In this respect the big tones work, the Ciara spits, rather already like endurance slogans. Whether she can detain her commercial fall with "Basic Instinct", however, may be doubted. Since to offer artistically she has a little. The R'n'B number "Ride" with her favorite guest Ludacris (already in hits as "oh" involved) splashes half-heartedly past, stands on behalf for a large part of the album. Elsewhere she warms up of other people ideas: "Girls Get Your Money" overworks itself in the emancipation hymns of Destiny's Child, the beat of "Yeah I Know" is a tolerable imitation of Snoop Doggs "Drop It Like It's Hot". Oh yes, and together with the everlasting R'n'B-sex symbol Usher it goes in "Turn It Up" of course on him - still announced - (euro) dance floor.
Maybe the only consolation for Ciara: Worse as many average US R'n'B albums of the last year is not "Basic Instinct". But at least one artist is able to do it just, nevertheless, clearly better than they: Beyoncé - as a soloist, for the rest, also since 2003 in the play.
