JDSep 2, 2005Obviously, this album is stereotyped because of the movie with the same name. Yes, the movie wasn't good, but the album sure is. This CD mixed the best of the '80's with the best of the '00's, making it something extremely unique and very interesting. The standout track is 'Never Too Far' as well as 'Lead The Way'. The worst song on this album is 'Loverboy' and the remix to it. Oh, and I didn't like the Eric Benet song either. Point is, this album is her best vocally. Take a listen to 'Lead The Way', she holds a huge long note for a good 15 seconds, probably more. Also, if you can manage to find this over the internet, she recorded a fabulous song entitled 'There For Me'. It can also be found on the Never Too Far/Hero benefit single. This album is underrated and stereotyped and deserved much better. And many forget to mention 'Glitter' is the best selling soundtrack EVER in Japan and also went Platinum in the US.… Full Review »
