Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
Since he began his career at the age of seven, Aaron Carter -- kid brother to Backstreet Boy Nick Carter -- has become a platinum-selling singer and a TV regular on Disney and Nickelodeon. His fourth album, Another Earthquake, features the sweet and sunny "To All the Girls," the ska-influenced "2 Good 2 B True," and the beach party anthem, "Summertime," featuring the Baha Men.

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
When the voice changes, the career changes for any preteen pop idol. For Aaron Carter, the change is particularly bad -- he acknowledges as much on "To All the Girls," the second song on his third album, Another Earthquake!, when he sings "growing up can be so strange." That's not the half of it. Not to be rude, but the voice change -- noticeable on the previous Oh Aaron but in full effect here -- has stripped him of any of his charm; he may still look cute, but he sounds like a gangly, awkward teenager. In a bizarre turn of events, this maturation coincides with a selection of ten songs utterly lacking in the unsettling sexual innuendos that plagued his earlier Jive albums. Even when the guitarist comes crashing in on the title track, it's all shiny, fizzy bubblegum, all deliberately polished surface on the numerous dance songs, as well as the adult contemporary ballads. Stranger still, the songwriting is pretty sturdy excepting the awful "America A O," which offers unnecessary proof that teen pop should not tackle post-9-11 patriotism; "troubled times bring about troubled rhymes," indeed and is considerably better than those on either of its predecessors, making this musically the first Aaron Carter record that's actually fun particularly when he apes LFO on the aforementioned "To All the Girls," or when he sings "I know the Green Mile makes you sad". But, there's the problem of that voice, which never sounds comfortable, whether it's crooning, rapping, or singing. To the producers' credit, the wash of instruments often camouflages his weaknesses, but it's still kind of painful to hear him strain so much on each track; it's hard not to feel bad for the kid after a while, even if the only reason he's been making records is that he's the cute younger brother of a Backstreet Boy. It's a real testament to the record-makers that, despite Carter's voice, Another Earthquake! remains his best album to date. It's likely not many will hear it, since it's arriving at the end of the movement, not the prime, but years from now it will stand as an overlooked hidden treasure of the teen pop movement of the early 2000s.

    JUST WHEN YOU THOUGHT IT WAS SAFE TO LISTEN TO POP MUSIC!

    Just when you thought it was safe, Aaron Carter brings back some more junk to make your ears hurt. I mean this guy thinks he can rap (but he can't) I think that we should save our hearing and listen to MJ instead.

    Aaron Carter is sooooooooo hott

    Aaron Carter is a wonder. He is most definatly the cutest boy on this earth, and thats not all he has one of the best voices on this planet. I use to think he was a sucky artist that just got into the music world cause of his brother but the boy really does have talent and a lot of it. Now I am most deffinatly Aaron's biggest fan(not lying)

    Aaron Carter is totaly in!

    Aaron Carter is on fire! His new CD, Another Earthquake is the best one yet! His other ones are great but now he's putting his name out there. You should buy this CD today; you'll be sorry if you don't. Release the hounds... He's a fox! :)

    To Stephen Thomas Erlewine(the B&N reviewer)

    I cannot even say how upset I was when I read the review on Another Earthquake!!! Granted, the cd and Aaron himself are not for everyone and I understand that this man was just doing his job reviewing the cd and giving his opinion...but the way he shot Aaron down really upsets me. And the thing that gets me the most, is saying that he's only doing this because of Nick. I HATE when people say that. Aaron is his own person and he is so incredibly talented. I've met him a few times, and he is so nice and you KNOW that he loves what he does. He himself has acknowledged that his voice is changing and that that's just going to be a part of it. So, to anyone considering buying this cd, please disregard that review. Another Earthquake is, by far, Aaron's best cd and a true fan won't be swayed by what that man had to say!

    This cd rocks!!!!!!!!!

    It's his best one yet. I have all of his cds from 98-now and this is his best one yet. Wow. He sounds so older. He sings a song which I don't think is for the young age. It's one of my faves. My faves are: Another Earthquake! My First Ride Do You Remember America A O Without You (There'd Be No Me) Sugar. Those are the best ones even though Sugar is more for the older range. He was a sweetheart to help Nivk out with the sound clips. Aaron is gonna give us Another Earthquake!.

    Another Earthquake Review

    Yes, I own Aaron's new CD Another Earthquake, and although he was going for an older sound...i don't think hes reached it yet...dont get me wrong...i LOVE aaron, but i still think his songs sound childish....the untitled track 11 (sugar) i felt was the only song that really made it to the mature catagory....nice sound...radio material...although i enjoyed track 1, another earthquake and track 4 my first ride...the sound isnt quite mature enough to blast in your car without being laughed at....but, i read the review on Aaron's CD done by barnes and noble...and i must say...NOT TO BE RUDE?!?! you have to be kidding me, you took the poor kids pride completely away, that was by far the rudest review i have EVER read....I can fully understand giving somebody a bad review, but being rude is unessisary and rediculous....and if you have the nerve to be so rude, use the correct context when you rudely insult somebody...the word "gangly" cannot be used to describe a voice. but only to describe someones physical attributes, sorry but..if your going to be so incredibly rude...do it right...keep trying aaron! youll make it

    FORGET WHAT THE OLD FOLKS SAY THIS CD "ROCKS'' IF YOU'RE AN AARON CARTER FAN!

    Aaron has matured alot even since "Oh Aaron",when I bought this (the day it was released of course) I couldn't and still can't quit listening to it! I liked the rap/pop/r&b before but I REALLY like the new rock elements in it! Aaron has matured alot and his music is less cornea,no it's STILL not Mtv material but I liked it! Plus it's great to dance to, "Sugar" had me standing up in no time! Overall I wouldn't give it a perfect score but I'd give it a score that's close! It has a nice fun sound to it,Aaron has learned to sing,and it has more depth...sugar coated that is!
