She was pretty huge in Canada,US,and Korea(Where she had the biggest pop album there for a pop artist from 99' till now 300,000) outside of these 3 markets she was big but mostly a singles artist. Everyone knew who she was back then cause of all the teen pop press thing that was huge. So yeah she was big but her biggest markets were those 3. Britney wasnt that big either in the UK i mean her debut only sold 1 million in the UK, i think her debut single overshadowed her album there, the same with Christina.

No way! ...BOMT is way better IMO.

I love Christina, but this album is really boring. It has a couple of good tracks (basically the singles), but it's all really bland and samey to me.

I've listened this album for the first time just a week ago and wasn't impressed at all.
Xtina is begginning from the Stripped era to me.
Actually, she did some great Spanish recordings for her album previously

I really like this album :D I always think she released another album between this and Stripped because she changed so much over those few years :o

I love the video for 'I Turn To You', but I found this alternate version. It's basically Christina in the studio and some old footage. Where's this from? I've never seen it before!

that's probably just a promo video, before they shot the official one. but I remember reading about the song having two videos but I've never got the chance to see it so thanks! :D

the song never gets old for me, I love the (Thunderpuss Remix) from the deluxe edition of the album too.

Does anyone remember who covered "Genie In A Bottle" ?!

I only saw it once on tv, the girl singing it with a guitar.. I think it was a uk top 20 show.

I'm not surprised this is her biggest selling album, her peaks for the singles in the US were incredible:

1999 Genie In A Bottle #1
2000 What A Girl Wants #1
2000 I Turn To You #3
2000 Come On Over #1

Amazing songs, great production, Grammy award, amazing voice, excellent performances!!!
It's in no way a bad album!! I love this album so badly! 8-) 8-)

"Obvious" and "Blessed" are great!!!

Thanks Ben! I love their version I think they did a great job, not as good as the original but still.

I'm into "Don't Make Me Love You" these days, it was on the deulxe edition and an early version was a b-side on the Genie single.

The one used for the video, what version is that? And I notice that she's ridiculously thin at this era. :o

The radio edit + the video version are the same lol.

She was very over-worked and thin at this point of promo.. its when she was everywhere.
