I know this will be unpopular with some, but I really like her most recent "pop" offerings, from AOTS through APOC. Awakening is her best album to date in my opinion and while I really loved "Your Love", "Open Fields of Grace", "Made to Dream" and others, "With or Without You" and "My Immortal" are standouts. I have great expectations for the new album (or EP if that comes to pass) with her "new" pop voice.
Do you like Jackie's classical voice better, her pop voice better, or do you like both equally?
Nothing can compare with Jackie's classical voice. It's what initially drew me to her. But, she is only 16 and, with a lifetime of singing ahead of her, I'm OK with her experimenting and trying different genres, as long as when the dust settles, she comes back to her roots. JMO ☺♪♫
I would be a hypocrite if I said I didn't hope for her to focus on classical. But I would be without heart if I didn't wish her the best no matter which path she chose. So, Jackie, it's up to you...just do it.
I think what I am going to say may be a little unpopular, but I am not a fan of her pop voice. Her classical voice is what allows her to stand out and has the rare ability to touch people. While I am happy to see Jackie experimenting and trying out different genres, I sincerely hope that she will always stick to her roots as she has mentioned so many times.
I am pretty sure that Jackie will stick with her roots of CC. After all, most of her public appearances have been mostly CC songs other than her official concerts which now seem to be a mix of everything Jackie likes.
Me too. While Jackie's Classic voice has served her well, I think if she is to make a break out hit it'll be along the lines of Apocalypse. I do love her classic voice, but the newer material is exciting too.
Me four! I for one am enjoying Jackie's versatility and willingness to experiment with new material beyond that which had brought her to public attention in the first place. She's got this remarkable voice and as she continues to grow and mature in age, of course she is going to explore what else she can do with it. We're in for quite the ride!
I just didn't like the song itself. It lacked the depth, complexity, beauty and the ability to generate emotions that other Jackie songs have managed to evoke.
I agree about depth and complexity, but I liked the presentation and Jackie really seemed to have fun making it. The simplicity of just her voice with the guitar was beautiful even if the subject matter of the song was frivolous. I had not heard the song before Jackie sang it and after hearing Taylor Swift's version shockingly I preferred Jackie's. Different strokes for different folks I guess.
rickolsen: Phoenix is the only one who sleeps on my dresser. I have a nice spot for her there with a nice comfortable comforter to lie on. It is thicker than a regular blanket. It is a small dresser. No mirror or anything like that. She likes it.

rickolsen: I ordered a case of paper towels again from Ebay a couple of weeks ago. 30 rolls. They are good paper towels. I like Ebay better than Amazon. Shipping is always free and they ship fast. I always get my stuff before I'm supposed to. Shop Ebay.

rickolsen: I told you about my Walmart fiasco and then I deleted it. I'm telling you again. I left my dry cat food in the cart in the parking lot when I loaded my car with my purchases. I realized at home later so I went back to Walmart. I had my receipt so "con"

rickolsen: they gave me a free replacement bag and my cats got their food. If Walmart hadn't done that I would have just got another bag because my cats need their food. It was nice of Walmart. Make sure you check your cart before you leave the store.

rickolsen: I gave my cats some gravy dinner 15 minutes ago. They are sleeping now. Brandie and Sampson are on the loveseat. Phoenix is on the couch. I'm watching football and eating some lasagna. It is really good.

rickolsen: I gave my cats some gravy dinner a couple of hours ago. Brandie and Sampson are sleeping on the loveseat. Phoenix is sleeping in on my bed. I am watching football and munching raw broccoli. Broccoli has lots of vitamin C. It is good for winter.

rickolsen: It was 38 degrees today. 40 years ago it would have been 0 or lower. We have less than 6 inches of snow on the ground. 40 years ago we would have had at least 4 feet. Michigan winters are vastly different from what they were in the 60's.

rickolsen: I ordered my aftershave on ebay like I always do. Bay Rum. I like the smell of it. I had to go to the post office to pick it up. One bottle was leaking. I get 2 at a time. About half the bottle was gone. This is the only problem I have ever had with ebay.

rickolsen: I take it back. Once I got a bucket of cat litter and it had no handle. That wasn't ebay's fault. That was the shipper. Really my aftershave wasn't ebay's fault either. Shipping accidents sometimes happen. I still love ebay and will continue to use them.

rickolsen: I'm munching corn chips and watching football. I like corn chips better than potato chips. Phoenix and Sampson are sleeping in on my bed. Brandie is preening herself on the love seat. She will be sleeping soon. I have a good life. I love my cats.

rickolsen: Brandie is sleeping, so all 3 of my cats are sleeping now. I gave them gravy dinner about an hour ago. I'm watching a good football game. Peyton Manning is creaming Arizona. I'm going to eat a couple of cucumbers now. They are so good.

rickolsen: I got some Greek pasta salad, cole slaw, and deviled egg potato salad today. The Greek pasta salad has lots of feta cheese. I love feta cheese. I gave my cats some gravy dinner a while ago. They will be sleeping soon. I'm eating Greek pasta salad.
Feb 1, 2020 13:33:56 GMT -5
rickolsen: My cole slaw is gone. I've got half the Greek pasta salad and potato salad left. I'm not supposed to eat pasta or potatoes, but my doctor said I can eat them in moderation. When you are diabetic you can't eat anything good or cheap. I eat what I want.

rickolsen: My cats are all sleeping. Phoenix and Sampson are in on my bed. Brandie is on the loveseat here in the livingroom with me. I'm watching football and munching corn chips. If you like corn chips get Great Value corn chips at Walmart. They are really good.

rickolsen: It is 10:00 am. My cats are all sleeping. Phoenix and Sampson are in on my bed. Brandie is on the love seat. I didn't give them gravy dinner because they didn't ask for it. When they do I will give it to them. I'm watching football.

rickolsen: I just gave my cats some gravy dinner. Prime filet chicken. They like that kind. They are gobbling it down. They will be sleeping soon. I'm watching football.
