Diary Of Alica Keys

CD (Item 544847) J Records, 2003 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock


Also available
Alicia Keys — Diary Of Alica Keys (with bonus DVD) ... CD 1.99
Don't write Alicia Keys off simply because she's a pop princess! This second album might sit at the top of the charts for six months, or it may falter quickly and be seen a "sophmore slump" – but whether you see clips on Access Hollywood or not, this Diary is pretty nice to our ears! Diary Of Alicia Keys finds the piano playing, jaw-droppingly beautiful chanteuse rocking a more outwardly hip hop feel on the best tracks, particularly the probable singles "You Don't Know My Name" (with production by Chicago's favorite son Kayne West) and "Heartburn" (with Timbaland on the beats). But the girl is by no means simply a typical prefab Clive Davis hitmaker – she wrote or co-wrote most of the music here, and she's the top billed producer on most of it, too. Alicia isn't re-inventing the wheel here, and her lyrics aren't the most deeply-thoughtful introspection you'll find out there (especially for an album with the word "diary" in the title), but there's no denying the soul, or the endearing catchiness of the hooks & beats! Other tracks include "Karma", "If I Ain't Got You", "When You Really Love Someone", "Diary" (with Toni!Tony!Tone!), "Slow Down" and more.  © 1996-2023, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Used CD Grade

We only use the grade "Used CD" for non-new CDs. This all-encompassing grade was chosen it because we only buy and offer used CDs in the best possible condition.

When you purchase a used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use, but if there are significant details or defects we will describe the item's condition (just like we do with LPs), so look for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details before ordering.

All of our used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. After you receive a used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly. If it does not, you can request a return for a full refund.

Def Soul, 2000. Used
Classic-styled soul from Musiq Soulchild – his debut set for Def Soul, and the start of a great run of mellow grooves! As you might guess from the compressed wording of the title, the tunes here have a great set of flow – a laidback, kicked-back sort of sound that's not nearly as full-o ... CD

Walk Alone
Indie Blu, 2010. Used

Yolanda Johnson

Violet Flower
Meta Music, 2006. Used
