Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
"Just Like Me" is a pretty interesting song, and although I'm not a big fan of auto-tune, "Blame It" is one of the best tracks. Even so, there are two issues I have with it: 1) the Tonight Show proved that Jamie could sing this song perfectly well WITHOUT using auto-tune (as reviewer P. Duncan said best; more on that later), and 2) even though T-Pain did announce his name before his verse started, could you really tell the difference between his and Jamie's parts? Anyway, the necessary end-of-album keep-your-head-up song "Love Brings Change" actually ends the album nicely.
When I think of missteps, I once again refer to P. Duncan. The fast songs are best catered to men half Jamie's age. In the obligatory song featuring Lil Wayne, "Number One", a sample of Beastie Boys' "The New Style" is used in such a way that it makes the production sound like some rejected Pac-Man background music (Just Blaze produced that???). But the song was already on shaky ground with Wayne making bizarre puns like "Girl if you're gay/I can be your Marvin." (WTF?) And "I Don't Need It" made me say just that. Sexual ballads aren't the best either; well, "Freak'in Me" is tolerable, but I think most people would rather hear Marsha Ambrosius talk about making love, not freakin'. And "Slow" is skippable not only because of that silly "mmm mmm mmm mmm fine" part during the second verse, but also because of lines like "I gotta take my time with you `cause your ish is the ish" and "Ima break that body like a cake". What?
But I guess I shouldn't be surprised by the lyrics in the latter because that's one of the three songs on here written by Tricky and The-Dream (the other two being "Rainman" and the corny "Digital Girl"). Everything else is okay, but if you're not a big fan of Jamie's music, B.I.F.
Jamie has always been a great singer and to see yet another phenomenal album come through with a great price in time for the holidays just proves that versatality of this entertainer. This is a man who takes nothing forgranted and made sure to let everyone know that his album is $9.99. Like a few other artists he recognizes that his fans income may be a bit challenged but they should not have to find $15 for an album.
Most importantly-the music-the vocals; IMO there is nothing as seductive as a black man sing but when he can SANG then you must trust and buy this album. There is an edited and explicit version so buy what makes you happy or what the kids can listen to. You can check out videos or live performances of some of the songs on yahoo and you tube. My fav song is
The albums opens with the brilliant "Just Like Me" featuring T.I., which is equally as strong as 2005's mega #8 hit "Unpredictable". The production work and songwriting by The-Dream and Tricky Stewart (I think) are sick as always, and Foxx is vocally on fire. T.I.'s performance is top-notch as well, making for a solid opening statement. "I Don't Need It" is produced by none other than Timbaland. Solid and enjoyable, though not as effective as "Just Like Me". However, none can deny the catchiness of the hook "B**ch, I don't need it", even if it is incredibly corny. But, that's our Timbaland, isn't it?
"Number One" featuring Lil' Wayne is more enjoyable than "I Don't Need It" with its sick production work by Just Blaze. Lil Wayne may be the best part of the track, though Foxx is great too. "Digital Girl" featuring Kanye West & The Dream is solid, though forgettable in comparison to "Just Like Me", "I Don't Need It", or the blazing "Number One" that precedes it. It is enjoyable enough, but the T-Pain featured "Blame It" easily steals the show and reshapes the lost momentum. "She Got Her Own" featuring Ne-Yo and Fabolous is a bit lengthy, but I think that the overall performance and songwriting is impeccable. Again, Shaffer "Ne-Yo" Smith writes another potent song.
After a pointless interlude ("Intuition Interlude") Foxx gives another convincing vocal performance on "I Don't Know". The production is soulful laden (given the soul sample) making for another solid performance. A couple of tracks follow that are solid or merely average ("Weekend Lover", "Why", and "Freakin' Me" featuring Marsha Ambrosius of Floetry). "Freakin' Me" is a bit better than the former two, but it still falls short of the best. "Slow" is lengthy, but resurrects the energy of INTUITION, while "Rainman" is 'take it or leave it'. The album ends strong with numbers "Overdose" and the fine "Love Brings Change".
Despite the concessions to contemporary R&B, Foxx isn't always 100% effective is making INTUITION near as coherent as his Grammy nominated UNPREDICTABLE. What Foxx does do well is that he still manages to make INTUITION one of the more enjoyable R&B albums of 2008, particularly where some albums have fallen flat. Not perfect, but above average in my eyes. 3.5 stars.
