Product Description

Schizophrenic by JC Chasez

This product is manufactured on demand using CD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

Amazon.com

NSYNC's underage fans are going to get a shock when they pick up JC Chasez's first solo album. Either that or they're in for an accelerated sex education class. With the release of Schizophrenic, this erstwhile boy-band member has shown that he had a few impure thoughts during his band's squeaky-clean five-year run. If Justin Timberlake was the cute member of the outfit, Chasez was the hot-blooded one, and he's not afraid to show just how steamy by extolling his prowess, his proclivities, and even the geographic locations in his home where he has made love on this CD. From the athletic "All Day Long I Dream About Sex" to the feverish homo-erotic "Some Girls (Dance With Women)" he whips himself into a entertaining froth, but he doesn't really cross the lines of good taste until "Come To Me." Despite his dirty mind, Chasez has proven to be an adventurous auteur, taking his music to places where NSNYC would never venture, serving up the dangerous swampy gumbo ya ya of "Shake It," dance hall reggae with a song like "Mercy," or a more sanitized version with "Everything You Want." But he's at his absolute best when he evokes the sweaty specter of eighties dance pop on "100 Ways" treading in the same stiletto boots that the Purple One did two decades before. --Jaan Uhelszki

5.0 out of 5 stars Much More Skillful than 'Justified' May 23, 2004
Format:Audio CD
It's curious why "Schizophrenic," the appropriately titled solo debut JC Chasez of 'NSync fame, has sold little since its recent release.
While not appropriate for any of 'NSync's preteen fanbase, it would be selling hand over fist if it were marketed as well as Justin Timberlake's 2002 solo effort that pales in freshness and originality.
The first single. "Some Girls (Dance With Women)," while a decent track, was far from the best choice for the LP's lead single. However, there is no excuse for the ultra-addictive second single, "All Day Long I Dream About Sex," getting so little airplay.
The song, which pays gratitude to the sound the Human League made famous back in the '80s with hits such as "Fascination," is without a doubt the best pop single released so far this year. Perhaps the FCC and Janet have had some influence in keeping songs that literally say "sex" off the air, however one has to concede that a great deal of songs that have been in the Top 40 as of late are overtly sexual.
It seems the word "sex" is more important to censor than actual subject matter, thus "100 Ways," if made a single, would fit the bill; it is even more sexually charged (if that is possible), but never brings up the word.
While many pop music critics have trashed this album -- citing it has no musical direction -- it is this fact that makes "Schizophrenic" such a satisfying listen.
"Build My World," about his desire not to be lonely, features strong lyrics:
"Someone for everyone but no one for me/Constantly searching for the love I need to/Build my world around, around/I'll be the lonely one until I find someone/The one I build my world around.

Very few were surprised by bandmate Justin Timberlake's successful solo effort 'Justified' a mere 16 months ago. No matter how many cameras clicked frantically in front of the band for a magazine cover or paparrazzi shoot, it was no surprise to find Timberlake front a center. It was even less of a surprise that Timberlake's debut was a strong step forward for the talented young artist and the Grammys it received were well-deserved.
2 years after the *NSYNC hiatus began, enter JC Chasez: the enigma of *NSYNC. As 'Schizophrenic' proves, Chasez has a long and lustrious career ahead of him.
Opting not for the hip hop sounds of the Neptunes of Timbaland as Timberlake did, Chasez takes both a step backwards and a step forwards simultaneously - taking influences from the past and making them relevant to the present and beyond.
Fan of Sting and the Police? Check out the nu-reggae head bobber "Everything You Want." Looking for Led Zepplin meets 21st century production and pop sensibility? Check out "If You Were My Girl." Ready for the 80's dance floor anthems? "All Day Long I Dream About Sex," "She Got Me", and the Corey Hart sampling "Come To Me" are waiting for you. Remember the power of *NSYNC balladry? "Build My World," "Dear Goodbye," and "Lose Myself" all go a step beyond any of *NSYNC's ballads and break the cookie-cutter mold for pop ballads. A fan of electronica? Basement Jaxx makes an appearance on "Shake It." Fan of Prince? "100 Ways" is 21st century Prince.
JC Chasez's solo debut is the best of album of 2004 that will sadly slip under many people's radars. Despite the fact that JC is the "other *NSYNC guy," a few facts remain:
- While this is promoted as teen pop by Jive Records, this is an adult album.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good job, JC!!! February 24, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I don't own any NSync albums and have never given Justin Timberlake much of a passing thought, yet here I am in possession of a boy-band solo project (heaven help me). For whatever reason, Chasez' voice was always more pleasant to my ear than any other NSync-er; more distinct, more...potential. Timberlake did the expected: an R&B-tinged, blue-eyed, new-wave Michael Jackson impersonation. Ho-hum (wake me when it's over). Chasez, on the other hand, seems to have a need to channel the sounds, beats, styles and vocal levels of whatever mood he's in on any given day. Hence the title "Schizophrenic". A better title would have been "Schizo-frenetic" because the music generates heat. This CD is pretty damn good! Although I may never look at him quite the same since the song, "All Day Long I Dream About Sex". I didn't need to know that, but it's an outstanding jam to do the Robot to!
From the Stevie Wonder-esque "She Got Me", to the reggae "Mercy" and, probably one of the most tender and well-emoted ballads I've heard in a while, "Dear Goodbye" (lovely rhythm guitar, expressive vocals), Chasez got down to business making an album that you can shake your groove-thing to, feel love to and get naughty with in the privacy of the club or of your own bedroom. And when he does get naughty, it's quite respectful with his ladyfriend's best interests in mind. "Shake it-Do it 'til you're satisfied"- okay, if you insist. I did giggle at the "I Wear My Sunglasses at Night" intro on "Come To Me", but I got over it real quick (sexy song). And I had no idea that he had the funk of "100 Ways" in him- it reeks of Prince-like guitar, bass and drum play (and bless you, JC, for sneaking those horns in there), not to mention altered state-like vocals.
