    Matt you are just a hater as if you can produce any thing that within close proximity to value the value of Kerri's album. It's people like you who makes it hard for black motivated people. "haters" Kerri your album is great and you are indeed a talented young woman vocally.

    This is the best album i have. I love it. Their is not one song on "In A Perfect World" I don't like. I love Keri and cant wait for more. And I'd love to write a song for her or anybody!! JR.

    Omg! How can this album not be loved? theres songs on there for everything and Keri certainly doesn't fail to bring it. I don't understand why people say she didn't do enough because i personally prefer her laid back, irresistable voice that sound less forced than most artists. Its a great first album!

    As one of the most highly anticipated R&B albums of the year, Keri has certainly delivered...well to some extent at least. Although it's been in production for well over 12 months now, the album was slightly dissapointing upon first listen. It starts off on a high, with the Intro alone sucking you into the album. The following 5 songs which include Turnin Me On and the stormer Return As one of the most highly anticipated R&B albums of the year, Keri has certainly delivered...well to some extent at least.

The following 5 songs which include Turnin Me On and the stormer Return The Favor definitly lived up to my expectations of the album. However it is a from track 7 on that the album becomes very un-original and mediocre. The tracks Make Love and Tell Him The Truth almost make you regret turning the album on at all. I don't think they should have been on the final track-listing. Overall however, the album was very good, and Keri's melodic vocals are flawless as usual! Expand

    This is my favorite contemporary R&B album. This is R&B mixed with other genres. There's R&B with Hip-Hop (Turnin' me on), there's R&B with Pop (Return the favor) and more. Hilson's voice is great (listen to Make Love), and she chosen the right featurings and placed them perfectly. The album is original, there isn't knock-off's on it.

  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.
