Like fellow former Mickey Mouse clubber Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera kicks off her debut album with a teen-lust nugget--in this case, the No. 1 single "Genie in a Bottle"--that the rest of the disc can't possibly live up to. Aguilera has a strong voice, but patterns herself after iffy role models such as Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey. Aside from "Genie," most of this music is straight from the cookie cutter, like the less than successfully sultry "When You Put Your Hands on Me" and the Mulan ballad showpiece "Reflection." In chart terms, though, there'll be no stopping her--at least for a while. --Rickey Wright

The dilemma Christina Aguilera will have to deal with in the early years of her career will be the constant comparisons to teeny-bop acts like Britney Spears and NSync. What a shame, because this girl is already miles ahead and can sing with the best of them! She has sung with blues legend B.B. King and will soon duet with Etta James, which shows her maturity! If you checked out her live rendition of "At Last" on VH1's "Men Strike Back", you know what I mean.
Her debut CD shows us a glimmer of the potential superstar that she is already becoming. Forget "Genie In A Bottle" and "What A Girl Wants" and jump directly to "Love For All Seasons", "Blessed" and "Obvious". These songs show her more mature side, while the more popluar songs were put on there for the younger crowd (flocking to the record stores!). "So Emotional" and "Somebody's Somebody" are also great uptempo tracks that will probably go unnoticed.
It must be difficult for an artist as talented as Aguilera to debut, as you must balance the importance of the audience you are needing to target in order to sell albums while still be true to your own talent and capabilities. I think Christina and her label did the best they could to balance the two, but it is obvious that she is far better than this album depicts. Its understandable that her debut CD was littered with some bubblegum ditties to attract a younger audience, but watch her grow on her next album. That will be the true sign of the artist that she will be.

Don't write Ms. Aguilera off as the next Britney Spears. Unlike Britney's babyish and mechanical voice, Christina sounds soulful and powerful. (NOTE: Someone said that Christina herself was the only one making the Mariah/Whitney comparisions...not true. Christina has said that both singers are influences, but SonicNet, MTV, and many others have compared her voice to them.) Here's my little review:
1. GENIE IN A BOTTLE: A cool dance track. It sounds MUCH better on stereo than on the radio, though. It doesn't showcase her singing as much as the other songs, but is still a good song, though nowhere near the best on the album.
2. WHAT A GIRL WANTS: This one's got more of an R&B feel, which is cool. I also love the meaning of this one. Plus, the remix is really cool, and should be another hit once it comes out.
3. I TURN TO YOU: Oh. My. Gawd. How can you listen to this, then call her a one-hit wonder? That part at the end where she holds that long note...incredible. I'd like to see Britney TRY to do that.
4. SO EMOTIONAL: This is one of my favorites. It's got this cool bluesy feel but is danceable. I also love the lyric "It's either black or white, that's right. We're making love while we're in a fight." That basically sums up life.
5. COME ON OVER: Another great one. It's fun to dance to, but she sounds great even on fast songs. Her voice just has so much substance, so much soul.
6. REFLECTION: Christina scores another wonderful ballad. This one's got a great message that I really can relate to, and Ms. Aguilera's voice adds so much more to it. Very powerful, very wonderful.

At first glance, Christina Aguilera seems much like the other bazillion bubblegum pop stars out there...namely, Britney Spears. But after purchasing this great CD, I realized that she is a truly gifted singer that really cares about what she does. There are a total of 12 songs on this album, all of them wonderful.
1) Genie In A Bottle- Christina's first smash hit, this song is smooth, sexy, and perfect for hanging out.
2) What A Girl Wants- another tune that topped the charts a few short months ago. This song is energetic, peppy, and includes a cool part not played on the radio.
3) I Turn To You- a beautiful song that is directed more toward a parent then a boyfriend/girlfriend. Christina really shows off her great voice in this one (that long note that she holds in the end is incredible)!
4) So Emotional- a slower, more relaxed track. Very nice!
5) Come On Over (All I Want Is You)- a really cool, fast song that makes you get up and dance! This track is one of my favorites. I wonder why it was never a hit on the radio...
6) Reflection- Who could ever listen to this amazing song and then call Christina a cheesy pop artist? This gorgeous, soulful ballad showcases Aguilera's wonderful voice. If you have not heard this song yet in the Disney movie, "Mulan," then I suggest that you listen to it. You'll be impressed!
7) Love For All Seasons- a very pretty song, but beware the digital ending!
8) Somebody's Somebody- a great song. It is very catchy, so don't blame me when you start clapping your hands and tapping your feet to the beat!
9) When You Put Your Hands On Me- a sophisticated, sexy song. Don't worry, parents, it's clean.
