    I attempt to avoid Nicki Minaj as much as possible but it was difficult on this album...

    I preferred the slower and sensual Ciara in tracks like DUI and Body Party which gave a nostalgic feel and an ode to the lost R&B genre. The rest was noise.

    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.
