Jennifer Lopez 'LOVE'
Universal Music Malaysia
In a nutshell: What better time to release a new album after her stint as a judge on 'American Idol' but now. Jennifer Lopez took some time off her busy schedule to release 'Love', an album dedicated to many of her loves: ahem, Diddy, Chris Judd and Ben Affleck.
Why we like it: There are lots of personal confession in this album, namely on tracks like 'One Love' where the lyrics point out to her very public affair with Diddy ('Took a shot with the bad boy from the block') and Ben Affleck ('Went nowhere but kept the ring'). Some of her catchy tunes like 'Invading My Mind' and 'I'm Into You', also deserve a shout-out as they make us want to heat up the dancefloor.
Why we don't: We're so-so on this one: there are hints of sexy island vibes and up-tempo tracks which could have made 'Love' the dance album it was meant to be. Right now, some of the tracks feel like they were just leftovers from 'This is Me... Then' hit album.
Verdict: Besides the lifeless vocals on 'On The Floor', J.Lo soars in other tracks like 'Starting Over' and '(What is) LOVE?' Give this album a spin and recollect those memories you had about the diva throughout her journey of many loves.
