This album sucks. The ballads are the worst on this album (which is strange as she is usually known for her ballads).

Top 5:
Faded
Dedicated
You Don't Know What To Do
#Beautiful
Meteorite
Madonna......Rihanna....Beyonce....Michael...Janet....Prince...Mariah...Whitney

What do you guys think of what it's to me the most polarizing song on the album - METEORITE
It's a make or break type of song.

A NO for me. Don't like the sonority and the vocal effects.

Meteorite and Camouflage are overrated af.
Camouflage is a great lullaby, tho. U got trouble falling asleep, u put it on.
Can't stand any of them, tbh.

Faded, #Beautiful & Dedicated <3
Just a DEVIANT, PERTURBED, DERANGED, MACABRE, MANIAC, LUNATIC, IRRATIONAL PSYCHO-TO-BE.

Thirsty would have been a perfect single for her. That and meteorite are still on my play list! I even have a soft spot for supernatural

Still remember the first time I heard "Faded". It was love at first sight. It could be recorded by Mary J. Blige.

I really liked this when it came out but a lot of the songs have quickly become stale. It’s the ballads which have lasted best (Cry., Camouflage)

A lot of her R&B songs could have been recorded by Mary J. She’s one of Kween’s biggest influences. 8-)

^^^ Agreed.

I love Faded, Dedicated, You're Mine, Thirsty, Cry, YDKWTD and Money.

I really like Beautiful, Make It Look Good, Supernatural and One More Try.

Meteorite is OK. Never listen to Camouflage or Heavenly.

IMO...

Cry. - actually a pretty solid ballad 7/10
Faded - perfect song, a highlight in her discography 10/10
Dedicated - cute album track, overrated among Lambs 7/10
#Beautiful - great and very refreshing for Mariah 9/10
Thirsty - a bop 8/10
Make It Look Good - it sounded great on the first listen, but nowadays I can't stand it 4/10
You're Mine (Eternal) - actually a soild album track 6/10
YDKWTD - a bop, but sounds unfinished 7/10
Supernatural - cute tribute to her kids, not cheesy as they tend to be. But I don't really use it 5/10
Meteorite - love it, refreshing to hear a disco-inspired song from Mimi again 9/10
Camouflage - opposite from MILG, this one is a grower 6/10
Money - noise 0/10
One More Try - lifeless 3/10
Heavenly - bleh, it adds nothing to this album or her discography 2/10

These last few songs really drag this album down. Otherwise, it's pretty good. Diverse, creative body of work from a woman who's been doing it for so many years.

I love that song. One of her best in years.
Imagine how the music video could have looked...

Some people believe at the end she's saying
You’re always somewhere but you’re not there for ME. MI-MI
