KEYS by Alicia Keys

Alicia Keys is legendary already, and every album she comes out with only adds to that status. This one was a bit odd as it’s a double album of originals and then remixes, so I just stuck with the first half - the originals. There are some good songs throughout, although none of them are stand out anthems. You want a bit of Girl on Fire, don’t you? But Keys’s talent shines from start to finish, and even when things get a little bit jazzy, I’m totally on board. Good times.

It really stands up to the hype test - glorious from start to finish. There are some real highlights, of course, and Underdog massively stands out from the crowd. But I loved the somewhat chill feeling throughout. It feels like a solid, unified work, lots of self-awareness and learning and feeling good about yourself.
