Alicia keys album has been reviewed by Billboard.Here is what the had to say.

The phrase “truly entertaining” does not apply to many artists nowadays, but Alicia Keys is one exception. This self-assured, illuminating “MTV Unplugged” performance underscores Keys’ boundless passion for her craft. Radio hits like “Karma,” “If I Ain’t Got You” and “Fallin’ ” sound new again, pumped up by Keys’ creative arrangements and cunning piano stylings. Then there is her knack for dusting off the right oldies and making them her own. Brenda Holloway’s Motown chestnut “Every Little Bit Hurts” gives way to a nicely updated version of the Rolling Stones’ “Wild Horses” with Maroon5’s Adam Levine. After something borrowed, there is something new: witty single “Unbreakable” (which samples the Eddie Kendricks-covered “Intimate Friends”) and the intriguing “Stolen Moments,” co-written with R&B icon Al Green. It is hard to believe Keys is only two albums into a career that strikes the perfect balance between old-school soul and contemporary R&B. —Gail Mitchell
