Review Roundup: Keyshia Cole - 'A Different Me'

  /  12.16.2008


Keyshia Cole’s third studio album A Different Me hits stores and digital retailers today. Find out what the critics are saying below.

Entertainment Weekly: Fortunately, Cole still sounds plenty intense singing about finding a guy who completes her; in her experience-ravaged vocals you can hear relief, but also the knowledge that stability has a way of attracting trouble. B

The New York Times: Ms. Cole’s version of swoon is decidedly temperate. Where her voice was once assured and three-dimensional, here, although many of the songs are pleasant, Ms. Cole comes off flat. Tension is what animates her, and there’s hardly a rebuke in sight.

Boston Globe: She’s not trying to take you out with the riptide this time. “You Complete Me” is soulful and vulnerable, with a lack of mistrust and defiance. The acoustic “This Is Us” is sweet, gorgeous, and should be a smash. The ballad “Trust” with Monica has a swirl of strings that complements the two big voices.
