    Jolie is the best thing to happen to music since the gee-tar.

    Fantastic. The best artist I have come across in quite some time. Holland can sing the blues with the best of them.

    It really is incredibly good, even if sometimes it's hard to feel you're hearing the real Jolie and not a character she's adopted. [Jun 2004, p.110]
  3. It's the voice that does it - all hazy smoke and dusty cotton, this time sounding like she's channelling Billie Holiday.
