Format: Audio CD
I own "My Life" in three formats: 1) LP 2) CD 3) Digital. It was in the middle of the brilliant trilogy of "What's the 411," "My Life," and "Share My World" when my world was completely shaken. "My Life" will probably always be my favorite MJB album but I think it's so brave of her to look at such an iconic album in the face and not be afraid of it. Rather, she attempts to extend or revisit her perspectives from 17 years ago. "My Life" is an undeniable classic but Mary asks: "where are we now?"

She ponders this in the introduction to "My Life II...The Journey Continues (Act I)" when she says that "it's not a competitor, it's a sequel." So she is letting us know that this album has a fresh perspective but retains the genuine aspects of "My Life" that we love so much.

I'm currently on my third spin of the album and I love it so much. Since the "Mary" album, I've felt as if I've only listened to Mary casually. I truly don't think this has anything to do with Mary but, rather, the space I've found myself in at any particular time.

I loved "In the Meantime" from "No More Drama." I loved "Fade Away" and "Smoke" from "Growing Pains." & when I put on "My Life II" today, I rediscovered my love for this legend all over again.

The first half of the album is very good--minus the remake of "Ain't Nobody"-my least favorite song on the album--but trust me, the second half is where you want to be.

"Don't Mind," "No Condition," "Mr. Wrong," "Love of a Woman," "Empty Prayers," and "Need Someone" are stellar tracks.

This is the Mary J. Bilge that I know & love. & this has nothing to do with the tension between "happy" and "sad" Mary. It has everything to do with the music and she simply delivers on the music with this album, which is all that has ever mattered. Welcome back Legendary one.

I have a feeling that one day I will, too, own "My Life II" in multiple formats.

Enjoy fans.

This hit iTunes 12am this morning. Smooth, sexy, hard, soulful, beautiful. That's how I would describe this cd. Mary J brings yet another winning cd. Thanks for including The Living Proof, an anthem for the struggle. The guest list is perfect also. Wonderful early Christmas present from Mrs. MJ. Thank you for answering the phone Mary, MMMMaaaarrryyyy!

From the first time I heard her music,I have to admit that one key to Mary J Blige's entire career path has been uneveness. Capable of the some of the most powerful musical ideas and lyrical observations of her time one minute,than complacent to the point of resting on her laurels the next. Than again many of her musical predecessors from Aretha Franklin and Prince have careers seemingly built on inconsistency. It may in fact be at the very heart of baring ones soul in music. It is sad however Mary J finds herself in a music world in the grip of a survival crisis I've never witnessed before in my lifetime. The debate does on whether the CD format will survive over MP3's,or if soul and funk has slowly become extinct due in part to it's more posturing child hip-hop. All of these things probably factored into Mary's sequel to her career defining sophomore album. It was exciting to me when I learned she was doing this for her next album. My expectations weren't even all that way,so long as Mary lives up to herself and her artistry. Honestly,the results bare for more scrutiny than one might hope.

One of the main things about this album,after the inspiring intro featuring a conversation between Mary and Sean Combs is that the next three cuts feature....surprise surprise:guest rappers. And very cliched ones even for that. And again the rapping adds nothing to the songs. All it does is show what a low state hip-hop has come to in this day and age. No real emotional or reflective swells. Just shameless,thoughtless posturing designed to get attention and sales. And when Mary J's typically powerful voice comes in on even the fairly grooving "Next Level",you wonder why she needed Busta Rhymes there in the first place.

Mary OD'D! Yes, people are complaining about it not being like "My Life", trying to keep Mary in a box. If you open your mind you will hear Mary telling Puffy this cd is not a competitor against "My Life" but, a sequel to it. It's clear that Mary has grown in so many ways on this album. Each track is so individualized. The first time I played it I said, "DAMN, EVERY SONG IS HOT" each telling it's own story. And, THE BEATS, OMG! I love it. If you don't buy this cd now you're only gonna kick yourself later. This ISH is HOT! Instrumentally, rhythmically and most of all LYRICALLY! That's why I don't mind saying Mary, I love you!!
