Since Christina Aguilera is the third and last of the New Mickey Mouse Club alumni to hit the charts in the mid-'90s -- following two members of 'N Sync and Britney Spears -- it's easy for cynical observers to assume that she was the lesser of the three talents since she arrived last after everyone scaled the charts. That's not the case

Overview

Since Christina Aguilera is the third and last of the New Mickey Mouse Club alumni to hit the charts in the mid-'90s -- following two members of 'N Sync and Britney Spears -- it's easy for cynical observers to assume that she was the lesser of the three talents since she arrived last after everyone scaled the charts. That's not the case at all. If anything, Aguilera is the best of the three, blessed with a rich voice that's given the material it deserves. Her eponymous debut remains firmly within the teen-oriented dance-pop genre, but unlike Spears' album, this is done right. The songwriting is strong -- the ballads are engaging, the dance numbers are catchy -- the production is clean and uncluttered, letting Aguilera's voice take the foreground. Most impressively, she not only has charisma, she can actually sing, bringing conviction to these love and heartbreak songs. So, Christina Aguilera may be lightweight, but it's lightweight in the best possible sense -- breezy, fun, engaging, and enjoyable on each repeated listen. Out of the deluge of teen-pop albums in 1999, this feels like the best of the lot.

THIS YOUNG WOMAN HAS A VOICE TO DIE FOR. LOOK OUT BRITNEY SPEARS, MANDY MOORE AND JESSICA SIMPSON. CHRISTINA IS DEFINITELY THE ONE TO WATCH RIGHT NOW. SHE IS UP FOR TWO OR THREE GRAMMYS THIS YEAR AND SHE IS SO DESERVING OF THEM ALL. SHE HAS A FANTASTIC VOICE AND SHE SINGS FROM THE DEPTH OF HER SOUL. YOU CAN REALLY FEEL THE CONNECTION BETWEEN THE SINGER AND THE MEANING OF THE SONG. KEEP IT UP GIRL!!!!!!

I love Genie in a bottle. There is so much hype about this Spears girl, when Christina should be getting the attention. She is a far better singer and to be quite honest, she's a lot better looking.

I think this cd is great, and it is better than britney spears ( just about anything is ), but Christina Aguilera is turning into all of the other so-called pop princesses. As soon as What A Girl Wants came out, she started wearing trashy clothes and looking way too made up. She doesn't have too many upbeat songs on her cd and some of the songs really suck. I bought it the day it came out, but I probably wouldn't buy it now.

I believe Christina has the most wicked set of pipes that any young artist these days has come out with...ie Britney Spears, Mandy Moore. She has a real style and wonderful taste...Go girl!!

I got the chance to see Christina in concert in Anaheim,Ca with TLC and all of the tracks she sang from her album were the bomb!! Her dance moves are so awesome. Don't we all wish we could dance like her.

Christina is a awsome singer.She has a lot of soul in her music.Even my mom likes her,so you know she is good! I love her music better than any of those other (new) voices.MAN I WOULD LOVE TO MEET HER. SHE IS MY INSIRATION.

She has a wonderful voice and has the dance moves to elaborate her talent. She is a wonderful role model for young teens ,because she shows teens how anyone can do what they dream of if they put their mind to it. And if I ever had the chance, I would love to meet her! :-)(-:

Christina Aguilera's voice is throwing people head over heels with her #1 single Genie in a bottle from her debut album Christina Aguilera. Buy it now , when you still have a chance. Its flying off shelves like a bee off a flower. When you get buy this album You might fing that you haven't really heard music till her voice was heard. She also has a very tight compition with former Mickey MOUSE Cluber Britney Spears with her debut album Baby One More Time with tracks including baby one more time, crazy sometimes etc. So I encourage any one to buy this cd. And you'll find out she is a genie in a bottle!!Avalibe where ever compact discs are sold.
