The jumpy, Timbaland-esque beats that kickstart the title track of Fanmail, TLC's long-awaited follow-up to 1994's zillion-selling CrazySexyCool, are a lot more impressively modern than the "computerized" voices that introduce several cuts. Most of the album's production is similarly up to date, displaying the trio's smoldering style to good effect. A few of these songs ("Silly Ho," "No Scrubs," "Unpretty") verge on the anthemic, while Babyface-helmed ballads such as "I Miss You So Much" and "Dear Lie" feel like they're running on automatic pilot. For the most part, though, Fanmail earns its status as a multiplatinum sure thing. --Rickey Wright

The songs were good.

It was the first TLC album since 1994's CRAZYSEXYCOOL and in my opinion, it's the best.

With great beats and lyrics they are truly great talents.

Wow! I was really impressed! I brought this cd because I liked "No Scrubs" and I LOVED "Unpretty." What I love most about this cd is the variety of songs. From beautiful, and slow ballads like "Dear Lie" and "I Miss you So much" to edgy and sharper tunes like "I'm Good at Being Bad" and "Shout," TLC really puts all emotion into it. As for the "explicit content," if you're not offended by somewhat graphic sexual terms and descriptions, then you can ignore it.

Anyone that has followed TLC over their three albums knows that these women are talented. On their first album they were addressing younger crowds. "Ain't Too Proud To Beg", "What About Your Friends" and "Baby, Baby, Baby" were examples of this. On "CrazySexyCool" they were a little older and the music and lyrics symbolized that. On, "Fanmail" TLC has grown up all around. Personally, Spiritually, Lyrically and Musically. "Fanmail" sounds like CrazySexyCool 2000 which isn't bad at all because Dallas Austin does his job very well, with Babyface and others lending an assist every now and then. The music, lyrics and the overall album are on a different level this time around. The clear cut examples of this are "Silly Ho", "If They Knew",which is the best song, "I Miss You So Much, "Lovesick", and the song even your 45 year old mother has heard on the radio "No Scrubs". Many people thought TLC couldn't do it again and whether the group stays together or not is not even the point. If female r&b groups want to learn how to make an album, pick up "CrazySexyCool" and "Fanmail" and get a pen, a pad , and a 20 oz Lipton Brisk Iced Tea and take notes, you'll be there for a while. This is a great album.

TLC is a group with a lot of experience in the music industry, and this acquired maturity shines on their third album, "Fanmail". It's their new and twisted style of hip-hop R&B that clearly shows a lot of effort in the strong, smooth musical and lyrical outcome. Many of the songs are fast-paced, fun songs, but TLC also mellows out to put their heart into a few slower ones too, and a few of the songs have an electronically-altered feel. All around it makes for a great mix, and the best TLC album yet. I've had this CD over a year and it still hasn't grown old, and I doubt it'll start anytime soon. Here's a quick summary of each song:
1. Fanmail: What the CD's all about - the fans; pretty good song, a little slow in the beginning (starts off as an intro) but gets a little more into it throughout - 8.5/10
2. The Vic-E Interpretation (Interlude): Not much to say cuz it's just an interlude (extremely short too); some culture
3. Silly Ho: This song ROCKS!! expresses TLC real strength in bounce-beats and cool lyrics. Proves that TLC are NOT like today's typical music "silly ho", they just know their stuff - 10/10
4. Whispering Playa (Interlude): another interlude, kinda funny
5. No Scrubs: You've all heard this song, so you know what I'm talkin' about. It's real, out there, and the message comes across with the kind of crisp clarity that only TLC can master on these subjects - 10/10
6. I'm Good At Being Bad: Another one of the real highlights on this album. TLC keeps it tight especially with Left Eye's rap, good alternating soft/loud. Great song to be the longest on the CD - 10/10
7. If They Knew: Continuing the streak of faster songs, this song also has a great beat and cool lyrics, but without as much in-your-face; still great - 9.5/10

I unfortunately didn't truly learn to appreciate the gals of TLC until after after Left Eye's death and their 3D album. TLC were a truly unique group and are sorely missed.
"Fanmail" was their third album and only album to hit #1 where it stayed for an impressive five weeks. It gave them two #1 singles as well. "No Scrubs" came out at a time when the Backstreet Boys, Britney Spears, and all their imitators were dominating the charts and was a truly unique single to be heard amongst all of this. It also introduced the term "scrub" into white America's conciousness. "Unpretty" was the other monster hit with a great message. "Silly Ho" was the initial first single and only received lukewarm attention until "No Scrubs" burst onto radio. It's still a great song though and sticks out. "Fanmail" is a unique song and a great album opener. "Dear Lie" was the fourth single and a moderate radio hit. It's a ballad with a definite TLC twist. My favorite track is probably "I Miss You So Much." This song helps to show what made TLC so great. They can pull off gorgeous ballads like this and then get down, dirty, and sassy on songs like "I'm Good At Being Bad." Very cool.
This along with any TLC album is highly recommended. I'd love to see a TLC "Greatest Hits" album in the future. They sure had their share.

Overall, I think Fan Mail's a great album and decade-ender, but nothing can top CrazySexyCool. Well, I know this review is going to get many anti-helpful votes, but I feel this needs to be addressed. I am very shocked and saddened by the loss of the wonderful Lisa "Left Eye" Nicole Lopes, as many people are. She was as close as you could get to perfect: Great personality, high intelligence, cute looks, and outstanding multi-talent. She was a wonderful and kind person who was missunderstood because of her complexity. She is someone who I'd love to meet and person. I know that the pain is not brought upon her who is in a better place, but the fans and family she left behind. I am still in shock and tears. She was only 30, and could have had so much more in store for us adding to what she's accomplished during her life and her 10-year career. She was a great role-model who sent out positive messages. No one will replace her, but I hope more people begin to be more like her. I will miss her dearly. OK, I have plenty more to say but I don't feel comfortable taking up any more room on this page. I do have one of many questions for Tionne and Rozonda- are you going to continue as a duo or are you going to disband like Nirvana did? Well, I definitally know replacing is NOT an option.
I am also saddened and frustruated by all of the deaths of great musicians over the past year who also happen to be favorites of mine. Luv ya, Lisa! Peace out to George Harrison, Aaliyah, Layne Staley and all the others as well.
