Simpson proves herself equally adept at both up-tempo dance songs and soul-stirring ballads. The title track is just infectiously good - I bought the album on the strength of this song alone; as it turns out, though, I like A Little Bit even more. Then you have What's It Gonna Be, a song I particularly like to listen to (although it does have a definite Britney-like quality to it). Imagination and I Never are throwaway songs of a sort; for whatever reason, these up-tempo songs really just don't bring anything to the party. They are not bad songs; they just don't seem to have any substance. I actually like the song Hot Like Fire, although I can see how some would not; the chorus has an interesting off-beat kind of thing going, and that appeals to me. The song itself is built almost solely upon a drum and keyboard played to a driving beat, so the song's success depends almost wholly on Jessica's voice - she comes through with an intense, passionate delivery, but she probably goes a little bit too far with it all. In addition to this, the whole phone conversation aspect of the track mires it in teen pop territory- which is fine for some, but it is not the kind of thing everyone will enjoy.
The ballads on this album are superb; each song is beautiful in and of itself, but Jessica's voice incorporates an ever-increasing level of passion into each and every one of them. Here is where her singing talent is really unleashed for all to see. When You Told Me You Loved Me is just incredible; in my opinion, it is the most impressive song on the album. To Fall in Love Again and For Your Love also come through as deeply emotional tracks that speak directly to the heart. Forever In Your Eyes, featuring a catchy Latin sound, is not really a ballad, but it has all of the emotional impact of Simpson's slower songs. I even like the duet with Mark Anthony, even though I'm by no means a Mark Anthony fan; on There You Were, both singers' voices blend beautifully and succeed in creating something special.
The album closes with Simpson's rendition of the gospel song His Eye is On the Sparrow. This seems to me to have been both a good idea and a bad one. Simpson's roots are in gospel, and this track really gave her a chance to let loose and show off her incredible voice, but the whole thing seems to get a little out of control as the tempo keeps increasing.
All told, this is an excellent album that seems to get better each time I listen to it. While two or three songs are relatively weaker than those around them, there really is not a bad song to be found here. No matter how much or how little success Jessica Simpson attains in her musical career, I feel confident saying she has one of the most truly gifted voices in the business.
This album isn't full of slow ballads but most of the songs are full of energy and some of the lyrics are very clever, my personal favourite is 'A Little Bit'.
Jessica simpson derserves to have a real hit with this CD. Its highly recommended from me. I have to say i don't have any other CD with this amount of diversity to be song by the same artist and i would be surprized if there was one. I am thrilled with this CD to have loved every single song, usually i will edit the playlist but not this one i couldn't. This is 'Hot Like fire' and i urge you to buy it, you won't regret it.
If you loved the song iresistable than you will love this allthough there is no song like iresistable but you will love every track at least i did. Iresistable is not the best track it just gives you a taste and tells you what the album is.
Your love this becauce of the variation BUY IT
