Keri Hilson's done alright here, her second album consists of R&B pop style tunes with elements of dance in them. Her bostful first single 'Pretty Girl Rock' is fun tune were lyrically Keri just goes on & on.... about herself "dont hate me because im beautiful. mad cause im cuter than the girl thats wicha. no question that this girls a ten" shes so modist isnt she? - shes only having a laugh & a bit of fun. The rest of her album is mixed with some tunes equally as good. But some are more growing tunes and a few will not float your boat. But I think Keri Hilson fans will really like this album.

I do have to say another negative to this album is no not the songs, its the acctual album. Whats the first thing you look at when looking at the album?. The cover. The covers awful, it just doesnt work at all. And the album name no boys allowed has to be the worst name I've heard for an album in many years. Its almost as if shes saying 'no males can buy this', 'girls only' I think she may loose a lot of male fans with an album like this. But if the cover was changed to something more universal and the name was changed to something a lot better. It would have a more better feel & would be seen overall much better. But the songs are alright..... 4 out of 5

Keri Hilson's first album, In A Perfect World..., was a good but patchy affair. No Boys Allowed is a much more consistent R&B album that flows well from beginning to end. The title is intended to mean that Hilson wants men in her life rather than boys, and a lot of the songs tend to revolve around this theme. "Breaking Point", for example, riffs on the theme of every woman having a breaking point in a relationship beyond which she cannot take any more, "Buyou" is about financial independence, and "The Way You Love Me" is an overtly sexual track about her appreciation for her man's prowess. The album is mostly filled with midtempos (with the ballad "All The Boys" and the frantic "The Way You Love Me" being one of the few exceptions), and the best indicators of the album are probably "One Night Stand" and "Lose Control", both of which you should be able to find music videos for on YouTube).

There are some missteps on this - some of the lyrics could have been considerably better written in places, especially in some of the guest raps (see, for example, Nelly's section of the otherwise very good "Lose Control") - but the music is strong throughout. Even the weaker tracks have grown on me since I bought this album ten months ago. "Pretty Girl Rock" is probably the standout here, with the message that every woman ought to feel beautiful and take pride in themselves, but it can come across as a slightly egotistical if read incorrectly.

However, if you're thinking of getting this album, I recommend the digital-only deluxe version of this album (No Boys Allowed) - it's much better value and the additional tracks are definitely worth it.

I really enjoyed this album. I have always loved Keri Hilson's stuff. I think she could of done a little bit better, but I still love it. My favorite tracks are Lose Control and Toy Soilder.
