Biography

To Fantasia, life and music can never be separated. So when the 26-year-old, eight-time Grammy nominee titled her third album Back to Me, she was making her current goals, both creative and personal, crystal clear.

“When I was on American Idol,” she says, “people fell in love with the young lady who took her shoes off to come onstage, who spoke her mind and didn't ... Read more in Amazon's Fantasia Store

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Start 29 Nov 2004
Format:Audio CD
Fantasia blew me away from the first time I heard her on American Idol 3. She sounded like a superstar, she looked like a superstar. I had extremely high hopes for this album.
The biggest dilemma for what to do with Fantasia was obvious from the end of the competition - Soul or RnB. The younger market (i.e. RnB) won here. Fans of Fantasia from her American Idol 3 performances should approach with caution - with a couple of exceptions, the backing band and vocal rawness is gone, and beats and polished production are in.
My biggest regret is that the producers (and maybe even Fantasia herself) have turned what could have been the NEXT Aretha Frankin into just another RnB/Hip Hop singer in an already crowded market.
Sadly (and I really regret having to say this) - this album doesn't live up to her American Idol performances. Most albums start great and trail off towards the middle and end - this is almost the opposite. The opening 'Ain't Gonna Beg' isn't the start I'd have liked - it's a little sterile and not the statement of intent it should have been. 'Free Yourself' is better, but there's just no meat to it either. 'Truth Is' is again just okay - just more slow RnB by numbers. I'm no record producer - but whoever came up with the track order needs a slap.
Track 4 - 'Selfish' is where things pick up (finally). Finally a bit of that Fantasia attitude comes through, with an unusual melody (courtesy of Missy Elliot).
From here - it's all good. 'Summertime' is a great rendition - with an excellent arrangement. It's the first time on the album you think "WOW - that girl can SING!". Trademark vocal gymnastics, emotion and sheer class.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Fantasia 14 Mar 2006
By ileola
Format:Audio CD
Fantasia made AI3 - the girl can SAAAAANG. Watched all her AI performances from top 10 and boy can she deliver. While she may not have the most flawless of vocals (still great though) her voice is soulful and rich and she carries you with each song. Truth is - her first single - absolutely beautiful - Free Yourself is another brilliant one - This is me and Baby Mama are both fantastic numbers. This is a standout first album !. She got nominated for 4 grammys - didnt win any - but her time will definately come. Really hope her 2nd album has some live tracks - cos when Fantasia sings live - she has NO equal

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed 16 Mar 2005
Format:Audio CD
The first time I heard Fantasia sing, it sent shivers down my spine. THIS was the most amazing voice I had heard in a LONG time. There was so much soul in that voice; so vibrant, so full, so "haunting"... I could not wait for the album.
I had such high hopes, and when I first saw the album, I did not hesitate in buying it.
Fantasia, I hate to say this, but what on earth happened? Where is that magical, INDIVIDUAL spark that you showed us on American Idol?
I was hoping for something as beautiful, and unique as Fantasia herself. Instead, what I got was the same old run of the mill R&B that hundreds (if not thousands) of other singers are churning out by the bucketload, which is keeping all the GOOD music off the radio airwaves... Sure, Fantasia has an awesome voice, but it is totally lost in this album...
I hope that the next album will bring back the spark, and soul of the lady with the most incredible voice of this millenium.

5.0 out of 5 stars Girl can cut a record 9 Feb 2006
Format:Audio CD
I was watching the auditions and when i saw fantasia sing my body started the shiver, her voice touched me and i said to my boyfried she's going to win. Her performance every week was brilliant and the album was even better. The songs on the ablum the words and the way she sang them was like she was talking to u and saying to u that things are possible. A brilliant singer and a brilliant album, Keep ur head up high girl.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good! 3 April 2005
By M. Hill
Format:Audio CD
This is a good record, But you can also tell it has come from Simon Cowell bunch!!!
You wont be able to see what fantasia can do till the next album, because this album was done before she won the show. But it is a good album, listen out for baby mama.

5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful and mind blowing 3 April 2005
Format:Audio CD
I brought this album because my cousin said it was brillant and she constantly plays it, so I brought it and yes I too have not yet put it down. Her voice alone blows you away. I love everysong on the album - which is not common for me. She sings with love and passion and you will find it hard to put down. I am now worried about my exam revision timetable which starts tomorrow!

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantasia is the next big thing 14 Jan 2005
By Len112
Format:Audio CD
I watched in awe as she steamrolled the oposition in American Idol , she had so much natural ability it seemed like she shouldn't be in the competition as it seemed unfair to the other contestants , but she rightly won . This album doesn't scratch the surface of this girl's talent , firstly you have to see her perform live to appreciate how incredible she is , secondly the material though very good doesn't allow her to really show the personality she displayed on the show . Having said that it could easily have sounded generic but doesn't as her voice is so distinctive and she knows how to use it . I certainly would recommend this album to anyone whose a fan of Beyonce ,Ashanti , Brandy etc , although personally I think Fantasia could teach them all something
