Jennifer Lopez - This Is Me... Then Review
Posted by Michael Blaszkowski on 03.08.2003



Every once in a while, a CD comes along that is so powerful, so moving, so utterly above any efforts put forth before, that all you can do as a reviewer is give it a 10.0. With songs dealing with the tough issues like "realness" in the snazzy classic "Jenny From The Block" and the struggle with happiness in "I'm Glad", J-Lo's latest effort, This is me...Then, transcends its medium and becomes a work of pure genius and art.

Track Listing
1. Still
2. Loving You
3. I'm Glad
4. The One
5. Dear Ben
6. All I Have (w/LL Cool J)
7. Jenny from the Block (w/Styles & Jadakiss)
8. Again
9. You Belong To Me
10. I've Been Thinkin'
11. Baby I (heart) U

Bonus Features
12. The One (version 2)

Psyche.

Like all works of mediocrity, the CD doesn't seem like it'll be so bad. Standard pop music stuff here, but not bad pop music, you know? The second song begins, and it still gives the impression of blandness. Both first efforts feel the kind of tracks that play as background music in restaurants or as elevator music in Hell. Third song, same as the first two, and coincidentally, it's the track that caused the person listening to this with me to fall asleep. This CD seems to be good at that.

Eventually, the track "All I Have" with LL Cool J hits, and although it sounds similar to the first tracks, it has a certain "listenableness"(a word I believe I've just coined) to it. "Jenny From The Block" (written by, according to the insert, 12 people. No joke.), and is the only song that I would think had any effort put into it at all. After these two singles, however, the CD heads back down it's path of mediocrity.

Interesting note about this CD: those around me tried to turn it off twice while it was playing. Not because they needed to say something to me, but merely because they were goddammed sick of it. 411 time!
