  • Summary: The third solo album for the ex-Destiny's Child singer features songs attributed to her alter ego Sasha Fierce.

  1. I Am...Sasha Fierce does offer two compelling sides of the singer.
  2. Though some of the slow songs have thoroughly memorable tunes, the lyrics are full of bland self-affirmation and saggy lines....But the "Sasha" disc boasts Beyonce's most adventurous music yet.
  3. 70
    She's not there yet, but the effort is fascinating, and hopefully she will keep on this path.
  4. Beyonce still proves that she's an all-around good performer even though her attempt to branch out into an alter ego fails a little.
  5. While this LP is more painstaking than B'Day, the extra effort dulls any emotional wallop; "B'Day," in all its hectic glory, offered a much more vivid peek into the elusive mind of Beyoncé than Sasha Fierce, which often reads more like projection than reality.
  6. But OutKast's "Speakerboxxx/The Love Below" aside, it's debatable whether there has been call for a double album since "Sign O' the Times" in 1987, and this is clearly another case for the prosecution.
  7. I am...amused. But it's sort of like the horrific fascination of seeing a train wreck.

    Amazing album. The "I Am" side is perfect, there is no one with voice like the one she has.
    Halo is one of the most beautiful songs that I ever heard.

There are a few duds that probably could have been left out but they are made up for by stand-outs like Sweet Dreams & Halo. Expand

The firstWhen I first got the album, I really liked because it was Beyonce's. Now, I realise that reality crashed all the "love" for her. The first half is pretty good, especially because of "If I Were A Boy" and "Halo", songs which we never thought Beyonce will make. The other half, is boring: boring lyrics, plain music ( I am comparing the facts with her latest album, "4" which is, her best album in her entire career: she developed, not just lyrically, but also, musically). Too bad there are many stans, human beings who never know how to be realist ! Beyonce is a good entertainer, I met her in person at a concert, but all things have a limit. Expand

    When you think Beyoncé could
    do nothing worse she comes with it. ''I Am Sasha Fierce'' sounds like a
    cd that Suzana Vieira could have done wiith the compositions by
    Thiaguinho. ''Single Ladies'' became a major success in the Complexo da
    Maré, bringing the happiness of their fans and bringing pain to our
    ears.
