  1. It may be all about style, it may be a little crass and self-centered, but it's also catchy, exciting, and unique.
  2. Aguilera doesn't have the gravitas of her heroes, and her forays into bluesy torch singing and '40s-style swing are stiff and mannered. But she needn't genuflect before the past -- she can make her own glorious kind of 21st-century noise.
