Product Description

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

Customer Reviews

The second album only had 3 good songs.
Deep Thinker
This album definitely proves that Jennifer Lopez can't sing and needs to stick to acting.
Geno
I really do like most of Jlo's music, but not this 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").

I was trapped in a soccer mom van for half an hour while they insisted on playing this CD. I thought I was going to be sick. All of her lyrics are about HER and what she has. With all the problems in the world does she really think anybody cares about her Cartier watch or what she drives? She really needs to get over herself.
There is absolutely nothing on the this CD of *any* substance. The lyrics are elementary and the beats are played out. No new ground is broken here, but when was she ever a ground breaking artist?
Anybody hear the new singles by Kelly Rowlands, Christina Aguillera and Pink? Those songs are actually about something and have a message.

Something has changed. Definitely. "This is me...then" the fourth album by Jennifer Lopez has a different sound she has never displayed before in previous cds.
It hardly ever gets any faster than mid-tempo, and even when that could have been a terrible mistake, she shows she can handle 70's soul quite well.
First cut "Jenny from the block" is instantly catchy and the most up-tempo track you'll find in here. Even when it can be a winner it sounds out of place with the rest of the songs.
If you are looking for new songs following the path of "Love don't cost a thing", "Waiting for tonight" or "Let's get loud", then go for Britney, because you won't find what you want in this album.
Something that deserves a chapter of it's own are her ballads .This time, to my surprise, they have been improved, and they sound romantic rather snoozy.
"Again" is an excellent track where Jennifer shows that her vocal range has widen since previous efforts. Her voice sounds sweet in songs such as "Baby I love you" or "Dear Ben".
"You belong to me" a Carly Simon cover, is another standout track, even when your mom tries to sing over it.
The overall result is good. Well, it must be when you have ten people writing a song. Jennifer co-wrote nine tracks and the cd is definitely well produced, if not overproduced at times. I would say it's a very good album though not quite what you would expect from a Jennifer Lopez album.
She moved on from her typical sound and tried something different. Usually when an artist makes such a change in their career, either they sell half what they used to or disappear a couple of albums after. Hope this is not any of those cases since "This is me...then" is not her worst, nor her best.

when i bought this album i was hoping i would be surprised...that my expectations of this album would be slashed and i would be pleaently surprised! but nah it's crap. I can just tell that straight after her release before this album, she ran to the studio and really skimmed over the paper she wrote on. every track (except "jenny from the block" of which she inevitably made an effort to give the album a good image to boost sales) is totally rushed and contains no and i stress NO catchy or worth listening tunes. "dear ben" that song just made me sick. literally, i barfed down the loo after i heard that! what a load of crap! rushed rushed rushed is all i can say i really think she let herslef down by rushing this record. the one before this one she obviously spent some time on, but this one...she made no effort at all, it was just her way of making a few extra doh.
If its in the store for the usual cd price dont get it. but if you really are a HUGE jennifer fan and the cd is on 90% discount....still dont buy it.
