Amy Winehouse's voice could make a grown man cry. I only know this because I came nearly this close to tears last night during her American live debut at Joe's Pub in New York. The British soul singer is almost as talented as her liver is tolerant. In between sips of Amaretto Sours (or, more accurately, gulps), she belted out her time-resistant songs with a charming, shaky confidence.

The sophomore record Back In Black isn't coming out until March but it's great enough to hunt down now.

Amy Winehouse - "Rehab"

[Snob Disclaimer: Certain blogging elitists feel that I am "so 6 months ago" (more accurately, I am so 31-years ago). And while that may be true, if you were to look at a random elitist blog, let's say, hypothetically, you would notice a quote from "Rehab" as that random blog's header. Welcome to six-months ago. How do you like the weather?]

There's this chick on Pitchforkmedia who calls Amy "just terrible" and says she sounds like Joss Stone. What a clueless fool. Some people will go their whole lives without connecting to soul music. This is a landmark modern R&B record. "He Can Only Hold Her" glows. And "Rehab" is as slick and to the point as singles come. She's 24 people!!
Let her drink if she wants, whatever. She's growing as an artist. Just hope she can keep the drugs under control. At least she's not some fake PR nightmare, and in this day and age that's a blessing. Keepin it soooooooooooooreal. Do it Amy.
