The Diary of Alicia Keys

Published January 15, 2004.Alicia KeysThe Diary of Alicia Keys(J)No one should have to follow a huge-selling disc before turning 23, but Alicia Keys demostrates it was no fluke. Her piano and command of the pivotal role it plays in sweet soul music sets her apart. The mix of samples and reality in “You Don’t Know My Name” will impress the crustiest purist. “When You Really Love Someone”’s rhythmic chorus snaps the song along like an elastic band. Keys’ grasp of Beethoven and the beat joined by her fluid vocal range signify her as substance over attitude. —Doug Taylor

Survey Asks

Should council use the yet-to-be-finalized Centre Plan when debating new developments?

  • No, it doesn’t exist yet and is still likely to change
  • Yes, thousands of hours of work and consultation have gone into what’s already assembled
  • Maybe, it really depends on what’s being proposed by the developer
  • I don’t know what the Centre Plan is and do not wish to participate in this poll
