    This was the first R&B album I purchased, and I loved every bit of it! I remember back in 1999, they were the only group who I liked who had a different sound as compared to the Backstreet Boys, 'NSYNC, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, etc.

    I think Fanmail is one of the best R&B albums of the 1990s, even better than The Writing's on the Wall (Destiny's Child), Secrets (Toni Braxton), My Way (Usher), and their very own CrazySexyCool!

    All the tracks are amazing! Zero fillers!

    I just can't believe they let this album die after "Unpretty". They could have made big hits out of so many other tracks like "I Miss You So Much," "Dear Lie," "Don't Pull Out on Me Yet" and "Silly Ho".

    Bugger I knew I'd already commented on this album somewhere before, Banzai created one in here before I guess I'll close that one since this is the original..

    I also can't believe that the "No Scrubs" version in the album removed Left Eye's rap! I can still remember being so annoyed by that non-stop chorus (to fade) album version!! :x

    Oops! LOL. Yeah, I guess I didn't look in the Urban forum for a topic about an album that's more than 10 years old haha!

    Anyways - 'Fanmail' = AMAZING.

    This is one of my favourite albums of all time.

    The only song I've never liked is 'My Life'.

    The first TLC album I bought - it really is one of the best R&B albums of all time, a real modern classic.

    Wasn't the rap recorded after the album had already been finalised?

    I'm not sure about that one, but they could have re-released it with Left Eye's rap verse!!!

    I love this album. My fav from TLC. I thought CSC was decent but overrated. My favorites from this would be Miss you much, Dear Lie, I'm so good at being bad and Unpretty.

    You should be locked in a prison for saying CrazySexyCool is overrated.
    I like CSC slightly better but you can play both from beginning to end without skipping songs which is very rare, I guess the interludes can be skipped though. I just recently re-bought Fanmail after losing it and after 11 years it still puts today's music to shame. The 90's will never be topped.

    Agreed with the love on this album - start to finish solid with great songs but I do prefer CrazySexyCool.

    LOL. It's okay, people always think I'm crazy because I tend not to agree with or like the "fan favorite album". I actually cant play CSC all the way like I can Fanmail. The only songs I really liked were Waterfall, Creep, Diggin on me and Kick your game. Wasnt crazy abou the rest of the songs for some reason.

    I wish they'd release videos for 'Silly Ho' and 'I'm Good At Being Bad'. Especially the latter deserved a killer video.

    I've never been a massive TLC fan, but I was in a 90's-nostalgic mood today, so I downloaded the singles off this. I'd totally forgotten how FANTASTIC "Dear Lie" is such a shame it was the "flop" single!

    "Dear Lie" is amazing! They worked well with Babyface! "I Miss You So Much" is another brilliant ballad!

    This album is EVERYTHING, but they messed up on the singles sooooo badly after Unpretty. This could've did CrazySexyCool numbers if Silly Ho (the pure, original started of a bop) and Good At Being Bad were released followed by I Miss You So Much.

    I will never get why Dear Lie was released, especially right after Unpretty.
