My favorites are "Sweet Dreams", "Ego," "Single Ladies" and "Diva".I think I like Sasha Fierce better.
Amazon Customer
I know some people say you have to let the album "grow on you" but I have played it like 3 times straight and I just can't get into it.

Part two is very annoying, the first part with horrible songs that sound like every other rap song on the radio.

Before I start, I'm just gonna say I'm not an amazing reviewer, but I am going to give an honest review.

I am definately not the biggest Beyonce fan by far, as I usually like to stray away from mainstream music as often as I can, being such over processed crap as most of it is. But this is Beyonce we're talking about, she has amazing talent, and an amazing vocal range. Which is why I'm so appalled that she had the audacity to release such an album. It's almost like she's saying, "I'm Beyonce, I'm amazing, and people will jump on anything I create, so why even make an attempt."
I'm one of the idiots who purchased the deluxe album, and after unwrapping it at home and actually checking out the track listing and such, all of these songs could have DEFINATELY fit onto one album. There was nothing deluxe about it.
After listening to the first disc, I almost felt I had to check my stereo to make sure I didn't have the same song on repeat over and over. The entire first disc is nothing but power ballads, that lack just that, power. There was no emotion, they all sounded exactly the same: bland, dull, and over-polished. It made me feel like she went into the studio and just recorded each track to the same intrumental, back to back, and called it a night.

The second disc I'm assuming was supposed to be the disc with club anthems, party songs and such. It had the typical "independent" ladies song, and the typical "boast like a man" song. I forced myself through the whole thing just to say I gave it a shot. Basically the only song worth anything on this entire collection is the song "Single Ladies", which I'm still not bananas about.
Beyonce, you're incredible, but this album was a slap in the face to all of your fans and anyone who even mildly liked you.

Who is Sasha Fierce? More importantly, who is Beyonce Knowles-Carter? Music listeners worldwide are more interested in the latter; more curious about divulging into the mind and psyche of Beyonce, the newly married, former lead singer of super girl group Destiny's Child.

But with her third solo album, widely publicized as her most personal project to date, does Beyonce really give insight into what life is like behind the celebrity trappings?

I Am...Sasha Fierce is exactly what was forecasted: a disjointed package of two sounds and ambiences. In what is described as an album illustrating two sides of the vocal powerhouse diva's persona: Beyonce', the artists vulnerable, emotional (sincere) side, and alter ego Sasha Fierce, the domineering, attention capturing diva; the two disc set straddles current music trends of pop on the former, and edgy, street-wise R&B/dance on the latter.

First disc, entitled, I Am, is an adventure in pop sounds and phrasings for the most part. In the grand scheme of this conceptual project, I Am is more rewarding and convincing.

Listening to the twenty-seven-year-old sing about her lover's angelic qualities on "Halo" and pondering her actions as the opposite sex on "If I Were A Boy" is actually a bit refreshing. An abundance of acoustic elements (piano, guitar) and soaring restrained vocals reveal a distinctively new approach to music for the Houston native, famous for cramming more syllables and words into a single breath than her other female counterparts.

Even here, however, the attempts to incite a certain intimacy are futile. Most notably is "Ave Maria", which may have been a decent song without the interpolation of the operatic standard into what is an overly ambitious, under-executed filler track.

Now many may call me a hater because I am so negative about this cd, but hey...I am stating the truth. Lets state the facts before anything....Beyonce is a BEAUTIFUL female with such a wonderful voice, but she has become so famous that she can make a BOGUS cd like this one, and everyone will like it. I was a HUGE Destiny's Child fan back in the day; the image of 4 beautiful girls with nice voices appealed to me! Every since Beyonce has decided to go solo, I find myself becoming more disappointed with her music! "Dangerously in Love" was actually not a bad album, however, her choice in what she calls music has went downhill from there. In my personal opinion, I feel as if Beyonce has become arrogant, self-absorbed, and down right cocky...and her lyrics reflect that! I actually had "I Am..Sasha Fierce" a month before it was released and I never really listened to it because of how "stuck on herself" Beyonce has become, and secondly, I was just down right tired of seeing/hearing her EVERYWHERE! When I finally got around to listening to the album, I have to admit, it took me all of 5 minutes to realize I hated it! Beyonce has a nice voice that can really be useful for the r&b genre, but the collection of songs on this album is MESS! Dont get me wrong, "Single Ladies" grew on me and I found myself doing the dance every time I heard the song, but that was the only song that really appealed to me. Songs that made me cringe included "Video Phone, Diva, Radio, Sweet Dreams, and Ego." Other songs are just so BORING you cant help but skip them! In my opinion, Beyonce has survived in the music business because of her beauty, sass, independence, and singing abilities, however, her music is not of QUALITY!Read more ›
