I Wish You Well is perfection.

I need a Gospel EP from her.

Though she overanalyzed recreating The Emancipation of Mimi, this is still a great follow-up. Such a shame her vocals filed a leave of absence here. :cry: :cry:

One of the most genius album titles ever.

I can’t believe this is 10 :cry: :cry: :cry: Omg.

If handled correctly this could have been another huge era. The album has bop after bop after bop after bop after bop.... and y’all chose Bye Bye. :roll: Girl. Her voice hasn’t sounded as strong since these sessions and she wasn’t trying to prove she could still sing. Issa classic

This > every album of hers since

She thinks Migrate should've been a single:

Great album!
They messed up the single releases on this one big time.

It's my least fave album of hers from the 00s. It sounds a bit dated now, but the ballads and midtempos are still amazing.

Girl...
The ballads are like the worst ones she's ever recorded :lol:
Anyway, it's one of my least albums by her as well.
But Migrate, TMB & Side effects are still DA BOMB.

Sis, that tragic ratchet ass cover was the second-worst thing about the whole project :lol: (aside from the single choices).

It's such a clever song. I like the intricacies and references in the lyrics. There's a lot of depth. Same thing with For The Record.

I can’t believe it’s been 10 years already. This album still sounds fresh. She should have gotten 8 number ones from this album. The singles were just fine but the era was really mishandled. Migrate, ITC, Side Effects and For the Record should have been singles too.

My ideal singles:
Touch My Body (lead single/ Feb. 2008)
Migrate (2nd single/ Apr. 2008)
I’m That Chick / I’ll Be Lovin’ U Long Time / Cruise Control (summer 2008)
Side Effects / For The Record (September 2008)
I Stay In Love (last single / December 2008)

But I understand everything happened for a reason, still I just couldn’t avoid wishing it was handled better and had the success it deserved.
