CRITIC REVIEWS

Pitchfork

It never quite lives up to its theme of rebirth, but especially given the range and power she's showed in the past, it doesn't really need to.

70
Consequence of Sound

This balance of radio-friendly R&B and piano ballads bursting with her irrefutable talent is a road frequently traveled for this singer, but it’s oh-so-entertaining to watch her set the road ablaze.

70
HipHopDX

Upon first glance there's an absence of radio singles on Girl On Fire, but aside from the strained vocals on the title track, A.Keys has delivered a subdued album.

60
FACT Magazine

What Girl On Fire is missing is the singles — either lovelorn or self-empowered — that helped carry Keys’ early albums.
