    With some hits and misses, A.K.A. journeys through some predictable refrains with a handful of prospective triumphs.

    The album features more guest rappers than even her 2002 remix album, and the standout "Acting Like That," featuring the always reliable Iggy Azalea, is handily the hardest beat she's ever bought. Unfortunately, A.K.A. also includes a slew of midtempo ballads whose soaring hooks and slick production are wasted on Lopez's reedy voice.

    When the scale tips too heavily toward rhythm--as it does on "Booty" and "I Luh Ya Papi"--the productions don't do Lopez many favors, burying her in their thrum.

    Anybody who heard 2011's Love? won't find much new here, forgettable EDM-by-numbers floor-fillers jostling with marginally more inspired ballads.
  5. A.K.A. finds J.Lo throwing anything she can at the wall to see what sticks.

    Beyond summer-anthem contender "I Luh Ya Papi," Lopez supplements flat production from names like RoccStar with forgettable verses from rappers like T.I.

    The songwriting is lazy ("I feel good," she coos, "'cause I don't feel bad." Logic!). The double entendres don't make sense (is "Troubeaux" what they call trouble in Bordeaux?). And the guest stars, including Nas, Rick Ross, and Iggy Azalea, are so much more engaging than their hostess that Lopez sounds like she's been relegated to playing the hook girl on her own album.

    A.K.A. is Jennifer's most solid work since This Is Me...Then released back in 2002. This album marks Lopez's return to her R&B, soul, hip-hopA.K.A. is Jennifer's most solid work since This Is Me...Then released back in 2002. This album marks Lopez's return to her R&B, soul, hip-hop roots with a little bit of pop. Great melodies, exquisite production from Roccstar, Detail and her long time producer Cory Rooney. A.K.A. is a perfect blend of TIM...T and Rebirth. Album flows smoothly, starting from the title track, an R&B/hip-hop smash and ending with classic JLo sound on "Same Girl" feat. guest star French Montana. Beautiful ballads like "Emotions" and "Let It Be Me" show Lopez's voice at its best. The album most controversial track because of its title "Booty" can a a hot summer smash if released. Expand

    Can we all just get over ourselves and just stop bashing JLO. Acknowledge the fact that this is her best album ever since "This isCan we all just get over ourselves and just stop bashing JLO. Acknowledge the fact that this is her best album ever since "This is me....Then". I mean sure the lyrics aren't her all-time best and her voice is quite auto-tuned, but I am so satisfied with her return to the R&B she was known for. The songs are so catchy and so much better than the ones from "Love?". This album is probably the summer album I was waiting for all along; something I can blast in my car with all the windows down. The problem with JLO's music and music in general is the fact that people let the actions of the musician influence their opinion greatly. Music is music and although the person making it aims to define herself/himself in a particular way, you shouldn't let that get in the way of how you perceive and enjoy the music. JLO has created something fun and immensely entertaining, and that's what music should be about. This is an epic album. Expand
