1.0 out of 5 stars not good enough, 25 Nov. 2003
This review is from: In The Zone (Audio CD)
Ok I actaully have all of britney's albums and this has to be the worst. I did actually like 'me against the music' even though it would never win anything for originality, it was fun dance song and I thought the album could have alot to offer. I was very disapointed!
After numerous listens trying to like the CD, i did spend money on it after all, i have come to conclusion that it was a total waste of my dosh... I so wish I bought Kylie's body langauge instead!
There is One track that is brilliant though and My one star is for that track...'breathe on me' is great but still not that original really. I have bought alot of Cd's this year and this has to be the worst!

1.0 out of 5 stars This is me..then...I wish, 22 Jan. 2003
This review is from: This Is Me...Then (Audio CD)
I am not a Jennifer hater In fact I am one of her biggest fans. I got on the six, J.LO, J to tha L-O and her feeling so good DVD all of which I totally recomend and they sit proudly near the top of my CD pile but this latest offering is gonna stay at the bottom. Jennifer I am so disapointed in you! Why JLO has chosen ditched the uptempo latin house beats which I and many others loved her for. she was such a great artist even my parents loved jennifers music. Yes I love R'N B and Hip hop loved the Ja rule things on J to tha LO. But thats when they were fresh and original but to make a whole album full of these mid tempo repetitive tracks is now just boring! I bought this on the strengh of her prevoius work and the single Jenny from the block which Is the best song on the album and thats saying something because its not that good itself.
the only tracks worth listening to are Still, loving you and all I have. There is nothing fresh, new or original on this album which honestly makes it such a disapointment. dont expect 'play' or 'waiting for tonight' and expect a collection of forgetable ballads!
Dont bother with this because there is so much better stuff out there: stripped by christina aguilera or sugababes 'angels with dirty faces' I'm now gonna cry and wait till Jennifer brings out the real her then.

5.0 out of 5 stars Christina better than ever. Surprise yourself!, 20 Nov. 2002
This review is from: Stripped (Audio CD)
I can't believe this is Christina Aguilera's 5th album! Stripped is THE best album of 2002. Yeah I know most people hate her and would never give this CD a chance but they really need to. Just don't expect the 1999 Aguilera anymore because that is all gone! Each song sounds completely different I'm sure if people actually listened to this they would hear the growth and maturity and amazing talent that Christina Aguilera has to offer. Lyrically the album is amazing and seeing as she wrote almost the entire album it really is a true reflection of the girl's innermost feelings, stripped. This album is about real emotions and real situations everybody can relate to. It's also about having fun and being you!
1.Stripped Intro: An introduction into the world of Christina. Which is a little crazy. Excellent beat. And it's a perfect way to start to get to know the REAL Aguilera sets a great tone for what's to follow (5/5)
2.Can't hold us down (feat. Lil' Kim): If you thought 'what a girl wants' was the biggest girl power anthem wait till you hear this! The girl has a point in what she's saying! The 'shout louder' chorus is perfect for Christina's amazingly powerful voice. The break down is my favourite part! Lil' Kim is just the icing on the cake! Pure Quality R 'n B. (5/5)
3.Walk Away: The real blues. The vocals are perfectly arranged. This song just makes me feel for the words and it's one you'll be singing along to in no time. The lyrics are so heart aching and truthful. One of the best. Complete euphoria (5/5)
4.Fighter: This is 10 times better than the early demo version. The Hard Rock edge is what makes this song so great and appealing. Different to anything I have ever heard on a 'pop' album. You just have to laugh when you hear 'Britney's 'I love rock and roll'. That has nothing on this song. This IS ROCK N' ROLL!! Another outstanding track (5/5)
5.Primer Amore Interlude: It's in Spanish I wish I knew what she was talking about; apparently it's about her ex dancer boyfriend Jorge Santos. Well anyway it's good in the way it helps the CD flow together. (5/5)
6.Infatuation: Here is the song she premiered at the 2002 winterOlympics. It has a real LATIN flavour to it. That harks back to wonderful memories of, 'Mi reflejo.' It's probably the most POP this album gets. Aguilera's voice is at it's strongest and it really makes you feel she's singing these songs from her heart. (5/5)
7. Loves Embrace Interlude: Again another Interlude. Sounds like a beautiful relaxing summers day. (3/5)
8.Loving me for me: A slow slinky sexy song. Which at first I wasn't too keen on because of the pace but after repeated listens I have fallen in love. I love the speaking bits in the song. It's just so honest. (4/5)
9.Impossible: Alicia keys is writer and producer of this real Blues number. It is in Alicia's own style, which is heard on 'songs in a minor'. Another to make you think about you're real life situations. It shows of Christina's amazing talent. The song is just so perfect. It has no flaws whatsoever. (5/5)
10.Underappreciated: Wow how funky!You go girl! The song is so sing-along-able. GREAT FUN! Not one of the strongest tracks but still excellent (4/5)
11.Beautiful: The second single from Stripped. It is quite frankly stunning uplifting and beautiful. Reminded me of the Beatles for some reason. This song has number one written all over it. I really cannot wait till everyone hears this. It will open people's eyes to how good this girl really is. It's a great ballad. It's so unique. I can't praise this song enough. An OUTSTANDING track. This is going to be Christina's signature song. One to be remembered forever! (5/5)
12.Make Over: MMM a bit Sugababes Overload but still different. A fun hippy style tune! Flower power! (5/5)
13.Cruz: Not my favourite. Too lighthouse family for me.Still it shines on its own. It's Christina after all! (3.5/5)
14.Soar: Again I feel this and Cruz are just not to my style. This song does build up though and improves toward the end. I just feel this could have been left out. Although if you like this gospel style then you'll probably love this I know a lot of people do. (3.5/5)
15. Get mine, Get yours: I LOVE THIS. SEXY R'N B! All abut naughty things like one night stands. It's so smooth. Butter wouldn't melt! God I mean it this is my favourite track on the whole album. I can't describe how this makes me feel. It's great! (5/5)
16. DIRRTY (feat, Redman): UK number one single and Christina's come back track. It's just pure genius! I swear it gets better every time I hear it! It's Hip-hop. Produced by Rockwilder It's got a filthy bass line and an even filthier video. I am so happy this got the number one it deserved! It's not generic It's not anything that's ever been done before ITS AMAZING! Oh and Redman makes it even better (5/5)
17. Stripped part 2: the hip-hop R'n B theme carries through to this and it links it all together! I wish this were a proper song it's too good. Many surprises (5/5)
18. The voice within: Very Mariah with all the vocal acrobats. Instantly loveable. Would fit perfect on the 'Christina Aguilera' debut album. (5/5)
19. I'm OK: You're thinking when are the songs going to go downhill but they don't. The first time I heard this I was nearly in tears, It was so touching. (5/5)
20. Keep on singing my song: I don't think this the best song to end the amazing album. But it is uplifting. It's hard to find any real faults with it. Probably just my own tastes again. (4/5)
All I can say this you will not regret buying this. It's also like a personal handbook to get over life's obstacles with is always good to have! Buy it now!

5.0 out of 5 stars Xtina's back once again prooving she's here to stay!!!, 25 Sept. 2002
This review is from: Stripped (Audio CD)
This album STRIPPED is going to be a must buy CD.
even after 4 multiplatinum albums and 4 US billboard no.1 singles and UK no.1 lady marmalade and collaborations with superstar ricky martin, christina's back for more prooving shes more than a pretty face but instead the voice for our generation.
Stripped is what christina describes as raw music, 'no hype no gloss':stripped. Christina has also stripped through her own life and personal experiences to write and co write these brand new amazing tracks. making this christina's 5th album release. Which promises to be a far cry from 'genie in a bottle' and even further away from 'just be free'. With her voice stronger than ever this will showcase what Christina is really about.
The first single 'Dirrty' feat. Redman is quite frankly mind blowingly amazing. Funky Chunky loud R'nB!!! Which is certain to be a hit. I like the fact christina chose Redman and decided not to go down the commercial Ja Rule and Nelly paths. 'Dirrty' is a party track with a catchy chorus and infectious hooks. Produced by rockwilder the guys who brought us 'lady marmalade'. So sing it! Rowdy!UnRULY!Hurry!Dirrty!Party!Body!Naughty!DIRRTY!
Other tracks that from this highly anticipated release are
'Infatuation' which Christina premired from the winter olympics closing ceremony. It's a latino based R'nB fusion which Is what christina is all about! and only christina could sing this. Lets hope she does another latin album after the sucess of 'Mi reflejo'. cathchy, fun and sexy.
'can't hold us down' feat EVE. WOW from what I've heard this track is single material. It's funky & fresh and if you thought 'what a girl wants' was a girl power anthem wait till you hear this. So come on girls SHOUT LOUDER!
'Fighter': This is pure genius! Rock and R'n'B in one song only christina could pull it off.featuring Dave Navarro on guitar, This a very powerful song and it's such refreshing change in direction, which confirm's christina is no longer in the same leauge as the other pop princesses out there Christina is the QUEEN!Just satisfying!
'Beautiful' according to producer 'linda perry' (of non blondes.)Producer on P!NK's acclaimed mizundastood album. The song is just beautiful! It also sends out a very positive message and is touching.
Also appearing on the album: on the song 'Impossible' is the amazing 'Alicia Keys.'who like christina a grammmy award winner and an amazing talent and together the pair is going to be unbelivebly amazing.
Other tracks include 'I'm OK' christina's answer to wife beating issues,'make me over' and cruise. The album is going to have something for all to relate to.
With Linda Perry, Scott Storch, Glen Ballard Rockwilder and christina herself as producers. STRIPPED which Christina has described as her baby is going to be the album of the year. and hopefully the most influnencial. REAL MUSIC!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Blew me away! Loved every moment! Not to be missed!!, 19 July 2002
Ok I was kinda forced to watch this in the cinema by my female friend. I have to admit I bought the ticket thinking what have I let myself in for!
But hey I loved every moment. It made my laugh, cry and had plenty of suspense to keep the average viewer glued. It had big guns and shooting for the boys and lipstick glamour for the girls! it really is a laugh out loud comedy for all.
The plot is solid and the characters are played perfectly by the talented actors. This movie really deserved to be a box office smash and has firmly become one of my favouraite movies.
I made my cousin buy me the DVD for my birthday and it was still as good as I remembered if not better! The features were good and informative, but the film alone would have been enough.
My advice is: just go and watch it! You will not regret it! Don't let his gem slip by you!

3.0 out of 5 stars 3 stars for what could have been 5., 28 May 2002
The film is visually stunning and beautiful which is why it was made in widescreen which was very advanced for 1959. So WHY WHY WHY is this DVD in full pan and scan screen when I know the movie was made in the widescreen format?? (It even says so in the 'making of' documentry) One of the reasons I bought this movie on DVD was to see it in widescreen. I wish i saved my money I've got the pan& scan VHS anyway. The extras though are quite good. The making of feature is very informative and the virtual galleries are very well made. The movie itself is brilliant thanks to the impressive art. (which we can only see half of)
Disney can You swap my DVD for a WIDESCREEN one!!

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent, 22 May 2002
This review is from: Underneath Your Clothes (Audio CD)
A brilliant ballad. Which is the same as the album version.(which i own.) I really just bought this single to hear the dance remixes. They are both simalr sounding but the thunderpuss remix has a harder beat. They are both excellent and rally complement the song. The lester mendez club radio edit starts off slow but soon picks up pace.
The thunderpuss remix is great for house music lovers! like me. I actually prefer this remix to the original. It's very powerful.
Also included in the single is Tracy youngs spin cycle mix of whenever wherever. Which is also very very good. But It is already available on the britih single of whenever wherever.
just buy this for the remixes of UYC. They are great.
The thing that would have made this CD a must buy is if it included a CD rom video. Oh well you can't have it all.
