  • Summary: The 22-year-old pop star's second English-language album includes 20 new tracks, most penned by Aguilera herself, although suddenly ubiquitous Linda Perry assists on four songs. Guests include Alicia Keys, Redman, and Dave Navarro.

    As a pop record, Stripped is practically flawless.
  2. A must-hear recording rich with pleasantly surprising depth.
  3. Forget all you know about Christina Aguilera. She's discovered sex, rebellion, rock'n'roll and, at one amazing instant, drum'n'bass.

    As an artistic statement, Stripped is all over the place--it's a move toward hip-hop, it's a move toward rock, it's ghetto, it's Disney. [Dec 2002, p.137]
  5. Nearly every second of this overlong, 20-track workshop communicates the overwhelming struggles she endured -- while trying to become a superstar by age 18.
  6. If she had just shown up and sang her ass off, Stripped would've been a better show.
  7. t's nü-Mariah on mood stabilizers, extended with pseudo-pastiches of semi-popular songs.

    One of the best albums of the decade. Every single song is strictly personal and this album saved her from doing drugs or ending up like Lindsay Lohan. I bet this is Christina's favourite album, aswell! Expand

    I love how Christina finally got to use all of her vocal talents in this album. There is no other artist out there that could match her...atleast not for now :) Expand

    WEll I've only heard some of this CD but Voice Within and Beautiful put oceans of distance between Christina and someone like Britney S. She has an amazing set of pipes but what I really amire in her is the way she gives 120% vocally. I just watched Come on Over Baby for comparison--I haven't been a fan up until now but the she's come light years since then. Expand
