  1. Take away the album's lone misfire -- the cliché-filled "Rock the Boat," produced by Rapture and E. Seats -- and this work is nearly perfect.
  2. What's most pronounced is the subtlety of it all, the tastefulness, the lack of bombast and histrionics.
  3. When it clicks, "Aaliyah" transforms the confusion of young adulthood into exhilarating freedom
