Title - 'Sinner' (Blackheart Records)
Artist - Joan Jett
If you are a casual Jett fan this CD may be good, but if have been a huge fan ever since the start and own all Jett's earlier CD's then this disc is a big disappointment. First of all most of the songs here can be found on the Japan Cd "Naked" which has 16 tracks compared to this 14 tracker. Also "Naked" was the first time most of the songs (except "Fetish" and "Baby blue") were ever released on Cd so it was refreshing. Enter "Sinner" which contains many songs from the "Naked" Cd. A re-record of the song "Naked" which has a line in the second verse wrong that totally makes the song sound rather pointless. The original recording of "Naked" I find much better. The other tracks are the exact same as found on the Japan disc. Don't look for two of the best "Naked" tracks ("Can't live without you" and "Kiss on the lips") here on "Sinner" because you won't find them. "Riddles" is "Right in the middle" better song but kind of over-done a bit. Not a good enough track to kick off the CD. "Change the world" and "ACDC" are the only real new tracks offered on "Sinner" the first song is OK but "ACDC" is easily the gem on the album of the brand new songs however "Five" is still the Cd's saving grace and you find that on the "Naked" CD. "A hundred feet away" is probably the biggest downfall to "Sinner" as it is a crappy re-record of a song Joan originally did in 1983. Again don't be fooled that this is Joan's first brand new CD of new material in over a decade. Thats the biggest joke ever played on the music buyer. 95% of the CD contains songs found on other Jett discs. Instead of investing your money on this CD buy "Naked" and then go to i-tunes and just pay to download "ACDC","Riddles" and "Change the world" for 99 cents a pop! The enhanced footage is just a few moments of Joan looking VERY bored recording "ACDC" in the studio. The liner notes on the "Naked" CD are more interesting then the footage on "Sinner". Blackheart could have done much better then this. Now expect to wait another 12 years for a REAL new Joan Jett CD!
