Joan Osborne is one of those artists who asks the question 'Who is God?' and points at you and me with the answer in 'One Of Us' which is track no. 6 on her second album, titled 'Relish'. While this track is probably the most widely known, every single track on this album is a masterpiece. (The same goes for her third album, 'Righteous Love' which I personally like - what 'like'… _adore_ - even more! Both are absolutely worth having in your CD-collection. Joan's music is emotional, her voice is strong, sexy and beautiful, the lyrics depicts intelligence and after having listened to her songs, you sure have received something valuable. A quote from Joan Osborne: "I haven't really thought about trying to do something that's current or hip right now. There's an Oscar Wilde quote: 'Beware of being too fashionable, or you'll soon be unfashionable'. I try to dig at the roots of the things that I'm drawn to, because those things, to me, are timeless. And if I take my inspiration from that, there's a greater chance the music I make will also be timeless."
