I love this song.
Not crazy about the intro with Timbaland. With all respect he is a great producer but why does he always hafto squeeze in some pointless line for himself into every song.


  1. I couldn't agree more about the Timbaland comment. "Man Undercover" (featuring Aaliyah on vocals) is a great track, ruined by his lyrical input.

    As is "Left & Right" -- a great track on D'Angelo's "Voodoo" -- ruined by the rap garbage.

    As are multiple tracks on "Graffiti Bridge" through "Chaos And Disorder."

    Some artists simply don't know how to use rappers -- or just use the wrong ones completely. (See Robin Power, Tony M, Scrappy D.)


  2. first off.. as far as "Left & Right", although i dont really think it fits with the rest of "Voodoo" i wouldnt go so far as the "ruined by the rap garbage" statement.
    that was Meth and Red, and besides the point of this entry, plus they are way more capable than Timbaland lyrically.

    anyhow. as far as "Try Again" although Tim's little bridge at the beginning doesnt really add anything substantial to the song, i dont think it really takes anything away from it either. personally, i couldnt imagine the song any other way, and if those parts were just the instrumental, it might feel lacking without his "pointless" input. so.. yeah.. think it serves a point in a way.

  3. What a nice surprise to come across this video? I love Aaliyah and forget about her. I don't own a car and don't normally listen to the radio as a result. I had to rent a car to run errands today and was lucky enough to hear 'One in a Million' and 'Rock the Boat' and now, 'Try Again' Thanks!
