  • Summary: The third solo album for the ex-Destiny's Child singer features songs attributed to her alter ego Sasha Fierce.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 10 out of 24
  2. Negative: 2 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.

    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.

    I am one of the biggest fans of Beyonce at first the albulm was a disappointment because I hadn't expected her to bring out such songs I am one of the biggest fans of Beyonce at first the albulm was a disappointment because I hadn't expected her to bring out such songs and such sounds but once I sat down and listen to the full albulm it grew on me and Now I actually think this is her best work ever. She shows she has no boundaries esp. in I am... she reveals a side of her that is more intriguing and makes me want to know more Expand
