Review The R&B stunner had deliver something major to top her Grammy-hogging 2001 debut Songs in A Minor. She gets halfway there by cracking open her Diary and spreading her wings with the beat-driving numbers like "Karma" and "Heartburn" (coproduced by Keys and Timbaland). Then she has a good time covering Gladys Knight's "If I Were Your Woman." Keys, however, proves to be a better singer than songwriter, as most of the latter half of the album slips into sleepy piano numbers. Sure, "You Don't Know My Name" and "Samsonite Man" are soulfully gorgeous, but we're wagering that you'll feel a little drowsy after sitting through this.

Review Alicia Keys already has a lot of mystique to live up to for such a tender thing. On her debut, Songs in A Minor, she was acclaimed as a soul prodigy fusing Biggie and Chopin. Keys played piano, wrote the great "Fallin'," wore a cool hat and won more Grammys than she'd had hot breakfasts. But success hasn't spoiled her, because she's clearly been woodshedding. The Diary of Alicia Keys is an assured, adult statement, steeped in the complicated love life and musical dreams of an ambitious young woman who has absorbed enough Nina Simone and Aretha Franklin records to live up to the soul promise of "Harlem's Nocturne." Keys evokes Gladys Knight ("If I Was Your Woman") and Dionne Warwick ("Walk On By"), but the seductive adult spell of "You Don't Know My Name" is all her own.
