You'd think Amerie 's path would be without obstacles going forward, but album number three -- this one -- was left unreleased in the States. In other territories, where it was released, it was left to rot. It's a shame; the album is loaded. The amicable and possibly temporary split between Amerie and her primary producer, Rich Harrisonmight've been a cause for some concern, but this set of songs Crush - Amerie - Because I Love It altogether more colorful and varied than both All I Have and Touch.
It's almost excessively generous, provided you are able to keep up and absorb a set of songs that, sequentially, is of exceptionally distinct halves. Each one of the songs is an energy rush, and it can be overbearing to be confronted by the boundlessly enthusiastic voices of a woman who is thrilled to be making music and isn't afraid to sound like it. That only accounts for the majority of the album's first half. The first half's other two songs, the Malcolm McLaren -sampling "Some Like It" Crush - Amerie - Because I Love It gooey mess, like a candy-shop paella and "Crush" a late-'80s freestyle throwback, clipped synthetic orchestra hits and allpoint the way toward the second half, where there's a lot more breathing room.
Though a couple ballads are middling, Amerie 's efficiency is unwavering, and any of their shortcomings are made forgivable by "Paint Me Over," where her Sometimes.
- Erykah Badu - Baduizm are as stinging as her resignations are disarming. What's most impressive about the album is how Amerie lassoes each song, whether it requires salt, sugar, heartache, delight, or any combination thereof.
