    Overhyped, totally generic fake R&B. So what she put a classical edge on some songs, and a blues edge on others (Fallin). Anyone who plays piano knows that is no great feat. Take that away, and the remakes and you have a cute girl who plays piano nothing more.

  1. It sounds like she couldn't care less if anyone's listening.
  2. A distinct and oft-times brilliant debut from an artist who clearly has a fine sense of her creative talents and has struggled to make sure they are represented in the best way

    Fusing R&B, pop, jazz, blues, throwback soul--hell, you name it--Keys delivers grandstand ballads (like the single "Fallin' "), midtempo music, diary-worthy lyrics and feminist funk as if they were all as uncomplicated as scales.
