Product Description

Product Description

2009 album from the British Hip Hop/Grime MC. If there is one theme running through the magical existence of Lady Sovereign, then it's that of being a fiercely independent creative spirit who, one way or another, was born to be different. From grasping her unique talent for rolling her tongue around words at the tender age of 13 to selling over a million units of her single, 'Love Me Or Hate Me'; the story of Sov's charmed life is one of stellar achievement against a backdrop of the most unlikely of circumstances. Features the singles 'I Got You Dancing' and 'So Human'.

3.0 out of 5 stars Lady Sovereign: Jigsaw June 4 2009
By Goldenroom - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Vine Customer Review of Free Product
For her age (24), Lady Sovereign has already accomplished allot in her career. Despite being young, white, and British, Sovereign is the first foreign female artist signed by Def-Jam records. Jigsaw is her second album.

Sovereign definitely has a different sound than most American rappers. Her sound is a little poppy (somewhat like the Veronicas), a little techno, and of course a little hip-hop. Her newest Album, Jigsaw is listenable, but I found it a bit stale by track 4. The problem is that her songs all kinda sound the same. My favorite tracks are 2 (So Human)and 7 (Guitar), which also seem to be the most distinctive tracks on the album.

In sum, Jigsaw is listenable and has some good songs for dancing, but I wouldn't pay more that 8 dollars for it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Fun & Entertaining! June 2 2009
By FLYingG0D - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Lady Sovereign makes some awesome music! It is not exactly rap/hip-hop, as it has a much more up-beat tone, and change in sound. Instead of having a constant mundane beat that gets old after listening to it over and over, there is a lot of change in the tone. I think part of what I like about her music is the way she changes her voice's tone a lot, which adds to the music. All of this combined make for music that does not have the pattern of an over-used chorus. Most choruses are delightful, and catchy in Lady Sovereign's music.

The music is more jovial, and has a happier tune in comparison to most. The lyrics can be described as "cute" and "fun" instead of the normal and more serious type of lyrics that tend to revolve around romance, love, or a hard life found in most music. The accent also gives the music a different feel, and makes it stand out against the rest of my collection as a unique sounding masterpiece. Definitely a pleasure to listen to!

2.0 out of 5 stars Lady Sovereign goes through growing pains April 18 2009
By Jonathan Oyama - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
With "Jigsaw," listeners can tell that Lady Sovereign's still a little lost as to what kind of music she wants to make.

Lady Sovereign has always dangerously straddled the line between rap and dance club music. "Jigsaw" marks a change of pace, in which the British rap star decided to switch to M.I.A. style rap and dance music.

But Lady Sovereign is not exactly as original or as fresh as M.I.A. Sure, her first song is a hot tune with hard-hitting club beats and squeeking electronic sounds. Sovereign sounds pretty sexy singing in a low alto "I'm weird and you're weird/Let's be mates."

Her next song, however, is a little flat. She raps to some really cheap synthesizer sample of "Close To Me." And with weird lyrics such as "And when the beat went on, and it really ain't f***in' hot enough/You should've seen me runnin' out the studio like Forrest Gump", she really just doesn't do her original sample justice.

Sometimes Sov tries to sing like a diva, as in the title track "Jigsaw," but it doesn't work. Her vocal work is decent at best, but it sounds so out of place with the cheap rock beat and the dull string ensemble in the background.

Finally, listeners will get really tired of her cheesy vocal effects. It's tiring to listen to Sov say "doin' it" with that scratchy low vocoder effect for the twenty-umpteenth time in "I Got You Dancing."

It's a shame, because she has quite a lot to say in her album. There's nothing more irresistable that her song "Pennies," in which she sings "How many pennies have been gone from me?" to a bumping dance beat and some funky wah-wah synthesizers.

Still, Sov's album sounds decent for a rap/dance album. Sure, Sov is definitely no M.I.A., but she still sounds reasonably cool and sexy on "Jigsaw." She just doesn't sound great.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not Quite Public Warning But Still A Great Album Nov. 20 2012
By Royland Odell Owens - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
On this album Lady Sovereign shows she has nothing to prove as the beats and the rhymes are toned down to reach an audience like me, people who don't care about music videos.

I loved Public Warning, because it was a very funny album, but this album showed signs of Sov maturing and gettting away fron Def Jam's image.

So Human and Pennies will always be my favorite songs but I still love and listen to the whole album.

4.0 out of 5 stars Female Eminem of the U.K. July 23 2009
By The Lunar Staff - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Vine Customer Review of Free Product
As Disc Jockeys, we're always looking for great beats to do my mixes with. Spinning discs for radio stations, underground nightclubs and raves is what we do.

Lady Sovereign gives us an opportunity to reach back in the past with our music libraries from artists like: Kraftwerk, Kano, Yellow Magic Orchestra, etc...

Although, lyrically, she has her own style, she seems to be a little repetitive on alot of her songs. Unquestionably, as she continues to grow, she will find herself, both musically and experimentally. You'll see that she's the female Eminem of the U.K., she just chose a different route to start with, but if she stays the course... she will expand her talents as she surrounds herself with seasoned talented artists and musicians .

I personnally look forward to more from this budding artists.
