In a Perfect World.......
on 16 July 2009
Got hold of this only a few days ago and have to say that I am exceedingly satisfied and happy with this CD. Keri Hilson is a very talented lady who has a great voice and impressive songwriting skills.
All of the songs on this album are excellent without any shadow of a doubt. All of the collaborations with other artists e.g. Keyshia Cole, Ne-Yo etc only serve to make a great album even greater.
From a personal point of view, the tracks which immediately stand out without having to press the so called rewind button are:
Return the Favor
Knock You Down
The Way I Are
But these are just personal choices, like I've stated already, all of the songs on this CD are great in their own right. Even the Intro is good so be sure to listen to it rather than simply skipping to get the other tracks.
Specific comments on some of the lesser known tracks are as follows:
Slow Dance - quite literally makes me want to slow dance with my better half! Everything about this is spot on, production, lyrics, vocal arrangements etc. In a subconscious way, there seems to be an underlying influence of Prince lurking in the background which makes me like this all the more.
Intuition - Wonderfully catchy from a chorus point of view. Again, nice lyrics, I think many ladies may be able to relate to what Keri sings about on this track. Very infectious.
Alienated - Another wonderful, atmospheric tune which if you listen to it on an ipod is absolutely fantastic.
I cannot recommend this album enough - if you love r'n'b/urban/Timbaland/hip hop then this is definitely one to buy for the collection. For anyone else, consider giving this one a try, you may be pleasantly surprised.
