Mary J. Blige began her reign as the queen of hip-hop soul in 1992 with her debut, WHAT'S THE 411?, and continued it over the course of seven studio albums, along the way throwing in remixes, live recordings, and virtually non-stop appearances as a guest artist on the albums of contemporaries. THE BREAKTHOUGH (2005) was one of Blige's most accomplished and acclaimed albums, and she continued to maintain her high profile on awards shows, in videos, and on the charts. The time was ripe for a greatest-hits package, and 2006's REFLECTIONS: THE JOURNEY fits that bill.

Blige placed 16 Top Ten singles on the R&B charts, and the best-known of those--"Be Without You," "Real Love," "Be Happy"--are present on REFLECTIONS. Rather than packing all the singer's hits onto one disc, however, REFLECTIONS also includes new material (in an effort, one can assume, to appeal to long-time fans who already own her studio output). In this way the set may come as a disappointment to those awaiting a pure blast of the best from this diva, but REFLECTIONS balances the old and new beautifully. As always Blige's top-tier productions; emotive, confessional lyrics; and stirring, agile vocals astonish, making REFLECTIONS a must for the devoted and the uninitiated.

Expert Review Music Review: Mary J. Blige - Reflections (A Retrospective)
By: Matthew Milam Blogcritics.org Reviews
Published on: 12/14/2006 5:21 AM
Mary J. Blige sings from the gut. Sometimes what's in there isn't pretty or safe for all ears. The voice she speaks from might not have either of those ingredients, but neither was that true for Billie Holiday (one of her inspirations) or Otis Redding (who sang the same way). For Reflections, you see her evolution from a woman in search of external validation to a woman who discovered peace within herself....read the full review
