No roar in ‘Lioness,’ only sad truths
Amy Winehouse’s first album since her death is tragic for all the wrong reasons. It doesn’t suggest that the late British singer, who died of alcohol poisoning in July, had another modern soul masterpiece in the pipeline. Quite the opposite. “Lioness: Hidden Treasures’’ scrapes together 12 songs that Winehouse never released for a simple reason: Most of them are not worthy of her talent and certainly don’t add to her legacy.
