Alicia Keys, The Diary Of is one of the best albums in...”

Good Points
An unbelievable album. To think that she rights her own songs is something very unique in the music industry today with most singers having their songs written for them. The is far more mature than her original album but stills shows you what she first brought to the music industry years ago. There are many genres used in this album but there is a clear influence by soul music. The best song is If I Ain't Got You which is probably my favourite song ever. Other highlights of the album are You Don't Know My Name; Wake Up: Dragon Days; Heartburn and When You Really Love Someone.

Bad Points
I can't think of anything bad but some people may not like the first track as there is a strong classical influence due to her being a classically trained pianist.

General Comments
Alicia Keys, The Diary Of is one of the best albums in recent years with it being a bookmark for how a soul album should sound.
