I've been collecting vinyl since 2003 (first albums were The Monkees 'Headquarters' and 'Birds & Bees') and CDs since I was old enough to begin appreciating music right around the turn of the millennium.

My favorite types of music are early 00s pop, 60s pop and Latin pop, as well as female vocalists in pretty much any genre. My top artists are Selena, The Monkees, Christina Aguilera, Britney Spears, Cher, Carpenters, Shakira.

I'm not very picky about pressings or editions, but if there are bonus tracks to be had I'm all over it!

I primarily shop in the Minneapolis / St. Paul area of Minnesota USA and love to stop into shops as I travel!

I thought I had heard somewhere that some copies come out defective while manufacturing and that is how we get larger numbers that was is said to be issued? I could be wrong and they shouldn't count those that don't even leave the plant. But a point... See full review

Wow, it's disappointing to see these bad reviews - this pressing looks awesome anyway!

This is a 5 star dance pop album, no doubt. It's so good!!! Steps really went for it on this one, so glad they came back better than ever!

I have this ordered to come with my copy of the WTFH Pt 2 album. Can't wait!!! One of my favorite albums of 2020.

My only complaint about this release is the mirror-like cover. Have to clean it carefully of fingerprints after every use! However, I was so happy when this was announced and stopped everything to preorder. Such a great compilation from SUCH a great... See full review

I've been collecting for 20 years and didn't know that - not everyone is so attuned to the sound quality enough to know those nuances and details. It's plain annoying to get up and flip/switch the record every 10 minutes. But this is good to learn!... See full review

I missed giving this album a chance when it first came out, picked it up sealed for 2.99 the other day and I'm so glad I did! This is a really awesome album, great piece of work!

This album is so underrated - Micky shines on this release.

I'm no audiophile expert and this is my first glow in the dark record - but I love it! My copy is ever so slightly warped but the sound is smooth and clear and rather void of surface noise. Glad to have it in my collection!

I dare say this is everything I've ever wanted from a Demi album. I love how she relaxed the Big Voice a little bit and gave us some smooth pop. It's honest, funky, engaging - the 19 (21 on this version) tracks honestly fly by and the album is over... See full review

This has to be my copy (disc color, Mastering SID Code: IFPI L239, etc) but it does have the extended track previewing the Backstreet Boys' new album.

Did anyone else have their copy have some black swirls from manufacturing error? Bought it when it was first released for $40-45 or so and ended up getting fully refunded when I asked if it was meant to have those black swirls.

Mildly upsetting that the original tracklist was rearranged (and I believe the way it's listed on the back sleeve is inaccurate to the record!). However, this is a beautiful pressing and I'm loving the bonus tracks, the gatefold, the photos. It's... See full review

The music itself is very generic and nothing groundbreaking is happening here, however from Selena it is some fun exploration and a good addition to her discography!

Everything on my pressing is the same (RCA logo on the cover, same label) however the matrix / runout is ONE number off.
Side 1: G2 PP1282-6S
Side 2: G 2PP-1283-15S
Not sure if the spacing matters but that is how it looks on the pressing. Any insight... See full review

SUCH a good album! This has always been the best of the original trilogy of Destiny's Child solo albums, in my opinion. Definitely worth having in your collection.

Very underrated album! Victoria has a surprisingly lovely voice that didn't get enough attention in the Spice Girls. This album is a great showcase for her vocals, while not powerful they are very smooth and sweet. Not to mention to early 2000s pop flavour. See full review

Unless I got an off copy, these are not club remixes. Both sides are the album versions, although Dirty Dirty is instrumental on side A and acapella on side B as it says, the rest of definitely just the album versions.
I really love both of these... See full review

For an album produced to fail as a tax write off, it not too bad! I can't wait to play this next time my mother-in-law, whose life revolves around the Monkees even more than mine, is over and see how long it takes for her to recognize the songs!

Really like the packaging on this release! Comes in a nice "flip open" cardboard box, with the 2 CD's in their own paper sleeves. Not to mention the album is really fantastic.
