  • 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.

Don't look at me Every day is so wonderful Then suddenly it's hard to breathe. Now and then I get insecure From all the pain, I'm so ashamed. I am... See the rest of the song lyrics

    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.
  4. Spin

    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. If she had just shown up and sang her ass off, Stripped would've been a better show.
  6. Nearly every second of this overlong, 20-track workshop communicates the overwhelming struggles she endured -- while trying to become a superstar by age 18.
  7. t's nü-Mariah on mood stabilizers, extended with pseudo-pastiches of semi-popular songs.
