  • In the titles of both her debut, ON THE 6 (as in the NYC subway to the Bronx), and her 2002 release, THIS IS ME...THEN, Jennifer Lopez makes the assertion that in spite of her mega-successful movie career and her high profile, paparazzi-fodder dating life (from Puff Daddy to Ben Affleck), she is still just "Jenny from the Block," as this album's first single proclaims; a simple girl from the Bronx. That your average non-movie-star from the Bronx could probably not obtain a record deal so readily is a moot point, since Lopez can indeed sing and is undeniably a presence both visually and sonically.
  • Despite the unshakeable dance bounce of the aforementioned single, most of the record grooves with an almost '70s-sounding mellow vibe, including a faithful cover of Carly Simon's 1978 hit "You Belong to Me." Perhaps this smoothness is due to the one facet of J-Lo that belies her larger-than-life mystique; the love she wears on her sleeve. Even if you'd taken lodging in a cave during 2002, her courtship with fellow movie star Ben Affleck is apparent on this record from the self-explanatory "Dear Ben" to the glow in love songs like "The One."
Professional Reviews
Entertainment Weekly (12/13/02, pp.79-80) - "...A spacious-sounding affair that eschews the heavy-handed production that marred her first two efforts; the vibe is more Minnie Riperton than Missy Elliot..." - Rating: B
