XOXO Joanna Angel, the latest two disc set from Brooklyn's finest, throws Joanna into straight up gonzo territory. No plot, no real recurring themes at all, just eight full scenes of hardcore porno action with some 'altish' overtones. So without any plot to discuss, let's get down to the sex, shall we?
Chapter 1 - Joanna Angel And Sean Michaels: Joanna starts this scene off by sucking Sean's cock for a while, and he's appreciative enough to return the favor and eat her ass for a bit. She blows him again and then he fucks her from behind for a while before laying back so that she can ride him cowgirl and reverse cowgirl on the stairs. He shifts gears on her and stands her up to fuck her ass before they go for a bit more reverse cowgirl action, anally this time. After pummeling her ass for a good long while Sean pulls out and shoots his load into Joanna's mouth to finish a fairly enthusiastic and reasonably steamy scene.
Chapter 2 - Joanna Angel, Alec Knight, Tony T. And Steve Holmes: This scene starts off with each of the three guys getting a shot at Joanna's various orifices. It starts off with Tony spoon fucking her before slipping his cock into her mouth. Alec is up next and finds himself the lucky recipient of a pretty serious blowjob before Steve moves in and Joanna slips his willy up her ass and rides him reverse cowgirl style. Once the single sessions are over, the three guys take turns fucking her ass, pussy and mouth all at the same time before all three of them blow wads onto her face for the big gooey finish.
Chapter 3 - Joanna Angel And Mick Blue: Sporting some fetishy wardrobe, Joanna takes charge in this scene that starts off with her sucking him off before laying him back and riding him cowgirl style. She blows him, rides him some more, and then sits on his face before sliding him into her ass reverse cowgirl style and riding him some more. She blows him, rides him with her ass again, and then pulls off so he can come into her hands.

Chapter 4 - Joanna Angel And A Big Black Dildo: Joanna is looking good in a formal evening gown wandering around the warehouse district. She finds an abandoned loft, heads upstairs, and starts fingering herself for a bit. She pulls out a big black dildo and fucks her ass with it while down on all fours.
Chapter 5 - Joanna Angel, Roxy Deville, Mick Blue And Mr. Pete: This scene starts off with Joanna and Roxy kissing one another and applying some light lesbian love here and there by way of some well placed tongues and wandering hands. Roxy takes Joanna upstairs where the two guys are waiting for her - the room is dark and the rest of the scene is shot with nightvision filters. The girls take turns sucking cock and riding the two guys until the two guys pull out and blow their loads all over Joanna's face. Good thing Roxy is on hand to help her clean up.
Chapter 6 - Joanna Angel, Tony T., Steve Holmes, Will Powers, John Strong And Mr. Pete: Joanna has the guys stand up so that she can take turns sucking all of their cocks. She bends over and gets fucked from behind, her mouth still full of dick, and then she gets DP'd doggy style, and while lying on her stomach. At one point, for a few seconds, she takes two cocks up her ass, and a half an hour of double penetration later the three guys blow all over her face and cleavage.
Chapter 7 - Joanna Angel And James Deen: James gets Joanna in the mood by rubbing her box for a bit before she slips him in. They spoon fuck for a while and she sucks his dick and strokes him before he fucks her from behind. He eats her pussy and then fucks her while she lies on her back and then pulls out and shoots his load onto Joanna's stomach to finish the scene.
Chapter 8 - Joanna Angel, Cali Nova, Alex Gonz, John Strong, Alan Stafford, Kris Slater and Brian: The gaggle of men are all standing around the bar while Joanna gets down on her knees and starts sucking as much cock as she can manage. Cali Nova shows up and joins in, letting Joanna finger her pussy and nibble on her clit and assisting with some cock stroking in the background. At one point two of the guys hold Cali up with her legs spread wide so that Joanna can get right in there and chow down while stroking a dick with each hand. She jerks each guy off into a plastic cup and gulps it all down to finish the scene and the feature.
Handled with a good sense of humor and directed, by James Deen, with a fair bit of style, XOXO Joanna Angel is a fun gonzo entry from the Burning Angel crew. The scenarios show some creativity and Joanna fucks like a champ in each and every one of the eight scenes that make up this two-disc set. There's a plenty of stroke-worthy material here to please pretty much everyone and while the focus this time around seems to be on anal and DP, there's enough variety between the different scenes to give this one a fair bit of replay value as well.
The shot on digital video 1.78.1 anamorphic widescreen image is pretty crisp with only some mild edge enhancement keeping it from a higher grade. Colors look nice and lifelike, flesh tones as well, and the black levels remain strong throughout. There are a couple of spots where some low level video noise is present, but these are few and far between and overall this presentation looks pretty good.
The English language Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo track is clean and clear without any evidence of hiss or distortion, however there are more than a couple of spots where the levels fluctuate a fair bit but it's never too harsh. Other than that, there are no problems here. There's plenty of bass in the low end of the soundtrack, and the high end is crisp without any tinny effects or break ups in the audio.
The only substantial extra on this release is a Behind The Scenes (59:51) segment that is made up of some interviews and some random behind the scenes footage. There is some bonus hardcore activity in here but most of it is the cast goofing off and talking and relaxing on set. Trailers for other Burning Angel releases can be found, as can a decent sized still gallery and a web-link. Animated menus and chapter/scene selection options are also included.
XOXO Joanna Angel is a step or two above your average gonzo feature thanks to some decent variety, a good sense of humor and some interesting ideas and scenarios. While Burning Angle's strongest material can be a little more creative, this is still a very solid effort and the sex scenes are plentiful and well executed. Recommended for Joanna's loyal legion of fans.
