Re: Alicia Keys new single - her new album out later this month!

To be honest, I think she's strained her voice by singing songs out of her range. She can sound good live on occasion though.

i generally think that Girl on Fire is the weakest song on the album and can agree that there is some serious straining in her of that song..

but like i said in concert i have never been disappointed especially last year at the Royal Albert Hall when it was just her and the piano

Girl on Fire is disappointing, hopefully the rest of the album will be better, Alicia always manages to deliver some real good gems...

I really hate the first single, but I hated the first single on her last 2 albums as well (and I liked both albums).
So I will be picking up this album eventually...

Re: Alicia Keys new single - her new album out later this month!

This album is incredible. I wasn't excited for the album because the single Girl on Fire is utter crap. But WOW, she blew me away with this album. She never disappoints. Brand New Me is amazing.

Re: Alicia Keys new single - her new album out later this month!

Take away the piano and she's ordinary as fuck. People are giving her too much credit for her "talent". She needs to stop trying to proof that she has a big voice (which she doesn't) by straining her vocal cord singing songs out of her mediocre range. Even I feel constipated listening to her straining.

As if Alicia could ever top Songs In A Minor...one of my all time favourite albums.
She has never come close to making a masterpiece like that again but she does have the odd great song here and there, like Unthinkable and Try Sleeping With A Broken Heart

She is so so consistent. From track to track on each album and from album to album. She delivers the goods to her fans.

(4) There is no path to victory for Williams.Keys wins in straight easy sets.
