Christina debut album had definitely exceeded my expectations back then. It was not a sugary bubblegum pop filled album like that other Mouse-keteer, but an album with R&B songs mixed with a little pop and packed with a lot of soul! She had introduced us to a voice that has a lot of depth and showcased it extremely well for someone her age.
Christina has teamed up with some great songwriters (Diane Warren, etc...) and producers to bring us these catchy tunes and powerful inspirational ballads. "I Turn to You" is amazing, as well as "Reflection", which clearly shows the girl can sing. "What a Girl Wants", "Obvious," one of my favorites "Come on Over (All I Want is You)", and "Love Will Find a Way" are a little more upbeat, as well as "Genie in a Bottle", which will stay in your heads even after the songs are over. On all ballads Christina's voice plays center stage to show off her great range.
"Genie in a Bottle" had firmly established her as one of pop music brightest star. As of right now she has already proving her longevity in the music industry so whatever she wished for from the Genie had already been granted.
