  • Summary: The third album for the dancer-turned-diva includes contributions from Sean Paul and Missy Elliott and contains a cover of Tom Petty's "Free Fallin'."

  1. Positive: 5 out of 9
  2. Negative: 0 out of 9
  1. The constant changes of direction can be a little jarring on the first couple plays, but they eventually become one of the album's charms.
  2. Mya's third album should have no problem hanging with the chart-topping competition, seeing how it's stacked with hit after steamy hit.
  3. Whatever her emotion, the eclectic Mood Ring effectively captures the evolving sensibilities of this rising star.
  4. At best, Moodring exhibits some minor genre dabbling, but truthfully, Mya's source material hasn't broadened much.

    Mya gets lost on Moodring. [#18, p.128]
  6. 60
    Though she doesn't add any real depth to her artistic sack, she captivates by revealing another stage in her development--as a woman. [Aug 2003, p.148]
  7. On previous outings, with tighter pop sensibility intact, I never noticed how thin Mya's voice sounds. But with an album constantly swishing in languid R&B balladry it sounds like a sugar wafer caught in a lawnmower blade.
