  1. J.Lo has a feisty, damn-I-know-I'm-all-that attitude, combined with pulsating, insistent beats that leap out of the speakers and make you wanna move.
  2. As a singer, J.Lo sounds more confident, as she takes more chances with a voice that is technically limited but well-suited to the material she handles.
  3. She's little more than an ex-Fly Girl with a bunch of studio tricks to help kick off the party.
  4. Lopez mostly sticks to a successful formula - R&B lite with a Latin touch.
  5. Most of the songs on J.Lo, for all their craftsmanship, are easy to trace to last year's hits. And while dance pop doesn't necessarily demand great singers, Lopez is just scraping by.
  6. Consistently aims for the lowest common denominator...
  7. Her vocals are so mannered, self-conscious, and limited, there is no way to gloss over the facts, except when booming dance grooves rule the mix.

    One of the best albums in pop music. This one made Jennifer what she is today. J.Lo, the well known brand in entertainment history. Diverse sound of the album proves that JLo shines equaly as a pop, latin and urban artist. Expand

    Even though I truly love Jennifer, this album was not a 10. The opening track "Love Don't Cost a Thing" had me dancing, but some of the other tracks did not have that same intensity...Overall good album Expand

    Though some of the tracks do work, they cannot elevate the album enough. Fillers outnumber the hits and while she goes on working with different genres here, it's mostly forgettable. Expand
