But that's all too often the fate of the best new artist, whose tiny gramophone statue comes with a lot of bad karma.

 Mike's Comment of the Week - WIN A PRIZE, LOSE A PRIZE, KEEP A PRIZE
In January, 1990, the Grammy award for best new artist was given to the pop group Milli Vanilli, fronted by the photogenic duo of Rob Pilatus and Fabrice Morvan.
Thus, the sacred name of Grammy was preserved, and only those artists with true talent would be allowed to record, for evermore.
Thus, we are to conclude that a harmless musical hoax, and the invention of a composite character cry out to Heaven for justice, while the machinations of a vile, despicable degenerate, propping up one of the most evil men in all of human history are to be rationalized, and are better off being simply forgotten.

This was a problem on Furtado's nearly simultaneously released Folklore, but Keys trumps her peer in one key way musically, this is a seamless piece of work, a sultry slow groove that emphasizes her breathy, seductive voice and lush soulfulness.
What the album lacks are songs as immediate as "Fallin'" or as compelling as "A Woman's Worth," and that, combined with her insular outlook, is where Diary comes up short and reveals that it is indeed merely a second album.
Such is the problem of arriving with a debut as fully formed as Songs in A Minor at such a young age listeners tend to expect more from the sequel, forgetting that this an artist still in her formative stages.
