Beyonce made a name for herself as a solo artist with heavily produced club hits, so it's refreshing to hear her stunning voice without special effects on I Am ... Yours. The live album and DVD were recorded during a one-off performance in Las Vegas and is divided into two CDS. The first contains mainly acoustic songs from the 'slow' half of her latest album, I Am ... Sasha Fierce. The tracks allow Beyonce to really flex her vocal muscles, and the lack of electronic add-ons prove comparisons to soul's greatest voices are justified. The singer keeps things interesting by adding snippets of other artists' songs. The second disc is a stroll down memory lane, as Beyonce charts her progress in the industry. It starts with the first song she and her former band Destiny's Child performed at an audition - Michael Jackson's I Wanna Be Where You Are. Then there's a 12-minute Destiny's Child medley and the hugely successful solo songs from her first album. The disc hits a high note with the catchy, neo-feminist Single Ladies. The show was filmed in front of a fairly small audience of only 1,500 people, so in watching the DVD you almost feel like you're there.
