Overview

Cool & Dre, the rising production team behind the Game's "Hate It or Love It," handle all but one track on the third album from Christina Milian, and it is Milian's strongest album yet, if only by a narrow margin. The album is short on ideas, which are often taken from recent hits, and Cool & Dre aren't ashamed to swipe some of their own. The beat on "Say I," featuring Young Jeezy, is remarkably similar to the one used on "Hate It or Love It." "Who's Gonna Ride," featuring Three 6 Mafia, does nothing to mask its willingness to capitalize on Three 6's "Stay Fly." "Hot Boy" couldn't have been made without the existence of Destiny's Child's "Soldier." The other setback is that Milian's weakness remains ballads; the few that are here are more like placeholders that merely apply some forced variety to the album. But the club tracks are perfectly functional and appealing, even when they're secondhand, and a lot of it has to do with Milian's flirtatiously pouty charm.

Not an absolute up front stunner at first, but because her voice is so appealing, and the songs are much gritier, "So Amazin'" is a much stronger album than her last. Starting off with a smash single "Say I" gets the disc off to a great start, but it's the songs in between that requires more than one listen in order to get the full effect of the entire LP. The ballads leave something to the imagination, although with her voice she somehow pulls them off. Despite some weak material which is very few, the dance tracks more than makes up for the lack not so hot slow songs. The funny thing about this album is that it actually gets better towards the later half, with tracks picking up where the beginning left off. With a stronger, gritier sound than her last CD, "So Amazin'" is definitly worth the listen, and is actually her best album so far.
