    A Very Bland music Album!! I was expecting more from keri Hilson, considering she works with Timbaland, her lyric writing skills, sexy voice and not to mention the long delay. But it all amounted to a Album which is less then satisfactory. There are handful of decent tracks...Nothing more.

    One of the least original or inspired albums I have heard in a LONG time. Although all the songs are alright, NONE of them stand out, despite featuring big name cameos. Just a boring album. After you hear it, you will immediately forget it.

    While she has the right juices, it's just a matter of keeping them flowing, there's no doubt that there's talent here, it's just not decided whether it's the singing or songwriting. She'll need a stronger collection of songs if she wants to secure her place in the pop/R&B music scene along with such contemporaries as Rihanna, Beyonce, and Lady Gaga.

    I purchased this record recently because I liked most of the singles released from the album. Knock You Down, Return the Favor, or Energy are great tracks on their own but the album as a whole disappointed me to the extent that I found myself skipping through the songs one by one as I could not listen to them from start to finish.

    Em seu álbum de estreia, "In A Perfect World" , Keri Hilson usa e abusa de vocais sensuais, ritmos envolventes e composições banais. Em suma maioria, o disco é repleto de clichês amorosos dentre letras que variam do medíocre ao aceitável, resultando em um trabalho sem conteúdo, sem potencial, e seriamente decepcionante devido a inúmeras participações especiais totalmente descartáveis.

Um dos poucos trunfos de Keri seria o rapper Timbaland, responsável por duas grandes faixas do álbum. Infelizmente, a espera pela melhor musica do disco, "Energy", não chega a valer a pena. C Expand

  1. The slower tracks don't match up to their opposites, or even the bittersweet midtempo cut 'Alienated,' but they're not enough of a snag to prevent the album from being one of 2009's most replayable R&B releases.

    She's been kicking around the industry a few years--she cowrote Britney's 'Gimmee More'--but she still comes across as fresh on her long-delayed debut.
  3. A seductive debut CD full of slick, radio-friendly cuts.
