  1. The original Colby O'Donnis

    Actually, maybe they're the same person... Colby O'Donnis Phillip.

  2. The Jessica/Nick duet isn't as bad as it looks on paper, but it's not that great either.

    That aside, for some reason I thought they were still a couple.
  3. That Don Philip X-Factor clip is still cringe af to watch. I had to take a break part way through the video, I couldn't handle it dddd
  4. Both in one fell swoop! Ha, well, I'm glad I could make them hang on a little longer. Two absolute guilty pleasures for me.

    I feel like you're onto something!

  5. Yeah that X-Factor audition has to be one of the darkest moments seen on TV. Even though it's obviously heavily edited, I'm surprised Britney's people let them even keep it in.

  6. Nick Lachey just tied with Don Philip. Didn't see that coming!

    Jeff Timmons > Nick Lachey for me.

    Remember when Jeff, Drew and Nick were shirtless a lot in 98 Degrees' promo pics? Good times.

    The Beat Goes On

    Average : 6.09
    Highest score : 10 x 3 (@soratami, @Sprockrooster, @Angeleyes)
    Lowest score : 0 x 1 (@Robert) 2 x 2 (@Robsolete, @iheartpoptarts)

    Britney's album closer and cover of the Sonny & Cher hit is the next to exit. British group All Seeing I had a hit in early 1998 with their cover, and they also co-produced Britney's version later on in the year. Unsurprisingly her cover is more similar to theirs than the original.

    @A$AP Robbie says, "This is a great version of a great song", but @vague, who is obviously forgetting the iconic (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction, disagrees, "All of Britney's covers are kind of garbage, and this is definitely the worst one". "Interesting classic to cover, not ruined by Britney" adds @unnameable, but @WowWowWowWow ain't a fan, "Thank g-d Sonny Bono was already gone by the time this came out". Beats are pumping on the stereo for @berserkboi, "Grows on you, and similarities to Sound Of The Underground for anyone else?", while @DJHazey shares, "Apparently the original was by Sonny Bono but I always knew the electronica one in the late 90s and this is an odd but okay take on it" and @iheartpoptarts reveals "I discovered Britney’s little Millennium ad years too late after finally listening to this song all the way to the end by accident". @PushyBakerFriend knows good things take time, "Okay, so this was an instant 0 at first. But then I just gave in, and I don't utterly loathe it anymore, which just shows the value of patience and persistence" while @Angeleyes was always destined to be part of Hipsterjustice "This is actually pretty experimental for a bubblegum pop album. This is electronica territory. I appreciate it more now than I did as a kid, though I still loved it then".

  9. Good to see that song gone. I never got on with it for some reason. This one and Soda Pop are the only real duds on the album to me.

    Oh, I really like this one!

    (I also really like Soda Pop and I Will Still Love You, though, so what do I know?)

  11. More songs to delete and replace with 'Deep In My Heart'...

    Deep In My Heart was on my edition so I had all of them to listen to!

    Poor all of you who missed out on that bop the first time around.
  13. Not to worry, I had an Australian edition with everything on it, too!

    But I still love my old Canadian copy because it's pale pink with a navy flower and not everyone has that.

  14. I always liked The Beat Goes On.

  15. The shear gay bait inherent in Britney covering a Cher song deserved better! C'mon there's plenty left on Mandy and Jessica that's worse than this!

  16. Thank god The Beat Goes On is out, it's crap. God knows how it beat Where You Are.

    It's time for Thinking About You to leave too, it's garbage.

  17. The Pink Bubblegum Mix will save it!

    ...I hope.

  18. I Will Still Love You aside, these last 5 cuts have been spot on. I cannot believe Autumn Goodbye, Deep In My Heart, I'm So Curious, and even the generic but amazing I'll Never Stop Loving You got shafted over The Beat Goes On (and Email My Heart) tracklist wise.

    I Can, I Will

    Average : 6.14
    Highest score : 10 x 1 (@CasuallyCrazed) 8.6 x 1 (@berserkboi)
    Lowest score : 2 x 1 (@A$AP Robbie) 4 x 4 (@GimmeWork, @londonrain, @Robsolete, @Robert)

    I Can, I Will is the last of Jessica's three extras to fall. Released as a b-side to I Wanna Love You Forever, the boppiness has obviously helped it become the most popular of her bonus tracks.

    @iheartpoptarts knows what I mean, "I feel like I’m overrating this just because it’s not a ballad but what the heck", and @DJHazey agrees, "I'm not even sure how great this one is, but it feels like I've stumbled upon an oasis in the desert of ballads I just walked through for 40 days and 40 nights". "One of her better tracks is an extra? Why??" asks @berserkboi, while @unnameable is still bopping after all these years, "I still enjoy this". "Trying to salvage the project here, I see" says @WowWowWowWow, while @vague adds "Not bad, but nothing special either. at least it's not another tuneless ballad, christ, so maybe my score is a bit higher than it would've been if this was placed earlier on the album dddd".

  20. Yeah, I think that was my highest rated Jessica number, too bad she has another 5 to go!
