Product Description

Twelve-time Grammy Award winner Alicia Keys' The Element of Freedom includes single, “Doesn’t Mean Anything”, written and produced by Alicia and her longtime production partner Kerry “Krucial” Brothers. Alicia describes The Element of Freedom as a dichotomy of strength and vulnerability with the music really strong, drums aggressive, yet her voice vulnerable and delicate. The album includes "Empire State Of Mind (Part II)", a sequel to the hometown anthem and her second collaboration with hip-hop superstar Jay-Z. It’s her own version and includes a new verse from Jay-Z. In addition to Brothers, the singer/songwriter/producer enlists the production talents of Jeff Brasker (Kanye West, Keri Wilson). The deluxe edition DVD features intimate studio performances of "Doesn’t Mean Anything", "Empire State of Mind (Part II)" "Try Sleeping With A Broken Heart", "No One" and the music video of "Doesn’t Mean Anything".

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Album 'again' 13 Jan 2010
Format:Audio CD
There is always a concern when buying a new album from an artist who has consistently produced fantastic albums. Is the new album going to be a dissapointment? Not quite achieving previous musical brilliance or just too similar to the last CD to be worthwhile. No worries in this instance. A fantastic collection of songs yet again by the superb Alicia Keys.

5.0 out of 5 stars Getting better with each listen... 2 Feb 2010
By David
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
First listening I thought it a bit samey, piano heavy (I know, she's a pianist) and anodyne. It is a grower though and has some stand-out emotionally depthy songs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Element Of Freedom (Deluxe Edition) 18 Dec 2009
By Mapoo
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Fantastic Album, heard the 14 Track Album on Spotify loved it, so im giving it 5 Stars because I love the Album. I have just orderd the Cd and waiting for Amazon delivery for it. I've orderd the Deluxe Version as there is 2 Extra songs on this Version and a Dvd. I wanted to hear the other 2 songs. So this is why I orderd this one.

Alicia keys is a great Vocalist, Song writer and Composer.

If you like Alicia and her stuff then you will like this, its very Different and the lyrics mean something. Really good Album.

Can't wait to get my Hands on the Cd!

Format:Audio CD
The Element of Freedom

If you only want an opinion on whether to choice this cd or not you have come to the right reviewer. You will never be disappointed in any of the works of Alicia. It could be the first album or the Platinum (since been brought out after TEOF with first 3 albums on) and it will always keep a dedicated place in your music collection. This is fantastic and when you buy it you will wonder why you ever hesitated.
