  Paula Cole
Cole then set to work supporting the album with extensive touring, both on her own and as part of the first Lilith Fair event (a touring festival that also included female performers such as Sarah McLachlan, Melissa Etheridge and Jewel).
Cole's third effort Amen surfaced in 1999, its songs taking a distinct turn towards hip-hop and R&B, and featuring input from hip-hop artists Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins, Gang Starr's DJ Premier, and even Missy Elliott (who contributed to a track included with the single I Believe In Love).
The bulk of the recordings, however, were created using The Paula Cole Band, a unit consisting of longtime collaborators and former Berklee classmates Jay Bellerose and Kevin Barry (on drums and guitar, respectively).

I Believe In Love: Here, Paula Cole proudly proclaims that she "believes in love to be the center of all things." Not only has this cliched sentiment been conveyed in thousands of syrupy love songs in the past, but Cole has the gall to proclaim it over a thumping, pseudo-Curtis Mayfield beat.
Cole, as far as anyone knows, has never sold her body, has never lived in the ghetto and has never watched her baby brother smoke crack.
Paula Cole has a pretty voice, and her backup band is not bad, but this girl needs a wake up call.

 Paula Cole : Amen - Listen, Review and Buy at ARTISTdirect
Thanks to Paula Cole's appearance on the first Lilith Fair and "Where Have All the Cowboys Gone?," This Fire didn't really take off until nearly a year after its 1996 release; plus, its closer "I Don't Want to Wait" became nearly omnipresent in 1998.
She may tread uncomfortably close to the smooth, sweetly cloying pop of Sarah McLachlan, but Cole somehow became convinced that she was a soul singer.
Despite the occasional sophomoric lyric, Cole never sounds as strident as she occasionally did on This Fire, and the entire album is clearly the work of an artist who is more assured than ever before.

While Paula Cole seems to have the vocal capability to sing in a style similar to Sarah McLachlan, she generally chooses to sing in a style all her own that is different from Sarah.
I had never heard a voice as awesome as Paula's, the lyrics are whimsical and ironic, and I'll admit, seeing her in the video (including her facial expressions) reminded me so much of a girl I was close to at the time.
But the one inside photo of Paula with her head buried in her hands doesn't seem to fit with the rest of the artwork at all.

And the ghetto cliché factory that is "La Tonya": you may join Cole in asking "Lord won't you please save me?" but you will be asking God's deliverance from this song.
She, or he, or some deity or another (Cole is pretty wide open to all manner of religious expression, including the Marianism of the cover photo which turns her into the Blessed Virgin herself) gets dragged in to the proceedings every three or four minutes.
