Editorial Reviews

Ciara is taking it back to basics with the upcoming release BASIC INSTINCT. Multi platinum recording artist Ciara is coming with her 4th album after her 2009 release of FANTASY RIDE. Ciara will bring us back to her hometown of Atlanta to remind us of why we love the original A-town homegirl!

Ciara s debut album Goodies sold 3.5 million albums world wide and follow up album The Evolution 1.8 million worldwide. Ciara has sold over 5 million albums worldwide in her career thus far!

BASIC INSTINCT is executive producted by Ciara, Dream and Tricky (Rihanna s Umbrella ). BASIC INSTINCT is filled with infectious rhythms,girl anthems,club bangers, and sexy baselines made for riding in your jeep! With the lead single and insanely hot video for Ride featuring Ludacris, Ciara has reclaimed her spot as one of the sexiest and talented performers in music today.

I happen to like Ciara, but to be completely honest, I am not too fond of this "too sexy" Ciara. When she first arrived on the scene, she was not only a fresh, beautiful face, who could dance her BUTT off, but she also had fresh material to sing about. The thing I loved and respected about Ciara was she was absolutely stunning, she wore the baddest shoes I have ever seen (and still does :) ), she carried herself like a lady, yet sexy at the same time, and she knew how to make you get up and dance without subjecting her listeners to sexually suggestive lyrics. Now-a-days, Ciara has really "settled" for stripper-influenced choreography , but also, her lyrics allow you to make the assumption that she is quite a promiscuous female. I don't know....I understand Ciara is grown, but her style has changed...for the worst (and that is just MY OPINION--please do not attack me for my personal opinion because this is my review). Don't get me wrong, there are a few songs on the album that are absolute BANGERS: I.e. "Gimmie Dat, Girls Get Your Money, Wants For Dinner, and I Run It," but I guess I just expected a little more from her. Judging by the video/song "Basic Instinct (You Got Me)," I just knew Ciara was going back to her roots and make more hits with Missy Elliot, Jazze Pha, Lil John, etc. with songs such as "1, 2, Step, Lookin At You, That's Right, Like A Boy, Promise, Get Up, C.R.U.S.H., etc (I'm sure you get the point), but she didn't do that with this album. Don't get me wrong....Ciara has made a major improvement from her previous disappointing album that is entitled "Fantasy Ride," but I still expected more from Ciara! I love her R&B/Crunk music and I truly feel as though she is loosing her roots. I'm not saying the album is complete trash, but she could have done better.Read more ›

Ciara Princess Harris is somewhat underrated as an artist, as she is capable of combining many elements into her music and videos. Her voice can be both sassy and sweet, she is a great dancer, and she has an element of sex appeal.

On "Basic Instinct," she is able to combine those elements effectively enough to produce a very entertaining, hook-filled hip hop/pop crossover album. On her first two albums (2004's "Goodies" and 2006's "The Evolution") the strongest moments were without question the singles, as "My Goodies," "1 2 Step," and "Like A Boy" were killer hits and burned up the charts. On her 2009 album "Fantasy Ride" she mixed in a few tender ballads, a duet with Justin Timberlake, and a few dancefloor anthems ("Work" is one of her best ever songs), but only one single managed the top 10.

Just over a year later, "Basic Instinct" has appeared, after several delays. The first two singles ("Ride" and "Gimme Dat") have not been huge chart hits, which is disappointing, because they are quite good (but not great) tracks. The best moments come during the middle of the album, when she teams up with Tricky Stewart for a couple of mainstream hip-pop gems ("Heavy Rotation" and "Yeah I Know'). Later in the album, there is a nice song featuring Usher, called "Turn It Up." As typically is the case with Usher, the song hits the mark.

In conclusion, Ciara has enough excellent songs here to make "Basic Instinct" a fine record, although not a great one. But in an era in which there are plenty of female singers all over the top of the charts who are turning out auto-tuned cheese, it is a shame that Ciara is not getting more airplay, because the quality of the best songs on this album are right up there with what Beyonce and Rihanna have done the past several years.

Ciara's Basic Instinct is an oaky album. I say its "okay" based on her sound, and her style on this album. As an artist she has grown, and its important for artists not to be "complacent" in their music. I am not 100% certain if I would recommend this album, mainly because everyone's taste in music varies. I guess if you can sample it, Or if you really want to purchase it without breaking your wallet try to get it online at a really inexpensive price! I hope this review serves you well.

This is a great CD release by the talented & sexy singer Ciara, tittled, 'Basic Instinct'. This great CD (with 10 tracks) opens with "Basic Instinct (U Got Me)", an okay electro/techno rapping title track. Other okay tracks include "Girls Get Your Money" (lyrics could/should have been better), "Speechless" (okay electro-synthesizer sound, laid-back track with okay vocals), "Wants For Dinner" (another electro-synthesizer track, 'reggae' bass with great vocals) & "I Run With It" (laid-back track with an 'eerie' background sound). Great tracks include "Gimme Dat" (great electro-synthesizer, great drums & better rapping than the title track), "Yeah I Know" (great melodic electro-synthesizer sound, great drums & her vocals/rapping is great. Lyrics could/should have been better) & "You Can Get It" (laid-back track with great melody & vocals). Solid tracks/gems include "Ride" (has a great deep voice of Ludacris, fantastic laid-back vocals by Ciara, the song also has a great melody. Ciara declares, "They like the way I ride", quite a beautiful & sexy beat of a song), "Heavy Rotation" (a beautiful electro-synthesizer sound, great drums & great vocals. The song has a beautiful melody as well as wonderful harmonies. Ciara proclaims "Heavy rotation all night long", quite so invitingly tempting. This is my favourite track from this great CD & hence the title of my review) & "Turn It Up" (a fantastic dance track with a beautiful chorus & harmonies, featuring the great Raymond Usher on vocals). Although tracks like "Girls Get Your Money" & "Yeah I Know" needed better lyrics, there is no 'weak track' to really talk of on this CD. On overall, this is a great CD release with the usual sexual overtones that Ciara is well known for (which unfortunately may mask her brilliance somewhat), a recommended CD listening.
