    [ad_1] Maybe the best thing about American Idol is that, once it launches its stars, it sets them free. Fantasia, the self-titled sophomore set by the up-from-the-bootstraps 2004 series winner, sends out song after song that Simon would recoil over and great swaths of America would likely vote down in a heartbeat. Ripped from real life, these tracks are produced with both gumption and vision–a combination potent enough to smoke you out of your seat (see “Two Weeks Notice” and “Bore Me”) and settle you back into it gently (“When I See U,” “Surround U,” “Bump What Ya Friends Say”). Unlike Free Yourself, Fantasia’s first outing and one that wanted to work the crowd that crowned her an Idol, Fantasia’s focus is de facto, de-poppified R&B–the unpretty kind. Barrino (Fantasia’s last name, for those who’ve forgotten) brings it with a glimmering, gut-busting voice that suggests she’s never seen a teleprompter before; she keeps it about as real as real gets. “Uneligible” and the Mary J. Blige-reminiscent “I Feel Beautiful” are slow burners–they linger–but by far the hottest track here is “Hood Boy.” With its skittering Supremes sample and Big Boi rap, it does for refried ’70s soul what Fantasia did for Idol: it makes you want to pay attention. –Tammy La Gorce
