    Jessie J’s latest pop-tacular, slightly uneven effort, Alive, sheds the Katy Perry rainbow for a much rougher, more interesting shade of Pink--both the artist and the color.

    For most of the album, however, Jessie J shows how wide her range is.

    It's by no means a bad record, although the ballads are best avoided.

    As it stands, Alive is too easy to ignore.

    Probably one of the best albums of 2013. "Alive" is an excellent album, not connected like "Who You Are", but still excellent! Jessie J'sProbably one of the best albums of 2013. "Alive" is an excellent album, not connected like "Who You Are", but still excellent! Jessie J's voice shows that she is an incredible singer. The songs I love from this album are Breathe, Alive, Magnetic, Excuse My Rude and mainly Sexy Lady, the biggest hit of the album in my opinion. It should be a single. It's My Party isn't that bad, but I think it crashes the album connection and meaning, it appears to be some randomly release track.
    The bad things about the album are that the singles choices were made wrong and the album promotion is horrible (but expecting from Island this is what we get...). I hope after the US version release of "Alive" Jessie get more recognition with this excellent work.

    This album is actually pretty good. She can sing her a*s off as prooved on "I Miss Her". She does her best in "Unite" and "Breathe", bothThis album is actually pretty good. She can sing her a*s off as prooved on "I Miss Her". She does her best in "Unite" and "Breathe", both co-written by Sia and produced by StarGate. Probably the weakest song on the album is "It's My Party". The sounds are good, her vocals are amazing, good album overall. Expand

    While the main two singles from the album (Wild and It's my party) are as generic as it gets, the album itself is composed of 16 well thought,While the main two singles from the album (Wild and It's my party) are as generic as it gets, the album itself is composed of 16 well thought, well presented tracks that showcase perfectly the powerhouse Jessie J's voice is. As a whole, the cd might come off as chaotic, and it gives the impression that the tracks were just thrown in there without much thought, but when listening to the tracks alone you quickly realize the hidden beauty that Alive is.
    Favourite tracks: Hero, Magnetic, I Miss Her, Harder We Fall and Excuse My Rude
    Most hated songs: Wild and Conquer the world

    Don't waste your time with this, generic and boring. Jessie is a good singer, but she can't make good music. She is lost on the pop industryDon't waste your time with this, generic and boring. Jessie is a good singer, but she can't make good music. She is lost on the pop industry and no one cares about her. Expand
