    You should definitely try to listen to them. Her debut and "Share My World" are more raw and hard sounding while "Mary" is a bit different.

    Does anyone else love the transition between "Fade Away" and "What Love Is" in Growing Pains? Whilst they are both clearly eclipsed by the career highlight that is "Roses", I still think they're really beautiful ballads.

    'Share my world' was my first Mary album. When I saw here singing 'Everything' on TOTP I was hooked.

    No More Drama is probably my favourite Mary album, followed by The Breakthrough and What's The 411?.

    And i definitely agree with y'all about Growing Pains being so underrated.

    Yeah, I love it. As for those 2 songs, not so much. I think they're really generic and boring.

    They are quite generic, but that transition!

    I just think it's nice when artists make the effort to make their albums flow perfectly from start to finish, instead of throwing all kinds of transitions in that don't really work. The U.K. edition had "Nowhere Fast" slotted in randomly and yet they still managed to make it merge well with the two tracks either side of it.

    i kinda like "What Love Is", not much into "Fade Away". This album is f*cking amazing.

    ROSES, HURT AGAIN and COME TO ME are one of Mary's best songs ever recorded. I can't get how on the earth they could've been snubbed and frittered away as singles
    Nowhere Fast should have appeared on every edition of the album either!

    I have all her albums and I think My Life has the most consistently good body of work on it.
    Mary is a highlight of her career too.

    Controversally, I think Share My World is her weakest album.

    My favourites from "Growing Pains" are definitely those three songs as well, tada!

    A lot of the songs aren't particularly outstanding on their own, but the album works perfectly as a whole.

    "I Can Love You" is one of Mary's best singles, IMO.

    I re-listened to Growing Pains recently, and I'd forgotten how good it is. The first half is kind if mediocre, but the second half has some amazing songs (Rose, What Love Is, Fade Away and Come To Me, especially).

    I've downloaded Share My World, and I'm enjoying it quite a lot. I forgot that I knew Love is all we need and Everything too.
