LIKE the album cover, this new CD from 12-time Grammy Award winner Alicia Keys’ is simple yet beautiful.

Stand-out tracks include the single, Empire State of Mind (Part II), which is an elegant piano-led tribute to the Big Apple. The track is much better without interruptions from hip hop star, Jay-Z.

While the second released single, Doesn’t Mean Anything perfectly showcases Alicia’s stunning vocal range.

The album’s strong music is complemented by delicate vocals and heartfelt lyrics.

On occasions though the pounding drums drown out her voice, which is annoying. Overall a pleasant and enjoyable album that is definitely worth a listen.
