Share My World [Japan Bonus Track]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Alex Henderson
The hype that surrounded Mary J. Blige in the beginning was simply ridiculous. When What's the 411? was released in 1992, she was exalted as "the new Chaka Khan"-- a definite exaggeration, considering how uneven that debut album was. But Blige did show promise, and by the time she recorded her third album, Share My World, she had developed into a fairly convincing soul/urban singer. Her strongest and most confident effort up to that point, Share had much more character, personality and honesty than most of the assembly-line fare dominating urban radio in 1997.

For all their slickness, emotive cuts like "Get to Know You Better," "Love Is All We Need" and "Keep Your Head" left no doubt that Blige was indeed a singer of depth and substance. Although high-tech, the production of everyone from R. Kelly with whom she duets on the inviting "It's On" and Babyface to Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis doesn't come across as forced or robotic, but in fact, is impressively organic. With Share My Love, Blige definitely arrived. [Share My World is also available in an import release.]
