I used to think Beyonce was quite an intelligent lady, after listening to this album I was left with strong doubts. The album is overall terrible and often quite stupid and dull.

From the hypocritical moralist Nasty Girl to the shouty title track to the maudlin spiritual crap of Gospel Medley and finishing with the circle jerk of Outro (DC-3) Thank You, the album is just painful to listen to.

In fact there are only two songs which are not terrible, Independent Women part 1 and Bootylicious and even then...

1. Bootylicious

I prefer Keane's cover of Bootylicious, myself.
