Product Description

Amazon.com

The perfect timing of Beyonce Knowles’ career moves continues with the release of her debut solo album. Dangerously in Love’s best music is wildly up-to-date, craftily designed for both maximum street acceptance and positioning as some of the most cutting-edge stuff on current radio. The brash first single, "Crazy in Love," melds Jay-Z with an unstoppable Chi-Lites horn sample, shape-shifting into something brand new. Collaborations with Outkast’s Big Boi and Sean Paul also prick up the ears, while changes of pace like "Be with You" and "Speechless" achieve their aim with credibility. The disc becomes far too ballad heavy in its second half, but the key stuff is the noise she brings. --Rickey Wright

Beyonce shines through as a woman without her group around her, and surprise ... it's a retro-fitted hip hop affair with a lot of sensual laid back grooves. The first single "CRAZY IN LOVE" is the most uptempo sampling a 70s groove from "Are you my Woman". That is followed by "NAUGHTY GIRL" which Beyonce uses a hook from "Love to Love You Baby" by Donna Summer. We all knew she has a reverence for the 70s, but most surprising are the Middle Eastern influences found in both NAUGHTY GIRL and BABY BOY. Belly dancers rejoice! The second half of the album slows down, but never to a ballad speed. Low funky beats keep the entire album afloat, and rap stars like Jay Z, Missy Elliot, Sean Paul, and Sleepy Brown color almost every other song. It's ghetto fabulous from the cover photo (diamonds and jeans) to the spoken "BEYONCE INTERLUDE" where she coos into the mic about love. Will she tromp Kelly Roland's solo album numbers in sales? Maybe. But each member of Destiny's Child has proven they can stand on their own. And have their own identity musically. Beyonce has emerged as the sexy 70s cool hip hop girlfriend. Suddenly you realize Foxy Cleopatra would love this CD!

This album is really good! Been a true fan of Beyonce and Destiny's Child since the beginning. Her album shows that sista girl has grown up. LOL Here's my comments and ratings for each song.
- Crazy in Love (10/10) great song for her debut
- Naughty Girl (9/10) cool
- Baby Boy (10/10) nice song with Sean Paul
- Hip Hop Star (7/10) it's ok
- Be with you (9/10) nice slow jam
- Me, Myself and I (9/10)
- Yes (10/10) pretty nice beat
- Signs (10/10) Missy knows how to do it!
- Speechless (6/10) really slow and drawn out, cool though
- That's How You Like It (8/10) its ok,
- The Closer I get to you (9/10) great collaboration with the legendary Luther Vandross
- Dangerously in Love 2 (8/10) should have left the original version from last DC album, love the song though.
- Gift From Virgo (8/10) cool ending
- Daddy - Bonus Track (9/10) nice tribute to her dad.
Overall it's a good album. Even if you're a Beyonce hater, just accept that she's a great writer and producer. She's really good. Great work!! Hope it helps

How appropriate it is for Knowles to incorporate Donna Summer's "Love to Love You, Baby" on "Naughty Girl". The ubiquitous Miss Knowles is all over the map like Summer was during HER 70's heyday. Perhaps, Summer's is the pattern for which the younger is following. Not a bad icon to emulate.
With that said, it must be noted that "Dangerously in Love" is not very "perilous". It features routine pop/urban fluff with too many guest stars that overshadow Knowles's attempts at independence as a solo artist. Like so many of her contemporaries, the album's length weighs it down. Ten songs, at most, would have elevated the album a notch or two.

The success of this album is, no doubt, driven by the onslaught of the "Crazy in Love" video. The song, by itself, is lyrically unintelligible but it does boast a killer dance beat.
If Knowles really wants to impress, she needs to do a few more like the tasty "Speechless", the strongest track on the album, or a duet on the caliber of her pairing with superstar Luther Vandross ("The Closer I Get to You").
Oh, yeah, food for thought: Summer has an Oscar on her mantle, by the way.

I know there are a lot of major Beyonce fans out there and the last thing I would want to do is anger all of you, but I must be honest in saying that this album and Beyonce's overall presentation echoes glorified prostitution. Her songs on this album have ABSOLUTELY no substance, just about having sex (which is something that children definitely DO NOT need to hear). You might think it's just a dance album, but just listen carefully to the lyrics of her songs (ex: Crazy In Love, Naughty Girl). The only songs that have true substance and meaning were the ones she chose to remake. Don't get me wrong, I am no hater. But when I see a beautiful, somewhat talented young women just shaking and dancing in next to nothing, it is such a waste. Just think for a moment, hypothetically, if Beyonce reached 50 years old and gained 100+ pounds, are you really going to want to see her perform "Crazy in Love." It will lose all its momentum.

Beyonce can make music without exposing herself. She needs to go with a more elegant and classy approach, instead of sheer raunchiness. With more vocal training and a better song selection, Beyonce might just stand right up there with Billie Holliday and Aretha Franklin as a woman known for her voice instead of slut appeal.

Wow! if there is any way that I can describe this album to you is, the first 5 tracks are good!, the rest it's just boring!, and what about the title song! the same track from her Survivor album? without the background vocals? not a smart move!. Crazy In LOve, Baby Boy are the best tracks!, Naughty Girl it's ok!, the rest of the album is sooooooo booooooooring......but the leading single(Crazy...) makes its worth it to buy it. "Hip Hop Star" it's nice, "Be With You" it's the last song that you can handle!, "Me Myself and I", yuk!, "Yes" whassup with this?, "Signs", I'm sure Missy hates her, she produce the worst song ever, The rest it's not worth it mention it, the song are just boooooooring.

Mr. David Vasquez is correct. Although I think music died once 2000 hit. It seems mediocre talent or lack of, has taken over the airwaves.

I hate Beyonce with a passion!
I don't hate her, that's too strong of a word. I'm just not a fan and find her to be waaaay overrated.
