#6 Already Gone is terrific.. These two songs alone are worth the CD ...
The funny thing is, that one sounds like it would have been right at home on "My December": a little dark, a little hard. And from this point on, each track was a pleasant surprise to me on the first listen. Some resemble those on "My December", such as "If I Can't Have You", which also leans toward early 80's New Wave. When I reviewed "My December", I mentioned Pat Benatar. Pat's spirit is invoked again on "WhyYaWannaBringMeDown", in its tone, aggressive vocal and guitar work. But other tracks are softer while still showing growth and creativity. "Ready" has a musical intro so light and breezy that I almost expect Simon & Garfunkel to start singing, "Slow down, you're movin' too fast/You got to make the morning last...Feelin' groovy." "Already Gone" is one of those rare pop confections that is nearly perfect: confessional lyrics, very catchy melody, emotional vocal delivery. I hear this song every day on the radio and never, never get tired of it. "I Want You" is a clever, playful song which has a lot of fun with the 3 words in the title, and it features the interesting device of ending a line of the song with a word that is actually the first word of the next line. This is also done in "Already Gone". It can be disconcerting at first, but once you get used to it, you see that it is just part of the variation from the norm that Kelly offers. As on "My December", Kelly closes the album with a song that has serious lyrics and intimate vocal. "If No One Will Listen" is a ballad about being yourself and following your dream, with traditional piano and strings.
The finished product is an album that combines bright, imaginative elements with the pop expertise we have already come to expect from Kelly's albums.
The deluxe version is the best one to get because the two bonus songs are as good as the rest of the album and really fit in well. Tip of My Tongue sounds like another song Beyonce would steal the idea of if she could. There is also a bonus track only available on the Japanese version as others mentioned. Another really good one with a rock sound. It's too bad that these weren't included, because once you've heard them, they make the standard version seem like it's missing something.
I like Kelly's music and have all of her albums, but she seems to get better with each release. Her debut is the weakest, it has a few good songs on it, but there are a lot of boring R&B songs that weigh it down. She has continued to ditch that and go for a more pop/rock sound which was sorely missing in music for many years. This works much better than those R&B songs. This album explores a variety of sounds-rock, pop, soul, 60s girl group pop, punk, ballads, dance. It's a nice mix of styles. Music has changed quite a bit in the past few years from having an urban sound that was popular a decade ago, and I say it's about time.
I didn't listen to the album for a while because I played it so much, then came back to it and found I still enjoyed it. It is very consistent and strong. No filler really at all.
