Label: Universal (Uc)
It's impossible not to retrace Winehouse's troubled path across these unreleased tracks and alternate takes. That's the point of Lioness, one it makes both gracefully and uncomfortably. The juxtaposition of older material (a ringing "Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow," the resonant "Valerie" rework) with cuts from her lost third album is jarring: That glowing voice is exhausted, slurred on new songs like "Like Smoke" (a stopgap Nas cameo doesn't help) and the Tony Bennett duet (eerie echoes of Billie Holiday here). "Wake Up Alone" is haunted by the Amy we loved: lovely, jazz-hued, intimate, sad.
