The Two Sides Of Jewel: 'Sweet And Wild' In the s, the singer-songwriter's debut album helped usher in a new wave of female musicians and established her as a folk powerhouse.

Over the next decade, Jewel's repertoire expanded to include pop and country music.

There's nothing fluffy about optimism. The father came and turned the TV off and punished the children because they weren't allowed to watch black people on TV.

We are each others angels in the way that we answer each others prayers and we can also make each others lives miserable. In silence you hear who you are becoming. You create yourself. The things you fear are undefeatable not by their nature but by your approach.

Find pleasure in common things. Whether it's just the way the sunlight is streaming in the window or how an orange tastes when you're really hungry, you'll find you get little, happy lifts throughout the day. I never wanted braces Although the opener "Sundering Jewel"s atmosphere oriented piano gives the initial impression of the band fusing a strong classical sound into rock, "Hijacked" goes for something new, treading close to jazz fusion instrumentation and the syncopated rhythms of post-punk.

Although The Former Life flirt with the prospect of sounding scattered and aimless by incorporating so many different sounds into their sonic brew, "Electric Stillness" saves itself by reintroducing these styles again throughout the album. The most pronounced element of The Former Life's sound consists of a modern-sounding take on progressive rock. Perhaps somewhat like the style legends Porcupine Tree, the vintage prog sounds of synths and soaring guitar leads are fused into what is otherwise a rock style very aware of its contemporaries.

Indeed, this idea of fusing the old and new is a concept about as old as progressive rock itself, but The Former Life do it a good service. Often, the band will explore several different styles within a different song, and the transitions are kept smooth, thanks to a focused approach to songwriting. Even above the impressive guitar work, the vocals are the strongest part of the band. They're both pleasantly dramatic and melodic, and do well to compliment the music's slightly melancholic atmosphere.

The Former Life do all of these things with a generally mellow approach, and although it would have been nice to hear "Electric Stillness" leap out with something more assertive once in a while, each song is solid and memorable, thanks largely in part to the vocal melodies.
