  • Summary: The follow-up to her 2005 debut album, "The Way It Is."

  1. Positive: 6 out of 11

  1. Just Like You shows and proves unquestionably that Cole’s capable of some seriously rich, powerful art.
  2. Keyshia Cole proves for a second time--for sure and way beyond the shadow of a doubt--that she's headed for Mary J. Blige-style hugeness.
  3. This stands as a very good album by Keyshia Cole, also the point where Cole's voice grows from an occasionally powerful emotive device into a versatile instrument.
  4. The new songs can’t help but sound rather mild, and maybe even constricting.... Still, this is a likable and well-sung album.

    Striken, sorrowful balladry is the meat of this fine album. [Feb 2008, p.102]
  6. A work of engaging, pop-wise R&B.
  7. Keyshia Cole's street edge sets her apart from her polished R&B peers, but the Oakland, Calif., songstress could have used a good editor on her second album, which is bogged down by too many ballads and overly lush production.

    I loved the emotion this cd makes me feel. Listening to "Get my Heart Back" makes me think of all the times when I wanted to erase the past. She just nailed the after the love is gone feelings. Expand

    I love this album it is the best. Her style and voice is amazing. I like her music because she relates to every female. Especially I remember; she sings about all the heartache she went through and how it hurt her so much. She has stepped up from the first album. That is what I like about her music. Every song is better than the last song and album. Expand
