Top Customer Reviews
Her ear for hits is so in limbo that she has to copy and steal to achieve chart success. Firstly, she stole the Ja Rule remix idea from Mariah Carey's Glitter by way of Tommy Mottola (Carey's ex-hubby) and released it as a remix of "I'm Real." Now, if you change the melody and the lyrics of a song isn't that a whole other song and not a remix?
Then, more recently, she released a song already recorded by another artist. This time Usher's "Ride" becomes Lopez's "Get Right." The latter is probably one of the worst pop songs ever released. It sounds like an annoying ringtone that never stops. The remix with Fabolous doesn't lose the horrid horns and adds irritation.
Lopez's new album Rebirth is really not what it claims to be. It is better than the vile This Is Me...Then but way down from J.Lo.
Mid-tempo tracks that wouldn't be the light of day if it weren't for Lopez's image like "Step Into My World" and "Hold You Down" featuring Fat Joe are plain and featureless. Even when Lopez tries to muster up some spice with the funk-laden "Whatever You Wanna Do" she falls flat on her face with dreary lyrics and a bleak chorus.
Then the rest of Rebirth relies solely on hype from "I, Love" to "Ryde Or Die." Even when she manages to catch some mid-tempo flow on "I Got U," she loses it from the ghastliness of the record.
To further the painful trip through this effort, J.Read more ›
But I first would like to address, for some (reviewers) to come on here and criticize her for far more than (music)work that is a little unfair. Also, some state that she is the reason why sales are so low.
That's ludacris, the only reason sales are so low today is because people today are too lazy to go out and buy the albums instead they rip (illegally) it from somewhere else or blatantly don't want to spend any money.
In my opinion, if your a Jennifer Lopez fan, you'll love this album. But if you're not a fan, I'm quite sure you'll enjoy it as well. I love 10 of the 12 songs on this album, therefore I gave this album a 4 1/2 stars. I didn't give a 5 because everyone has room for improvement.
Buy the album (a non J-Lofan)
The album contains danceable songs (Get Right, Cherry Pie, Whatever You Wanna Do...) which have, unlike her past hits (Play, waiting for tonight, i'm glad) a more "live" vibe to it, with a loud beat and drum-machine. Whatever you wanna do is made by sampling an old track by the Nite-Liters. In this track, she doesn't really sing, it is more of a conversation between her and a male voice (original concept) Cherry Pie sounds like a Janet Jackson or Prince song, it's catchy with the electric guitar who gets even more noisier at the bridge. Get Right has a "loud" effect on the chorus, to make the listener feel as he was at a club. In conclusion, Jen is good for moving dancefloors ...
the album also features ballads such as: I, Love with its cool percussions and non conventional chorus (not the typical I Love you, but I, + sentance, Love + sentance), Ryde Or Die, a cover of Brandy's unreleased, "If I", which is a cool love song, but would have been better without the annoying hip hop beat, and Hold You Down, a mid-tempo with Fat Joe, it is similar to the past hit "All I Have" but with a different message, its hook can easily be memorized, and the song itself sounds like made for weddings...The rapper is still disapointing in it...Read more ›
