I love this new disc from Alicia Keys. Every thing that Alicia puts out sounds fresh and unique. My favorite track is "Empire State Of Mind". This is a song about how New York can be a source of inspiration. My other favorite track is "Wait Till You See My Smile". This song makes me feel good, and it has a great beat. "Try Sleeping With A Broken Heart" is a beautiful cut. "Put It In A Love Song" is a upbeat duet with Beyonce. "This Bed" is a good dance cut. I like this song very much. "Distance And Time" is a pretty song. It is a romantic song. "Unthinkable" is a smooth and probably the most sensual track on the album. Alicia shines on the piano on the song "Doesn't Mean Anything". "How It Feels To Fly" is an uplifting song. Alicia wears her heart on her sleeve on the song "Love Is A Disease". There is a honesty in her voice that makes her sound real. "Like The Sea" is another soulful gem of a song here. The Element Of Freedom is an excellent album.
