  • Summary: This is the solo debut for former Destiny's Child member Beyonce Knowles.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 6 out of 16
  2. Negative: 0 out of 16
  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.
  3. 80
    Her reach is remarkable. [Aug 2003, p.120]
  4. 60
    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.

    Beyoce's writing and producing skills do shine on this project. The soulful ballads and midtempo tracks struck me as the strongest. I Beyoce's writing and producing skills do shine on this project. The soulful ballads and midtempo tracks struck me as the strongest. I must admit baby boy was my favorite track for a few weeks, although it lacked subtance. The one thing that bothered me was toward the end, all that i love you i love you i love you over and over was kind of sickening. she should have just called jay and told him instead of making us suffer through it. Besides that, it's a good listen! Expand
