The debate always seems to be whether this or AFY was her best 2000s album. For me, it's definitely AFY, but this is easily second. If I rank the songs from both albums, it's roughly like this...

1. Truth
2. Someone To Call My Lover
3. When We Oooo
4. Son of a Gun

5. Moist
6. China Love
7. All For You
8. Doesn't Really Matter
9. Trust a Try
10. Come On Get Up

11. Strawberry Bounce
12. Feels So Right
13. I Want You
14. Like You Don't Love Me

15. Would You Mind
16. R&B Junkie
17. All Nite

18. Better Days
19. Warmth
20. Truly
21. SloLove
22. Just a Little While
23. Damita Jo
24. My Baby
25. Thinkin Bout My Ex
26. Island Life

27. You Ain't Right
28. Spending Time With You
29. Sexhibition

30. Love Scene (Ooo Baby)

I looove every song from 1-15. From 16-28 are songs I like, but I'm not crazy about them. Only truly dislike JALW and Son Of A Gun.

AFY has more highlights, but Damita Jo is better overall for me.

This + The Velvet Rope are the albums I love the most. Both of them offer an eclectic selection of sounds, rhythm, vibes and emotions that are hard to find in an average album. The Velvet Rope is very personal and Damita Jo is a collection of sounds and styles when she feels real comfortable being in. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this
