An improvement over the first but she yes yet to evolve into a diva
on January 2, 2007
Ciara: The Evolution is a slight improvement over her first CD. Granted the child still can't SANG but she is a performer like Janet & Aaliyah before here. The lead single Promise has really grown on me and has a early Vanity/Appoliana 6 feel to it (the video is proof this statement). With the exception of "Promise," The Evolution lacks clear-cut highlights on the level of "Goodies," "1, 2 Step," and "Oh from her first album. Ciara must have been trying to show her growth as artist but she fails for the most part. Other than Promise, Can't Leave Em Alone and I Found Myself there isn't really to much mentoin.
