    Just listened to The Diary of Alicia Keys for the first time and its epic. Beatuiful melodies and beats and great vocals. I'll give a proper review when i listen to all of her albums.

    WOW! The power three (Mary J. Blige, Alicia Keys and Beyonce) together at a Lauryn Hill concert. How fantastic!

    Quite impressive that 9 years on she's at her peak popularity wise, especially in the UK anyway. "Empire State Of Mind" will always be her signature song now.

    Alicia's in my Top 5 female artists. I respect her voice, music and the fact that produces and writes her music. A real artist. I love her but I can rarely get through a whole album. I just can't. I get to a point where her voice grates on me everytime I listen to her albums. This happens to me with Mary J. and Celine as well. :( So I usually listen to individual songs from each album.

    She has a fantastic voice and it'll be interesting to see how it develops. I noticed in live performances that it has become kinda rough but it's understandable. She's singing and overusing it for so many years now. Her piano skills are exceptional and add to her class and quality as an artist.

    Here's how I'd rank her albums:

    #1. The Element Of Freedom
    #2. The Diary Of Alicia Keys
    #3. As I Am
    #4. Songs In A Minor

    My favorite A. Keys album is "The Element Of Freedom". Wonderful work but admittedly less soulful than her previous albums. "Try Sleeping With A Broken Heart" is a total classic already. I love the i-Heart radio live performance. "Pray For Forgiveness" is simply stunning, "Through It All", "Un-thinkable (I'm Ready)", "Like The Sea", "Love Is Blind", "Distance And Time", "Through It All" are the other highlights on the album for me. I like the duet with Beyonce, "Put It In A Love Song" but it sounds so out of place and as I've said before, although I love Bey more than Alicia, Beyonce's presence that particular song anyway cheapens TEOF's whole vibe.

    "As I Am" is also a very good album. "Teenage Love Affair" (the performance on Ellen with the "choreography" is awesome ) , "Wreckless Love", "Lesson Learned", "Prelude To A Kiss", "Where Do We Go From Here", "Saviour" are my favorites there. I despise "No One". I always found it extremely overrated. I'm glad it was a huge hit for her though.

    "The Diary Of Alicia Keys" is great. So many gems in there. "If I Ain't Got You" is one of the best songs EVER recorded, the passion in her voice the music... just brilliant! "You Don't Know My Name" is outstanding and unique. I love how she breaks down the song and starts talking. It exudes soul. I love the belting after it. Other highlights: "Karma", "Diary", "When You Really Love Someone", "Medley If I Was Your Woman/Walk on By".

    "Songs In A Minor" is my least favorite but it still has some terrific songs. "Fallin'" is obviously her signature song and I love it. "Rock Wit U", "Girlfriend", "Why Do I Feel So Sad", "Goodbye" are some of my favorites. My most favorite though is "How Come You Don't Call Me"! It's so dynamic, laid back and really cool. When she growls "tell me baby baby baby" I'm floored! I loooove it. Another special track is "Butterflyz" so soothing and emotional.

    My favorite A. Keys video has got to be "You Don't Know My Name". I love the storyline. Also, "Teenage Love Affair" and "Un-thinkable (I'm Ready)".

    I don't know what I'd like to hear on the next album. Maybe try a little bit more Blues and combine it with her trademark Soul and her latest poppier direction. I'm sure it will be a great album though, considering Alicia has only offered solid releases so far.

    I hope she has a girl who looks just like her! Random...
    Great read!! I'm th exact same with Mary J and Celine aswell. But I did enjoy all of Mary J's "The Breakthrough"!

    I like her songs and the fact that she writes and produces her music.

    but I don't like her voice for some reason. It's so tight, it makes me wanna pass out.

    Unsurprisingly, I completely agree with you. There was so much attention to detail and I just love the way it flowed so seamlessly. There's so many layers to each song and every time I play it I get a completely different listening experience.
    When I read all these things, I can't wait to delve into her albums!

    when she first got radio and tv attention with fallin' my brother discovered her first and he came to me and said, that I would like this new artist he had just discovered, cause she sounds like Mariah... so when I checked her out I wasn't that much impressed with her (Fallin') but when i listened to songs in a minor I realized that she was going to be a huge star.

    AK is unique, she writes her own music, performs them.. she looks fantastic, is always nice..

    I love her. TEOF is my favourite album of hers.

    Well i'm just getting into her and i'm still waiting for her albums to arrive as I just bought them but I love her singles and think she is so talented and her tone and voice are very unique and I love that she writes and produces her own stuff. And as Sambo told us a few days ago she has never lip synced which is an amazing achievement because her songs aren't too easy to sing. I really really hope I like her albums cause no artist has even come close to appealing to me like she has in a long long time.

    I agree, and her musical outputs over the past decade have been consistently solid.
    That's what I want to admit myself. A few today's artists can make quality albums without relying on looks or body.
