I agree. Like I said, it's dated but in the most fantastic way. I love the 90s sound it captured.GetBack wrote:Age Ain't Nothing but a Number is so underrated. I understood why she had to move on from that record quickly but it's such an amazing album!
AANBAN does have some fillers yes, but also some total gems, which will be higher up on my countdown . I think 'Brandy' and 'Miss Thang' have an equal amount of filler tbh, so I can't decide which is stronger. I think it's between AANBAN and Miss Thang for me, but maybe Aaliyah's wins it for me, because it has that quintessential 90s sound which still sounds cool today.Gravity wrote:Street Thing is one of the highlights on AANBAN for me.
I'm Down & I'm So Into You are both fillers. That album has way too many fillers IMO. Brandy and Monica's debuts were much stronger.
I Can Be is one of my favorite Aaliyah songs. The rock-ish sound, the lyrics that perfectly capture emotions of a side chick >>>>>>>
I'm a bit sad Giving You More got snubbed it's a great song.

I think WNAR was too bold at the time, and because Aaliyah wasn't a huge star yet, it didn't pay off. Maybe she should have played it safe for the lead single.GetBack wrote:I love "We Need a Resolution". It's sad that it didn't click with the public. It's just so sad that it was her last single which she was able to promote.
Sounds like we are in agreement on all of these. '4 Page Letter' can be amazing if I'm in the mood to listen to it, but boring at other times. I also think it's another one which needs to be quite loud to appreciate - which is unusual for a slow jam.Gravity wrote:4 Page Letter was a bit boring to me but then one day it just clicked with me. It's a really cool smooth R&B jam.
What If is good but I prefer I Can Be. Her worst 'rock' song is Messed Up.
All I Need is cute but I don't listen to it much.
Got To give It Up is alright.
Even though a lot of 'Aaliyah' songs have fallen quite early, I can reveal that all songs from the album appear on my countdown, unlike the other 2 albums (spoiler!)Benjamin wrote:Good start!
'It's Whatever', 'I Refuse' and 'I Can Be' would be much higher on my countdown. Same for 'We Need A Resolution' and "What if'. The entire 'Aaliyah' album is amazing, deserves so much more.
I have no idea what the lyrics are about tbh. My 13 year old self didn't pay attention to them, just to the beatsGravity wrote:I don't like Extra Smooth. The instrumental is cool but i don't like the lyrics and the overall vibe of the song. It's the 2nd weakest song on The Red Album for me, after Messed Up.
