April 15, 2009 by Clark 

One of the most unique talents in British music, Lady Sovereign, is back with her new album, even if you hate her, you have to admit she has something. Proof that she is more than a one-trick-pony arrives with new album ‘Jigsaw’, which sees the diminutive rapper turn her original sound on its head somewhat. Now that she is in control of her marketing, promotion and everything else, the Lady Sovereign machine is free to create.

This is a much more uplifting album than previous work. Uplifting and at times somewhat euphoric, it boasts some excellent songs such as Let’s Be Mates, which demonstrates that her lyrical prowess is undiminished. ‘So Human’ samples the Cure’s ‘Close to me’ to great effect, and actually utilizes the music of the original very well.

The title track is slightly more introspective, but on the whole the album marks the start of a brighter time in her career. Mixing pop, rap, indie, electronic and more, ‘Jigsaw’ is a strong album that proves that an artist can produce something decent when given the reigns over the whole thing.
