I really love Tamias voice but she hasn´t released a stellar album so far. It always sounds like she´s just sticking to what´s already out there and never pushing the boundaries musicwise. It´s a shame. I mean, her songs aren´t bad by any means but she started so promising with the Quincy Jones songs and many of her albums are so inconsistent and filler-heavy. I hope she gets better material. Her last album was better than this one. It was a step in the right direction.

I listened to this recently. She told no lies on "Tell Me How".

Tell Me How is my favorite song on the album, besides Leave It Smokin'.

What about Between Friends? That was a highlight of 2006 and her best album by far!

I think she has a very strong discography actually. Love Life was stellar.

She makes ok albums to me. Nothing that ever amazing tbh.

I love her and that damn voice though. So I take my five or six songs per album and go.

My favs from here are Leave It Smokin' (she needs to do a project with just Salaam Remi), It's Yours, and You Are Loved (Beautiful :cry: ).

I think it´s a good album but lacks individuality. I really wish she would take more risks musically. She doesn´t have to be Janelle Monae or Laura Mvula but with a voice like hers she should have a trademark sound. For me she always sounded like she copied the Mariahs and Tonis. It´s a problem that two of my other fave singers (Shanice and Deborah Cox) shared.

I think More is his best album.

Poetry being her best song ever.

I loved Questions and Smile from that album.

Lost In You is my jam from this album.

I mean I love the song as well, and definitely the highlight of the record. But can't say that it is the song.
