Amy Winehouse: Back to Black 12"

Island Records


Amy Winehouse's second album, Back to Black, is one of the finest soul albums, British or otherwise, to come out in years.Frank, her first album, was a sparse and stripped-down affair; Back to Black, meanwhile, is neither of these things. This time around, she's taken her inspiration from some of the classic 1960's girl groups like the Supremes and the Shangri-Las, a sound particularly suited to her textured vocal delivery, while adding a contemporary songwriting sensibility.
