Jane Doed is the "pierced, badass bitch" alter ego of Della frontwoman Amanda Hawkins, who makes her presence known — and then some — on her solo debut. Straight away, the disc's most captivating feature is Hawkins's voice. Her vocals nearly sear with pitch perfection, and when it comes to lyrics, she holds her own alongside the antics of rappers like Julox, FOE and others. The lead single, "Foolish," features Rockie and is an up-tempo track with a fresh feel to it, setting the tone for the entire album. One of the best songs here is "Save My Soul," in which Hawkins really shows off her impressive pipes and balances the verse from Julox with admirable stamina.
