John Cale on Jonathan Richman: “He created his own special reality”

On her first collection of original material, Stone tries her hand at a few different genres, including reggae and cramped-sounding uptempo pop. She remains, though, most comfortable in the retro/ nu-soul genre, even if the songs don’t always match her singing in quality. Stone’s technical prowess is unquestionable, but it’s when she holds back?as she does brilliantly on “Spoiled” and the closing “Sleep Like A Child”?that her potential greatness can be glimpsed. Listeners beguiled by last year’s The Soul Sessions won’t be disappointed, but to be a truly soulful singer she’s simply got a lot more living to do.
