Back To Black

August 9, 2011
Well, when was I never not in black or something without a hint of black right? I just liked the sound of the title of Amy Winehouse’s song which coincidentally is playing as I type this (R.I.P. to one heck of a talented woman). I hope everyone’s week has been going smoothly so far, we’re halfway there!!

| Dress: Random from Bangkok | Vest, Necklace and Bangles: Forever 21 | Boots: Zara | Bag: Parisian | Watch: Jeremy Scott x Swatch | Ring: Mia Casa |

Okay, I’m so sorry if I’ve been wearing loose t-shirt dresses, flats, tights, vests, etc.. The weather in Manila has been so erratic that when choosing what to wear I always have this little thought in the back of my head which is What if it rains? But what if it’s just hot today? — You’ll never know! Better safe than sorry I always say!

Working on my next giveaway so stay tuned everyone! xx

    The sassy 23 year old Londoner delivers the goods with swagger and panache. 2003s single “Stronger Than Me” and album “Frank” weren’t exactly great sellers, despite being hits with the critics. This time it’s a totally different situation, because she’s appealed to fans and critics alike. Winehouse has a new-found confidence, having slimmed down four dress sizes with more aggressive make-up; she’s turning into the UK’s most promising talent in years.

    ” Back To Black” is a masterstroke of contemporary Jazz-crossover material, all delivered with supreme style. Her razor-sharp singing is a major highlight, however, this album is all about truly brilliant songs, all written by Winehouse herself, with some collaborations.

    Using Robbie Williams’ and lily Allen’s studio wizard Mark Ronson, Amy is going into a totally different stratosphere with this one, leaving Katie Melua and Norah Jones in her wake.

    Amy said, “I didn’t want to play that jazz thing up too much again. I was bored of complicated chord structures and needed something more direct”. That said, Jazz is very much a prime element, though this time.

    Jam-packed with superb songs and impressive production, she’s breaking new ground, though the past plays a big part. Delving, in places, into Tamla Motown and The Specials’ musical ideas (“You Know I’m No Good”), she’s proved to be a top class songwriter.

    “Rehab” is an out and out classic, with many shades of Motown with modern twists. “Me And Mr.Jones” is textbook 60s swing, which other singers like Christina Aguilera are adopting. There’s no question where the title track came from – right out of the Motown school of classic pop – you could just see the Funk Brothers doing their inimitable thing on this – brilliant.

    The stunning Soul ballad “Loving Is A Losing Game” could again be a Motown classic, taking Diana Ross head on, possibly her finest moment, as is the sprightly “Tears Dry On Their Own” : a (slight) remix could well be the next single – and another hit for sure. The triumvirate run-in has ballads using R’n’B beats, and yes, even more Motown stylings on the addictively punchy “Addicted”.

    For one so young, “Back To Back” is truly remarkable, invigorating, and genuinely sensational. She’s not only a diva, but a phenomenal talent, with her best years to come.
