writes that although the album features jazz standards, jazz purists and academics "may deny [Jones] jazz credibility for her folk infusion".[7] Commercial performance[edit] In the US, Come Away with Me

of the Year, Best Pop Vocal Album, and Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical. The song "Don't Know Why" won Song of the Year, Record of the Year, and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance.[1] Although she was happy about her success, Jones felt bad about sweeping the Grammy Awards. In an interview for 60 Minutes, Jones told Katie Couric, "I felt like I went to somebody else's birthday party and I ate all their cake. Without anybody else getting a piece.[citation needed] Rolling Stone

Come Away with Me
received acclaim from music critics. At Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating out of 100 to reviews from mainstream critics, the album has an average score of 82 out of 100, which indicates "universal acclaim" based on 9 reviews.[16] The album received 3.5 out of 4 stars from both the Chicago Sun-Times and the Los Angeles Times
Los Angeles Times
reviews.[18][22] AllMusic's David R. Adler wrote that "while the mood of this record stagnates after a few songs, it does give a strong indication of Jones' alluring talents."[17] Robert Christgau
Robert Christgau
of The Village Voice
The Village Voice
cited it as "the most unjazz album [Blue Note] has ever released" and criticized that "Jones's voice dominates the record" because "her main writers are pretty anonymous", although he found it to be a "sincere" and "exemplary biz success story in which the good guys win."[27] In his Consumer Guide, Christgau picked out her cover version of Hank Williams' "Cold, Cold Heart" as a "choice cut",(),[28] calling it "a good song on an album that isn't worth your time or money".[29] The A.V. Club gave it a favorable review and called the album "A showcase for Jones' remarkable voice, the disc captures a singer whose rare instinct for interpretation always serves the song, rather than working against it."[30] E! Online gave it an A and stated: "Gorgeous and intimate, the 14 songs on her debut disc ache with romantic maturity and a smart, slow-jam sexiness that belies the fact that, at 22, Jones is hardly older than Britney Spears."[16] Kludge included it on their list of best albums of 2002.[31] Track listing[edit]
