Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Reality show star, amateur porn hobbyist and regular party fixture; hotel heiress Paris Hilton has decided she would also like to try her hand at being a pop singer. Just because you suspect she hasn't had any formal musical training, never paid dues by belting her heart out with the Mickey Mouse Club, or that she quite possibly bought her way into this whole racket on an expensive whim shouldn't stop you from spending a few frothy minutes with her opening shot, Paris. The single "Stars Are Blind" has a nice breezy faux-reggae vibe, producer Scott Storch sprinkles several tracks with his billion-dollar beats and there's even a tuneless version of "Do Ya Think of Sexy" that actually makes the original sound good. Pulling that off takes some talent, right? – Aidin Vaziri

Product Description

The hottest name in entertainment, Paris Hilton now adds singer-songwriter to model-actress-authorentrepreneur. On her debut album, Paris captures the sound of summer: a mix of pure pop, hip-hop and reggae, of bangin' beats, sexy lyrics and infectious melodies. From the radio to the dance floor, Paris Hilton is burning it up!

1.0 out of 5 stars a perfect representation of the current state of music August 24, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Something interesting I've been noticing is that many people (some of my friends included) are saying that they are surprised by how much they like Paris Hilton's new single. You shouldn't be. Someone with her infinite wealth can easily afford to hire the right team to make her album as addictive as possible. This is the same tactic that allowed Britney Spears to achieve huge success so quickly. She had powerhouse producers behind her to make her music extremely infectious, causing just about anybody who didn't know any better to think to themself, "Wow! This girl's a great artist!" No. There's a difference between being a great artist and someone with the right team of producers working on their side.

This music is addictive because of its simplicity. Simple tunes are easier to hum/sing/remember, which is very appealing to some people. They contain "safe" harmonic and melodic structures where scale degrees and chords proceed to predictable locations, which are very immediately pleasing to the ear, yet not very rewarding (especially in the long-run). Paris' music is just that: predictable melodic/hamonic structure, geared toward making people think that she is actually a surprisingly valid artist, when she's actually deceiving them so that she can gain even more fame and fortune. How predictable...like her music.

On top of it all, there's a magical device that the music industry has tried to keep hush-hush over the years, but is now becoming common knowledge to the public. Referred to by producing veteran, DJ Premiere, in the video that accomopanies Christina Aguilera's new Back to Basics album as "auto-tune", this aweful technology allows producers to adjust the pitch of someone's voice after it's been recorded. Wonderful.

1.0 out of 5 stars THE PERFECT LAXATIVE! September 1, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Ladies and Gents, if you're suffering from horrendous constipation, this trashy CD is the perfect remedy for your monstrous cramps! Just one listen, and you'll be bursting thru that bathroom door like there will be no tomorrow! Better than Ex-Lax! Highly recommended for senior citizens.

1.0 out of 5 stars A reflection of my generation. September 4, 2006
By John
Format:Audio CD
Twenty years ago, 2 years before my birth, no label would have signed a "singer" like this. It is just trendy basically. It also shows you the horror that is the music buisness. Not only that they could sign a horrific atrocity like this, but that people are so desperate to make money that they would overlook talented unsigned bands for this trash. Now, I won't push the music I do love on you the reviewer, like most would (including myself) because no matter what you like, rock,jazz,blues, REAL rap, metal, folk, whatever. You will understand where I am coming from. Music is about passion and talent. The only thing paris has a passion for is money and her only talent is spending it. Don't support this. Support real music.

2.0 out of 5 stars Paris what? Paris who? September 4, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Oh okay...Paris Hilton. I have nothing against her. As a matter of fact I have met her on numerous occasions and despite how the media portrays her she is actually a sweet girl. Forget about the sex tape (we've all been young & naive). Forget about the rambling regarding Lindsay (some of us have gotten drunk and said things we didn't mean). The majority of the time I choose to ignore Paris Hilton. I don't see why so many people hate her. Turn your head for crying out loud! Don't watch her movies! Don't watch her television show!

So...Paris is not a singer.I'm sure even before hearing this album that fact was established. But give the girl credit. She does have ambition. I mean, just because you are one of the richest people in the world doesn't mean you don't yearn to do anything.

When I first heard the song 'Stars Are Blind', I thought it was Ashlee Simpson. I didn't love it but I didn't hate it. The original version is too light. Too poppy. Nothing to go crazy over. The breathy vocals do not add anything to the song, either. The production sounds cheap. Although there is a remix (the Luny Tunes Remix) which is alot easier to stomach. I knew then I probably wouldn't be buying her album.

But after listening to the song 'Turn It Up', I surprisingly changed my mind. The beat was (for lack of a better word) hot! The production and vocals were a little better. If this were playing in a club i'd probably dance to it. So I bought the cd. My expectations weren't too high nor too low. Paris' album is a good example that even hiring the best producers will not guarantee you a good one.

'Fightin Over Me' is a wanna be hip hop mess. The chanting is annoying. Fat Joe and Jadakiss should be embarrassed they accepted the invitation to be on the track.

1.0 out of 5 stars All the gods are crazy, all the stars are deaf September 1, 2006
Format:Audio CD
It's pretty hard to write objectively when the subject is one of the most infamous figures in modern pop culture. Then again, sometimes you need a little nastiness to be really truthful.

And in this case, the subject is one of the most justifiably mocked albums of 2006 this far has been Paris Hilton's "Paris," a light-as-air album full of lightweight club beats and processed vocals. Given that all she ever sings about is how hot she is, it's kind of like listening to a sex robot.

The most prominent single is "Stars Are Blind," which probably has the best melody on the album. Of course, that's because it also blatantly imitates the reggae beats of "The Tide is High," the pop song by the quintessential blonde pop star. Although it's nearly impossible to imagine Hilton singing that "I'm not the kinda girl."

The album hits its nadir early on, with the appalling hip-hop song "Fighting Over Me." Jadakiss does most of the vocals. Hilton only sings the bridge -- and a narcissistic one it is too: "Everytime I step out the house they want to fight over me/Maybe cause I'm hot to death and I'm so so so SEX-EE!" she squeals, sounding delighted.

Things only get worse with the wispy club beats of songs like "Turn It Up," the meandering "I Want You" and the lackluster heavy beats of "Nothing in This World." There's a dabble in guitar pop, still heavily synthesized, before the style switches back to lightweight club pop. Unsurprisingly, it wraps up with a breathy cover of "Do Ya Think I'm Sexy."

Basically, there's not much to recommend this album, except to people who will listen to anything with a techno beat.

Famous for being famous.
I'm sorry I can't seem to give someone credit who didn't actual earn it. Let's not B.S. each other here, she doesn't have a job, the talent or have put in any hard WORK to earn any points for hiring people to MAKE her sound good. If she wasn't a Hilton sister, what would she be, I know, NOBODY!!
