5.0 out of 5 stars A Priceless Slice of R&B History... September 5, 2001
By Knyte
Format:Audio CD
From start to finish, the 'One In A Million' album is a priceless slice of R&B history: the original "Timbaland" sound made its debut (the studder/"kut-kut" beats), and introduced Missy Elliott. I personally regard this album as a "sonic portrait" of a young woman who was confident, gentle, elegant, alluring, mysterious, positive, down-to-earth, and fun.
In the summer/fall of 1996 (when this album was released), R&B and Hip Hop music was becoming very exciting. Dr. Dre had just left Death Row records, and Puffy's Bad Boy records was really heating up. Notable acts and their songs included: Blackstreet's "No Diggity", Keith Sweat's "Twisted", the New Edition "Home Again" reunion, 112's "Only You", and LL Cool J's "Loungin (Who do you luv?)" remix featuring Total.
That summer/fall, we also experienced a major tragedy - the passing of the late, great Tupac Shakur. Now in the summer/fall of 2001, we are dealing with the passing of Aaliyah, and the news hit this reviewer hard. I can remember dancing with friends at house parties back in 1994 to "Back & Forth". I also remember later that summer just loving both versions of "At Your Best", her second single - particularly the mysterious sound and video of the remix...
Flash back to 1996: I was a sophomore at the University Of California at Santa Barbara, and I'm listening to "One In A Million" in my friend's car - and we love it. Aaliyah's new sound was undeniable, and I'll try to describe it...
"Beats 4 Da Streets" is a Missy/Timbaland intro that flows right into "Hot Like Fire" - a delicate and mysterious street cut (later remixed into the fifth U.S. single).

5.0 out of 5 stars Aaliyah's Best CD July 24, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Aalyiah's second CD, "One in a Million," displayed her artistic growth and moved her to the forefront of R&B artists. Whereas her first CD was produced completely by R. Kelly, Aaliyah went for a more varied sound on this CD by using a number of producers, notably Timbaland. In addition, Missy Elliot provides "vocal arrangements" and raps on the CD - it's probably the best incorporation of Missy's sound ever. The CD was one of the first big hits produced by Timbaland with Missy Elliot, and it really signaled a change in the sound of R&B music.

"If Your Girl Only Knew" was the first single (#11 on the Top 100) and features Timbaland rapping. It still sounds really contemporary, even though the sound has been copied by innumerable producers and artists. "One in a Million" is perhaps the best song on the CD, with Missy Elliot on background vocals and a great "chirping cricket" sound effect. Although it wasn't released as a single, it went to #25 on the Top 100 Airplay chart. The biggest song off the CD was the ballad, "The One I Gave My Heart To," which went to #9 and was certified for gold sales.

However, nearly every song on the CD is great - several more songs should have been released, particularly "Hot Like Fire" and the remake of Marvin Gaye's "Got to Give It Up" (with a rap by Slick Rick). "Choosy Lover" is another one of my favorites; a remake of an old Isley Brothers' song that has a great, laid-back groove that flips part-way through to become more urgent. Even though "One in a Million" was released back in 1996, I still really love listening to this CD. A real breakthrough that still sounds great: a real reminder of Aalyiah's tremendous talent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow!! June 8, 2001
Format:Audio CD
This album is great! Like I said earlier, WOW!! This is one of my favorite albums because Aaliyah's unique style combining phat hip hop beats with stellar R and B vocals is what makes me keep listening to this CD. I also recommending her first album, "Age Ain't Nothing But a Number" also. Remember, look out for her new album dropping this summer.
2. Hot Like Fire (featuring Missy Elliott and Timbaland)- A single off the Album. *Okay Song*
3. One In A Million (featuring Missy Elliott)- Album's Title Track. *Great Song*
4. A Girl Like You (featuring Treach of Naughty by Nature)- *Great Song*
5. If Your Girl Only Knew (featuring Missy Elliott and Timbaland)- A single off the album. *Great Song*
6. Choosey Lover (Old School/New School)- A little too long! It should have been separated into two tracks. The old school part is boring, but the new school part's beats are great.
7. Got to Give Up (featuring Slick Rick)- *Annoying Song*
8. 4 Page Letter (featuring Missy Elliott and Timbaland)- A single off the album. *One of my favorite songs off the album!*
9. Everything's Gonna Be Alright (featuring Rodney "Darkchild" Jerkins)- *Okay Song*
10. Giving You More- *Good Song*
11. I Gotcha Back- *Good Song*
12. Never Givin' Up (featuring Tavarius Polk)- *Great Song*
13. Heartbroken (featuring Missy Elliott)- My favorite song off the album! She should have released this.
14. Never Comin' Back- *Great Song*
15. Ladies in Da House (featuring Missy Elliott and Timbaland)- *Good Song*
16. The One I Gave My Heart To- A single off the album. *Great Song*
