why have they completely fucked up the US release of this? And why was "Losing U" relegated to bonus track status?

Because it would have stuck out like a sore thumb on the album.

i like 'some like it' even if it is horribly predictable coming from me. I love the tinny piano with its classy jazziness, matt bianco meets some passionate house diva who cant dance, i mean she sounds like cathy dennis. it just conjures all the right hair salon blow dried mousse french restaurant gold bauble feeling, it's so amerie,i walk with good posture, way more than that awful 'don't be afraid to touch' song, because amerie is jazzy. i agree the sam and dave song is boring though.

You know, she's really not a good singer for slow jams. I listened to an acapella last night and now her vibrato kind of gets on my nerves, it's like she can only do it one way and doesn't have a lot of control?I think that's why the uptempo rhythmic stuff works so much better for her.
Btw Make Me Believe, Crush, and Gotta Work are all A+ (Some Like it is A-)!

For some reason this just doesn't work as an album even though there are 5-6 tracks I absolutely love.

Best track = All Roads and its unashamed soft rockness.

Any other singer would have made "All Roads" into sub-"American Idol." I love how her voice starts to crack in the last third.

"All Roads" is kind of painful to listen to. :/
