Alicia Keys

As I Am

If you were wondering why Bob Dylan has been rhapsodising about Alicia Keys, you can get a good idea from her third studio album. ‘As I Am’ sees the piano songstress breaking free of her saccharine chains and delivering a streetwise, smoky set of real soul. ‘No-One’ takes gospel to a dark place, while ‘Teenage Love Affair’ is filthy and hilarious.
