BareNaked

Jennifer Love Hewitt has no intention of being an actress-with-a-pop-record joke. Her mistake, because this faux-rock record (her fourth) is the funniest thing since Ravyn-Symone's Here's to New Dreams. Who does this broad think she is? Well, lots of people: Gwen Stefani on the almost-syncopated "Can I Go Now," Celine Dion on "You," Sheryl Crow or Meredith Brooks (who produced) everywhere else. Hewitt has a wee little voice and a fondness for the word bay-bhay, and she wails and growls through this mellow Southern California roadhouse rock like the best karaoke singer in the joint. The one about a young girl tryin' to make her dreams come true on "Avenue of the Stars" must be heard to be believed.
