Jewel has the perfect voice to sing country music. Jewel mixes it up with up tempo songs with slower comtemplative songs on this two disc set. She sings about love and heart break so well. My favorite song is "I Love You Forever". This is a sweet love song. I also love the hopeful upbeat tone of the song "One True Thing". This is a song about looking for that one true love. I love the beat of the song of the song "No Good In Goodbye". The musical arrangements of this song is very good. I like the violin playing on this song very much. "Fading" is a song about losing grip on reality and committing suicide. Even though this is a serious song, it does not have a sad tone to it. This song is very easy to enjoy and listen to. "What You Are" is a song about how the inner beauty of people in different situations. This song is very moving and thoughtful. I love Jewel's acoustic guitar playing on this song. This is my favorite track on acoustic disc. "Satisfied" is another gem. This is a song is about living life with no regrets when it comes to matters of the heart and love. "As Bad As It Gets" is a song about how it feels to have a broken heart. "Ten" is another song that sounds great acoustically. This song is about how counting to ten can often difuse the level of anger when two people are arguing. "Stay Here Forever" is such a happy song. I enjoy this song too. I love this new music from Jewel. She is really growing as a country singer.
