    wow

    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

    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!!!!!!!!!

    Monica is a True Diva

    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''.

    No CD is perfect, but this ones close!

    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.
