Now I'm not the biggest Beyonce fan, but there are a few songs of hers that I like, which is why I purchased her 3 previous albums. I must say that B-Day and I Am... Sasha Fierce disappointed me greatly. Those albums were much too immature for me considering that they both succeeded Dangerously in Love, which was a decent R&B album (not 5-6 Grammys worthy, but that's another subject altogether).

It seemed that Beyonce's only concern with her last 2 efforts was to cross over to the MTV audience and ditch the urban fanbase that supported her since the VERY beginning when she was still making music with LaTavia, Letoya, Master P, Scarface, Silkk tha Shocker, etc. And she succeeded in her endeavor, releasing pop-worthy singles while both albums contained nothing but filler music.

When I initially heard "Run the World (Girls)", my gag-reflex kicked into high gear. Here I was thinking, "Okay, Beyonce, you're 30 years old, you're married, you're a successful GROWN ASS WOMAN, why in the WORLD are you singing a song that was clearly written for Willow Smith?"

"Run the World (Girls)" is an extremely immature song and it seemed the mass population in America agreed with me. The song peaked at 29 on the Billboard charts before plummeting somewhere unknown. Even with the Sasha Fierce-reject video of her and her background dancers as sexy (skanky) Nazis didn't wow the American audience (Beyonce: we get it! You look great in a leotard! Now ditch it already! You say you're the Queen of ALL music, Queens are supposed to be able to re-invent themselves with each new album. You're recycling Sasha from 2008. Give us something new!).

I began to think that Beyonce's reign was starting to dwindle. Her fans have grown. Most of her fans since the late 90s are FULLY grown.

I love this album! She made a record for herself. It was time for Beyonce: The Person to step forward. The result is a shape-shifting piece of musical work for Beyonce. It also sets out its vision as a radical sidestep from the era-defining club and pop hits of Destiny's Child. It is filled with 3 platinum-plated ballads to mid-tempos. She toured the world and it opened her up to the possibiilities of new genres and the magnitude of the festival experience. She had started looking beyond stadiums, watching Linkin Park and Muse and Rage Against the Machine whip up their adoring fans in different ways than Pop music intuits. She then started thinking about the possibility of re-writing her place in musical history. Her musical maturation is almost complete. Her personal ethics and work methodology stretch even further. This album is going to be successful like her previous albums.

To evolve you have to change and grow and that's exactly what Beyonce latest album gives us growth and change. I inserted the cd into in my cd player and listen to every song. I love every single song on this cd. I took time to listen to the melodies, the rhythm and her lyrics. This cd is definitely a masterpiece. Some of her fans will not like this cd because she has changed up her style a little, but I LOVE this cd.

Her voice is raw, filled with emotions and she seems to be expressing herself from her soul. Some of my favorite songs on this cd are 1+1 and I Care (I love her raw emotions and voice in these songs and I already know the words to these). I Miss You is a beautiful song that I wish lasted longer. I put it on repeat a few times just to make it last longer. Countdown, Party and I Was Here are also nice songs. This cd is one you can just insert and press play..and just listen without skipping.

Great cd!! Definitely five stars!

Beyonce right now is still the biggest cross over R&B artist of her time and for quite some time now. she has been able to take different styles of music into her gumbo and get a stir with mixed results. i still think and feel she still doesn't have a timeless song in her solo catelog yet."crazy in Love" was really good, but still not a money track.

Beyonce is like the female version of Lebron James, got the Goods to be crazy Great and might one day be in a serious argument about a place on the mount rushmore of there various fields and mind you as a Miami Heat fan, I root for Lebron, however having said that, he like her doesn't have that "it" when it comes to the clutch moments to match the natural skills and that is what hurts Beyonce.

for all her soulful range and ability to have radio friendly tracks,etc.. she is always trying to create an event out of a box of cracker jacks. she is missing on just making music and having fun with it.

she wants to be heavy and deeper than she is. her voice is good and she has some moments here and there, but until she steps up the material game, she will be close,but not very good to Great as she aspires to be and for all the Hype she gets, her material often feels rushed and just kinda there.

she needs a real songwriter and producer to push her as to pushing a image. she has a couple of tight tracks and then filler which wrecks even a almost good album. she ain't close to great, but good be if tweaked into the direction of real songs to compliment her range as to oversinging and trying to build a tower out of tent.
