Product Description

The final version of Ciara's third album, issued after several months of delay, is quite dissimilar from the one detailed in an August 2008 Billboard cover story. According to the article, Fantasy Ride was to be divided into three sections tentatively titled Groove City, Crunk Town, and Kingdom of Dance. At some point between then and the album's May 2009 release, this concept was mercifully scrapped, quite possibly because the track list underwent some changes. Regardless, it would not be difficult to construct an imaginary three-part Fantasy Ride from the finished product, with each song easy to slot into one of the designations. Had Ciara stuck with the city/town/kingdom concept, Groove City would have been the most populous and happening of the three. A couple of these ballads and slow jams are up there with the highlights from Goodies and The Evolution -- no coincidence that both were written and produced by the-Dream and Christopher Tricky Stewart (Rihanna's Umbrella, Beyonce's Single Ladies), the Jam and Lewis or Neptunes of their time. On the hypnotically winding Like a Surgeon (not a cover of Weird Al's Madonna parody), the-Dream provides some of his best, gimmicky, post-R. Kelly similes and metaphors, delivered by Ciara with all the necessary arrogance: I appreciate your recovery time, but you need a physical one more time. Keep Dancin' on Me, its opposite in sentiment, is as resigned and alluring as the-Dream's own Fancy, swapping dejection for a kind of blissful yearning. Blink and you will miss what was to be Crunk Town: High Price is a decent Oh revamp, with booming, low-end, creature-feature synths and Ludacris all part of the mix, though Ciara's outlandish operatics are a new (and nice) touch. The five uptempo tracks that would have been Kingdom of Dance are uneven, exemplified by the hobbling flop that is Love Sex Magic, an easily forgettable Justin Timberlake collaboration, and Work, an over-stuffed dancefloor mess that does not benefit from Missy Elliott's hoarse hectoring. Even if Ciara imaginatively develops the Super C superhero introduced in the disc's booklet, she and her collaborators will have to work extra hard on the next album to ensure that she does not stall in a creative cul de sac. [The deluxe edition adds the bonus tracks Echo and I'm On, both of which should have made the album proper, and a 50-minute DVD featuring three videos.] ~ Andy Kellman, Rovi

なんだかとっちらかった雰囲気のアルバム 印象に残る曲もあまりなくボツ曲集といわれても信じてしまいそう・・・ Love Sex Magicは格好いいです

”Get Up”や”1,2 Step”のようなクールネスよりも、”Promise”などのメロディアスな楽曲が並ぶポップなアルバム。長く延期が続きましたが、豪華な作家陣の名前に負けない出来栄えです。Chris Brownとの”Turntables”なんてすごくキャッチーで、収録は正解だったと思います。 紫の服を着たCiaraがジャケットの輸入盤には”Go Girl”が入っていないので、購入を検討している人は気をつけて下さいね!

Ciara

Dubbed the First Lady of Crunk & B by the producer who should know, Lil Jon, singer Ciara burst onto the scene with the never-gonna-get-it single Goodies, the breathy answer song to Petey Pablo's Freek-a-Leek. She was born in Austin, Texas, but with her father in the Army, Ciara spent time living in Germany, New York, California, Arizona, and Nevada before landing in Atlanta. In her early teens, s
