I love B, but this just doesn't do much for me... theres a few good songs but it all just seems to blend together and songs get lost in each other. I do love Love on Top though.... its got a good throwback vibe!

I kind of love this album. My favorite track is probably one of the bonus tracks though, 'Schoolin' Life' I can't get tired of it.

Been a long time since I heard her second name. She's one of those people you don't need it for.

Is giving shitty pop music awesome reviews the new fad at ap? Pitchfork has been doing it for a while by giving high scores to insanely dumb rap albums so you're not exactly being innovators.

That's one of my favorites too. So fun and catchy. I really like "1+1" and "I Miss You" too.

Not mad just amused, she has a good voice, so do a lot of top 40 acts. In the end it's the same mix of club bangers and cheesy quasi sentimental songs, I just don't think this album deserves the heaps of praise he gave to it.

It's a good review my initial comment may have been a bit harsh, guess it's just not my cup of tea.

If Ian wants to give the new Brokencyde 100%, let him..it's a freaking opinion for a reason.

I was trying to edit my last comment on my iPhone but it got so screwed up I just deleted it. I appreciate you taking the time to read my review and offer your opinion.

Agreed, Beyoncé is a good enough singer (though nowhere near a 10 IMO) but there are so many releases within the punk/metal/hardcore/indie/emo realm that get ignored that reviewing this is just a waste of time. It's going to sell thousands of copies. Mainstream review outlets will give it a great score. There's no need to review it in what I once thought was a place to read up on bands/artists of a lesser known variety.

I'm not much of a Beyonce fan myself, but this is a music site and pop music is still legitimate music that should be able to be reviewed as well. I'm a huge pop fan, and I enjoy that AP occasionally reviews pop music. To me, a lot of the bands covered on AP sound like a mix of the same, but it doesn't mean it shouldn't be reviewed just because I don't appreciate it. You are entitled to your opinion about not liking it as much as the reviewer does, but he still has a right to write it.
