De Novo Adagio (intro) - A short and simple intro that showcases the classically trained skills that some may have forgotten Ms. Keys possessed. Would have been lovely if this were longer with lyrics attached. I wonder what that would have sounded like.

Brand New Me - The intro goes straight into this song, which actually brings the lyrics that I hoped to hear mentioned above. I think this song is a personal note to all of her critiques out there that have had issues with the way her personal life has resulted to the past few years. She talks about her growth, and how no one should be mad or feel bad for the changes that have occurred with her. This song is about accepting oneself, and not worrying about the opinions of others. It's a really good song with a poignant message. However, there were essences of straining in some areas of the song.

When It's All Over - Right away reminded me of an old school, late 60s/early 70s kind of feel. I really appreciate the different directions that are shown throughout this album. This song is about accepting the fact that you loved someone, regardless of the amount of time you had with that individual. It's about living the love in the moment, and not worrying about what may happen tomorrow. I don't think it has a foreboding vibe or nature to it, but more-so growing old with someone and enjoying the time you have with them, for life is impossible to foretell. And the inclusion of her son at the end was sweet.

Listen to Your Heart - Smooth mellow song that would definitely fit on the adult r&b contemporary stations. I think this would definitely fit into that vein. The title of the song essentially reads the entirety of the song. It's about listening to your heart and going after what it tells you.

While Alicia Keys has been around for over 10 years, Girl on Fire is the first of her albums that I have bought or listened to. So, I guess I've been missing the boat if this is representative of her previous work - which I intend to check out soon, btw. She has a great combination of vocal, piano, and songwriting talent. I do find it curious that "Girl On Fire" is the first single; however, I think it is far from the strongest track on the album. I like everything but "Fire We Make" (sorry, I didn't care for Maxwell's vocals) better than "Girl On Fire". My favorites are "That's When I Knew", "Brand New Me", and "When It's All Over" the last of which ends with a playful dialog toddler son. I thought this gave her already personal lyrics and even more personal touch. All three of those songs have vocals that are very expressive and earnest, and I connected with them the most. The rest of the songs are also good (with the exceptions noted above). I would recommend this album to anyone who likes strong vocals and piano with R&B backing.

Something's gone awry when the singles are the weakest tracks on the album. As weak as the singles are lyrically ("looks like a girl, but she's a flame" from the title track), they fit well in the musical landscape that Keys has painted. Easily the most consistent and cohesive set of songs we've heard from Keys, "Girl on Fire" moves effortlessly from piano ballads ("Brand New Me") to Jamie XX ("When It's All Over"), to synth-heavy groove "Listen to Your Heart". Some have lamented Keys' refusal to truly open up in the past, and they will likely find plenty wrong with another album where she keeps the listeners at arms length, mostly. But look harder at the thematic elements of a few tracks and you'll see that she's subtly addressing the things that have been said about her. For example, "101" is a thinly veiled dig at the naysayers regarding her relationship with the notoriously unfaithful Swizz Beatz. Not to mention that it sounds fantastic. "Not Even The King", while certainly not currently personal for Keys, finds her at her most intimate on a recording, stopping to sit down, breathe, and push the pedal down before beginning the future nominee for Song of The Year at the Grammy Awards.

I'm a longtime Alicia Keys fan, disappointed with the last album of mostly filler music, and am really thrilled to see Keys back at the top of her game and turning out an album even better than "As I Am". Great music!

I don't know what is is about Alicia's vocals lately that have been not rubbing me the right way, but I've gotta say that I'm not loving or even liking this new album. I'm really disappointed because I bought three hard copies, one for me and the other two as gifts for my sisters. Not one of us has really gotten into this cd. I will say that my baby sister adores Listen to Your Heart and plays it non-stop. I can't really say that there's even one song that I'm crazy about; they just all seem ok.

I like AK and was looking to buy this CD. My 4 yr old daughter love the song Girl on Fire atleast the version we hear on the radio. I wanted to download the song on her Innotab2 I got her for Christmas. Well I listened to the songs before I purchased the CD and I am glad I did. Girl on Fire on the CD is not the same version we hear on the radio. The version on the CD has rap on it and I did not like it, I was so disappointed. Mainly because that is not what I want to put on my 4 yr old's Innotab2 & she really likes the radio version. It would have been nice if they had both on the CD. I was not crazy about the other songs on the CD, but I would have bought it anyway for my daughter for the radio version of Girl on Fire. Needless to say I will not be buying this CD.
Disappointed mom & 4 yr old fan.
