Alicia Keys – Like You’ll Never See Me Again

...fantastically tedious music

She may have Bob Dylan thinking about her but listening to her latest single even such a noted admirer like Dylan mightn’t fail to notice that Alicia Keys is a supremely talented musician making fantastically tedious music.

Like previous release, No One, this is another unenlightening effort with tricksy, but banal lyrics about “the present as a gift” delivered with her practised hush and a pretty, vacant music box melody. As with nearly all her songs there is a climax featuring a gospel choir that dares not outshine the dull star and thus sounding bored in the process.
