  1. For the most part, Ms. Knowles does more reinventing than revisiting.
  2. The first half is good enough to make Dangerously in Love one of the best mainstream urban R&B records released in 2003.

    Her reach is remarkable. [Aug 2003, p.120]

    At times... Dangerously In Love sounds desperate to reach every demographic. [Aug 2003, p.150]
  5. Before descending without hope of return into the treacle swamp of R&B ballad hell that beckons at the halfway point, 'Dangerously In Love' offers a few passable moments.
  6. Unfortunately, the rest of Dangerously in Love is only intermittently sexy.

This album amazingly brings so many sounds together while still sounding like one. Clearly Beyonce's best album by far, and arguably the best mainstream album in the last decade. Impeccable production, unique song structures, mind blowing vocals, boundary pushing content, everything you want and more from a cultural blockbuster Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Not is the best Beyoncé album, this girl don't have bad albums, but Dangerously is the "less better" album of Beyoncé. The bests songs os the album is the smashs "Crazy in Love" featuring her husband JAY Z and "Baby Boy" featuring Sean Paul. I like Naughty Girl too. Expand
