Rosie Ledet’s playing is solid, and her singing is soulful, if untrained. But what she brings to this music is not your bayou-variety heat. “Roll It Over” and “My Joy Box” churn insistently while Ledet purrs and moans. “Sweetheart Style” shows that she can also be a tad more subtle, though for the most part the thrust of Zydeco Sensation is sex. This is a good thing. The chugging rhythms work well with her choice of lyrics. The sound is sparse, and a tad underproduced, though this doesn’t detract from this memorable music whatsoever.
