sounds good.. pretty much what I expected.. I still think she's musically she's better off without Dupree.
I feel that with him, she makes good songs, but they are songs for the moment. They are good now but will not have lives on there own..
A song is GREAT when you know that you'll hear it years from now and it takes you back to that moment and time when it was first out. and/or it's still fresh, you could release the same album years from now and still do well..
Look at THRILLER 25, near #1 all over the world.. (this is just a high level example)
If you put on one of her albums in from the 80's -90's, most of the album will be a hit in your mind. when you get to 00's there are selected songs on the albums that have that.. NOW with this one and the one before, they are good albums, but albums for the moment..
10 years from now I don't see them being 'classics'
