Rock n Women: Joan Jett
antiMusic reports: Today's Rock n Woman is a legend! Joan Jett and Morley takes a look at her new album: You know with a Joan Jett record you're not going to get too many surprises and that's the case with her new record "Sinner". For the most part straight-ahead rock & roll is the order of the day and Ms. Jett does not disappoint. 

"Riddles" kicks off the record, a chugging collection of riffs that is highlighted by a gaffer from Dubya at the end. "A.C.D.C." opines the fact her girlfriend is getting a little something on the side, sometimes with a guy. "Five" is your standard rock fare. "Naked" is one of the better cuts on "Sinner". Simple yet memorable, the song has more of a vibrancy about it as if it was produced by somebody else.[see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story
