Album Review

She was doing it before Britney Spears, and she was doing it better. Teen princess Jennifer Love Hewitt attained a level of popularity based predominantly on her immensely likeable girl-next-door appeal. But before she became a household name with TV's Party of Five and as the heroine of the I Know What You did Last Summer movies, she was recording albums. This eponymous CD was her second American release, and though she poses no threat to the Celine Dions and the Lorrie Morgans of the world, her feathery light voice is more soulful than you'd imagine. The tracks on this album are all R&B-flavored pop and adult contemporary, and, though they're slickly produced, they complement Hewitt instead of overpowering her. Yes, most of the lyrics are the usual teen odes to love, loss, and longing, but there's a maturity to them as well that transcends most cookie-cutter pop. On "I Always Was Your Girl," she sings "You put your friends through hell/that's why we get along so well," obviously not capitalizing on the "nice" girl image she was on the cusp of practically owning; on "Cool With You," she pines to right a relationship so that all can be cool again; and on "It's Good to Know I'm Alive" from the House Arrest soundtrack (in which she starred) she sings with such joy and abandon, you'll want to sing along, too. Depending on your threshold for harmless, white-bread teen pop, this album could be a welcome addition to your collection because, frankly, it makes you like her even more than her image did in the first place.

Customer Reviews

ハリウッド・セレブ あなどれない歌声

ジェニファー・ラヴ・ヒューイット、この名前を見たとき「えっ!」と思った。
TV版ゴースト、ラストサマー・シリーズ、ハートブレイカー、タキシードに出演した、あのハリウッド・スター、ジェニファー
・ラヴ・・・その人なのだが、まさかシンガーもやっているとは思わなかった。

このアルバムは1996年9月発表ということなので、彼女が17歳くらいの時にリリースしたようだが、これが1stではなく
既に2枚のアルバムを出していて、実は3作目に当たる。

5歳からオリジナルの曲を地元のダンスホールで歌っていたというから、キャリアは女優業より長いことになる。
肝心のサウンドだが、結構聴ける・・・などと書いては失礼だが、幼い頃から歌っているだけあって、アイドルポップとは
一線を画す立派なボーカルアルバムに仕上がっている。

R&B調の曲が多く、彼女だということを知らない人が聴いても充分通用するチャーミングな歌声だ。
イチオシは M-2 No Ordinary Love。少し抑えた感じのドラマティックなバラード・ナンバーで聴き応えがある。

最近は本業が忙しく、あまり歌に力は入れていないようだが、新譜が出たら聴いてみたい。
