Editors’ Notes

As I Am is the resounding confirmation of Alicia Keys’ permanent place in the pop landscape. Strangely, Keys chose to begin her third studio album with the ominous breakup song “Go Ahead,” and the ultra-cheesy “Superwoman” (“With an S on my chest, oh yes / I'm a superwoman”), but it doesn’t kick off in earnest until “No One,” surely the most radio-ready song Keys has ever penned. With its fist-pumping beat and swelling sentiment, “No One” is the soundtrack to a Saturday night. While As I Am features some of Keys’ most commercial work to date, “Wreckless Love” and “The Thing About Love” are seductive and forthright, effortlessly recalling the ‘70s soul that has always been Keys’ primary blueprint. In what must be seen as a bid for platinum success, hit-making songwriter Linda Perry collaborated with Keys on “Sure Looks Goof to Me” and “Superwoman,” the latter of which is an embarrassingly blatant rehash of another Perry collaboration, Christina Aguilera’s smarmy “Beautiful.” Still, the strongest moments on As I Am successfully mix Keys’ R&B pedigree with her crossover ambitions. The John Mayer duet “Lesson Learned” is adult oriented pop fuelled by a blue flame groove, while “Like You’ll Never See Me Again” coaxes the listener toward crescendo without ever breaking its aura of suspense.

Customer Reviews

Dette var skuffende

Forigie album var mye bedre, her er det tydelig at musikkindustrien har tatt over styringen og artisten har mistet grunn fundamentet sitt. Her beskruves en lengsel og tomhet der andre styrer. Triste greier. Stemmen har mistet sin fylde, dette er hest. Ser fram til neste album og håper at Alicia finner tionen igjen, en fantastisk artist egentlig...

Anbefales!

Kjempebra album, var litt skuffet i starten men etterhvert som jeg hørte mer og mer likte jeg det mer og mer. Absolutt verdt penga! PS: Og ja, synes også hun har blitt litt mer "hesere", men av en eller annen rar grunn så setter det ett særpreg på albumet.

WOW!!!

Jeg kjøpte dette albumet kun fordi jeg har alt det andre, og "hun er jo bra å høre på, til tider da", men WOAAAAH??? "Hesere", råere, mer direkte og mer sårbar. Overgangene i stemmebruken hennes er så bra at det nesten gjørt vondt! Det er LENGE siden jeg har hørt et så bra album!
