      I agree it's a very deep and autobiographical song. I feel this song can be interpreted many ways, I read an analysis that said the last verse/bridge is about a failed suicide attempt. :-? :( Her best songwriting is on this album.

        I know, it's almost as if it's two people . She really delivered with this glorious album. I love the smooth production on this album. "Forth Of July" is my favourite. "Babydoll" is good. I don't get the hate for it and I adore "The Roof", "Breakdown", "Close My Eyes" and "My All".

          That song summaries my life. I recently found this gem

          • I wish they all made her old albums released with deluxe bonus material! I'm disappointed they only released a vinyl for this and nothing else. :-? :-?

              Beautiful lyrics in here. In all songs. A true bible for a songwriter.

                She truly was an English teacher with her lyrics in this album
                I learnt so many new words

                  That's one of the reasons I love her lyrics.

                    I wonder what made MC go the “whisper” route when singing on this? I totally took me aback (but not in a bad way). It wasn’t her usual loud vocals and belting notes. It worked so perfectly.

                      Whispering is a hoodrat style of singing. Butterfly was her first hoodrat album...

                            I used to cry to the sound of Whenever You Call and Never Too Far. Thanks for saving me when my X didn't

                            • It's so frustrating that this era started her inevitable miming. How many actual live performances of "My All" do we have? Almost all were the CD version played with a lower key.

                                My All at Divas Live. It's my favorite version. I love the orchestra, so much better than the album version.
                                And I love how it goes into the dance version.
                                Best version I've heard of My All.

                                  Close My Eyes can still get me choked up on full moons. Unfortunately, that does mean I try not to play it because I can relate to it just that much. A beautiful autobiographical piece from MC.

                                  Breakdown does the same too though since it's so smooth I can have it on in the background without attaching the same feeling.

                                    I was wayward child
                                    With the weight of the world
                                    That I held deep inside
                                    Life was a winding road
                                    And I learned many things
                                    Little ones shouldn't know
                                    But I closed my eyes
                                    Steadied my feet on the ground
                                    Raised my head to the sky
                                    And though time's rolled by
                                    Still feel like that child
                                    As I look at the moon
                                    Maybe I grew up
                                    A little too soon
                                    Lada dat tara
                                    Lada dat tara rara
                                    Lada dat tara


                                    But I closed my eyes
                                    Steadied my feet on the ground
                                    Raise my head to the sky
                                    And though time rolls by
                                    Still feel like a child
                                    As I look at the moon
                                    Maybe I grew up
                                    A little too soon
                                    My ultimate MC song. And my fave album of hers period.
                                    This is a true life testament by MC that I can relate to.

                                      • Happy 21st to this gem of an album, currently listening to this right now and it’s aged so well. It’s a true testament to an album that is so cohesive and sounds like it could be released today and still sound current and fresh! This really is her best album as an artist, her magnum opus if you like. It contains my favourite song from her ever ‘The Roof’ pure perfection! Probably my favourite album ever

                                          • I think her whispery choice on this was the same reason she went down that route on CB.
                                            She said she was sick and tired of being locked up, sing-sing and belt out throughout all of her songs.
                                            Just a DEVIANT, PERTURBED, DERANGED, MACABRE, MANIAC, LUNATIC, IRRATIONAL PSYCHO-TO-BE.
