    ...Its ok....

    ...brought the CD...its ok...not as great as her 1st one. In her second CD its more pop, mixed with a little alternative, with just enough RB/Hip Hop. I think this is her, "I just want to be free and be me" album. It has to grow on you.

    It's okay

    I do like this CD but Beyonce borrows from a lot of people style (which she thinks is original) because Deja Vu is Teena Maire all day long. Moreover, you can tell she wrote "Upgrade U", "Ring the Alarm", and "Freakum Dress" because they are not as sharp lyrical as the rest of the songs. However not caring for 3 out of 10 songs is still a good thing...so I'll pick this one up.

    Forecast of B'Day

    If you are a true Beyonce fan you should know she writes her true feelings in her music. Although she is a quiet as kept type of person, Beyonce has many wonderful talents and also reveals much of herself through her music. I like the first two singles, however the album sounds to me a bit rushed. I really think Beyonce could have done a much better job on her sophmore album than whats presented to the public. Like her boyfriend said in his black album "treat my first like my last and my last like my frist" She should have made sure her next album was a better album than her first. If I were to take a poll with 10 people, 7 out of 10 would prefer her freshman album rather than this one. I am very open minded to change and I embrace her new image. I think its very sexy and sensual. I just don't know how well the ablum will do in sales.

    Not what I expected...

    I'm not really sure what I expected, but this wasn't really it. Maybe I was expecting some sort of continuation of "Dangerously In Love". Of course Bee had to grow, but to me she regressed. The whole two week thing was very apparent. Even though the album isn't that great, my personally favorites are "Irreplaceable", "Resentment", and even "Ring the Alarm".
