    Blah, blah, blah. I am so sick of bad girls promoting their badness. Get your ass inro the rehab that you disdain so that you can have a career, you little cunt.

    rich drunken british brat attempts to complain about being depressed and recreate soul in an era where there is none.

    Nice eye candy but there's nothing new here. Imagine a drunk, british Fergie with worse beats. Come 2008 we'll be seeing Amy Winehouse in the 'One Hit Wonder' bin along with Rico Suave and The Vengaboys.

    Rename: "Whinehouse" because that's pretty much all she does; whining.

    She has a pretty nice voice, but she lacks something. Sure, she's different, but different doesn't equal an automatic "wow that rulz".

  1. Back to Black stands in testament to the fact that talent and originality still exist.

    It's precisely Winehouse's lyrics... that raise this expertly crafted set into the realm of true, of-the-minute originality. [16 Mar 2007, p.67]

    [It] sounds fantastic--partly because the production nails sample-ready '60s soul right down to the drum sound' and partly because Winehouse is one hell of an impressive singer. [Apr 2007, p.121]
