JC Chasez Schizophrenic (Jive) Rating: NNN
Wow, the title of this record is stupid. Who came up with that? But it's a bit fitting, I guess. JC Chasez (aka the other guy from *NSYNC) wanders genre-wise, playing with club dance things from the acceptable to the awfully cheesy, running through Mich-ael Jackson at his 80s prime, Prince-style wailings and Faith-era George Michael. Schizophrenic is certainly not a total write-off, and there are some all right tracks , like the early-era Michael Jackson-meets-Stevie Wonder She Got Me. Chasez has some strengths when he tends toward Motown, but he really should think about narrowing his focus and figuring out what he's good at.
