I absolutely love this album, and 'Femme Fatale' is one of my favorite tracks of the year.

I Need a Dollar is my ringtone. Heard it as the theme song for How to Make It In America and loved it.

"Oddly enough, this is the one track where his signature emotion doesn't always shine through to match the lyrical content."

about "mama hold my hand" ?!!?!?!?

i had to choke back tears the first time i heard the song, and i am an emotionless robot. other than that, solid review. i'd personally rate it in the high 80s though!

Oh don't get me wrong, the lyrics got to me something fierce. I just didn't feel as much emotion in his voice in this song as I did the rest of the album. The disparity between the lyrics and vocals was kind of odd to me.

Totally agree with the reviewer rating. Love this album. Straight quality. You should check out his cover of Michael Jackson' "Billie Jean."
