Beth Hart's follow-up to her 1996 debut, IMMORTAL, was almost four-years-in-the-making. SCREAMIN' FOR MY SUPPER finds the brass-voiced singer moving closer to the commercial mainstream. On IMMORTAL, she sounded like an alt-rock Janis Joplin fronting a grungier AC/DC. On SCREAMIN', Hart retains her tough-mama blues-rock growl, but the album's sound is bigger and lusher, featuring strings, and sampled drums, layers of keyboards from the ubiquitous Benmont Tench. Hart's new songs mostly tend towards conventional-albeit melodically interesting-singer-songwriter confessional plaints.
