5 New & Used Starting at $1.99


Joe Jackson continues his flirtation with "serious" music, which began with Will Power, released in 1987. However, Jackson has not lost all of his pop sensibilities. There are a few moments on Heaven & Hell when the listener gets a hint of Jackson's pop expertise. This album utilizes both pop and classical musicians, including Suzanne Vega, Jane Siberry, Brad Roberts, Joe Askew, Nadja Salerno-Sonnenberg, Kenny Aronoff, and Dawn Upshaw. The theme of this album is the "seven deadly sins," with a composition dedicated to each. For diehard Jackson fans, this release may be heaven; but to casual fans, it will feel more like purgatory.
