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. :(
Never say Never ;-) :-)

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 think her worst look was the CB era. I hated her hair the entire era.

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". :-? :-?

Guilty pleasure masterpiece.

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

"Lead the Way" was wasted and should have been on Butterfly the way it was supposed to. One of her best ballads ever. :cry: :cry:

"Loverboy" is cute but she was so insecure of J.Lo, who wasn't even halfway with her second album, pretty pathetic when you're hailed as the one of the best voices and the best-selling female artist at the time. :oops: :oops: She never really recovered her self-esteem and tried to look like J.Lo since then. :-? :-?
