Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Between her first and second albums, Jennifer Lopez moved from sharp hip-hop to a slicker sound that captured the sass and heat of the streets, thanks mainly to the production acumen of her erstwhile boyfriend Sean "Puffy" Combs. On her third album, This Is Me ... Then, Lopez shows she's just as facile as her ex in changing names as well as musical personas. She abandons the impish J-Lo moniker for a more benign, and less interesting, Jenny, who makes an appearance on "Jenny from the Block." Here, Lopez insists she is still the same down-to-earth girl who emerged from the Bronx a decade before mega-stardom hit: "I used to have a little/ Now I have a lot," she chirps before cautioning, "Don't be fooled by the rocks that I got/ I'm still Jenny from the block." The claim stretches credibility given her well-documented status as a diva, but "Jenny" shows more pizzazz and humor on the album than anything else, except for her saucy duet with LL Cool J on "All I Have." Elsewhere, the album--which includes nine songs cowritten by Lopez--serves up a recycled paean to '70s soul, an anemic cover of Carly Simon's vituperative "You Belong to Me," and cloying ballads inspired by her new fiancé, actor Ben Affleck. Lopez dedicated the disc to the actor and includes a far-too-personal and gooey love song to him titled "Dear Ben." In it, she declares: "You'll always be my lust, my love, my man, my child, my friend and my king." There's plenty of love here, but what's missing is the verve and crackle of Lopez's earlier stuff. --Jaan Uhelszki

5.0 out of 5 stars A modern-day urban romance story? Yes actually... March 11, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Let me start by saying that I was an average Jennifer Lopez fan about two months ago. I've always had an interest in her singles, even when they went too hip-hop (though I think my young age prevented me from appreciating those singles).

Maybe it is the relationship (my first serious one ever) I'm in , watching the MTV2 & MTV Hits Jennifer Lopez marathon of videos & interviews that led up to the release of her newest outing "Rebirth" & basically revisiting Jennifer's music that caused me to go out & purchase all of her albums.

Out of the five, this probably ranks as my personal favorite. It just really came at a certain time in my life & spoke to me I guess you could say. There is a romantic vulnerablity about the entire album. From her sampling of late 70's & early 80's love, dance, & hip-hop gems such as "Juicy Fruit", "You Are Everything", "P.S.K. What Does It Mean?" to name a few, to the ironically honest (if not always original) lyrical wording of her feelings, to the washed out moodiness of the CD booklet's photography.

But the tool that actually really surprised me, was Jennifer's voice itself. While most have (unfairly) jumped on her for her 'limited' voice; Ms. Lopez actually shows growth, warmth, range, softness, yet assertiveness whilst singing. Never has she sounded so confident, yet at the same time really I guess what she tries to stress as 'real'. For a pop star Jennifer has a more than average voice, in reality I see her as this generation's Paula Abdul.

Musically the soundscapes work from an urban setting & blend into lovely pop balladry ("The One"), funky anthems ("Jenny From the Block"), & great mid-tempo moments that work as a ballad or something that you could just sit & bob your head to ("All I Have").

2.0 out of 5 stars J.Lo is now J.Bo--Ring November 30, 2002
Format:Audio CD
This decade's answer to Paula Abdul returns with her fourth(I know, it's mind-boggling)foray into the world of music. Much like the previous J.LO was quite different from her first set ON THE 6, THIS IS ME...THEN doesn't follow the pattern set by J.LO but follows more closely those breezy remixes she did with Ja Rule. To that end, intro single 'Jenny From The Block' follows suit with that now patented warm, breezy melody and the guest rapper(or in this case rappers, they being Jadakiss and Styles). She also mines lost Cover Girls territory with the opening doubleshot of 'Still' and 'Loving You'. Unfortunately, the set doesn't get much more interesting beyond those three tracks. Sure, she uses a well-placed sample of 'You're My Everything' for 'The One', and her cover of Carly Simon's 'You Belong To Me' isn't reprehensible(though it loses all it's edge in Lopez's hands). But we need a song titled 'Dear Ben' about as much as we hypothetically would've needed songs called 'Dear Sean/Puffy' and 'Dear Cris' on her previous sets. And contrary to those who remain misinformed, she'd have better luck winning a "World's Smallest A--' contest than becoming an even remotely decent singer. That said, her weak voice just can't carry alot of the slow to mid-tempo material that requires a singer of at least some skill or nuance. Overall, it's not quite as bad as her debut, but then those who've had the misfortune of listening to that know that's not saying much, now is it? Move on from this drink coaster and buy the new Toni Braxton or Deborah Cox instead.

2.0 out of 5 stars The definition of narcissism December 3, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
So if "Jenny From The Block" is so "real," as she repeatedly insists on album after album, why does she have to throw her riches in our face ("don't be fooled by the rocks that I rock," "I used to have a little now I have a lot") before letting us know how "real" she is? Give me a break. A real woman, with class, would never throw her riches in her audiences' faces. It just shows how low these lyrics are. A superstar like J Lo could surely hire a person with brains to write these songs. And she needs to quite trying to sing R&B (and rely on tired, used up samples)! One of the few highlights on this album is her remake of Carly Simon's "You Belong To Me," which is in her range, and she really pulls it off. J Lo, my dear, take a hint, there's nothing wrong with not singing R&B, just sing good songs in your range and stop singing about how rich you are.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't buy it! December 9, 2002
Format:Audio CD
I love JLo's movies and loved her JLo CD and her remix CD but I totally hated this album. I bought it thinking it would be a good CD and after listening to it once I realized it was a waste of money. I should have listened to it before I bought it. She really disappointed me. The only good song in her album is her first single Jenny From the Block. The other songs [are bad]. Mostly because she CAN'T sing! She's doing songs that only people like Mariah Carey, Toni Braxton or Whitney Houston could do. These are ballads for singers with good voices. J-lo doesn't have an amazing voice like those other singers. She does good with songs like It Ain't Funny, Jenny From the Block, Play, but not with ballads. I'm gonna sell my copy on ebay because it's not worth my money. I expected better from Jennifer. If you are thinking of buying this CD DON'T! Instead get Mariah's Charmbracelet, that's a great album! JLO should definetely stick to fast songs!

4.0 out of 5 stars J. Lo's best CD hands down.
This album is a slow and swaying, ballad-packing 12-song journey. 97% of the tracks are love songs and the majority of them are slow grooves. Read more
