I was rather surprised, given what I've been reading about her of late, to get an email this morning from Island Records with the subject Amy Winehouse - New Album for Christmas.

Turns out its merely a re-packaging of her previous two albums in time for the Christmas market.....

I really love her voice and at first thought she was going through a bad phase and would clean up and get back on track, but now I've just had it with her. I think she's quite committed to what she's doing (destroying herself) and I get fed up hearing about her managing to turn up for rich men paying her a million to sing at birthday parties and not to turn up for concerts and going on and on about her "Blakey Incarcerated".

Do you think she can recover and get back to her previous form? Are you bored reading about her behaviour and seeing pictures of her showing off her emaciated body in tiny shorts? Do you think she has enough desire to make music again?

I don't think she has any desire to live, TBH.

Ari, I think she has an amazing voice! i've got Back to Black and always playing it! I kept thinking at the beginning.*she'll get her act together* but now she is just on a downward spiral! Sad :thumbdown:

She was unique when so much pop music was bland and unoriginal.
Nothing really changes in the pop scene though.

Back to Black was an amazing song. She did some good covers too. The press were hounding her 24/7. Too many drugs, too much booze. The outcome was inevitable :evil:

There was a good documentary on her a year or so ago. Think it was on the BBC.

With 'friends' like Russell Brand, there was unlikely to be an upside to her career.

I dont think she was overrated whatsoever. Amy was a real talent in a world of tacky 'popstars' and yes, her jazz recordings and performances far outweigh her 'pop' crap.

I really liked her.

Gregory Porter is a good, no great jazz singer. Very cool guy too.

Same here, I never liked any of her music either yet surrounded by for who think she was an angel. Shame she died when she was eventually trying to get back on the straight and narrow, was nothing personal, just not my sort of music!

I agree, h3 jumped on the be and wagon from a cabbie to getting his own show at some point then it spiralled from there.

I do and have watched documentaries on her, as I like medical stuff, wouldn't have wished her dead or anything, just wasn't a fan.
