"This Is Me...Then" is Jennifer Lopez's Best Musical Album

"I am not a kid but an adult, however, because this site does not make it easy for me to write an adults' review form, I am using this kids' review form."This Is Me...Then" is Jennifer Lopez's best musical album. "I'm Glad" is a good and a beautiful song. "All I Have" is a great track. The video for that track only contributes to the fact that that track's quality is high,and proves that Lopez is a resourceful singer who can find any idea for a song and sing that song. "Again" is good though it is not strong due to that song's long beginning and an instance of a compressed line in that song."Baby I Love You" is Lopez's best track because it is filled with emotionality and because of the fact that its complexity is proof that Jennifer Lopez had worked hard on that song. Lopez is one of the best representatives of American entertainment. In my opinion, she will have to keep on being the wonderful artist that she is."
Better than Britney, Ashanti, etc, with a few catchy cuts, b

"If Jennifer Lopez can be given recent credit for anything, it's staying married to the same guy for 3 1/2 years and adopting a lower, somewhat more respectable profile than she used to have. This album, which is from a time when she was still quite hate-worthy, has a couple of OK songs, but is still more of a marketing scheme than a bonafide artistic masterpiece. On top of that it does have a couple of downright atrocious songs. "Still" is pretty good, "Loving You" is half-decent as long as you've never heard of Mtume, "Baby I Love You" is a nice understated piece, and the hit "I'm Glad" is fun, though like any song, they could've gotten by without samples. On "All I Have" a very self righteous Jennifer rips into her boyfriend (or husband) accusing him of cheating on her, and is absolutely adamant about not giving him another chance, despite the fact that she alludes to nothing that absolutely proves that he's guilty. Even a guest spot by legendary rapper LL Cool J can't save this one. Even more atrocious is "Jenny From The Block" which uses at least 2 different samples and has Jennifer insisting that success hasn't gone to her head. It's almost like she's bragging, because anyone who was familiar with Jennifer Lopez in 2002 knows that she absolutely had allowed success to go to her head."

"I don't consider myself a J-Lo fan. Every now and then she releases a good single, but I don't leap for joy when a new J-Lo record hits stores. I happened to over hear this record in a friends car and I liked most of what I heard, so I decided to buy the album for myself. For the most part, I was pleased with this record. This album is very urban. Jennifer samples from several hip-hop tracks and delivers great beats on a lot of the tracks. She strays away from her Latin roots a little and approaches a more R&B style in her music, which I love. I'm shocked at the number of bad reviews this album has gotten. It is a good solid record. Most of the songs have great beats and catchy melodies. There are also some great ballads. "Dear Ben" is a beautiful tribute to...well you know. And although the relationship failed, the song does not. J-Lo's soft voice is incredibly pure and captivating. This album pulls you in from start to finish. There are a couple of road bumps along the way. "You Belong to Me" and "I've Been Thinkin" are a little to dull for my liking. However the rest of the album is pure gold. Highly recommended."
