Tracks such as "Never No More" and "I Care 4 U" (featuring Missy) are slinky, twisted ballads imbued with film-noir sultriness, as diva Aaliyah steps catlike away from the bubblegum R&B of her contemporaries. If there is ever a way talking about sex in a classy way, Aaliyah does it and does it well. More Than A Woman If Aaliyah was going for high album sales, this should have been the first single. You can see that she really broadened her musical horizons on this album.There's also the obligatory rock track tacked on near the end ("I Can Be"), but even this excels above the standard hip-hop/rock/R&B crossover fare with its Prince-like influences coupled with Aaliyah's own instinct for seduction. I really missed listening to this album which is why I purchased a copy online, since it is unavailable as a digital copy. RIP Aaliyah Let me start this off by saying, Im a huge Aaliyah fan. Every track on the album I fell in love with, but the ones I really enjoyed were "We Need a Resolution", "Loose Rap", "Rock the Boat", "More Than a Woman", "I Care 4 U", "Extra Smooth", "U Got Nerve", "I Refuse", "Those Were the Days" and "What If".I like the more serious tones, like she is hungry for more and wants it.
Aaliyah Seven years after her debut at just 15 years old, Aaliyah assembled a third studio album that was astonishingly mature. I Care 4 UThis is the only song Missy Elliot penned for the album, sadly. I Refuse This is arguably her most crafty song off the album. Aaliyah talks about cutting him and even killing him.
Sadly, her death just a little over a month after its release stilled a promising voice in R&B. This song has a classic feel, like the temptations or some other music band from the 50's. It reminds you of the legend of sleepy hollow (the headless horseman). It's kinda short, but trust me, The epicness makes up for it. The song is not as great as "I Can Be" but I still like it. Try Again Does this song REALLY need a description? This is the song that made me obessesed with Aaliyah. 5/5OVERALL GRADE: 67/75= 89% B This is an amazing album, with only no more than two or three below average tracks.
