Rebirth

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
After a very public broken engagement with actor Ben Affleck and a heavily scrutinized marriage months later to Latin pop king Marc Anthony, a less diva-like Jennifer Lopez emerges on Rebirth. Unlike 2002's ballad-heavy This Is Me...Then, which includes the sappy Affleck valentine "Dear Ben," Lopez now keeps the beats hard and the subject matter light, particularly on the James Brown–sampled single "Get Right" and the club thumper "Whatever You Wanna Do," both compliments of Beyoncé's "Crazy in Love" producer Rich Harrison. But, with inquiring minds wanting to know, she can't help but -- albeit indirectly -- address her current relationship. Thus, on the summery, Rodney Jerkins–produced "I Got You," the actress ...

After a very public broken engagement with actor Ben Affleck and a heavily scrutinized marriage months later to Latin pop king Marc Anthony, a less diva-like Jennifer Lopez emerges on Rebirth. Unlike 2002's ballad-heavy This Is Me...Then, which includes the sappy Affleck valentine "Dear Ben," Lopez now keeps the beats hard and the subject matter light, particularly on the James Brown–sampled single "Get Right" and the club thumper "Whatever You Wanna Do," both compliments of Beyoncé's "Crazy in Love" producer Rich Harrison. But, with inquiring minds wanting to know, she can't help but -- albeit indirectly -- address her current relationship. Thus, on the summery, Rodney Jerkins–produced "I Got You," the actress sounds as if she's reassuring her third hubby with lyrics like, "Things are often said to doubt what I feel for you, but words that people say won't take my love away." And on the low-key "Ryde or Die," co-written by Brandy, the former Fly Girl readily admits that she's a fool in love who'd "go through all the pain again just to find you." Although she only co-wrote two songs, including the disc's lone melodramatic ballad "Can't Believe This Is Me" with Anthony, lyrically, Rebirth is certainly wag-worthy and the production top-notch, most notably Timbaland's "He'll Be Back" -- a sonic bookend to Justin Timberlake's "Cry Me a River" -- where Lopez pines over love lost. Fans expecting more of a hip-hop edge à la "I'm Real" and "Jenny from the Block," however, may feel somewhat cheated by this more mature dance-pop offering. Anna Powell
All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
The last time Jennifer Lopez made an album -- 2002's This Is Me... Then -- she was deeply love with actor/Academy Award-winning screenwriter Ben Affleck, a relationship immortalized in the video for "Jenny From the Block" and "Dear Ben," a ballad that rivals Billy Bob Thornton's "Angelina" as the greatest celebrity love song of the 2000s. Of course, the relationship was also immortalized in the notorious Martin Brest disaster Gigli, released eight months after This Is Me, and that film's abysmal box office was the beginning of the end for the couple, whose engagement was called off in early 2004. Lopez rebounded quickly with a marriage to Latin pop singer Marc Anthony and with the new romance came an opportunity to restart her career -- hence Rebirth, the title of her fourth album. While she doesn't avoid the subject of her highly publicized romantic life, she does bury two seemingly confessional ballads at the end of the record not counting the album-concluding reprise of the opening single, "Get Right". Voyeurs may find interest in "He'll Be Back" a tune not written by Lopez, but a breakup song that certainly recalls the Bennifer saga and "Can't Believe This Is Me" -- a collaboration with her new husband that suggests Lopez may not have learned the lesson of Gigli -- but they're easily the worst moments on an album that's otherwise a sleek, sexy blast. Apart from those turgid ballads, Rebirth is a straight-ahead dance album, alternating between sweet, breezy pop tunes like the irresistible "Still Around" and hard-driving club tracks like the surprisingly heavy, infectious "Cherry Pie." Lopez may not be a flashy singer, but she's appealing on record precisely because she and her collaborators -- chief among them executive producer Cory Rooney -- know those limitations and present them in tuneful packages with big, exciting beats. Since it doesn't deviate from the blueprint she's followed on her first three albums, it's hard to call this record a literal creative rebirth, but song for song, Rebirth has more energy and better hooks than her other albums. It may not be deep, but it sure is fun -- and after the tumult of 2003 and 2004, Lopez sure does deserve to have a little fun.

    Jenny is pretty good.

    I Think this album is very good Jennifer sings some hot Rn,b stuff like Get it right and she works with Corey Rooney again with some help from Rich Harrison(Amerie, Beyoncé,Mary J Blige)Rodney Darkchild Jerkins&Freddie Jerkins, and her husband Marc Anthony produces 1 song a lovesong. Jennifer is a great singer but she hasn´t a big voice and it doesn´t matter she has a soft vocals and she can use it in songs like Get It Right, Hold You Down feat Fat Joe,Whatever You Wanna Do. This is a wonderful album and Jennifer is definely rebirth with this one. Tracklist. 1. Get It Right I love this song. 2. Step into My world this song is alright. 3.Hold You Down feat Fat joe Ilove this song. 4.Whatever You Wanna do catchy song like it much. 5.Cherry Pie not great don´t care about this song. 6.I Got You a fun sing along song. 7.Still Around like this song. 8.Ryde Or die 9.I Love 10. He´ll Be Back. 11. Can´t Believe This Is Me. A sweet lovesong produced by Marc Anthony Jennifer´s 3th husband. 12. Get right remix feat Faboulous. Most of the songs sounds the same but it is good anyway Jennifer´s 3 octaves voice shines through it. Producers. Cory Rooney, Rich Harrison, Rodney jerkins, Fred jerkins, Tim&Bob,Robert Big Bert smith,Big Boi,And Timbaland.

    OKAY AT BEST

    I thought the cd was boring...it's best song was 'Get Right' and the rest seemed almost lazy and definitely not the best Jen has come out with. Cherry Pie is a great taste of rockin' roll but the beat gets tiring easy. The 'Get Right' remix is great, other than that, if you are looking for more don't come looking for it here.

    Fairly good Come back for the Rebirth Kid!

    Let's get this right!!! Jenny lopez is not the greatest vocalist in the world, no one is saying that. However, with her limited vocal skills she sings "effectively" on each song. It's obvious the vocal training is coming in hand because her vocal is much more subtle and tackful than ever before. My favorite songs on the album are Cherry Pie, Get right and of course the sexy, spiritual jam STill around. I think Jennifer lopez has done a good job of reinventing her sound and keepin it fresh (unlike another Diva out who still sings dated material from William Orbit). If Jenny continues to grow artistically and lyrically I am sure she will have along and lasting career. GET RIGHT BABIES!!!

    Rebirth

    Rebirth is outstanding! Jennifer Lopez has done it again. She might not be the greatest vocalist but, she delivers with this album and comes with some hard-driving beats. The more notable tracks are: Get Right, Hold You Down, Whatever You Wanna Do, Cherry Pie and Ryde or Die.

    j-low

    This is perhaps the worst album Jennifer Lopez has recorded. It is not her style at all and overall just sounds bad.

    J.Lo's Best!

    Rebirth is definately the best album J.Lo has released to date! It starts with the upbeat "Get Right" single and maintains a pleasant and smooth feel through the entire 48 mins. Highlights would include Get Right, Step Into My World, Hold You Down, Cherry Pie, and (Can't Believe) This is Me has a great latin feel to it! This is definately a fun album and is a great start for female artists this year!

    Could have been better

    I was very disapointed with this cd. I know Jenny can do better than this. I think what is missing is the latin feel. I like her hiphop style songs and her latin feeling music. This cd could have been better.

    JLO does it again

    I LOVE this cd!!! I loved it even before it was released! The moment I heard the intoxicating intro to "get it right" on the radio, I knew to expect something great from Miss Lopez. I think that she does a great job at showing off her skills, however limited they may be. The beats are SICK, and I especially love the track "he'll be back' because it can relate to alot of us :) Check out "(cant believe)this is me" with the Santana-inspired guitar riff at the intro as well as her cute collabo with Fat joe"Hold U down". I dont care what she does in her personal life, this woman can do it all :) far better than her last album.

    Great!

    This is a good CD. I loved the song "Get Right". I also liked the Fabulous version, even though I'm not a fan of rap music. I have wanted this CD sooooo bad, for a long time. Even so, it's still a good CD. J.Lo is a great singer.

    Great CD

    This CD was really good. I loved the 2 versions of "Get Right". (Although I am not a fan of rap.) I wanted this CD for SO long, SO badly. J.Lo is a great singer! I also liked the fact that it had a DVD side, also.
