EDITORS’ NOTES

The creamy melodies on Diary of Alicia Keys would sound just as magnetic oozing from lounge speakers as they do blaring from headphones. It’s this mostly mellow vibe (with flecks of funk) that makes the album such an indulgent listen. Keys makes her boldest move ever on the flirty, feel-good “You Don’t Know My Name,” and has the brash, emotional aura of an old blues singer on “Heartburn” and “Wake Up.”

Superb!

Alicia Keys is just incredible! I have had this album for over three years, and it has come to my attention that there is no comment?!

Wll Alicia I think you are absolutely fantastic. Could listen to you forever, this lovely sooth music!
Now i know i am only 14 but trust me, im not like one of those kids that likes heavy metal or rap, i like jazz, R&B and some indie. This is just awesome.
This women is brilliant at acting as well as singing. Some day i will go to your concert Alicia!

The funky side of Alicia

This album from the start was a much better listen than Songs In A Minor its more effortless and classicly inspired the songs are smoother and flow more effortlessly although not as good as the element of freedom its without doubt better than her 1st and 3rd offering i really enjoyesd this album and its definitely a classic album and one to be had in anybody's collection.

Excellent!

One of my favourite albums in my collection!
Every track is well produced, unique and creative. Excellent performances from Alicia. Love the classical undertones harking back to her past musical education and the silky smooth sounds.
