Alicia Key's -"Songs I A Minor"- it's one of those albums you can listen to without skipping any tracks, it's real good. Very impressive work, seeing as how she writes it, sings it, and plays it.
I like Jewel's old albums, too (not 0304 or w/e). But, now she's crossed over to the teeny-boppers.
Kelly Clarkson- Thankful- Seeing as she had little time and experience to do it, it's pretty good. As she grows as an artist, they'll get better.
