Self-confidence is a recurring theme on Let Freedom Reign, the singer?s follow-up to chart-topper Epiphany. ”I?m a star,” Michele announces on one track, only to add, ”I?m a beautiful queen,” ”I?m so cool” and ”I?m still a winner” on three other tunes. We don?t blame her. Her assured performances on ? this disc — whose crisp, understated backdrops leave her timelessly sleek voice with room to shine — give her plenty to be proud of. B+
