  1. Admittedly, her FM-friendly singalongs aren't rocket science, just fantastically effective. [May 2003, p.109]
  2. The funniest thing since Ravyn-Symone's Here's to New Dreams.
  3. 40
    There's little to indicate an intrinsic personality unusual enough to demand your attention. [#10, p.118]
  4. Amounts to nothing more than a party of five million bland cliches. [11 Oct 2002, p.82]
  5. 30
    Hewitt's problem on BareNaked, ironically, is that she lacks "it." Whatever magnetism she carries on screen, whatever eye-candy poise she possesses; it all comes off as vanilla in her music.
  6. It all amounts to the kind of mediocre girl pop-rock about dreams and stuff that one writes when they want to be Vanessa Carlton or Michelle Branch but don't really know how.

    I remember before buying Jennifer's album I listened to the first single "Barenaked" a few times before buying and felt like, "you know, I remember before buying Jennifer's album I listened to the first single "Barenaked" a few times before buying and felt like, "you know, this has great promise to it. I have a hunch that if this single's that good then when the album comes out I'll be in for a treat." The single didn't steer me wrong. This a good, solid, complete album. When I say complete I mean that every song is a good song that's fun to listen to and if were released as a single would likely be a hit. I love this album. I listen to it often and enjoy it every time I do. This is a CD I'm always going to treasure in my collection. I just wish more people would give it a chance. There's my two cents. Great album!

    Only heard the singe, but it can't get much better (or worse for that matter.) I'm embarrassed for her, especially seeing her Only heard the singe, but it can't get much better (or worse for that matter.) I'm embarrassed for her, especially seeing her singing this song live on TV. The most trite crap that is being performed. (Much worse than Brittany.) I could have written a more complex song using only lyrics from Barney the Purple Dinosaur songs. Expand
