Re: Amy Winehouse, good or bad?

I think she's okay, a good voice but I'm not really into blues

Re: Amy Winehouse, good or bad?

I voted Brilliant - although I'm not exactly a huge fan of jazz/blues/soul either (although I did enjoy Back in Black). I do however, recognise her talent beyond her off-stage antics and crazy eyes!

She certainly has a rare talent in terms of her voice which is perfectly suited to the genre she sings in.

See her 4/5 years ago before the hair/tatts/tabloid obsession & eyelashes took over....

Indifferent.

Re: Amy Winehouse, good or bad?

Great singer, two superb albums so far, proper rock star antics that we don't see enough of these days. If she dies she'll be an icon like Jim Morrison. If she lives she'll be another Mick Jagger.

Re: Amy Winehouse, good or bad?

I love the blues, but think she needs to back off a bit and think more about her music rather than the swear count.

Re: Amy Winehouse, good or bad?

Don't enjoy her music really, but I can appreciate that she is good at what she does.

She should get off the drugs though, no-one really wants to die at 27 and be a legend like Jim Morrison.

Re: Amy Winehouse, good or bad?

I think her singing is technically proficient but I really do not like her voice. I think some peope would describe it as "husky" or "sultry" but to me its a bit coarse.

Style of music - not my kind of thing, does she write her own tunes? It is the sort of style that might be producer-written.

Re: Amy Winehouse, good or bad?

I know someone at Universal who works with her handler, apparently she is a total nightmare, regularly doesn't show up for flights, performances etc, when called up the response is often "I forgot" or "Oh I decided not to do that one".

Kate Nash is great, the album really is good listening. Lily Allen should just find a dark corner....

I like Joss Stone and her music. Lilly Allen I find very annoying.

Re: Amy Winehouse, good or bad?

I really liked 'Rehab' (although she shouldn't have said "no, no, no")
but I'm so so about the other stuff I've heard so I voted OK.

But I think KT Tunstall and Katie Melua are a lot better
