  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. Uncut
    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

    Being catch is not a bad thing for songs, but there's just a few songs which you could really listen and probably like it cause Being catch is not a bad thing for songs, but there's just a few songs which you could really listen and probably like it cause they're ''cool''...Paris got to improve.
