And also, I like Ven Conmigo (Solamente Tu) was better than Come On Over.

It's from the first VHS/DVD she released. It had the videos to Genie In a Bottle and What A Girl Wants on it plus loads of studio footage, performances & behind the scenes stuff.

I actually liked this album at the time. During the whole Britney vs Christina thing (which is so old and I don't wish to start on it again) I just remember thinking it was of better quality then anything that Britney had produced. Before Christina took control of her own record with Stripped, it was clear the songs on this album had been picked to suit her talent. When I first heard I Turn To You I remember getting goosebumps when she hit THAT note. Amazing. It's the not the most amazing of debut albums but was a good starting point.

So Emotional was due to be the final single (I remember an official announcement on her website) but was scrapped at the last minute due to the Ricky Martin duet :x
"Free me, FreE.M.I!" - sing it Joss!!

What amazes me most about this album is how the majority of it does not sound that dated. It has its moments where it sounds its age, but for the most part it's still good. Genie in a Bottle still sounds quite fresh.

Love Will Find a Way is another favorite of mine. It's like her Fantasy.

I liked this album!

It's amazing they released a deluxe remix edition to include the single version of Come on Over Baby!

I still love all the songs from this album, how I wished they made room for Too Beautiful for Words. :(

Just playing "Come On Over (All I Want Is You)" and thinking what an amazing song it is! Definately the best from this album but not remembered as much "Genie In A Bottle" or "What A Girl Wants"... :(

This is a Zero filler album! I love Christina's debut, I even listened to this more than Oops!...I Did It Again back in 2000! 8-) :D

Great debut, I loved her tone here, I miss her old style of singing. It was very audience friendly.

Yes I agree! It should have been the final single of the era.
