    And yes, Try Again was a big hit here.

    She had two top tens over there: this and Are You That Somebody? Yet “More Than A Woman” is better than both of those combined.

    Tho it gave her a much deserved k #1.

But from Post to the latest one it's one production triumph after another. The only clear misstep is Volta though. That one is a bit all over the place.
    I was on board with Bjork up to Medulla, after that apart from a track here and there she kinda lost me.

    So basically, you have made yourself skippable. Just like GOAT.

    Aaliyah always seemed to me one of the most stylish, perfect-image, and elegant music stars. She always had her hair and make up perfect and her fashion style was ahead of time, at some points she would dress for interviews, photoshoots or appearances with fashion that could fit today.

    All that good taste she had of course reflected on the style of her music (which in many ocassions was futuristic and ahead of time), but honestly it was her 3rd studio self-titled album (the last one and final she recorded before her death) that IMO was something truly inmaculate. It's scary how stunning it is.

    I was late to the Aaliyah game, I always dismissed her without even hearing a single album of hers. Rediscovered her amazing singles a couple of years ago and then decided to give her "Aaliyah" album a go. She's really good. I love her vocals a lot, very playful and really mashing with the production. Even Mariah took some cues from her.

    “Aaliyah” (2001) gotta be one of the greatest commercial / mainstream female albums I’ve ever heard. This coming from a Rock fan who was never a big fan of R&B music yet this mesmerized me in a way most female albums could never do. It’s simply PERFECT, so stylish, innovative, elegant, creative, even artistic.

    This album experiments with a bunch of music genres even Rock and Industrial Rock music towards the end.

    This is IMO better than any Beyoncé, Britney, Xtina, Rihanna, Gaga, P!nk, Janet, Mariah and Celine album and better than a lot of Madonna albums . Take this with no offense as I said “In my opinion”.

    The thought and fact that this came out in 2001 and was so ahead of it’s time is unreal and always gives me the chills and the thrill, it’s even scary.
    OMG @ you stanning for a hood classik.

    ... Man it's just insane how good it is.

    Yeah, this song was my way in to these albums. Her explanation, exactly what you just said, makes so much sense. The long drawn out strings as if they're just interludes of inner pain contrasting the increasingly intense verses. It's so good.
