  1. Like a silly holiday cocktail with umbrellas and sparklers, there is much to enjoy about Paris Hilton, albeit for one mad Med fortnight only.

    She's convinced an army of writers and producers... to furnish her with above-average R&B to pant suggestively over. [Sep 2006, p.108]

    Why settle for pseudosleaze like Peaches when Paris delivers the real thing? [21 Sep 2006, p.82]

    Shockingly, Paris the vocalist is actually listenable; no Gwen Stefani, but better than, say, K-Fed. [Oct 2006, p.151]
  5. What's most surprising about Paris's album is that it's really not all that bad; released by any other, ahem, artist, it would likely earn better notices than recent albums by the likes of Lindsay Lohan, Hilary Duff, or Ashlee Simpson--not that that's really saying much.
  6. 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.

    A few fast, punky songs suit her pout, but more than anything, Hilton makes celebrity sound boring.
  8. Uncut
    40
    Lavishly appointed, expensively designed and almost entirely characterless. [Sep 2006, p.84]

    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? Full Review »

Hilton's is a great pop record and I'm looking forward to her new music, I think she's getting judged too much for her social condition, but she's really good. Full Review »
