  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.

    Absolutely the best of her talent, all of the album. B-stands for the best, keep it coming girl. Let Jerk taint your song writing, acting Absolutely the best of her talent, all of the album. B-stands for the best, keep it coming girl. Let Jerk taint your song writing, acting singing, dancing, etc. abilities. Obviously you haven't. The main ones hating are the main ones buying your music and seeing your movies. Expand

    Very rarely will I pop in a new CD, listen to it all the way through, AND love all the songs. This debut Cd from Beyonce moves me. I could Very rarely will I pop in a new CD, listen to it all the way through, AND love all the songs. This debut Cd from Beyonce moves me. I could not disagree more with the critics who give negative reviews. Not only her voice gives the record it's appeal, but the songs to me are unique, there is not a somg out there that sounds like this CD at this time. Congratulations Beyonce, I'm proud of you. Expand

    O primeiro albúm solo da cantora estadunidense Beyoncé Knowles, intitulado de ¨Dangerously in love¨, é repleto de sensualidade e vigor,O primeiro albúm solo da cantora estadunidense Beyoncé Knowles, intitulado de ¨Dangerously in love¨, é repleto de sensualidade e vigor, agradando até mesmo aqueles que não se identificam como fãs. Lançado no dia 20 de junho de 2003, o disco oscila entre os gêneros do R&B, Hip-Hop e Soul e pode ser classificado como um começo promissor. Entre as 17 faixas encontram-se grandes nomes do rap como Sean Paul, Missy Elliott e Jay-z, o cônjuge da ex-integrante do grupo Destiny's child. Ao sermos introduzidos às canções, somos afogados por um maremoto de hits. ¨Crazy in love¨, ¨Naughty girl¨ e ¨Baby boy¨, as três primeiras faixas certamente são o ápice da obra, proporcionando o entretenimento mais do que suficiente para que possamos continuar o nosso longo trajeto até o final do disco. Mas – é claro sempre há algumas pedras no caminho. Músicas como ¨Speechless¨ e ¨Gift from Virgo¨, nos fazem cair na monotonia, enquanto outras simplesmente se tornam esquecíveis, e é aí que nos questionamos se veremos aquela energia cintilante que estava presente no início do albúm novamente. Para a infelicidade de todos, somente as oito primeiras faixas transmitem o que há de melhor no CD. Realmente nem tudo são flores, mas antes de finalizarmos a obra, ¨ ’03 Bonnie & Clyde¨ se mostra um dos poucos motivos de a contemplarmos até o final. Com vocais maravilhosamente entrosados, boas composições e alguns tropeços, ¨Dangerously in love¨ é uma boa pedida caso você queira ser inserido em um universo cativante. Pelo menos no começo.
    Melhor faixa: Crazy in love
    Nota de 0 a 100: 71
