    Not my typical musical selection.

    But I really dig this tune.

    I think it's amazing.

    "Domino" is a cool song too. There's a guy on the HRI website that's touring with Jessie J. I believe his screen name is NNajar.

    My only gripe is the canned sound of the backing track. Banal cliched progression repeating over and over. Lots of potential to be far more interesting.

    I bought the album after seeing her on a special on BET. I thought the album was quite uneven and I agree with Scott about the backing track. But she's a really good singer. She writes some cool songs (I think Price Tag is an excellent song). She's cute and she has a lot of charisma. It's going to be interesting to see if she can progress further. After seeing the Jools Holland video, I think she may.

    I like Jessie J. She can get a bit screechy at times live, but I think she has lots of potential.

    I felt the same. The changes are the same Pachabel canon like four chords over and over and over. Tune is catchy and I like Jesse. I just wish she had a real band with an imaginative music director.

    Agreed.
