Favorite Albums of 2013 – #15: Joan Jett & the Blackhearts

15. Joan Jett & the Blackhearts – Unvarnished

Joan Jett needs a title at this point. The Grand Dame of Rock? Throughout her long career, she’s been a mainstay in the rock world. The last few albums have been overlooked by the public and for mostly good reason. They were bland and forgettable. Well, she’s got her mojo back. Unvarnished is chock-full of ditties that would make younger Joan Jett proud. They are full of the hooks, the riffs and the snarls you’d come to expect from her 80’s output. Sure, there is nothing here that is a true stand-out single, but the collection is constant and enjoyable.

Favorite songs: “Any Weather (606 Version)” | “TMI” | “Fragile”

The entire list… so far.
