American Idol Season Three winner Fantasia Barrino comes across like an updated Patti LaBelle: She has a big voice equal parts gurgling and throaty, with a predilection for melodrama to go with it. But on her third album, Fantasia's singing is more contained, which fits the modestly scaled material. Fantasia and her collaborators (including guest Cee Lo Green and co-writer Ne-Yo) bask in stripped-down live arrangements. She's so innately old-school that the throwback 'Collard Greens and Cornbread' — built on a sample of Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell's Motown staple 'Your Precious Love' — sits comfortably on her like a stole.
