    This does have the familiar tunes, so it serves its purpose.

    A cipher for good songs rather than the reasons those songs are good she may be, but there are few that do it better.

    The quality of the material on Dance Again varies ... but it's clear much of the blame for Lopez's disappearance from the pop charts prior to "On the Floor" was a precipitous decline in quality that began with 2005's irritating "Get Right."

    Honestly Jennifer Is Not The Best Singer In Town.. She May Not Have The Best Lyrics But Every Song Is Catchy As Hell! A Really Good Solid Album!

    "Dance Again... The Hits" is a clear reminder of just how many hits Bronx native Jennifer Lopez has had since her music debut in 1999. From"Dance Again... The Hits" is a clear reminder of just how many hits Bronx native Jennifer Lopez has had since her music debut in 1999. From latin hits including "Lets Get loud" and "Que Hiciste" to urban chart toppers inclusive of the "Ain't it Funny" and "I'm Real" remixes, Lopez has dominated many genres in her extensive career and this album highlights this successfully. In fact the vast array of hits that span Lopez's career are too numerous to make the album with 2001s "Play" and 2002s "I'm Glad" failing to make the final cut. Similarly, whilst US audiences may be more familiar with the remixed versions of "Ain't it Funny" and "I'm Real", the pop originals were bigger hits globally and it would have been nice if they were also included. Regardless, I am not critiquing the album based on what wasn't on it, so it still earns a very favourable review. The title track "Dance Again" is another catchy dance track, following global smash "On the Floor" from Lopez and Pitbull which is another welcome song to her extensive collection. Full Review »
