When I first heard “Suffering” i thought it was amazing and had high hopes for Jess. Unfortunately, I ended up being disappointed when I listened to her first album. The rest of the songs on the album were nowhere near as good. The second album is much better though, but not in terms of music quality. She didn’t drastically improve, or improve at all really. The songs were mostly at the same level but this album was more consistent throughout, which made it a better album overall.
I’m still not sure what to make of Jess. She is talented and has a great voice, but I don’t feel that she is living up to her potential. She can be boring at times and you can’t help but compare every ballad to “Suffering” and expect more. I sound like I don’t like her very much, but she does have good songs. I am featuring her this week mostly because of what she could be. I’ll see what she does with this upcoming third album to decide if i’m a fan or not.
