  • Summary: Album number five finds the singer-songwriter seemingly entering an early mid-life crisis, as she dives headfirst into commercial teen-dance-pop territory.

  1. It's the first album of hers that's a sheer pleasure to hear.
  2. 80
    The tunes are stunning, her voice has never sounded better and she makes serious points few others would dare in a pop context. [Oct 2003, p.114]
  3. She has never sounded brighter or more infectious. [Nov 2003, p.117]
  4. Essentially a wanna-be version of Madonna's American Life.
  5. 60
    The first third of 0304 tries too hard to impress.... But soon she calms down and knocks out undeniable hooks. [#17, p.142]
  6. But overall as much as the listener should be prepared to hate this record and its pretensions towards anticipating pop trends, it isn’t necessarily a failure.
  7. 20
    Beats click and rumble while Jewel simpers baby-doll vocals which sound deflatingly calculated. [Oct 2003, p.114]

    Great album! 0304 shows a different side of jewel, a pop side that wasn't seen before the record! "Intuition" and "2 Find U" are the best on teh album and really are great and the other 12 songs are just as good also Expand
