'Sense of Terrible Foreboding'
The UK’s Guardian newspaper is none too impressed with Paris Hilton’s debut album. “She sounds both distracted and bored stiff, as if making an album is keeping her from the more serious business of standing around a nightclub in a pair of really enormous sunglasses,” writes Alexis Petridis. Paris apparently told the Sunday Times (children’s section, no less) that she is qualified to be a singer because she hears music every day. Exactly. “Listening to her sing Rod Stewart's Do Ya Think I'm Sexy, you are gripped by the fear that civilization as we know it is doomed and that brimstone is going to start raining from the sky any minute,” according to the Guardian. “It doesn't, but a sense of terrible foreboding is further stoked by the sleeve notes, which make reference to "all my albums to come.” You can apparently access the entire album via AOL Music, but my computer is perhaps having a psychic moment and not allowing me to connect.
