I posted this when I had rediscovered 20 Y.O. a bit. :lol:

Out of all her 2000 post albums, it the one the has the songs that I revisit the most. But All For You is better than it.

I can get into this album anymore. It's a bit dull to me. Her worst.

I hate that she barely had any promo shots in the booklet for this just like All for You. :cry: :cry:

To be fair, the album as a whole was rather weak, so it wasn't just the incident but also the lack of quality music. People got bored of her sex songs and this album was full of them, she has yet to come up with another Rhythm Nation or Velvet Rope, though I have to admit that Discipline wasn't that bad actually and already a step in the right direction.

If the Superbowl didn't happen, she would have done a lot better. The singles weren't overly sexual in execution ("All Nite" was very sexual but she wasn't naked in the video), they're all far less visually sexual than any of her other older singles.

This album is a classic, so well crafted and put together. Flows so well and has a real atmosphere in it towards the end.

I think the tracklist is great; like Hype said it's incredibly cohesive and I feel that placing anything else on the album or rearranging it would spoil its fluency. However there are some great outtakes/bonus tracks from the era, to me namely Put Your Hands On (Japanese bonus alongside I'm Here), Could This Be Love and Pops Up. :D

Warmth and Moist have to go ( even though melodically both aren't bad).

"I'm Here" and "Put Your hands On" are brilliant, the same goes for "Could This Be Love". This has her most cohesive moments. :cry: :cry:

When I saw britneys onyx hotel tour the lights went down like the concert was about to start and everyone started screaming and then britney had them play all night don't stop and it was amazing cause it got the whole arena hyped up even before britney took to the stage. I always remember that moment and it made me love the song even more.
Most listened to albums at the moment:
Christina Aguilera - Liberation
Lily Allen - No Shame
Kali Uchis - Isolation

'Moist' is so damn underrated. I'm sick of people hating on it just because it's sexually explicit in the lyrics (which you can't even tell if not for the title). I bet a lot of people saw the title and hated it before even listening to it.

It's gorgeous!

This is a pretty good album but it lacked a strong single. It felt like just a collection of songs on an album without a particular purpose.

I played this today... The entire thing. It's REALLY REALLY good. But some songs like Moist, Like You Don't Love Me and Spending Time With You do nothing for me

Just A Little While is kinda out of place here so I get that they added it as the very last track and put that "Country" interlude before it so it makes at least a little more sense

"All Nite (Don't Stop)" could have been the lead single. She could have also released "My Baby" with Kanye, that's played a lot on the radio here in the Philippines back in 2004. Even if she was blacklisted in the US and most markets, this era feels so much better than the Unbreakable era.

+1 The instrumentation is beautiful!

I agree that All Nite should've been the lead single.

MrD I need you to give Like You Don't Love Me a few more spins to discover its greatness. :wink:
