I thought that too, but we were both wrong. OK, I first thoguht Love Is A Garden was really cheesey, but not anymore! I loveses it!

You all know im obsessed with 0304. Though i never liked Haunted intill now. I love it now! That just like how my favorite Spice Girls Cd is Forever, and i just now listened and loved 2 of the songs on it: even though it was my favorite CD already.

Hi everybody:
I wanted to let my opinion too.
I love all of the melodies put in that record and specially the lyrics. And I do not understand how so many people took the videoclip Intuition in a so bad direction. It was totally did it on purpuse and in a ironic and funny way.
I sincerally think sometimes people are stupid.
I definitelly donīt like the "pop" scene but I think every way of expression should be respected as this record would be.
And I admire her for take the risk of put against her own to anyone who doesnīt like it.
I know many of you have said that you like this CD I donīt mean you at all.
I mean all the media stuff and people who think that their words mean much more than anyone elses words. People who thinks that they got the right and everyone else are wrong.
I hate that kind of people!!!! So if someone like that is reading this "DONīT BOTHER YOURSELF ANSWERING ME" :P
Take care, Sonne

I like it. It's a good studio production. Many nice sound details in the songs. The mixing is great. I have always loved dance music. Jewels voice works great on the dance inspired tracks! The album has lots of energy, like a dance albums should have! Combined with Jewel's clear and amazing voice, it's magic!

And yes, I think Intuition video was done on purpuse, Just listen to the lyrics, it says it all: "You look at me but you're not quite sure Am I it or could you get more? You learn cool from magazines" This one is also to the music industry. And listen to what Jewel says on Live at the Humprey's DVD "Oh, she took her coat off, thats what i want people to love me for" ... That is a very honest Jewel talking... Jewel want her fans to love her for her music ,,, lyrics and voice... So nice

And it's not a plain bubblegumalbum, oh no But yes, it have some bubblegum parts... I tell you, Jewel's lyrics are fare away from generic bubblegum lyrics.

For me people tend to judge before to listen... Iīm not blaming anyone for this.
Itīs just like the way it is.
The first time I heared any sign of this album was seeing the video of Intuition... No! I lied... the first time was seeing DIVAS (when she sang with Beyonce "Proud Mary" what a voice, Jewel!!! you thrilled me you also sang Intuition there) but I remember to watch the video and couldnīt stop laughing. It was make so cool and take fun of everything that I just couldnīt help to smile. I loved that "laugh-maker" video and the lyrics are just perfect!!!
I like very much the CD, cause no matters what anyone else says, for me itīs your spirit who appear in each song and dance on it from the begin til the end!!!
From me you will only receive a "Good job, Jewel"
Take care, Sonne

I cannot agree more with the above. Didn't care for Jewel until Intuition, but after I bought the album and went to the concert, I bought everything Jewel ever made. It just takes one small event to open up a whole new world.

Speaking of which... Ride with the Devil was on the Independent Film Channel. I scanned through it, and I must admit, I only watched the sections that Jewel was in. So my point is, I would never have bothered to watch a civil war movie had it not been for 0304.

So 0304 helped me learn American History.... is that a stretch?

My opinions on 0304 have changed and mellowed over the years.

At first I didn't care for it too much.....but I admit it has grown on me! I listen to this album (minus the song 'Haunted', which I feel doesn't quite fit in too well w/this album) to workout to all the time. It really energizes me! It's also great to listen to while driving, just roll down those windows and blare it! :-)

The conclusion I have to come to regarding 0304 is that it is SMART POP. There really isn't any fluffy filler, no meaningless so much "pop" today. All of these songs can (and a few have been) performed acoustically, and they still stand on their own in Jewel's regular repertoire. Once you have gotten used to the overall sound of this album, pay more careful attention to the lyrics and their underlying message. They can be serious, more deep and meaningful than the sound that accompanies them...

I feel this is how Jewel intended it - for the sound to almost contradict the lyrics; almost as if she is testing the listener to see if they can think beyond the sound, if are really paying attention...

That, my friends, is true creativity!

I totally agree. I'm glad you came back to post on this. I've been doing a lot of listening to 0304 lately. Like you said, in the car with the windows down. It's really good and also gets me upbeat and my blood flowing on my way to work at 6:30 in the morning! and the lyrics are very smart.. The thing about 'Haunted' is that you have to wait til it picks up in the middle of the song. I think it fits very well, it just starts out slow and seems to sort of change the pace of the album, but I like it

so close no matter how far
couldn't be much more from the heart
forever trusting who we are
and nothing else matters
