  • Summary: The third solo album for the ex-Destiny's Child singer features songs attributed to her alter ego Sasha Fierce.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 10 out of 24
  2. Negative: 2 out of 24
  1. I Am...Sasha Fierce does offer two compelling sides of the singer.
  2. Though some of the slow songs have thoroughly memorable tunes, the lyrics are full of bland self-affirmation and saggy lines....But the "Sasha" disc boasts Beyonce's most adventurous music yet.
  3. 70
    She's not there yet, but the effort is fascinating, and hopefully she will keep on this path.
  4. Beyonce still proves that she's an all-around good performer even though her attempt to branch out into an alter ego fails a little.
  5. While this LP is more painstaking than B'Day, the extra effort dulls any emotional wallop; "B'Day," in all its hectic glory, offered a much more vivid peek into the elusive mind of Beyoncé than Sasha Fierce, which often reads more like projection than reality.
  6. But OutKast's "Speakerboxxx/The Love Below" aside, it's debatable whether there has been call for a double album since "Sign O' the Times" in 1987, and this is clearly another case for the prosecution.
  7. I am...amused. But it's sort of like the horrific fascination of seeing a train wreck.

    Amazing album. The "I Am" side is perfect, there is no one with voice like the one she has.
    Halo is one of the most beautiful songs that I ever heard.

People will have to listen to the I Am side to appreciate the great songs that are on that side because it's a little different sound for Beyonce. If I Were a Boy is already a hit. But the other songs that will be guaranteed hits for Beyonce are Halo, Smash Into You and Broken Hearted Girl. I also really like Disappear and That's Why You're Beautiful. Overall, the CD is great and one of the best the year. Only Beyonce is talented, creative and risk taking enough to do a CD like this. I totally believe that she'll be up for Album of the Year at the Grammy's this year. And deservedly so. Expand

Problem with this album is I don't feel Beyonce in more of the songs in this album but who cares!
    At this album are truly iconic songs like "If I were a boy", "Diva", "Halo", "Sweet Dreams". "Single Ladies", "Why Don't You Love Me". Thanks for them.

She shows she has no boundaries esp. in I am... she reveals a side of her that is more intriguing and makes me want to know more Expand

Although it has some really good moments (If I Were A Boy, Halo, BHG, Hello, Ego, Radio, Sweet Dreams, Single Ladies), it really has some epically fails (Video Phone, Diva, Why Don't You Love Me). As a whole, an average album and the worst I've listened to from her ... so far. Expand
