Trained as a gospel singer, Jessica Simpson long ago learned subtlety was at direct odds with testifying. Judging by Skin, her third album, it's a lesson she's still working through. Her powerful voice is done a disservice by insipid songwriting and arrangements — as on the loathsome club track "Forbidden Fruit" and the uncomfortably stately ballad "You Don't Have to Let Go" — that consistently get in the way of her pipes.
