  1. There's no sense of storytelling or momentum to her performances: she starts the song in one place and stays there riding in circles until the end.

    Underpowered covers... confirm the impression of a high-octane artist tired out and running on empty. [Dec 2005, p.105]
  3. Just another bloated arena show.
  4. It's great if you like her, not so great if you don't, and right down the middle for everyone else.
  5. An abbreviated "You Don't Know My Name," truly a producer's creation, falls flat here, and she treats covers of Gladys Knight's "If I Was Your Woman" and "Every Little Bit Hurts" like vocal auditions and not the blank canvases of an interpretive artist.
  6. Uncut

    Keys hasn't the charisma to indulge in the inter-song banter here, which breaks up any soulful flow that might develop despite her sharp, hectoring vocals. [Jan 2006, p.108]

    This is an amazing album. Alicia has the most beautiful voice I've ever heard. She shows strengh and love, nothing else is needed.
