    Stop making music

    I can certainly understand the desire for catchy pop music. Everyone needs something that they can sing along with or dance to, something that makes up for lack of depth with memorable hooks delivered by talent with a strong personality. But Ashlee Simpson, with her ever-changing hair color, surgically-altered nose and forgettable voice can't deliver on this task, no matter how hard she tries. Ever move in her career reeks of desperation, shallowness and nepotism, from her MTV reality show ("Sissy has a show, Daddy, I want one too!") to her fabulous screw-up on SNL (a more mature performer would have attempted to salvage the performance instead of dancing a sad jig and walking away) to her supposed comeback CD full of the same vanilla pop junk (ironically titled "I Am Me", even though she clearly is desperate to latch onto whatever identity is currently fashionable for each release). This CD contains more of the same diluted variations of previous pop performers and styles, all adding up to a record with semi-catchy moments but nothing that's fresh or even fun. Get your toe-tapping hooks from someone who at least has presence, if not talent it's clear that Ashlee Simpson, no matter how slick the production on her records are, has zero talent and should just stop making music.

    Great album!

    I wasn't too impressed with the other albums made by ashlee simpson, I would say this album would have to be the best one she has made, every song is good on here, her music is fun to dance to, its not like before when she use to sing like a screaming hissy or a drunk robot.
    This album she made has catchy songs to it, its considered pop too, I'm glad ashlee stopped the punk-rock crap, her voice suits better with pop, her pop/rock she considered in her other albums was not punk/rock at all.
    This album is worth getting, Ashlee has good talent in this album!

    Well I Can Believe it !

    Look this cd is really good and i really enjoyed how the cd was. The songs on it are pretty kewl. I Mean this really doesnt sound like her old sound not as edgy,rock,reblish more of an understanding. This cd is engertic and very hip- retro. The songs are the type of the songs you are shopping at a store and at first your like ahhh. i dont like this song. As further as the song goes the more you end up liking it. At the end you ask where can i get the cd or is this song avilable on itunes.You should buy this cd i really like murder, and Bittersweet-world

    Bittersweet World

    I heard this playing in a store I was in the other day. Didn't recognize the artist who was pumping out the serious jam over the speakers, so I asked because I knew I had to have the CD. Imagine my shock when I discovered this rerto-alternative banshee was none other than Ashlee Simpson's new CD Bittersweet World. Really, this is good stuff!!! I swore I would never buy one of her CD's, but I did, and I am HAPPY! Listen after listen, EVERY song on here amazes! You will not get to fast foward past a single song on this collection. I wish this was her first album... she would be hailed as a legend in the making!

    Bittersweet World

    How can someone with so little musical credibibility make the radio friendly CD of the year so far? Janet, Mariah and Madonna have all released critically acclaimed CD's this year... NONE are as eclectic and consistent as Bittersweet World. Excellent guitar driven pop along with synth driven retro tunes, this is Ashlee Simpson's first really good work. Truly unbelievable. I didn't know she had it in her.

    Bittersweet World

    I am no big fan of Ashlee Simpson's previous efforts. Autobiography, her debut, was a generally promising step into the spotlight with solid guitar driven punk pop tunes. I Am Me, her follow-up to both her first album and her Saturday Night Live debacle, contained two almost good songs (the rest made my ears bleed) and did nothing to restore her credibility as a singer or artist. On Bittersweet World, however, Ashlee has found a truly signiture sound to fit her raspy vocal and her giant personality perfectly. It doesn't matter if you loved or hated her prior works... this set is a totally new gig for her. With the help of hitmaker Timbaland as well as Chad Hugo (half of the hit production duo the Neptunes) Ashlee has made the pop album of the year. I can't belileve it, but EVERY song on here is well above average pop fare. She has actually maybe created a new sub-genre...ALTERNA-POP. Won't go into which songs are best because I cannot decide!!! Treat yourself to this album!
