    She is very talented both with her songwriting and is a classically trained pianist. Anyone who calls her rubbish is a complete idiot for those reasons. Not my piece of cake some of the time but some of her tracks are really good.

    She is definitely not rubbish, I love her to death.

    I have a big problem with how much she strains her voice and oversings though. You can even hear it in that video that was linked at the beginning to Empire State of Mind Part II, which is not exactly a hard song. She's always doing it. Missing notes, overstretching her range, etc etc. Her voice has a lot of feeling in it, her songs are always well composed though so it's not something insurmountable. I play her all the time.

    Alicia Keys is phenomenal! Pretty much the best artist out there at the moment. Empire State of Mind (without Jay Z) just blew me away first time I heard it on Youtube. 'Let's hear it for New Yooooooooooork', I heard her do a version for BBC 1Xtra, 'Let's hear it for Looooooondon'. Amazing.

    I agree with the OP
    her songs are hard to listen to at first because of her whiny voice but after a few listens its okay......... I love empire state of mind but I think thats due to my obsession with New York lol

    OP is crazy. Alicia cannot possibly get more props. Firstly the talent that she possesses as exemplified through her vocal ability, pianism? and hardbodies compositions puts her at a level that few other popular artists can attain. Lets not mention her looks. Jheeeze this woman is actually beautiful, but she carries herself with an air of class. She also doesn't prance around in stupid clothes and revealing outfits like that little sketta Lady Gaga cos she lets her music sell itself.
