Jennifer Lopez This Is Me... Then (Sony) Rating: NN Rating: NN
It's swell that Jennifer Lopez believes she's found Mr. Right again, but it's expecting a lot of her audience to stomach an entire album of her pledging undying love for Ben Affleck. The fact that each mid-tempo ballad is delivered in the same sing/rap style Lopez has developed to get around the fact that she still can't carry a tune just makes the repeated declarations of "I love you, I need you," etc, that much more trying. OK, we get it -- enough already. Note: the CD package includes numerous photos of J-Lo in various states of undress, along with a sample of her Glow perfume.
