There is no denying, Jennifer Hudson has an amazing voice, however it is not a voice best suited to club tracks. Thankfully someone at her label understood this and we have an album perfectly suited to Jennifer's voice and not a clone of something best left to the Pussycat Dolls. The album consists of production from the best of the moment, these being Timbaland, Stargate, T-Pain, Warryn Campbell, The Underdogs, Polow Da Don & Missy Elliott. Due to this, the album is a collection of well sung, well written R&B with just enough modern day spin to make them accessible to the masses.
The album deals with mostly slowed down tracks, none of which however are boring. They are all very engaging due to Jennifer's voice and the lyrics. Some of the stand outs of the slow songs would be Polow Da Don produced 'My Heart' 'Invisible' from the Underdogs and surprisingly the T-Pain duet 'What's Wrong (Go Away)' The best thing about these songs is that although they talk about love, they sound more sincere than most of the other songs out there at the moment and the songs deal with the topic of love from angles that are not usually taken by the average pop song (hence it avoids sounding cliched).
Slow tracks aside, there are some songs which up the tempo a bit, such as lead single 'Spotlight' which is already top 15 on the charts here in the UK, and Timbaland produced 'Pocketbook' which features Ludacris. The interesting thing about this song is that it doesn't quite seem to fit with the rest of the album, leaning very heavily towards the current urban-pop standard. The song isn't bad, it sounds a bit out of place.
One of the most interesting songs on the album is 'Can't Stop The Rain' produced by Stargate and written by Ne-Yo, this song deals with a topic rarely talked about in music today.

I bought this albulm off the back of really liking the single 'Spotlight'and I was not disappointed. It is a really good albulm with a great mix of songs on it, I don't think there was one that I flicked through. I think that Jennifer Hudson has a brilliant voice and this really shows it off.

I bought this album after hearing "Spotlight" on the radio. If the rest of the album had been like that, I would have been very happy. However, despite Jennifer's amazing voice, I found myself a little disappointed. Apart from "Spotlight", none of the songs seemed that memorable to me. I really wanted to like it more, but it's just that it wasn't that remarkable. Most of the songs are soulful ballads, but they seem to be slightly lacking in the kind of soul that made, for instance, Aretha Franklin's music so brilliant.

Jennifer Hudson is definitely a talent to watch, and I will certainly check out her work in the future. However, this wasn't quite up to the standard I was expecting. I really wanted to give it 4 stars, because she sure can sing and it should be good, but I just don't feel I can stretch to it. It's good, so it get's 3 stars, but it isn't great.

Having watched Dreamgirls time and time again and it having become my favourite all-time film I was destined to buy this new offering from its star-Jennifer Hudson. I already knew that Jennifer was a fantastically talented vocalist, but I did wonder how that would translate into a music album. As it turns out I was wrong to have doubts as this is a brilliant album and in no way sounds like a debut, but instead like the work of a mature and accomplished artist.
1.Spotlight-This was clearly demarkated as the first single with its catchy hook and mid-tempo beat. Great! 9/10
2.If This Isn't Love-A super track, which tends to blend a bit in comparison with some of the other more powerful numbers. 8/10
3.Pocketbook-A fantastic r&b track, which displays a great deal of originality and proves that Jennifer cannot only sing ballads. 9/10
4.Giving Myself-A song purely designed to showcase her amazing vocals. 10/10
5.What's Wrong (Go Away)-Oddly the electro T-Pain and soulful Jennifer work brilliantly together on this track, in which they end up screaming at each other. 9/10
6.My Heart-A more understated and funky song. 8/10
7.You Pulled Me Through-Probably my favourite track here, a powerful and emotive ballad. 10/10
8.I'm His Only Woman-A duet with Fantasia and is over the top, dramatic and hence amazing! 10/10
9.Can't Stop The Rain-A strange track lyrically-good, but not my favourite. 7/10
10.We Gon' Fight-Initially I liked this track, but I've gone off it a bit. 7/10
11.Invisible-OK, but a bit forgettable. 7/10
12.And I'm Telling You I'm Not Going-Wow, what can I say simply stunning. 10/10
13.Jesus Promised Me A Home Over There-Another brilliant showcase of vocal flexibility. 8/10
14.All Dressed In Love-Upbeat, funky and catchy! 9/10

Dreamgirl Jennifer Hudson is absent here...

A girl with such a voice should be putting it to good use
and not lower herself to sing such rubbish...

r'n'b, not old school r'n'b, is really the poorest form of music
and anyone with a minimum of music taste would have thought
it hadn't lasted past the one shot... sadly we have been plagued with it for over a decade !

I can only hope she'll come round to her senses and make use of her real talent.
