  • Summary: The British rapper releases her second album on her own label, Midget Records.

  1. Soused at the student union bar, licking Haagen-Dazs off her beau in literally filthy foreplay, she's weird and you're weird. That makes you mates.
  2. Jigsaw is ultimately another mash-up of big electro-dance beats and hip-hop swagger.
  3. It all combines into a sophomore effort that distinguishes itself on occasion, but doesn’t portend Sov’s second coming.
  4. This may be a much welcomed return for Lady Sovereign from the wilderness, but in the case of Jigsaw, it would seem that she's missing a few pieces to make this comeback a complete success.
  5. The album--which, like its predecessor, was produced by Medasyn, another Londoner--merely strikes a few new poses.
  6. Lady Sovereign celebrates her freedom from Def Jam not by leading with the (middle) finger, but instead by showing her vulnerability....[But after the first three tracks,] the old Lady Sov returns. [May 2009, p.123]
  7. 30
    While, Sov should feel comfy in this climate of likeable, marketable, off-kilter MCs, Jigsaw is too frenetic to function.

    A bit of a genre change compared to "Public Warning", but still good. Name "Jigsaw" really fits the album in best possible sense.
