Overview

On her second album, The Boy Is Mine, Monica is given a little more room to strut her own stuff. Previously, she was an inexperienced vocalist whose raw talent was sculpted by a bevy of producers. Here, she sticks with Dallas Austin; not only does he give her songs immaculately crafted musical backdrops -- both ballads and up-tempo dance numbers sound irresistible -- but he helps her cultivate her voice so she sounds more mature than her 17 years. That doesn't exactly camouflage the uneven material, but it does make it easy to swallow. She does have a better, more consistent batch of songs here than she did on Miss Thang, and the best songs -- such as the Brandy duet "The Boy Is Mine" or the bouncing "Street Symphony" -- are as good as mainstream urban R&B gets in 1998.

This is a great CD. To make it perfect, i think she should do what the beatles,and many artists have done, and said what she(monica) thinks and did and blah, and that would make it even better.

i really enjoyed this cd. i couldn't stop playing it when it first came out. what really got me was the sting "shape of my heart"-inspired "take him back" and the re*make of "misty blue" this album is wonderful.

Monica did an impressive job on this sophomore set. This album made her a star in the R&B world. The music is great and her voice is defining. The best CD of 1998 so far!!!!!!!!!

I really love this CD. I think that Monica is a very beautiful, unique young lady who has been bless with a great voice and a great personality. I wish her to continue her success and my favorite song of all is '' Angel Of Mine''.
