More mixed reviews. This one is from Newsday:

The Sasha Fierce songs are more interesting, but not as accomplished. “Single Ladies” and “Radio” are pleasantly danceable, but nowhere near as game-changing as “Crazy in Love” or even “Déj … Vu.” Even on “Sweet Dreams,” which has a silky groove matched with some hip-hop phrasing, she holds back a little. Only on “Diva,” where she explains, “A diva is a female version of a hustla,” does she show the envelope-pushing pop star that we’ve come to expect.

In the end, neither Beyoncé personality gets fully developed here. “I Am … Sasha Fierce” is supposed to be a declaration, but it sounds more like “I Am … Not Sure.”

Does anyone remember when everyone (the critics and haters) were slagging off Deja Vu saying that it was a crap song and now it is all of a sudden ”game-changing”? Right…
