    My top 3 picks would be:

    1. Blue Skies
    2. Rocket
    3. So Serious

    But Reach 4 Me probably has the most potential for the next single.

    I love Reach 4 Me. Perfect sound for them in this day and age.

    I've been skimming through the album and it...ok. Those two dance songs in the middle are a huge no no.

    I love "Reach 4 Me" and "Life". I really hope they promote this a lot.

    Reach 4 Me is really good, it should be the next single.

    So Serious is a gem too.

    I'm not really digging the rest. This album is a huge disappointment.

    I really like the first minute or so of Life. When the dance beat kicks in it becomes excruciating.

    Rocket and Reach 4 Me are by far the best things on here, I think they're the only tracks I'd keep.

    There should have been a non-dubstep version of the song!

    The streaming rules pretty much killed off any chance they had at making the Billboard 200 or even the main R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. :(

    I still have most of the tracks of this album on repeat. Love that Rho finally has a proper album (I try to forget about the boring Soul Flower), many of her ad libs are giving me life.

    It's a great mix of modern takes on classic En Vogue (Blue Skies, Reach 4 Me, So Serious), mixed with modern En Vogue (Life, Love The Way, Oceans Deep, Rocket). I've had to delete Deja Vu as it throws the album off qualitywise, as well as the title track as the vocal effects are unbearable.

    Reach 4 Me or Love The Way should be the next single - the former probably less scary to fans of the traditional En Vogue sound, though I do also love Life. Those three are my top three.

    It's short but strong - overall the 7ish solid tracks make this album have a better hit count than EV3 and of course SoulFlower for me, and probably better than Funky Divas too.

    I pray that the low sales don't deter a video as luxe as Rocket for a second official single.
    This ain't gon be easy

    'Rocket' is the absolute highlight for me. It's such a great track. I like 'Blue Skies' too, could be a future single, but most of the other songs are just average unfortunately. It's a good record overall, but my expectations were much higher.

    Wow... Great performances, thanks for posting!

    I still have this album on heavy rotation. It's a shame the era came to a stand-still as soon as the album came out though.

    I like their sound this time around very much. I also saw them live for the first time in Hamburg, Germany last year. Unfortunately the cancelled their 1997 tour here and never came back till last year. Their new Album is very consistent. I only could go without the EDM tracks in the middle. But "Blue skies", "Reack for me", "Electric Café" and "Rocket" are really great tracks. Rhona sounds great too. It´s a much better effort than "Soulflower". I hope they don´t wait so Long with a follow-up.
    And if I only could
    I'd make a deal with God
    And I'd get him to swap our places

    I liked Soul Flower more. It was quirky and soulful.

    This one just goes nowhere.
