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!

4 is proving to be a bit of a controversial album for Beyonce in the sense that so far it doesn't seem to be selling like most people think it should, although it's been certified platinum for about a month and a half. Many reviewers find it boring with too many ballads and fillers, plus the first single, "Run the World (Girls)" was recieved with mostly lukewarm reviews. I personally loved the song the first time I heard it and thought it was very different, but loved the risks she took with the song. The next song I heard was the demo of "End of Time", which I thought was okay, but as soon as I heard "1 +1" my excitement for this album only grew stronger. The album actually leaked three weeks early, which many people thought would kill album sales when it was officially released, which may be true to some extent. The first time I heard it there were a few songs I loved, some I enjoyed, and some I didn't care for at all. However, I felt there was something special about this album and now I love it and listen to it almost daily.

"1 + 1"--possibly the best Beyonce ballad behind "Halo". It has a very simple, bluesy feel to it and the lyrics are simple yet beautiful, and her vocal delivery is very raw and passionate. The basic meaning behind the song is that even if the world ended and everything crumbled, as long as love exists, that's all that matters. A truly beautiful song. 5/5

"I Care"--not bad. One expects the song to go a certain direction in the beginning, but as soon as the chorus starts its like a different song. Her vocals really save this song, and her imitations of the guitar riffs towards the end of the song are incredible. 4/5

"I Miss You"--some people find this song very boring, but I love it.
