Don't actually consider this one of her best records and it's a little bit overrated among fans, tbh.
BUT this gots some quality tracks like Faded, Dedicated & #Beautiful.

It was shaping up to be a solid piece of work but ended up being a mess w/Money, Heavenly, One more try...

I think some of the songs have aged amazingly. Like Beautiful and Meteorite. Some have aged awfully. The likes of you're mine just sounds soooo dated now.

This.
I actually would agree. I don't see it as a high point in her career. It's not the strongest album. However some songs like #beautiful are some of her best songs. Such a shame it's on that album

Some friends and I were having a Mariah jam session and with this album, unlike the others, we talked more about what she must have been going through and certain lines of certain songs but never actually got to playing anything from this except Meteorite and #Beautiful - the exact two songs BehindBreakaway mentioned.

I’m not sure the album itself aged poorly but I can definitely agree that it’s harder to listen to any one individual track and appreciate it without the accompanying other songs on the album. It’s like you need the entire story to appreciate that one chapter. Same with Memoirs.

I dont get that with her other albums.

Word. Faded always was - and still is - one of my favourites; not just from this album but of her catalogue in general.

I always loved the urban tracks... Dedicated and Money are jams. YDKWTD is pretty classic MC for me. And unpopular opinion but I always really loved You're Mine (Eternal). It may not be overly original but I love Darkchild's dream-like backdrop and Mariah's almost forlorn vocals.

You're Mine would've slayed if she sang it in this fashion... The production on both songs is kinda similar
