Christina Aguilera - Keeps Gettin' Better: A Decade of Hits (Review)


Nov 28 2008, 16:16

The one who turned out much saner than that other one is back with her greatest hits.
I absolutely love Christina Aguilera! She is such a amazing and versatile artist. What genre of music can't she do? That's what sets her apart from the others. There's actual vocal and artistic talent here. I actually bought the DELUXE edition of this album. For $13, it was a steal. 10 of her biggest hits, 4 new ones and her music videos. I really enjoyed most of them all and it really reminds you of why you fell in love with her. She's a fearless and colorful character. "Dynamite" was probably my favorite song off the album and I have to agree with almost everybody that it would've been a better first single. "Keeps Gettin' Better" would have been best left out of the album. It was clearly created both to promote the concept of the greatest hits album and to stand as a song representing for strong women in relationships, but it's too much the former and not enough of the latter....

While this greatest hits album is a bit premature (considering that Christina only has three full-fledged albums under her belt), it does provide some interesting new work to listen to. While the new songs fit into their intended genre very well, they could easily have been performed just as convincingly by someone of far lesser talents. In fact, there is sometimes so much manipulation of Christina's voice that it's anyone's guess as to who is singing. And that's the problem. The point of listening to Christina Aguilera is her voice. It's what defines her. It's the very reason she has a legion of fans. What's even more odd is that Linda Perry produced all four of these new songs, and yet she is the one who coached Aguilera to use her voice to its greatest potential during their sessions recording for the Stripped and Back to Basics albums. Hopefully, her reported upcoming "futuristic" album will allow her to accomplish her goal, yet retain the rich voice she is known and loved for.

    She is an amazing singer, I absolutely lover her, and she's so differnt to the rest of vocalists, she can put on an amazing visual show like VMA's 08, or do BEAUTIFUL a capella :) Hopefully, her reported upcoming "futuristic" album will allow her to accomplish her goal, yet retain the rich voice she is known and loved for.
