    I feel like the songs here are the ones that failed to make it into Daydream, with the exception of My All and Honey. I remember listening to it for the first time and had that feeling it didn’t sound “fresh”. Her name sold it IMO.

    "The Beautiful Ones" just might be her finest cover.

    totally yes.. also I dont think "my all" moved sales so much ... and I didnt understand, why 5th single released as official, others were promo

    I also gave Fourth of July some love yesterday - underrated song.

    I bought three albums in one go as part of my first ever CD purchase. This, Will Smith GJWI and Backstreets Back.

    One of the greatest records of all time. Vocally, lyrically, sonically, visually...
    The vibe and the feeling of this album is still unparalleled.

    I did this in photoshop for "The Butterfly Room" fan board back then... when I was 16... so 14 years ago.

    It honestly took me years to get into The Roof. I never got what everyone saw in it. More recently though I can see why it’s a vibe. I love when she writes songs where the lyrics are telling a story.

    Breakdown on the other hand was instant and relatable to me. I cried many nights to it.

    Imagine, anyone, she would do an Unplugged 2.0 and have the beautiful piano version of Close my Eyes in the setlist.. I would scream, faint and die.

    I'd be so here for a Butterfly medley and a TEOM medley, damn, girl.

    I suggest it should be like this for Butterfly medley:

    1. The Roof (Back in Time)
    2. Close My Eyes
    3. Breakdown
    4. Whenever You Call

    Of course, "Honey" and "My All" should be on the main set list.

    Someone said at one of her Caution Tour dates that she suggested having a show or something dedicated to individual albums. I think it was TEOM though.

    It would be a nice addition to the setlist for a night or two
