The Good And Bad Of Alicia Keys’ Jones Beach Show

Martin Johnson of Newsday reviewed ’ show at Jones Beach on Wednesday night showing “good ideas” and “signs of fatigue.” Johnson said, “In an era when several multi- platinum artists get by on image or dance skills, Keys can sing quite capably (in fact, she is that rare young artist with a sense of reserve and restraint), and she possesses a light touch on the piano. Where she struggles is in songwriting. Her own songs, most notably ‘Rock Wit U’ and her big hit, ‘Fallin”, lack enough melody and rhythmic complexity to successfully bear the added weight of such a large band.”
