L.A.-based rock singer Beth Hart released Screamin' for My Supper in 1999, three years after her debut, Immortal. Producing herself with help from longtime collaborator Tal Herzberg, and playing piano, keyboards, and arranging string sections, Screamin' for My Supper is a mature, fully realized sounding record. She kicks things off with "Just a Little Hole," a midtempo, smoldering cut with organ that gives it a blues/gospel feel. Hart's slightly raspy vocals complement things with a twinge of heartache and regret. "Delicious Surprise" is a punchy, roots-inflected rocker co-written with Glen Burtnik. "L.A. Song," the lead single, explores the darker side of sunny Southern California with gentle piano backing and hushed, understated vocals that make the song thought-provoking and compelling. Other noteworthy cuts include the slinky melody of "Is That Too Much to Ask," with an infectious chorus and smoking harmonica, and the poignant "By Her," which adds strings and accordion to the mix. Screamin' for My Supper is a confident effort that is a bit more rough-hewn than Sheryl Crow but fits comfortably into the same arena. ~ Tom Demalon

Booklet
Beth Hart received a considerable boost from her collaboration with guitarist Joe Bonamassa, but her 2013 album, Bang Bang Boom Boom, finds the blues-rock belter returning to her comfort zone, working with producer Kevin Shirley and running through a selection of songs that are originals; songs that emphasize Hart's range and power. In some ways, this is the purest record Hart has yet recorded; there is a real sense of what she can sing and how she lays back, waiting for the moment when her wailing would create the strongest disruption. That means Bang Bang Boom Boom feels familiar without being complacent: there is no surprise in style but rather in attack, how Hart waits for the precise moment to unleash her fury. Sometimes, it seems that Hart would be well-served by stretching herself just a bit, but Bang Bang Boom Boom isn't an album that's meant to surprise. It's supposed to hit its mark with precision and minimal flair, and that's exactly what it does. [The American edition contains a bonus track: the stellar live version of "I'd Rather Go Blind," that Hart performed with Jeff Beck at the 2012 Kennedy Center Honors in tribute to Buddy Guy.] ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Separating from producer Kevin Shirley for the first time in three records, Beth Hart chose to work with Rob Mathes and Michael Stevens for 2015's Better Than Home. A change in producers helped Hart change direction, letting her depart from the down-and-dirty blues belting she specialized in throughout her time with Shirley, reconnecting slightly to her singer/songwriter beginning while emphasizing deep soul roots. Despite opening with the tight Memphis groove of "Might as Well Smile," most of the album is grandly introspective -- majestic brooding ballads with a clear debt to early Elton John. This cinematic landscape provides a nice contrast to Hart's raw, nervy vocals, accentuating the aching in her delivery. This emotional immediacy compensates for the sometimes elliptical songs, songs that take a little while to settle, but the risks Hart's taken on Better Than Home pay off: this is a distinctive, ambitious record that takes advantage of her natural talents in surprising ways. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
