive days ... What are the chances? Anway ... I'm not the biggest Soul fan on the planet, but I can recognize quality when I hear it. This album is a huge step up from Amy's first collection. The style here is more soul than the preceding album's jazz/swing; in the style of 60's girl groups like the Ronettes and producers like Phil Spector. Every song is different here, and every one is a gem. The obvious monster hit is the title track, Rehab is also well known. But the album also shines in the more unknown numbers like Love Is A Losing game, which displays Amy's more vulnerable side. Iconic. 5/5

Muutamaan kertaan kuuntelin läpi, ja varsinkin hittibiisit alkoi ärsyttää nopeasti. Eilisen angstailuita huolimatta onhan levyllä todella upeita sävellyksiä ja Winehousen ääni on erilaisuudessaan varsin toimiva. 4* vanhoilla meriiteillä, 3* eilisen perusteella. Keskiarvo 3,5 pyöristyy ylös.

Me gusta mucho la voz e instrumentación de las canciones de Amy Winehouse, pero nunca había escuchado completo su disco y no me ha decepcionado, supongo que aunque sea copy paste de whatever música que suene retro jaja, el hecho de que tenga un twist dosmilero y de reggae por ratos me resultó refrescante escucharlo en 2021 de cierta manera. 8 de 10

02/11 - Yesterday I worked on developing the top of wall details at the drum storage building, had a final coordination meeting on the drum storage building, and printed a new set of MFG. I did some miscellaneous items as well throughout the day such as updating the drawing list or adjusting views on sheets. I thought this album was really good. Not one song I didnt like on it or skipped over. Amy's story alone was very intriguing to me and I am curious where her career would have been if she was able to stay clean and continue to outperform her competition.

You can tell this album is big simply from the length of the Wiki page! This was actually the first time I've listened to the full album. I'm scoring highly for talent, execution, legacy and I'm sure it will influence people for generations to come, but I can't give it 5/5. Other than a couple of songs, it's not totally my vibe. I assume everyone else will give it full marks though so that will more than make up for it. 8.5/10

Tämä onkin tuttu kiekko, joskus aikoinaan tuli tätä kuunneltua enemmänkin. Levyn kuuntelu pitkästä aikaa tuntuikin nostalgiatripiltä 00-luvulle. Varsinkin hittibiisit kuulosti edelleen tutuilta pitkän tauon jälkeen. Artistia on tietysti hankala erottaa tuotoksistaan ja tässä tapauksessa mietityttää artistin kohtalo. Levy kuulostaa aika tuotetulta ja muoviselta, mutta tietysti biisien aiheet sopii artistin tarinaan. Mieleen tulee kysymys: mitä jos Amy olisi vieläkin hengissä? Musiikillisesti antaisin kolmosen, mutta tarinan ja ilmiön puolesta kokonaisarvioksi nelonen.

Pitäisi olla erikseen merkinnät tai arvosteluskaalat levyille, mitkä tuntee entuudestaan. Onhan tämä hyvä levy, vaikka tietyt biisit on hyvin puhki soitettuja. Tai oikeastaan puhki kuunneltuja, koska harvemmin Winehousen kappaleita on itse soittamalla soittanut, vaan niitä on kuullut siellä sun täällä. On tässä levyllä niin monta helmeä, että huono on alle nelosta lähteä antamaan. Vitoseen ei kuitenkaan yllä, vaikka Winehousen lauluääni ja tulkinta meinaa sinne väkisin koko levyn nostaa.

Я помню этот день, 23 июля 2011. Мы с родителями стоим в небольшой пробке в центре Санкт-Петербурга. По радио сообщают о трагической смерти британской исполнительницы Эми Уайнхаус. Моя мать поворачивается ко мне с переднего сидения и спрашивает: - Жень, ты знаешь, кто это? Я поднимаю голову и отвечаю: - А хз, первый раз слышу ваще. С тех пор я больше не мог воспринимать творчество Эми в отрыве от этого рокового события. Ладно похуй шутки, альбом, на удивление, неплох. Не так много связи с попсом тех лет, много корней к годноте прошлых лет. Яркие, мелодичные и разнообразные треки, выразительные вокальные партии, сильный голос. Вступительная Rehab будто быстро надоедает из-за своего слишком резкого повторяющегося "no, no, no"/"go, go, go". Just Friends - из-за этого крякующего бита. Мои фавориты - это Back To Black, Tears Dry On Their Own и Wake Up Alone. Уже их достаточно, чтобы альбом оценивать выше, чем проходняк. Далее короткие треки как-то быстро проносятся, из-за чего я об окончании альбома узнаю только благодаря очередному "no, no, no" вступительного трека. Что, впрочем, минусом не назвать.

The first time I heard this I was surprised I liked it at all. Despite her being an annoyingly constant press presence at the time, there is no denying Amy had a hell of a voice. I'm not usually one for female voices, but hers is beautiful, and so strong. Some of these songs are perfect pop pieces. Everything came together wonderfully on this album.

One of the better pop albums of the last 20 years because it rejects the overproduced pop production that has become so common for an at times spacey, live band ode to soul and R&B. The production shines but Winehouse's vocals are the clear star. Her music still feels as refreshing as it is catchy yet devastating.

Impressionante como tudo está bem encaixado aqui ! Amy tem a uma maturidade lírica e uma ironia autodepreciativa que parece ter saído diretamente de uma escritora inteligente e cheia de bagagem cultural da terceira idade com o poder de redigir poemas byronianos, com toques tarantinescos, uma pitada de noir e, ainda que mais escondida, uma doçura que lembra muito as composições saídas diretamente do famoso Edifício Brill. Narra romances, decepções, experiências traumáticas, faz metáforas/associações poderosíssimas e sempre parece estar exorcizando a si mesma, criticando os demônios que saem como Pauline Kael criticava filmes. Mark Ronson, num dos melhores trabalhos de produção dos últimos anos, pega essa característica da artista e, percebendo como seu canto pende para o charme da Black Music cinquenta e sessentista, a faz ser acompanhada por arranjos claramente inspirados no Jazz, no Soul (mais especificamente o feito pela Stax), no Funk e no Blues, criando assim um álbum de aura única, que soa como um renascimento "popularesco" e explícito de cada um desses gêneros no Mainstream enquanto retrata o afundamento e o caminho para a morte de uma jovem promissora, porém problemática. É triste e feliz, é épico e íntimo, é um renascimento e uma morte, é uma figura entrando para história e saindo da vida ao mesmo tempo... Simplesmente "Black To Black", uma ambiguidade pura, charmosa e sensual que também cheira a conhaque e vinho. Amo muito !

Pretty damn good. Amazing voice. Nice modern twist to classic Motown R&B. Very Phil Spector. Not sure if her fashion, voice, lyrics land for me as amazing homage or derivative. It seems to build on the genre by modernizing, adding a darker edge via honesty, depression, swearing and drug refs, but it is also whole cloth just the same old same old. It’s like the gen x punk people who became rockabilly, is it cool or is it lame? I did find the album lacking crescendos, wondering if her voice can nail a few, but maybe I’ve heard too much Adele who filled the void left by Amy. Overall mostly fives on this album, a few lesser songs but pretty damn tight.

I remember when this album first came out, because of the face that Winehouse was always in the news for various drink, drug and relationship issues I didn’t think much of her, or her music. Fast forward 10 years and I’m listening to it one day, and realised that she was an incredibly talented musician who sadly lived her life via her music….or maybe the music told the story of her life. Either way it’s a very sad story and one that should be a lesson to young talent. She has a great voice that’s able to transmit the feeling of the songs so well, again I’m not a fan of bad language in music and there are the occasional lapses into it in this album. We will never really know the depths of her talent because of her short life but we have a little something to remind us of her

It’s hard to get past the cautionary note and forecast of tragedy aspect of this, particularly when the catchy, hooky mega hit of the album is an absolutely succinct explanation of how Winehouse would come to die at 27.

It’s an album to return to (although with a few unmemorable tracks it must be said) and the listener is left to wonder… what if?

Desde la portada del álbum que recuerda mucho a la portada del álbum "Pearl" de Janis Joplin , el álbum destila una enorme cantidad de nostalgia y melancolía hacia tiempos mejores, a través de sus letras Amy Winehouse nos revela a una persona que ya ha aceptado sus demonios y pecados, y apesar de lo mucho que sufre prefiere quedarse ahí  a volver intentarlo, porque sabe que al final volverá a pasar por todo ese sufrimiento, cuanto a tenido qué sufrir una persona para evitar la desilusión de la esperanza.

4/29/2022 Today's Album: "Back To Black" by Amy Winehouse - This is Amy Winehouse at her absolute prime and these are therefore some of her most iconic track. Rehab, Me & Mr Jones, and Back To Black are some of the most iconic R&B tracks of all time and they absolutely do not disappoint. In fact, this entire album is just great track after great track. The whole 60s style that we've heard in albums by Nina Simone and Ella Fitzgerald is perfectly emulated in this album and it truly sounds like a classic record despite it coming out in 2006. All of the instrumentals are really fun and unique because there are just so many layered textures surrounding the bouncy 60s tunes. The production is also super crisp and clean and the vocals have a perfect boost in the mix to give them just enough pop. The vocals are extremely impressive, but it's insane how well the band keeps up and just has an amazing sound throughout. I will say this album does trail off a little bit in the end with some less memorable tracks, but the flow of the record is not jeopardized by this fact. The cyclical idea of this album ending with Addicted and ending Rehab is a great analogy for both Amy's love life as well as her relationship with drugs and it really is a tragic reminder of how early we lost this talent. This is the best album from one of the best voices in music since the 1960s and it deserves every bit of recognition it gets. With upwards of half a billion streams on the biggest track and just around 350k on a few others, this album is obviously being celebrated by many people. So, do yourself a favor and listen to at leas the first half of this record if not the whole thing. A bunch of bubbly, creative, and amazingly performed R&B tracks await you within this fantastic track list. Highlights: Rehab, You Know I'm No Good, Me & Mr Jones, Back to Black, Love Is A Losing Game, Tears Dry On Their Own, He Can Only Hold Her, Addicted Score: 7.5/10 Some of the greatest vocal performances of all time.

The success story of Back to Black is twofold. The first and most obvious is Amy Winehouse, who was the new soul voice in pop that had something to prove. While her debut album, Frank, was generally well-received, Winehouse was still only young. She held a lot of promise for her next album, which would be one drenched in many emotions as she struggled with her relationship with Blake Fielder-Civil. This would be an excellent followup to her debut, proving to be more mature, vulnerable, and refined sound for the still-young Winehouse. Our second star here is Mark Ronson, who is producing most tracks on this album such as "Back to Black", "You Know I'm No Good", and of course the iconic single "Rehab". Ronson had done more than a few producing jobs before this, but none had gained him as much industry recognition as this album. Ronson would net his first Grammy nomination and win thanks to this album, so he owes quite a bit to Ms. Winehouse. His production would hone in on Winehouse's old-soul vocal styles and call back to sounds similar to 1960's girl groups while polishing them up for a contemporary audience. This sort of production work inspires a sort of new nostalgia that audiences almost certainly appreciated. Back to Black would be mutually-beneficial relationship for Winehouse and Ronson as they bring the best out of each other. Sadly, this would be Winehouse's final studio album before her untimely passing in 2011. Perhaps the writing was on the wall, but her struggles with drugs, alcohol, and mental illness would culminate in a tragic end to her life. I like to think that she will be remembered fondly thanks to Back to Black, as a shining star with a golden voice. Ronson would go on to find even more success, particularly with a certain Bruno Mars, but Ronson will always have Back to Black to credit for his breakthrough as a producer. A clear classic for the 2000's.

the mythology around this artist and this album is well documented. Tortured talented artist unable to survive her own greatness. Any way this album is a wonderful nostalgic trip to classic 60s R&B and Ms. Winehouse does it with impressive authenticity. But it doesn't to descend to nostalgia for nostalgia sake (Hello M. Buble). These songs are good and would stand out no matter the arrangements nor the aesthetic. And Winehouse delivers them with style and skill that belie her tortured personal travails. 4.5 stars

Amy Winehouse nunca me ha emocionado mucho. No sé bien por qué. Su álbum me sigue pareciendo okay, pero no me provoca mucho, me da la sensación de que es un sonido que no llegó a ser. Aparte del hit "Rehab" (pop para mí), destaco "Wake Up Alone", quizá por ciertas reminiscencias. Quizá mi hate tenga mucho que ver con esta imagen de alma atormentada, vieja, de otro tiempo que le construyeron. En fin, qepd. 6/10

добар албумчић, инструментали кидају а текстови ми се и нису нешто свидели јер само прича како је навучена на дрогу и алкохол и како пати за бившем (дакле пичка). има неки баш кабаре вајб, солидан 7/10 (вади га инструментал)

Nice, definitely worth a listen. I like the mood of a lot of the songs. Stylish. I liked it a bit more than I thought I might. Perhaps the most easily recognizable voice of the 21st century so far? She was a talent

This album was on in the background everywhere I went in the late 2000s but I never realised how short it is (35 mins). It's pretty good but it's strange that the production and that Mark Ronson sound feels a bit dated when they were trying to make an old school sounding album. The 'Amy' documentary is one of the saddest things I've ever watched.

As unnecessary tragedies go, Amy Winehouse certainly was one. I like this but can't help but feel it was more of an indicator of even better things ahead. Better things we got cheated out of.

My second Amy Winehouse album and again I don’t really get the hype. I’m just not a huge fan of her voice, maybe a bit too sharp for me? Maybe I like it more than Frank, but I didn’t find any song that was very catchy. 3

A pleasure listen this singer. Great album. Some additional info from wikipedia says Back to Black is the second and final studio album by English singer and songwriter Amy Winehouse, released on 27 October 2006 by Island Records. Winehouse predominantly based the album on her tumultuous relationship with then-ex-boyfriend and future husband Blake Fielder-Civil, who temporarily left her to pursue his previous ex-girlfriend. Their short-lived separation spurred her to create an album that explores themes of guilt, grief, infidelity, heartbreak and trauma in a relationship.

I don't like Amy Winehouse or the style she sings (I think it's something to do with a "UK sound"), so thank fuck this is only 35min. Gotta give her points for being a big pop singer but not bringing in outside writers, though. 2.5/5 if I could - not sure if I'll give it a 2 or 3.

The vocals are very strong and expressive, the songs are catchy, and the music is competent. But there's something I've never been able to stand about her music. Her voice grates on me, and the style feels like a boring pastiche of soul and vocal jazz, when I'd infinitely rather go back and listen to Billie Holiday or something. 2/5

Općenito jako talentirana pjevačica, sa dosta poznatim hitovima na ovom albumu, a ovo mi je prvi susret sa albumom. Dosta kratak album, al pošto meni baš ne sjeda toliko album, onda je i okej. Nisam nikad imao neku posebnu želju se slušati ali evo sad jesam i mogu reći da Tears Dry on their Own je najbolja sa albuma. Ostatak je okej, ali osim onako hitova ništa mi ne iskače, ne iskazuje da si ponovno puštam. Možda sam sada okrutan za ocijenu, ali nije to album baš za mene, ali to ne znači da nije kvalitetan.

A very strong start, but deteriorates after the first three songs. Her voice is too reedy for my tastes, lacking depth and variation. By the end of the album the music is distinctly average, slightly better than filler, but nothing special or that will stick in the mind.

It's perfectly done but I don't really care about it. I don't know why. Spot on reproduction of retro r&b soul with some reggae sprinkled in. The influences are plain but not too derivative, and it all sounds great. The tunes are solid. Confident as hell vocals (did Amy open the door for all the jazzy affected female singers in the late 2000s?). Must be current (mind)set and setting. They try to make me like this album but I say C+

Overrated. Her voice doesn't sit quite right with me. The horns also don't feel real? It's not free enough imo. I bet this album would be better if it was recorded with a live setup instead of a studio.

Amy Winehouse's second and final album is "Back to Black". A R&B / soul album that has been nominated for - and won many awards - as well as being the second best-selling album in the UK in the 21st century. It is double platinum certified in the US. A phenomenal singer songwriter, Amy shows that she can produce any type of music, whether it's jazz, pop, R&B, or soul. Unfortunately but to be expected, Amy's death in 2011 caused this album to again top the charts around the world for at least 2 weeks. Although notably, this album and Amy inspired record companies to seek out more solo female talent. This album was enjoyable to listen to, even if it was a little sad.

Not my cup of tea. Production is too slick but also too busy and her voice isn’t my thing. Good lyrics. Wonder if she’d thrown off the 50s throwback stuff she might have done something I really liked. Sadly she never got the chance to truly impress the world’s best music listener. RIP

The info on 'Back To Black' is that it’s Amy Winehouse’s second… and final album. The title says it all: Amy’s back to black (a variety of self-destructive behaviors) in reaction to the breakdown of all her dysfunctional intimate relationships- seemingly, her one and only theme. Amy wants to be more than ‘Just Friends.’ Her play at ‘Love Is a Losing Game.’ Once again, she’s ‘Wake Up Alone.’ Etc, etc. A pitiful two and a half of the eleven songs on this album worked for me. The sheer desolation conveyed and felt on the title track, for example, just bludgeons the shit out of any enjoyment one may have been expecting on this album. Worse still, the second track, ‘You Know I’m No Good,’ finds Amy the cheating culprit, but utterly absent of any remorse. And there was nothing about the song that made me feel remotely sorry for her. Rather, I extend my consolation to the recording crew for having to suffer through an average band that gets little chance to shine, and a group of background singers who, at times, come close to caterwauling. At best, they’re still off-key. Two bizzare 50’s sounding numbers: ‘Wake Up Alone,’ ala Fats Domino, but with an off-putting chord progression, and ‘Me & Mr Jones,’ recorded in such a way that it makes the listener feel as if they were drunk. Amy sure was, or on some kind of mood altering substance. Her vocals often come across as if she’s just getting by. Even the cover photo suggests her emotional weariness. All this, along with a curious deficit of melody, makes listening to this LP a bit of a chore. I found myself having to push through a few times, hoping for better songs ahead. About the two and a half I did like- ‘Rehab,’ the opener, is one of the catchiest yet saddest songs you’re likely to hear. Of course, the inspiration of Amy’s pain is the loss of a man. The real root, however, obvious to us, is the loss of Amy’s self-love. At any rate, Amy’s various responses are standard for addicts: denial, blame, stubborn pride. It’s a good song, still, in its own way. ‘Tears Dry on Their Own’ was the best of the bunch. Amy’s spirit is fully engaged on this one, and with a great melody, and a tasty arrangement. The whole band’s paying tribute to the classic Motown sound, and it’s jumpin’. Had the entire LP offered this, my rating would have risen considerably. And remarkably, Amy was actually touched by a moment of insight. I don’t recall hearing anything like this on her debut LP: ‘I should just be my own best friend. Not fuck myself in the head with stupid men.’ Yes, Amy, yes. There it was, sister, within your grasp. Had you only followed through on your own inner wisdom. The final song, ‘Addicted,’ left me 50/50. Silly lyrics, but to a swingin’ tune, highlighted with a terrific jazz flute. A strange pairing, those lyrics and this tune. And to close an album, too. Perhaps it offers a glimpse into the confused mind of an addict: Well, of course I don’t need rehab. What’s that? The final song on my new LP? Addicted. Songs as good as ‘Tears Dry on Their Own’ on an album as bad as 'Back To Black' leave me both a little sad but also kinda pissed off at what Amy Winehouse ultimately did with her talent; and, the sole, sorry reason why- areas with which I’m not entirely unfamiliar myself.
