Good beat and great vocals.
Josh
I love to hear Fantasia's voice, she can really sing and it's the kind of music you put in when you want a sweet pep me up sound.

Fantasia has referred to the material on this album as "urban rock."

American Idol is good for something... putting singers that deserve it into the limelight. Fantasia is one of those deserving singers. Her voice, as unconvntional as it seems, is a perfect match for the music produced on this album.

Right from the get go, with "Hood Boy" her voice amasses a comanding presense as she pulls you into her sassy little world. Of course, the song is an interesting piece, but the real meat of this production is the mere fact that the majority of the album features songs that are not of the "throw away" nature. Maybe the sounds all seem similar to something else heard before... but when she throws in her amazing voice, the song suddenly morphs into something all hers.

"When I See You" is a pretty mid-tempo song with poetic lyrics and a favorite amoung reviewers seems to be "I Nominate U" which is justified because the song is pretty as well as racy. The positive message of "I Feel Beautiful" cannot be ignored and it is nice to listen to a woman sing about stuff such as this. "Two Weeks Notice" is a tongue in cheek break up song and effectively conveyed as she has the decency (not a requirement, I might add) to let her man know that she is leaving his unapreciative butt behind. I particularly like the "Bore Me" as she gets playful over hip hop friendly beats.

In my opinion, this album is much better than her debut and shows her as the true talented woman that she is. This effort only cements the fact that she won American Idol, proving that she deserves that victory without a doubt, but doesn't need the title or the show to remind people that she is a force to be reconned with. This is hot stuff... for sure.

I am very pleased with Fantasia's sophmore effort. In my opinion there seems to be more depth and personality on it then her debut CD. Her voice sounds great and there is the perfect blend of club ready tracks along with some smooth R&B slow jams as well. I liked it from the first listen and just cannot stop listening to it.

Here is a track by track breakdown:

1. "Hood Boy" - This is the first single and it features Outkast's Big Boi. A VERY catchy and infectious song. Makes you want to tap your feet and bob your head. Her voice is great in this song. 5/5

2. "When I See U" - A great midtempo song with an excellent melody to it. Love it! 5/5

3. "I Nominate U" - A very nice "love" slow jam. Fantasia sounds great on this track. A good song for that special someone. A good song with a lot of feeling and soul in it. 5/5

4. "Baby Makin' Hips" - A good beat that makes you want to dance but, as you can see by the title the lyrics are not that great. "She's got them baby makin' hips" Hmmmmmmmm...ok. lol 3/5

5. "Not The Way That I Do" - LOVE IT!!! An excellent song! THis is a club banger through and through. Makes you want to hit the nearest dance floor...QUICK!! The chours is so catchy and infectious you will be singing along in no time. 5/5

6. "Only One U" - A good slow jam. Really like the lyrics. Great melody. 5/5

7. "I Feel Beautiful" - Another great slow jam. A really good message. The lyrics standout the most here. A more lyrically tame song. 4/5

8. "I'm Not That Type" - A good bumper!!!! Another great club banger! Such great beats! VERY catchy!! 5/5

9. "Uneligible" - Not a huge fan of this song. I cannot pin point exactly what it is. Maybe it's the horns in it, I am not sure.

This is a great album from Fantasia. I think the only issue with it is that it wasn't marketed in the right way. I love some of ther tracks that have that old school edge to it, but then Fantasia has an old school edge to her persona anyway. This girl was MEANT to hsve a microphone in her hand. Check out her performances on YouTube and I swear you will be BLOWN away.

I fell in love with the possibility of FANTASIA, the artist during her American Idol days and have not been disappointed thus far. Her debut album was a very good introduction but her live performances have been electrifying - Fantasia is an old school performer who puts her whole soul into every performance, grabs the audience by the heart and makes every person FEEL something (a la the great Patti LaBelle)!

It sucks that people aren't willing to accept her music for what it is - unfortunately Fantasia (who lets not forget is only 22 years old) has to walk a fine line between putting out music that American Idol fans will like but also trying to establish herself as a force in the r&b/pop field and make music that'll appeal to a broad audience.

In today's music environment, there are very few true singers with the courage to put music out there that is not the standard cookie-cutter formula for a hit (ie singers who are basically "hook girls" on their own singles while rappers run the show).
