Amerie - TouchAmerie has been better known across the pond than anywhere else, but with "Crazy In Love Part 2" ie. first single "1 Thing" being a UK hit already, things are looking bright for the R&B singer.

Numbers such as "All I Need" and "Not The Only One" may seem a little boring at first, but give it a few spins and you will be singing them all day long. Now and then Amerie comes back to a more familiar territory, in "Rolling Down My Face" and "Like It Used To Be", which will please those who enjoyed her debut "All I Have".

What strikes as disappointing is the title track, a mediocre take on crunk. From lyrics through the tune, to vocals everything is weak and seems out of place.

Album No. 2 in Amerie's career may have taken her into the hits category, yet as a whole it doesn't live up to the expectations set by her fine debut.
