Jealousy is the third track on Tigerlily a debut studio album by American singer-songwriter Natalie Merchant, that was released on June 20, 1995, following her departure from the alternative rock band 10,000 Maniacs.
Reviews of Tigerlily were mostly positive. David Browne of Entertainment Weekly gave the album a B+ rating, observing that, “with its unadorned, keyboard-based arrangements, Tigerlily is more sparely produced than anything Merchant did with 10,000 Maniacs, yet the starkness works in her favor. … The hooks on this album are subtler, and ultimately Merchant sounds both more natural and affecting.” While Browne expressed a desire for Merchant to “lighten up,” he also praised her “uncompromising vision.”
In the Los Angeles Times 1995 Holiday Gift Guide, Jean Rosenbluth awarded the album three stars out of four, stating, “A rejuvenated Merchant sounds considerably more mature and womanly than the 10,000 Maniacs gave her room to be. Positive progress for a talent that is still in bloom.” Wiki
