Hearing Corinne eased my mind. She’s a breath of freshest air!

She may be good, but you played her by putting her with Joan. Joan is a woman! A powerhouse! I couldn’t listen to Corrine sandwiched between the original compositions of a master. It sounded very limited bounded by formular (which I’m sure I would never think if I heard it outside the Joan envelope).

          the comparison is the point, sez kalamu         

kiini, i understand your perception that joan is a powerful woman and that corinne is not in the same league, however, the comparison is important. joan was approximately the same age corinne is when joan did her third album. age-wise the comparison is apt. corinne’s persona is that of an ingenue, an attractive young adult who is just blossoming into full womanhood. there is an aura of innocence surrounding corinne. joan on the other hand "seems" to have been an old lady before she hit twenty-five. the main issue of convergence is that both these women decided to pursue career’s in pop music. the difference is that joan found a way to infuse her music with the wisdom of experience, whether joan obtained all this wisdom thru first-hand experience, or thru observing the experiences of others, or (more likely) a shrewd combination of the two, is the wonder of joan armatrading the artist. corinne’s comments lead me to believe that she is interested in exploring the same terrain that joan so deftly mines. here’s hoping corinne will produce the diamonds that compare to the crown jewel of joan armatrading, artist extraordinaire!
