  • Summary: The heiress and reality television semi-star covers Rod Stewart's "Do Ya Think I'm Sexy" (answer: no) and duets with Jadakiss on her recording debut.

  1. Paris makes no apologies for being mass-market pop, but everybody involved made sure that this was well-constructed mass-market pop.
  2. It's no pop masterpiece to rival The Beatles, Madonna or Michael Jackson's best. But then again, few things are. If however the bench marks are Aguilera and Pink, it's only fair to say that Ms Hilton or rather her album, holds its own.
  3. Listening to her debut album, you get the feeling that she breezed in and out of the studio.

    Shockingly, Paris the vocalist is actually listenable; no Gwen Stefani, but better than, say, K-Fed. [Oct 2006, p.151]
  5. If an army of songwriters and million-dollar producers can make Paris Hilton listenable, even for only 38 minutes, then no one else with a major-label budget behind them has any excuse.
  6. 40
    Lavishly appointed, expensively designed and almost entirely characterless. [Sep 2006, p.84]
  7. Though Storch and other heavy hitters do their best to craft reasonable facsimiles of a broad range of Today's Best Dance-Pop Hits, they can't hide the fact that Hilton's a shit singer who can't carry a tune even when the vocal melody is reproduced note-for-note in the arrangements.

    Brilliant. An astonishing satire on celebrity vacuity in the 21st Century...Paris will have the last laugh. On the surface dazzlingly empty, Brilliant. An astonishing satire on celebrity vacuity in the 21st Century...Paris will have the last laugh. On the surface dazzlingly empty, yet full of subtle irony meaning for the more attentive, the lyrics convey something of the dense, multilayered/referential suggestion of Melvilles chapter on the "Whiteness of the Whale", or for that matter, Brett Easton Ellis. Paris Hilton - musician/philosopher. Who would have thought? Expand

    I think that more of the 90% who is scoring this album with less than 4 doesn0t even listened the Cd, They are only scoring with bad grades I think that more of the 90% who is scoring this album with less than 4 doesn0t even listened the Cd, They are only scoring with bad grades because of their hate to Paris but the true is that this Cd is really good , maybe her voice is not great but the melodies are really good and happy . To bad that some people don't give a chance to her album. Expand

    Does anybody else notice thatprofessional music critics by and large, never give a bad review to any album on this site. Damn near every Does anybody else notice thatprofessional music critics by and large, never give a bad review to any album on this site. Damn near every album is in the green zone on average. The fact that this album even exists is a travesty to music fans everywhere. The positive reviews are just diahrea frosting on a crap cake. Expand

    This album plays it safe, keeping Paris in her little comfort bubble surrounding by a gaggling gander of misguided 11 year old wanabees. What This album plays it safe, keeping Paris in her little comfort bubble surrounding by a gaggling gander of misguided 11 year old wanabees. What Paris needs to do is pop that bubble and take a Janis Joplin style step in her singing. Until then, I'd rather hear fingernails on a chalkboard then Paris' whiny voice trying to hear herself over her bloated ego. Expand
