    This debut switches effortlessly from r&b ballads to punchy rap tunes. With her big voice and ballsy attitude, is she Ilford's very own Pink?

    She'll no doubt weather criticism for such a broad palette, and for a debut called Who You Are, it certainly doesn't shed any definitive light on its maker's artistic identity.

    Sincere but Hokey homilies test the patience, but she brings imaginative vocal skills and real life experiences to "White Room," which displays a certain determined character. [Jun 2011, p.86]

    She's still one to watch, but the hype which preceded the release of Who You Are promised much more than what has been delivered.

    Unfortunately, the songs on Who You Are that allow Jessie J's ugly, born-that-way vocals to cut loose are in the distinct minority. In the quest to find herself, she seems to have gotten sidetracked.
  6. 50
    Weirdest of all, though, is that no matter how much Jessie J sings about being herself, we don't really ever get a sense of who, or what, that is.

    This is dead-eyed pop with aspirations of being your comfort food but turns out to be a starchy soulless slop.

Mesmo com debut #2 UK e #11 Billboard 200, nada prejudicou as vendas. Única cantora que colocou 6 singles no top 10 do chart britânico com o 1º álbum. Conseguiu dois hits mundiais, Price Tag e Domino. Dona de uma voz imensa e poderosa, tem para doar, vender e emprestar. Compositora de mãos cheias e já participou de algumas produções musicais. O talento dela é nitído e com o passar do tempo foi crescendo mais! Um dos melhores álbuns da minha vida e um presente para o pop/r&b/urban/dance/hit/conceitual. Who You Are é um álbum que Katy Perry sempre pediu a Deus e ela só recebeu o Katy Hudson, um fracasso em todos os quesitos. Expand

"Who You Are" is an excellent debut album due to the mixing of emotions in the songs and the connection between itself. Jessie's voice is incredible and some instrumentals sounds raw, like Nobody's Perfect, a thing that's great in my opinion because it makes the album sound different from any pop record released that time.

Both singers actually have nice voices, but decides to purposely fall into the same 'Pop Diva' category. Her single Money is pretty good, but there is a lot of unnecessary vocalizing in her other tracks. That's the crappy side of Pop Music. You have singers with limited range whose 'average' voice blend with its deliberately produced beats (case in point, Kylie Minogue). Yet there are singers who can actually sing who are disadvantaged and over powers songs that are 'electronically processed'. In the end, she felt like a second rate 'Lady Gaga'. Expand

This girl, who seems nice and fairly talented, should be ashamed of selling herself so cheaply to every whim and demand of pop culture and record labels. It's a sad thing to see. It would not have been a groundbreaking record but could have been a nice guilty pleasure. Now it's just watered down p*iss. Expand
