The late Amy Winehouse’s latest and final album, “Back to Black,” is a beautiful reflection of Winehouses’s fight for sobriety. The album begins with “Rehab,” which has a surprisingly sanguine tone in contrast to the lyrics that describe Winehouse’s reluctance to commit herself to a rehabilitation center. Multiple songs in the album like “Love’s A Losing Game,” “Me & Mr. Jones” and “You Know I’m No Good” deal with Winhouses’s troubled love life and addictions to not only substances, but people as well. The album is a timeless gem that is genre blending and draws inspiration from blues and jazz. However, it still manages to keep up with the competitive music industry by incorporating tones of pop music and a fast paced beat. The entire album is a portal into Winehouese’s internal struggles concealed by unique vocals and prodigious music that can reach any audience.
