    Jessie J’s latest pop-tacular, slightly uneven effort, Alive, sheds the Katy Perry rainbow for a much rougher, more interesting shade of Pink--both the artist and the color.

    For most of the album, however, Jessie J shows how wide her range is.

    It's by no means a bad record, although the ballads are best avoided.

    As it stands, Alive is too easy to ignore.

    Probably one of the best albums of 2013. "Alive" is an excellent album, not connected like "Who You Are", but still excellent! Jessie J'sProbably one of the best albums of 2013. "Alive" is an excellent album, not connected like "Who You Are", but still excellent! Jessie J's voice shows that she is an incredible singer. The songs I love from this album are Breathe, Alive, Magnetic, Excuse My Rude and mainly Sexy Lady, the biggest hit of the album in my opinion. It should be a single. It's My Party isn't that bad, but I think it crashes the album connection and meaning, it appears to be some randomly release track.
    The bad things about the album are that the singles choices were made wrong and the album promotion is horrible (but expecting from Island this is what we get...). I hope after the US version release of "Alive" Jessie get more recognition with this excellent work.
