Amy Winehouse’s Last CD: Review

Helen Brown says: ‘Listening to Amy Winehouse’s “last album” [“Lioness: Hidden Treasures“] reminded me of passing the tributes left by fans outside her Camden home after her death from alcohol poisoning this July. The random scrappiness of this collection of alternative takes, covers and sketchy new material is made poignant by the context in which it has been released. And – as with that exposed and emotional pavement collage of bottles, candles, ashtrays, scrawled notes and battered guitars – it lays bare what made her both such a unique and such a troubled artist.’
