    Ciara is like a phoenix, this album shows her abillites to make good music. Songs like "Body Party", "I'm Out", "DUI", "Keep on Lookin" and "Where You Go" represent her ghetto origins and dance-pop songs like "Overdose" and "Livin' It Up" makes me feel so good.

    This is a great album with a lot of interesting ideas. Since there's so much positive and only a little negative, it's easier just to say what's wrong with it. So;
    1. Future is only here because they are (were) in a relationship. He ruins "Where You Go." They're individually good artists, but their sounds do not fuse well.
    2. Album art is lazy. But that's not important. We're here for
    the music.
    3. I enjoy Nicki Minaj, and her songs with Ciara are all great, but her vocals seem to be thrown in unnecessarily to one or two songs. As if Ciara just couldn't be bothered to record the rest of the song.

    What's good? Absolutely everything else.

    Great and powerful R&B album, which marks a great moment on Ciara's career! Body Party was a great choice of single. Sorry and Got Me Good should have been included on it.

    One of the best albums of 2013: Ciara's "Ciara" give a great combination of pop, R&B and dance. Princess Harris gave us a doubtful promotion at the beginning but more and more Ciara improved herself in that path. She returned to stay, and is ready to compete with the big names of R&B: Beyoncé and Rihanna. Best tracks include the punching "I'm Out," the sexy "Body Party" and the futuristic "Overdose." Congratulations to Ciara. Expand

    Simply a great album, From the strong and vulnerable vocals on the song "Body Party" to bold and fresh vocals on songs like "I'm Out" and "Keep on Looking"

    Ciara makes a great comeback on this new album, successfully incorporating elements of Pop, R&B, and Dance without making it sounds too scattered. Her vocals work best on more sexy records ("Body Party" "DUI" and "Read My Lips" for example) but the production carries her on clunker records like "Super Turnt Up." Aside from "Where You Go" every song has great replay value, a necessity given how short the album's actual playtime is. Expand

    Ciara is the singer’s most realized full-length to date and one of this year’s most thrilling pop moments.

    This is a pretty good album for fans of dance-pop or contemporary R&B.

    Other than ["Where You Go"], Ciara is a crisp, clean album that doesn’t waste much motion.
