Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Lest you think Jamie Foxx is simply capitalizing on his Oscar-winning turn in Ray, don't forget that Unpredictable is actually a follow-up (albeit 11 years later) to his 1994 debut, Peep This. In fact, Unpredictable even sounds like a slow jams album from the '90s; despite featuring guests like Snoop, Kanye West, and The Game, Foxx isn't trying to out- club Ciara or Amerie with a series of hip-hop-flavored tracks. Instead, he relies on getting his croon on with tried-and-true R&B balladry. Unpredictable actually gets rather predictable over the course of 15 songs, too many of which begin to meld into one another. But on the best songs, like the sublimely acoustic "Heaven" and his duet with Mary J Blige ("Love Changes"), Foxx reminds you that he has been singing just as long as he's been acting; this is no Jamie-Come-Lately. --Oliver Wang

4.0 out of 5 stars A Renassiance Man December 23, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Greetings to all my fellow amazon users and ecspecially those whom share a love a music and brother foxx. I must say I'm elated and delighted to be able to do this review.

Many of us on here already know Mr.Foxx(a.k.a Eric Bishop)'s history. He was born in Dallas and raised in small Terrell Tx. He was trained on piano by his very loving Grandmother Estelle Talley and too raised by her and his grandfather. He took a liking to the playing of piano and also began singing and thus birthed the man from all of those ingredients we know as Jamie Foxx. He would later leave his loving Grandmother a short time after the death of his Grandfather to accept a scholarship he received for his piano ability. After attending and excelling in college in San Diego he dropped out after his 3rd yr to begin working on comedy and the rest is....... well you know the cliche. Enter In living colour(after being rejected by Keenan at first he later was accepted after doing the Wanda character). After the shows cancellation he went on to do his own t.v. series and star in a host of films from Any given Sunday to his most applauded performance as Ray in Ray Charles earning him an Academy Award. He dropped in July 95(I recall because I'm a july child a widely ignored album entitled peep this. Which was Jamie's first venture into music(his first love). Although the single infatuation did climb the charts the album subsequently didn't and it would be 10 yrs before Mr. Foxx would release another album..........enter UNPREDICTABLE!

I must say being a Tx person we rally behind our own people emphatically. Being that I'm 10 yrs younger than Mr. Foxx I've basically been as many have able to see him blossom from Wanda to Jamie Foxx superstar.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but not great December 24, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I'm not sure of how many albums Jamie Foxx has produced over the last few years, but clearly this is the most highly publicized of them all. He was on just about every talk-show there was this week like a promotion-machine. I heard half the album on TRL and Oprah alone. Jamie, of course, performed "Unpredictable" live on both shows, which he spices up a little with a different bridge... unfortunately that isn't the one on the album.

Nevertheless, the album's title track "Unpredictable" is a good choice for the first single. It's one of the best songs on this album, with a sample-laced beat that is sure to get you to at least snap your fingers. The lyrics aren't all that great, but Jamie makes up for it with his vocals, and the arrangement here is also pretty well done.

However, each time I listen to "Unpredictable", I wish that the song was longer. First, because it's a fun song. Secondly, because it'll at least stall until the album's second track "Warm Bed" comes on which is anything but unpredictable (Sorry for the cliche). "Warm Bed", along with many other tracks on Foxx's album sound very familiar, which is disappointing because you expect so much after listening to "Unpredictable".

As I listened, while reading the liner notes, I began to wonder how it takes three or four people to pen mediocre songs like "Warm Bed" and "Three Letter Word", and then have Jamie, on his own, produce a jewel like "Heaven".

Maybe that is the problem here. Foxx's album seems so overproduced that it comes out very commonplace, and at times boring. Even the album's guests can't save some of these songs, "With You" featuring Snoop Dogg is one these. What is Snoop even doing in this song? It's evident again as you listen to Timberland-produced "Can I Take You Home".

5.0 out of 5 stars Jamie Foxx truely is "Unpredictable" August 10, 2006
Format:Audio CD
What can I say, Jamie is and always will be talented. I never have let the fact that Jamie, being a great actor/comedian forshadow that he can sing. A lot of people don't take his music seriously because he's an actor and/or comedian....Nah, that sounds more like an excuse to me.

Anyhow, "Unpredictable" is a very ballad heavy album, and that's not a bad thing either. This album has a lot of great songs. Unpredictable is definatly a must buy album!

My favorite tracks in order:

Track 10: VIP 10/10 Great beat, great lyrics/vocals...I just love songs with violins in them.

Track 7: Extravaganza 9/10 Catchy song, great lyrics/vocals with a nice rap peice by Mr. West!

Track 1: Unpredictable 9/10 Great first single. Love this song and Ludacriss rap verse adds.

Track 2: Warm Bed 9/10 Another great song, nice dance feel to it. Party jam.

Track 11: Do What It Do 9/10 Great slow jam, love this beat. great vibe and lyrics to match.

3.0 out of 5 stars Unpredictable? Hardly. January 15, 2006
Format:Audio CD
I'd like to say from the start that I've got nothing but love for brother Jamie. I've followed his career from the early days of "In Living Color" and "Booty Call" and genuinely admire the way he seems to have moved seamlessly from stand up comedian, to comedic actor, to serious actor (and Oscar winning glory). He's obviously a multi-talented dude and he obviously works very hard. Props to him.

I had no idea he had released an album prior to this one and was swayed into buying this (and the huge mistake of buying it without listening to the sample clips) by his recent work on the movie "Ray", his appearance on the Ray Charles TV tribute show and his recent contributions to songs by Ludacris and Kanye West. I was also suckered by the rumours I heard that he was taking it back to the 'old school days' and then, of course, there is the title of this CD.

Unpredictable? I don't think so. For me this is as predictable as tomorrow's sunrise. The theme is predictable, the choice of collaborations, is predictable, the inner sleeve notes that double as a poster fold-out are predictable and I could go on and on. The CD is basically full of the one track minded banality that men half Jamie Foxx's age (and with much less than half his talent) are putting out there.

That said, these guys are all selling multi-platinum, so what do I know?

Lyrically there is absolutely nothing here for me and musically, we're doing only slightly better. The title song is so so but Ludacris (whose stuff I'm crazy about) lights it up with a few verses. Mary J. Blige does her thing as only she knows how on "Love Changes". "Extravaganza" is equally interesting although I could've done without the Kanye West verses.
