  • Summary: The second album by "singer" Ashlee Simpson was produced by John Shanks.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 3 out of 13
  2. Negative: 5 out of 13
  1. This is a very good record. I personally dare the “ASHLEE SUX” folks reading this to give it a reasonably objective spin.

    With constant acknowledgement of imperfections, Simpson separates herself from the peppy Lindsay Lohans and Hilary Duffs. [22 Oct 2005]
  3. The pop hooks are there, but we can't shake the feeling that the sentiments come off as phony.

    Sadly, this follow-up shows signs of premature ageing. [Mar 2006, p.109]
  5. No matter how hard Simpson tries, no matter how foreboding the surface, beneath it all she's still light and frivolous. But that doesn't mean, by any stretch, that this is bubblegum music, since that term implies that this music is frothy, fun, and, most important, hooky, and I Am Me is none of those things.

    Her singing is not convincing in the least. [16 Oct 2005]
  7. Her sense of self-importance [is] so prevalent on her second album that it negates the mild pleasure you might otherwise get from it.

Some of the songs are fun, catchy, and upbeat, Then, there are the songs that will just make you want to turn the lights out and cry. Exactly like the song "Undiscovered." What a song. Songs like "Catch Me When I Fall" and "Say Goodbye" are very sad tunes. "I Am Me" is my favorite song on the cd. It packs so much anger! Nice one for her. Expand

    to "Mangle": who CARES if it's a "carefully marketed product"? I don't take music as seriously as you do, I want to listen to to "Mangle": who CARES if it's a "carefully marketed product"? I don't take music as seriously as you do, I want to listen to something that's just fun and catchy, I don't care about slow, boring arty alternative stuff like all the critics seem to. Are you saying we ALL have to like that kind of stuff and hate Ashlee? You have to get used to the fact that a lot of people like her. Expand

    Like many others, I think that this album is severly lacking....lacking in talent, in originality, in musicality....Ashlee needs to go back Like many others, I think that this album is severly lacking....lacking in talent, in originality, in musicality....Ashlee needs to go back to acting...she has little range as a singer and is merely a puppet for the people around her..."I Am Me"? Ashlee, who are you? Gwen Stefani's wannabe clone? Find yourself, then maybe try again...maybe, but learn to sing first... Expand

This album sounds as if she's taken a number of great songs and just re-worked them in a different key and sprayed her "trademark" growl all over them. Really, really bad. Expand
