HEAR: Alicia Keys - The Diary of Alicia Keys

Alicia Keys is one soulful musician. I'm quite impressed by her talent for someone her age. She's well on her way to becoming a fixture in Diva-dom. The track that caught my attention and made me buy this album was the single, "You Don't Know My Name." I love the old-school R&B sound. Oh man, it sounds sooooo good. It's an ode to old-school soul, and I can't help but adore this song for it. And the monologue bit she does is classic. Love her sense of humour. Unlike my usual listening habit, I actually pay attention to the lyrics of some of her songs.

The other two awesome tracks are #4 and #6. Don't care for the stuff that leans more towards hip-hop. She should just stick to good ol' soul.
