Jaguar Wright

Divorcing Neo 2 Marry Soul (Artemis Records)

Jaguar Wright's sophomore album, Divorcing Neo 2 Marry Soul, comes just as people were beginning to ask, "Whatever happened to that bad-ass chick from Jay-Z's Unplugged?" Alas, Divorcing only glances at Jaguar's potential. Sure, the addictive "My Place" is the perfect soundtrack for intimate back rubs. "All the drinks are free/Ain't nobody here but you/But me," the neo-soul songstress-in-denial coos. But Divorcing's attempt to bring together sounds from the Seventies, Eighties, Nineties, and today comes across as sloppy and inconsistent. And Jaguar's ridiculing tone on "Told Ya," a song about the very serious issue of domestic violence, is more offensive than cute. Overall, Divorcing has too many skippable tracks to be a complete winner as an album.
