  • Summary: Young Jeezy and the Three 6 Mafia guest on the R&B singer's third album.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 3 out of 12
  2. Negative: 1 out of 12
  1. It's almost the perfect R&B album; cool, sexy, inventive and suitably stylish throughout. All that's missing is a couple of killer singles.
  2. All in all, Milian’s got a good thing going, despite a few lyrical hiccups, a couple of lackluster hooks, and some obvious influences.
  3. Unfortunately, she has also followed Ms. Knowles' lead in recording overly earnest, confessional ballads.
  4. So Amazin' may not be the huge leap in artistic achievement she may have hoped for, but it is a step in the right direction.
  5. Milian's limp attempt at a sassy, streets-friendly R&B sound simply lacks bite and believability. [19 May 2006, p.76]
  6. Though Milian often comes off as a third-rate Beyoncé, her feathery soprano captivates when her lyrics do not.
  7. The only personality displayed on So Amazin' is that of her contemporaries and predecessors.

    Very Good album. I do agree there needs to be more ballads and she seems to have had obvious influences. Overall, I think she did a good job. Very Good album.

    Ignore those reviews. It's one Hot album! I'd get it if I were you. You won't be disappointed. Every song is worth it. Ignore those reviews. It's one Hot album! I'd get it if I were you. You won't be disappointed. Every song is worth it. Especially "Hot Boy"! Expand

    This album should be titled So Copyright, because Christina has simply taken some of her favourite songs from other artists and asked Cool This album should be titled So Copyright, because Christina has simply taken some of her favourite songs from other artists and asked Cool and Dre to recreate them to match her thin and airy voice. She sounds like Ashanti in Twisted. I bought this album with high expectations and only got an album that screams I WANT TO BE BEYONCE'. Expand
