Songs In A Minor comments
A solid entry in the 2000s R&B/neo soul catalogue. If you are a fan of the genre and haven't listened to this already, you should definitely check it out. Alicia Keys' voice is stunning throughout, filling each song with emotion.
However, though I do like this album, it does have a few flaws that hold it back from truly being great. The runtime comes in at about an hour, which just feels a bit too long. Couple this with the fact that some songs feel weaker than others and you get a record that feels just a bit bloated. And it doesn't help that most of the songs feel pretty safe and standard for the genre. Usually this isn't a problem for me. Not every song has to be groundbreaking to be interesting. But when you have 15 songs on an album, then the more predictable tracks will sort of blend together and fade into the background.
Despite my criticisms, I do think that this is a decent record. It's just that when you shake off some of the nostalgia, you recognize the presence of a few imperfections.
A handful of really good songs and LOTS of filler
I usually listen to rock but this album is just plain infectious...had me at first listen and never let go. My faves are Girlfriend, Fallin, Rock Wit U.
