Though Miss Tarsha Nicole Jones makes her full-length debut with The Other Woman, the R&B singer arrives equipped with the substantial reputation of underground hit singles, guest appearances on rap tracks, and her own New York radio spots. And with The Other Woman's rap and croon cameos--from Mobb Deep, Craig Mack, Doug E. Fresh, and Dru Hill's Jazz--Miss Jones clearly has the support of friends in high places. But despite all this, the only places where The Other Woman distinguishes itself from the late-1990s glut of slickly produced, formulaic female vocal releases is with songs such as her Miki Howard cover, "Love Under New Management," which flirts with an even more saccharine era of R&B. For the most part, Miss Jones's music is as generic as her name. --Roni Sarig

Missjones' Debut Album!!!! Good, but I Expected More...

"This is Missjones' 1998 debut album from Motown. Hardcore R&B fans might know that this artist scored a few underground hits in 1994 with her singles "Don't Front" and "Where I Wanna Be Boy" from a now bankrupt record label called StepSun. She also had a never-released underground song called "Love Somebody Else" featuring the Lox, which used the same sample as Puffy's "All About the Benjamins" and lifted the chorus from the 70's Jones Girls song "You're Gonna Make Me Love Somebody Else." Her early underground songs are true classics (although it's next to impossible to find them today), and I believed that she was going to be the next queen of hip hop soul.Although this is a very solid album, it did not quite live up to my expectations. The songs are not bad, but they are too plain, ordinary and mainstream for Missjones -- I think Motown polished her up too much. I wanted Missjones to maintain that raw, underground flavor from her StepSun days. Still, I really like some of the songs on here, and it's much better than most of the crap that pervades the R&B scene today."
Cool CD!!! Love it!

"Miss Jones' CD is a must! She's a great singer and every song is worth the listen, excluding the interludes. I heard about her in 1994 on the radio, then heard her again couple years later, however, there was still no album released by her. Finally, in '98, it is released! So long awaited! I'm surprised it's only her 1st album! The album is very enjoyable, my only complaint would be the interludes which aren't really necessary and so I skip them. Best songs on this CD would have to be: "It's So Amazin'," "Baby Maybe," "Two Way Street," and "Rain Down." This CD is a must have. Make it your next buy!"
