I absolutely LOVED Chrisette's first CD, "I Am." I still listen to it. Her second CD, "Epiphany" was also a winner for me, even though I felt it was more garden variety R&B for the masses. It didn't have that same "spark" and "freshness" of her first CD, but I liked it nonetheless.

While I can listen to "Let Freedom Reign", it doesn't quite do it for me like her previous CD's. It has a commercial/poppy vibe and I feel that the CD was over-produced. They really should have applied the Coco Chanel Rule- after you get dressed remove the last accessory you put on. There are too many synthetic beats and other distractions, such that many of the songs sound the same, and not enough pure vocals. And Chrisette can SANG! I want to hear more of her amazing voice without all the background noise. "If Nobody Sang Along" is my fave track for the very reason that it is stripped down and her voice is showcased. However I'm sure that this CD will grow on me eventually.

I still love Chrisette and I'm hopeful that she will return to the original jazzy, funky-fresh style that caught my attention with "I Am."

The more I listen, the crazier I get about Let Freedom Ring. There are some bad reviews here on Amazon. Way more than I thought possible. So much so that I delayed writing anything here before having a little more time with the album.
Music being the emotional force that it is. Every one is entitled to their opinion. I, however am having a hard time finding any flaws in this album. Her singing is just breathtakingly beautiful, and powerful. I felt each song had it's own voice and purpose.

The only song that didn't hit me at first note was "So In Love" because Rick Ross makes my skin crawl every time he opens his mouth. Same song with a decent rapper would have been better, but the vocal arrangement more than makes up for this slight misstep. I'm pretty sure Let Freedom Ring will fit right into my top 5 of 2010 list.

Chrisette Michele the freshest voice of today, a woman of true talent with the bravery and steadfastness to earn her accolades the right way. A true inspiration to, and great role model for youth, young adults, and women of all ages, Chrisette rides in a lane of her own.

I've been with Chrisette from the beginning that we know of as, "I Am," her first album release that set the hearts of fans like myself on fire. Though in her, "Steady," track, she claims she's not underrated because of the things she's earned, I say the lady deserves one hundred times more. If anyone can get a hundred million YouTube views, or sell stupid numbers of units in their first week of sales, Chrisette Michele's talent alone should have her in those rankings. Oh, the perils of being a good girl, a true lady who carries herself as such on and off the stage.

Let Freedom Reign is packed full of hard hitting hits that make you say, "Hell yeah, Chris, we feel what you say, every word," to those laid back ballads we've come to know and love. From mixtapes to albums to singles, Chrisette is just what the music industry needs before, now, and in the future and I'm rocking with her all the way.

I'd recommend this album to any and everyone who just loves darn good music and the purest voice in the game today.

I was less than impressed when I heard the snippets. And when I finally heard the album, I wasn't enthused at all.
Her first album "I Am" will always remain a classic because I feel she used music that suited her voice. She's said herself that she patterned her voice after such jazz greats as Billie Holiday. Babyface recognized that factor, and expounded on it greatly with production.

Chrisette decided to go a different route for Epiphany, which was a setback. With Ne-Yo heading the project in production, he took her into the R&B realm, and not in a great way. Now he's back again on the third album, and it didn't work again. Not to say that Ne-Yo isn't a fantastic producer (after all, his album released last week and it was awesome!), but just not for Chrisette.

As far as "Let Freedom Reign" goes, so far I only like 2 songs on it: "Goodbye Game" and "Unsaid". Surprisingly enough, "So In Love" featuring Rick Ross is an okay track as well. I thought the title track featuring Talib Kweli and Black Thought would EASILY be the standout track, but it fails to deliver as well.

I'll give it another listen and maybe see if something changes my mind, but with Jazmine Sullivan, Eric Benet, and El Debarge's products being played start to finish on my iPod, I don't see Chrisette coming up to their level.

...that's exactly what I hear when listening to the "Let Freedom Reign" album. I will admit Chrisette's 3rd album is different from 1 and 2, but with anything in life there comes change. If a woman have been done wrong at some point of her life, she should have her moment to get mad, vent, bust the windows out his car, tie him up and make him think she is going to blow him up, LOL! or what-ever way she decides to handle the situation, but after a period of time, she needs to get real, dry up the tears, hold her head up and atleast act like she's ok. She needs to live again, love again, "Let Freedom Reign." Staying in that state of mind will mess with ones mind, and NOTHING is worth all that.

Getting back in the ball game of the living and being happy, is what I get from Chrisette's new album. She may not be totally over whatever it is she was going through(and I hear that to), but I applaud her for atleast trying to move on to bigger and better heights, and not stay stuck in the past. Although I love those sad, crying songs (nothing but the blues), there's only so much of the blues any person can take.

Seems to ME Chrisette have progressed tremendously, and there's so many women young and old, going through some of the same stuff Chrisette, and many other artist are going through with, love, relationships, and other mayhem(LIFE). Sorta like (1st) Elementary, (2nd)High School (7-12), (3rd)College, waiting to really experience life.

Chrisette reminds me so much of my daughter(who introduced her music to me), and they both need to get their HAPPY back and have some PEACE or is it PEACE and be HAPPY. In order to appriciate "Let Freedom Reign" a person is really going to have to LISTEN, and understand exactly what she is saying.
