This is actually a lot stronger than Rainbow and Charmbracelet. "Never Too Far" and "Lead the Way" are very underrated, she served her best vocal performances of the 2000s in those two songs. I love it more than The Emancipation of Mimi these days.

She only performed it once - at Kosovo, as far as I know. Shame she'll never perform it live to a proper audience. :(

Here is my rating:

01- Loverboy (remix) 6/10 ( loads of rap but flows well )
02- Lead the way 9/10
03- if we 8/10
04- Didn't Mean to Turn You On 9/10 ( even though it's a cover it's so funky and 80's)
05- Don't stop 8/10
06- All my life 7/10
07-Reflections 7/10
08- Last Night a DJ Saved My Life 6/10 ( Love the beginning but drags a lot)
09- Want you 3/10 ( hate her vocals and the song)
10- Never too far 10/10 ( best ballad on the album, her voice is so powerful on this one)
11- Twister 5/10 ( petals part 2)
12. - Loverboy 7/10 ( a bit better than the remix cameo's part >>>> all those rappers)

1. Loverboy (Remix)- 7/10 - I still think this song sounds like 2 different songs played at the same time. One of the weirdest songs ever created but I low key like it.
2. Lead the Way- 10/10 - Easily one of the standouts. Great vocals and lyrics.
3. If We- 8/10 - One of my early faves on the album, and it still is.
4. Didn't Mean to Turn You On- 4/10 - There's so much going on in the song and it's annoyingly noisy :lol:
5. Don't Stop (Funkin' 4 Jamaica)- 8/10 - I've always liked it and she looks great on the video. One of my fave mv's from her.
6. All My Life- 8/10 - This wouldn't sound out of place on Music Box IMO if the vocals were recorded in '93. I really like it.
7. Reflections (Care Enough)- 7/10 I kinda like it, but pretty overrated.
8. Last Night A DJ Saved My Life- 6/10 - Fine, but nothing to write home about really.
9. Want You- 3/10 - I've always seen it as the only filler of the album. Never liked it.
10. Never Too Far- 10/10 - Classic Mariah.
11. Twister- 8/10 - Always loved the story behind it.
12. Loverboy- 7/10 Nothing very different from the remix. Should be the first track IMO.

I like the album it's quite underrated, except Loverboy I hate how she looked this era one of her worst ever. ( not counting nowadays)

I wouldn't say this :lol: it's actually a bit messy and the song didn't turn out the way Mariah wanted, but ended being a cult song for fans 8-)

"Loverboy" used to be one of my favorites ever but it's really bad! It was such a lazy and cheaper version of "Heartbreaker". :-? :-?

Lyrics are cringe-worthy too. Talkin' bout ecstasy and "come on and do me" :lol:
