  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

    Surprisingly good. I never expected it at all.. Wow. However, the amount of negative publicity it's receiving is very unfair. Don't Surprisingly good. I never expected it at all.. Wow. However, the amount of negative publicity it's receiving is very unfair. Don't hate the album just because it's Paris Hilton. This album is even more entertaining than Beyonce's latest album. Who would have thought Paris can do this? I highly recommend Jealousy, it's amazing. Expand

    Paris Hilton Not So Hot Paris Hilton the singer. Who would have thought? Could it be possible that this celebrity known for her wild partying Paris Hilton Not So Hot Paris Hilton the singer. Who would have thought? Could it be possible that this celebrity known for her wild partying and blonde moments would find success in the music industry? The answer is a plain and simple no. With the exception of a few captivating, pensive songs, her debut album, titled Paris is nothing more than a vacant cry for more attention. For the most part the album is full of repulsive lyrics about being hot and sexy. Paris refers to herself as being sexy more times than I could count. Phrases like Expand

    so bad I hardly could say anything about the album.so damn shallow ('Fightin' Over Me'?? even my little-five-year-old cousin so bad I hardly could say anything about the album.so damn shallow ('Fightin' Over Me'?? even my little-five-year-old cousin could come up with better song title!).and why the hell Scott Storch had his hand laid on this album? plus Paris thinks she's the hottest stuff in the world that her songs are so meaningful and the other f**kin cliches.she should stick to spend her wealth by the frenzy shopping habit of hers.
