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

  1. Positive: 10 out of 24

  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

    It's hard to sum up the existing musical legacy of Beyonce. I mean half the time, I don't know what she's thinking. She's It's hard to sum up the existing musical legacy of Beyonce. I mean half the time, I don't know what she's thinking. She's said that she wants to be an icon and a legend...so it's kind of unfortunate that her "legendary status" can only be stamped on modern dead cert classics like Crazy In Love and Irreplaceable. You get occasional glimpses of Beyonce's genius at work, but then it gets lost in a sea of medicore and forgettable creations. It's the same case for this double album. Regular Beyonce is actually pretty solid. IIWAB, Halo, Satellites and Ave Maria all stand out like elegantly wrapped gifts waiting to be explored. The spanner in the works is this so called Sasha Fierce side. In all honesty, most of the tracks on this disc sound like leftovers from B'Day. Sasha Fierce isn't terrible (though Diva and Video Phone are!!), but desperately lacking in creativity. Overall it is an inconsistent collection. Potential for a very good record is weighed down by a hasty collection of club bangers! Expand
