Distinctions 3F de Télérama - Sélection Les Inrocks
The qualities of a vocal genius don't always become clear when she's singing classic material. Often as not, her abilities to both personalize and transcend a lifeless song with a stellar performance reveal the character behind the singer. Both Billie Holiday and Otis Redding excelled no matter what they were recording, whether it was a timeless standard or a studio throwaway. This collection of Amy Winehouse material, released to coincide with the first Christmas season after her death in July 2011, does not contain a strong set of material. Besides the covers, which are well chosen, originals "Between the Cheats" and "Best Friends, Right?" and "Half Time" should not have survived the cut if Winehouse had been around to wield her veto power. But if the songwriting isn’t strong enough to make listeners confuse this with a Back to Black follow-up, the productions and performances are up to her high caliber. Salaam Remi and Mark Ronson handled virtually all of the production work, while these performances by Winehouse are just as strong as she showed on Frank and Back to Black. Thanks to the work of Remi and Ronson, the album is also strikingly uniform; only the songwriting and prevalence of covers or "original versions" reveal that this is a posthumous collection. Ronson's production on "Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow?" is towering, although he injects a little more drama into his chart than the song can support, while a skittering version of "The Girl from Ipanema" (nearly drum’n’bass at points) nearly reinvents a tired classic. The recordings stretch from the beginning of her professional career to close to the end, but Winehouse is virtually always in strong voice; only on her Tony Bennett duet, “Body and Soul,” does she veer into self-parody. ~ John Bush

Amy is the companion soundtrack for Asif Kapadia’s documentary film of the same name depicting the life, career, and struggles of late soul/pop singer Amy Winehouse. The album features alternate versions of popular tracks such as a downtempo version of "Some Unholy War," an a cappella version of "Back to Black," and an acoustic demo of "Like Smoke," her collaboration with Nas. The release also includes live tracks and original score pieces from film composer Antônio Pinto. ~ Rob Wacey

The soundtrack to the Asif Kapadia documentary dedicated to Amy Winehouse offers two types of pieces to its listeners. First, we have the late British soul sister’s biggest songs in alternate versions (e.g. Tears Dry On Their Own, Back To Black, and Love Is A Losing Game, in particular), but also some rare live sessions, demos of Stronger Than Me, What Is It About Men, and Rehab, amongst others. There are plenty of nuggets here to delight fans of the London singer, who died tragically in the summer of 2011. This soundtrack also includes the original score, written specifically for Amy, by the Brazilian composer Antônio Pinto. Pinto previously worked with Kapadia on their collaborative biopic of Ayrton Senna.

A collection of B-sides to Amy Winehouse's massive Back to Black album, this eight-track set features a range of material (nearly all consisting of covers) and functions at nearly the same high level as the A-sides and album tracks -- no small feat. The first track is a slower version of the Zutons' song "Valerie" that Winehouse had done earlier with Mark Ronson for Ronson's Version album (and also featured in the film 27 Dresses). The second is Sam Cooke's "Cupid," done refreshingly simply, and bolstered most by Winehouse's expressive voice. The third is Toots & the Maytals' "Monkey Man," and here too Winehouse shows her talents and adeptness sailing the waters of other genres and other traditions. (Reggae and ska are touchstones here -- also included are versions of the Specials' "Hey Little Rich Girl" and the Skatalites' "You're Wondering Now," the latter of which was also done by the Specials.) Other notables include Phil Spector's "To Know Him Is to Love Him" and a demo of "Love Is a Losing Game." ~ John Bush
