Re: Alicia Keys new single - her new album out now!

I read a review which gave the album 2 stars out of 5:


Girl On Fire (2012)
Precisely the same approach as the previous Keys offering, with lots of mellow love songs ("Brand New Me") and a few uptempo dance cuts ("New Day," produced with hubby Swizz Beatz). The tacky title track combines both approaches, with a simple-minded, endlessly repeated vocal hook over an ear-splitting, Billy Squier-sampled drum track. However loud or soft, fast or slow, though, the whole enterprise is notably lacking in melody ("Listen To Your Heart") - almost nothing holds your attention apart from a lovely duet with Maxwell ("Fire We Make," also featuring guitarist Gary Clark Jr.) and the retro weeper "Tears Always Win." The distracting fake Caribbean accent turns up on two more tunes ("Limitedless," with a chorus conceit that smacks of Beyoncé's "Countdown").



Note: This reviewer gave As I Am 3 and a half stars and the Element of Freedom 3 stars.

Has anyone read other reviews/heard the album yet?

Top 10: Ashleigh Barty, Caroline Garcia, Jamie Hampton, Jelena Jankovic, Agnieszka Radwanska, Lucie Safarova, Maria Sharapova, Karolina Sprem, Sam Stosur, Jarmila Wolfe.

All time favourite: Anna Chakvetadze

Besides the first single which I love, I don't think I've heard any other songs which I like.

I had a listen to the songs on iTunes (hence snippets only) and really like Tears Always Win, so bought it. The other songs didn't really stand out, but I'm sure they'll grow on me.

As I Am was GOAT and she should have stopped after that.

Jumping over career opportunities since 2006...
