  1. This is a very good record. I personally dare the “ASHLEE SUX” folks reading this to give it a reasonably objective spin.

    With constant acknowledgement of imperfections, Simpson separates herself from the peppy Lindsay Lohans and Hilary Duffs. [22 Oct 2005]
  3. The pop hooks are there, but we can't shake the feeling that the sentiments come off as phony.

    "I Am Me" is my favourite album released by Ashlee Simpson. I loved the more darker undertones in some of the songs. Highlights for me include"I Am Me" is my favourite album released by Ashlee Simpson. I loved the more darker undertones in some of the songs. Highlights for me include "Boyfriend" (it was fun and sassy), "In Another Life" (in which she feels like she knew someone in a previous life), "Beautifully Broken" (a song that shows her at one of her most vulnerable moments), "Dancing Alone" (she got all pretty, but it looks like she will be "dancing alone," "dreaming solo"), "Catch Me When I Fall" (who will catch her when she falls?), and "Say Goodbye" (a really emotional ballad). Ashlee Simpson managed to make an album that surpassed her previous one in many ways, and I hope she releases more music. Full Review »

Some of the songs are fun, catchy, and upbeat, Then, there are the songs that will just make you want to turn the lights out and cry. Exactly like the song "Undiscovered." What a song. Songs like "Catch Me When I Fall" and "Say Goodbye" are very sad tunes. "I Am Me" is my favorite song on the cd. It packs so much anger! Nice one for her. Full Review »
