  1. Sexy, credible, committed, In Love And War works damn hard for the money, and stands as another thoroughly modern record from a lady embodying strangely old-skool virtues.
  2. Gifted with a sweetly aching voice, she also has a way with slowies that make them less sick-making than most R&B ballads.
  3. Amerie returns with In Love & War, an album that is much more creative than its title indicates while also playing out a bit like Because I Love It redux.
  4. With In Love & War, Amerie has adopted to trying times with spunk and style, grace and flair. And, yes, swag.
  5. In Love & War matches the brash energy of her biggest hit — though it's not for lack of trying, with many of these tunes shamelessly mimicking '1 Thibg.'
  6. In terms of personality and originality, Amerie's latest is on par with Solange's "Sol-Angel and the Hadley St. Dreams." As with that slept-on record, War is deserving of greater commercial impact than it is likely to earn.
  7. On Amerie's fourth album, she excels at getting in your face without overdosing on divatude — not much excessive Beyoncé-size vocalizing here.

    Ein sehr gutes Album, jedes einzelene Lied ist sehr gut, schade das sich das album nicht gut verkauft hat, ich mag den mix aus RnB, Funk, Soul und hip-hop, die lieder wurden auch gut produziert Expand

    My favourite of Amerie's four albums, as she only got better with time! A great selection of R&B tracks but there seems to be less R&B as she is working more with other genres and mixing them around. The two main singles are highlights and there is only one slightly dull song on here. A great album, and one of my personal faves! Expand
