Well, this is a good album for a pop artist and shows a rare thread of artistry but, unfortunately the fact that there are 2 discs of similar music means there are quite a few fillers. If this was a single disc of the best 15 songs I would have given this a definate 4 star. Another problem I have is the over-use of voice and the 'woahs' and 'yeahs'. Too much. Still, good production.
OVERALL: 154/220 = 7/10 = 3.5/5

Overall, this album is very similar to Gwen Stefani's - a definite artistry but some weak points.
1) Afraid - Quite a simple track. Catchy and fun. 8/10
2) Maneater - Obvious choice for the first single. Has hit written all over it. 10/10
3) Promiscuous - Slightly embarassing in places. Not my kind of song. 4/10
4) Glow - A catchy song but can get annoying and repetitive. 6/10
5) Showtime - Nice mid-tempo song. Not the best but enjoyable. 7/10
6) No Hay Igual - Starts with a good flow but soon becomes annoying. Good beat and rythym. 6/10
7) Te Busque - Great latin vibe about this song. Good formulaic melody… Read more

The tracks run smoothly together and there is an underlying enchantment throughout.
Alex's voice shines in both emotion (on tracks such as Lost Without A Name and Sweeter & Sweeter) and in the upbeat, rockier tracks (Lie and From The Inside). The great production - which was missing on Introduction - lifts Alex's vocals and… Read more
