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!!!!!!

Christina Aguilera is one of the best non-christian singers out there. She has a much better voice than Britney Spears and uses it in the best way. She is also not as sexy as britney and that makes this a good CD for chidren.

Keep up the good work.You're the first girl,or white girl that had a beauiful voice. I can't afford your CD or CD's yet,but when I get money in my hands, I will. I can't say I'm your #1 fan, but I love you and your songs. Sincerely, Baby Blue

Christina kicks!!! Her music is so awesome and her messages are totally cool. This CD is a must have and I think everyone should have a copy!!!

I am an ''old lady'' who really appreciates the beautiful music this beautiful young lady puts out. She is melodic, has good vocal quality, has a blessed range of awesome octaves. I hope she will keep her head on straight in spite of all the tinsel of tinseltown so that she may mature into a diva of songs and last for her lifetime. God Bless!!

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.

I think this c.d. was wonderful but because of the lyrics are kind of provocative! I am a Christina fan but I hope her lyrics are mor clean (the bad songs are 'Genie in a bottle' and 'When you put you hands on me)

I really like Christina Aguleria's music but I don't think her voice fits the songs. I do like Britney Spears Better but Christina is pretty good
Guest More than 1 year ago
I don't what lead me to listening to this CD, but I can say that it's terrific. My 2 favorites are 'Genie in a Bottle' and 'What a Girl Wants'

She has a fantastic voice, and cool catchy songs(except for Somebody's Somebody and Obvious, I didn't like those.), and has a nice personality, too. If you like pop, R&B, or rock, Christina has it all!

Christina is the real deal! She is hot AND can sing! WOW! She is going to be the next diva as long as she doesn't do anything stupid with her life. She has an amazing voice and can do anything she wants with it.
