Don’t mistake the presence of Jay-Z and Beyoncé on Alicia Keys' fourth album as evidence that the singer/songwriter is burrowing into modern R&B — take it instead as evidence of the rarefied company Keys keeps, her status as a superstar so solidified that the only cameos possible are R&B/hip-hop elite. Superstars are often given leeway to do anything they want, and so it is on The Element of Freedom, where Keys dials back the outward expansion of As I Am and turns inward, creating a clean, small-scale collection of ballads and Prince-inspired pop. Always apparent on Alicia’s albums, that Prince influence is underscored by how she’s swapped the retro-soul instrumentation of her earliest music for electronics, but she’s retained the warmth, the throwback sensibility, and especially a sense of reserve, never getting too heated or gauche. This does mean the Prince elements feel more NPG than Revolution, but Keys' trademark has always been an easy elegance. On The Element of Freedom, that elegance is so easy it borders on the sleepy, with Keys’ understatement undercutting livelier numbers — chief among them the bubbly Beyoncé duet “Put It in a Love Song” — so they play as ballads. This isn’t a complaint so much as a characteristic: her voice may crack on “Love Is My Disease,” but Keys never gets gritty; she remains reserved, never letting her singing or arrangements obscure the melodies or the classy veneer of the entire proceedings. All this determined detachment keeps The Element of Freedom from packing a primal, passionate punch, but there is charm in Alicia’s enveloping, quiet cool: she may never break a sweat, but she knows how to sustain a sultry, not necessarily sexy, mood, and she does so here quite fetchingly.

Recensies van klanten

In één woord geweldig!

Dit is echt het beste album van Alicia Keys tot nu toe. Het staat vol met stuk voor stuk prachtige nummers. Van ballads (Doesn't Mean Anything, Distance And Time) tot nummers met een meer 80'ies vibe (Try Sleeping With a Broken Heart, This Bed). Mooie teksten, goede vocals, en de combinatie van piano met moderne synthesizers blijft geweldig! Daarbij is het leuk dat Keys een aantal nieuwe dingen probeert, bijvoorbeeld vocaal (op de nummers Love Is Blind en This Bed)... In één woord geweldig! Een topalbum en een must-have voor elke R&B-liefhebber!

Dit album stelt zeer zeker niet teleur!

Seriously Recommend

I'm not usually someone who can listen to Alicia's songs over and over again, but when this album came out there were so many catchy songs that almost anyone can relate to!

"Try Sleeping With a Broken Heart" is amazing for anyone who is suffering from any form of heartache!!


Na 2 jaar is Alicia eindelijk terug en het is een prachtig en geweldig album geworden.
Een album moet je altijd even een paar keer beluisteren maar dat is bij haar niet nodig.
Na de eerste keer ben je verkocht! Geniet ervan!!!

By mixing R&B with a sultry dose of neo-soul, Alicia Keys became an international star in 2001 with the release of her debut album. Songs in A Minor sold more than 50,000 copies during its first day of availability and eventually moved over ten million units worldwide, thus setting the stage for the 20-year-old's long career. Although she shared the charts with R&B contemporaries like Destiny's Child, Keys' talent distinguished her as a different sort of diva, one who played a variety of...
