You hear those words spoken, BEYONCE, and you automatically think, beauty, success, and someone who can actually sing. People who actually rate this album with a 3 star or less obviously have no idea what they are talking about, music wise, and are basing their rating merely on opinions.
Indeed, the cd begins outstanding with a hip, fast r&b approach, with Carzy in Love, Nauhgty Girl, Baby Boy, and Hip Hop Star. After, she tries to bring the speed down almost for the rest of the cd, with Be with you, Me Myself and I, And Speechless as examples. This i would have to say is expected, following the name given to the cd, Dangerously in Love, it was obvious the cd was to be diverse in musical vocals.
Each song has a unique tune to it, obviously she's trying to prove her diversity as an artist. And man, she hits the spot. Not only can she prove to be more than an R&B artist, she sings passionatly and you can feel her emotions as she belts out those high B Sharps.
Her debut album is an example of an artist who knows what they're doing. She can bring you into the mood of each song, and how she brings the vocals from fast to slow, its a jolly old rollercoaster ride, and it was a pleasure to listen to.
Although, heres come criticism in my opinion. Although all the ttracks are excellently written and produced, I was hoping to here more upbeat songs rather than sad love songs. I'm not much of a slow song person, but she can bring you in and like it no matter what. Despite that, more faster songs would be pleasant to hear on the track.
