Grammy Award-winning and 10-million-plus selling singer, actress and entrepreneur Monica, returns to the music scene with her very personal J Records/RCA Music Group aptly titled offering, Still Standing. To define oneself as “still standing” is a bold statement, and as her album title actualizes, “whatever happens to me is just a part of my story. It doesn’t define ...

5.0 out of 5 stars The start of a promising Career 22 Dec 2009
Format:Audio CD
I have listened to the majority of the Songs on Monica's first debut, & it does not disappoint. What is even more
surprising is she was only about 14-15 in 1995, & she sounds so mature it is amazing. The in depths of the subject
matters she expresses in Songs like 'Don't Take It Personal (Just one of Them Days), With You, Before You Walk Out
of My Life, & Now I'm Gone' shows someone whom has grown, & can easily relate to the things other adult Women feel.
This is what Soul And R&B Should sound like, yet the Industry favours appearance & appeal over raw talent, & class.
If Monica is reading this, I hope she continues to make more music like this. And if the Industry is reading
this.... bring back that Soul feeling in R&B, & stop producing this Pop bs that has been going on for way too long.

By Knyte - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
14 year-old Monica Arnold emerged onto the urban music scene hot on the heels of her future arch-nemesis, Brandy Norwood. While Brandy's mystique was sweet, fun and innocent, Monica's voice, style and image projected a maturity that magically transcended her tender young age. Urban headz simply couldn't ignore this young lady when "Don't Take It Personal (Just One of Dem Days)" was released -- it masterfully wrapped LL Cool J's [then recent] "Backseat (Of My Jeep)" beat around strikingly mature subject matter for a 14-year old: PMS. Producer Dallas Austin was definitely experiencing a surge of creativity during this time period -- he had just completed duties on TLC's mega-watt 'CrazySexyCool' a year earlier. Now let's get to this album:
'Miss Thang' opens up confidently with the sassy title track, sonically reminiscent of LA-based rapper (then current) hit W.C.'s "West Up". Next up is "Don't Take It Personal" which continues to skillfully communicate the gritty brilliance of mid-90's urban music. "Like This And Like That" is a decent hip-hop infused cut (featuring a cool rap by Mr. Malik) along with the mid-90's grit of "Get Down", a solid album track. "With You" is a 'too-sensual-for-a-14-year-old' R&B track that should have been a single anyhow...it's an early highlight of the album that has never (!) been skipped in the eight years I've owned this album. We continue with "Skate", a fun jam that bounces along like kids at a roller rink; it cleverly samples "Cutie Pie" by One Way.
"Angel" is an uptempo track that also could have been a single, it reminds me of Brandy's "Baby" except this has more of an ATL (thanks to background vocals by Debra Killings) vibe to it. "Woman In Me" is a plush interlude that perfectly segues into "Tell Me If You Still Care", a stunningly on-target cover of Jam & Lewis's song performed by the S.O.S. Band. Pre-'My Way' Usher Raymond joins Monica for "Let's Straighten It Out", a bluesy duet featuring live instruments and some of the most impressive vocals either vocalist has ever laid down (for Usher, think Donny Hathaway).
"Before You Walk Out My Life" was Monica's vibrant second single, and is (to this day) a great sounding midtempo not to be missed. "Now I'm Gone" is a bittersweet ballad with a misty (yet warm) vibe to it. But it's "Why I Love You So Much" that had me floored the first time I heard it. Produced by ex-LaFace collaborator Daryl Simmons, the old Babyface sound (think 'Tender Lover-era') gets resurrected one last time for this wonderfully sincere ballad (and radio single). "Why I Love You So Much" is never *ever* skipped by this reviewer. Ever. The sheer beauty continues with "Never Can Say Goodbye" (not the Jackson 5 song), a pretty ballad that softly glides the listener back to earth after soaring among the clouds during "Why I Love You So Much"...
The "Don't Take It Personal (remix)" samples Jermaine Jackson's "Don't Take It Personal", creating an interesting mix. We end the album with "Forever Always" -- a jam featuring an acoustic guitar, delicate percussion, and trademark ATL background vocals by Debra Killings (her voice is most recognizeable on TLC songs like "Creep" and "Hat 2 Da Back"); leaving the listener ultimately satisfied. This is easily Monica's strongest album to date, and at 70 minutes long, is soooo worth your hard-earned benjamins, scrilla, fetti, pesos, greenbacks, paper...you get the picture. 'Miss Thang' is an album that Monica, Dallas Austin, Rowdy Records, Arista Records, and Clive Davis ought to be very proud of. The best (and most solid) Pop/Modern R&B album by a female recording artist in the year of 1995. Grade: A+
Best Regards,
Andrew Knyte

5.0 out of 5 stars I had to buy it again ! 7 Jun 2004
By K. L Pulliam - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I love Monica's "Miss Thang" album. I first had it on cassette and played it so much that eventually you could hear both sides playing at the same time. I really wore it out ! Since then I have replaced it with the cd version of it.
Monica's mature voice at such a young age shows how truly talented and blessed she is. My favorites are "Before You Walk Out of My Life" and "Never Can Say Goodbye".
I would recommend this cd to all Monica lovers !

5.0 out of 5 stars MONICA- Queen of All Queens 28 April 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This marked the exciting debut of Monica Arnold, a true, talented R&B diva. I have bought all of her albums. I didn't care for her third, enjoyed her second but neither compare to her debut. With Monica you get no disappointments. You get excellent singing, mature lyrics, unforgettable style and grace. All of these songs merit a Grammy. Monica is defintely the most overlooked yet most talented R&B girl singer. She is the only girl R&B singer who can sing both powerful ballads and fast songs. Aaliyah and Brandy could not. Unlike Brandy Monica doesn't have to rely on studio tricks to make her voice stronger. And unlike Aaliyah ( RIP ) Monica doesn't have a lot of rappers and guest hooks. Monica is true to the game of soul. She stands behind Mary J. Blige as Princess of R&B. People unfairly put that title on Aaliyah but anyone with true knowledge of soul and great singing know that Monica Arnold is the only diva under thirty who can truly claim the title. New fans enjoy this freely, old Monica fans already do. Rock on, Mo!

5.0 out of 5 stars A R&B Classic 23 Jan 2004
By ClassicallyTrainedVocalist - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is an R&B Masterpiece!!--First Let's start off with her vocal ability, far beyond her years. Then we shall go to the hottest ballad of all time,'Why I love you so much'. Monica voice is on a whole different level on the song, 'Get Down'-- she says a line "....come play my game", her delivery on his line was amazing!! But her whole vocal concept was amazing, it was a cross between Toni Braxton and Whitney Houston. This is the training CD for all Female R&B artists that were post-Monica/Miss Thang a la Beyonce (who stole half of all Monica's Runs), Ashanti ( Who Attemted to sound like Monica on her song off of her Album 'Chapter 2'),Brandy,Mya(who is actually tone deaf)and all of the others who Id rather not name. Monica is the best singer ever, and this is not just coming from a fan, it is coming from a trained vocalist. Her vocal technique, everything about her voice. If for nothing else, buy this album to hear Monica's voice. It is AMAZING to her her delivery. Monica DO YOUR THANG MISS THANG

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Album and A Great Voice. 28 April 2003
By Deborah A. Newland - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Monica's Miss Thang is one of the best albums of the 90's.This album defines the sound of the mid 90's where baggy jeans and braids were in fashion.Unlike her teen counterparts Brandy and Aaliyah, Monica's album has more maturity and productivity.Some of my favourite songs on the album include chart topping hits like DONT TAKE IT PERSONAL (JUST ONE OF THEM DAYS),BEFORE YOU WALK OUT OF MY LIFE,LIKE THIS AND LIKE THAT AND WHY I LOVE YOU SO MUCH.The collaboration with Usher on LET'S STRAIGHTEN IT OUT takes you back to Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell days.Another favourite of mine is the remake of S.O.S Band "TELL ME IF YOU STILL CARE" which Monica puts a lot of soul in and made her own.This album is full of great songs and definitely gets a five star from me.
