Album leaked today...great album...Girl On Fire does an injustice to how good the rest of it is...standouts to me are "That's When I Knew" ,"101", "Fire We Make", "Not Even The King'....she came back real nice with this one

    Good to know yo! Seems like a case with her last 2 albums. I hated No One and Doesn't Mean Anything, her leading singles, but the rest of material on both albums was on point.

    for me it's not as good as "Diary" but her album is better than the last by far!
    "101", "Fire We Make" and "When It's All Over" are on point. I was suprised by "LimitedLess", Not the best tracks, but it's a different style.

    Heard Brand New Me today..sooo much better than Girl on Fire.
  • I'm not feelin it aside from Brand New Me and Fire We Make with Maxwell. I was expecting more from her...

    Finally downloaded it. Gonna check it out now. I'm hoping it's a lot better than her last effort.

    Ok I played the album. At first I was thinking it was trash but it got better for the second half. I'll definitely say this is superior to The Element of Freedom. Obviously the Maxwell track is the standout. I also liked "Not Even the King"..

    But I'm accepting the fact that we'll never get the old Alicia back. Vocally she isn't as good as she used to be and has even slipped musically. I don't feel like I'll play this album a lot but maybe that'll change.
