Christina Aguilera


Fourth studio album from the huge-selling pop / R&B diva

ADM rating[?]


UK Release date
  1. 8.0 |   The Times

    The sound of a woman having far too much fun to give a stuff what you think. Which, needless to say, compounds its allure
    Read Review

  2. 8.0 |   Independent on Sunday

    It’s overlong, narcissistic, often lyrically risible, and yet – potential hit for potential hit and commanding vocal for commanding vocal – nigh on irresistible
    Read Review

  3. 7.0 |   Rave Magazine

    It may not be the album some were hoping for, but Bi-On-Ic’s pretty good nonetheless
    Read Review

  4. 6.0 |   The Independent

    Much of the album is taken up with the kind of android-themed electro-R&B schtick that was done to death years ago by Janet Jackson and more recently by Britney Spears
    Read Review

  5. 6.0 |   The Guardian

    It all proves that Aguilera is a woman of many parts, which may be the point of this occasionally brilliant and brave, occasionally teeth-gritting and stupid album

  6. 6.0 |   Scotland on Sunday

    I Hate Boys adopts the attitude of a Glitter Band stomper, and a sassy electro grinder follows in My Girls, but both are blown away by the tongue-in-cheek posturing of Vanity

  7. 6.0 |   musicOMH

    Aguilera has a fantastic voice, which, when used properly, can carry a song that would have otherwise been fairly ordinary ... It's just unfortunate that either Aguilera or her label didn't have the balls to make a very brave and exciting pop record

  8. 6.0 |   Daily Telegraph

    It’s technically impressive stuff - and a relief to hear her ditch the warbling, if not the dirty talk, of old
    Read Review

  9. 6.0 |   The Observer

    A bit like Jaime Sommers, the original bionic woman, Bionic is very strong, but only in parts
    Read Review

  10. 6.0 |   Spin

    Aguilera still shines brightest as an Earthling schmaltz merchant, with string-soaked ballads aimed at her young son, lost loves, and insecure self
    Read Review

  11. 6.0 |   Sydney Morning Herald

    A perpetually busy, surprisingly varied disc but it's not until the final tracks, with the feisty bubblegum beat of I Hate Boys and electroclash collaboration with Le Tigre on My Girls, that it's openly pleasurable
    Read Review

  12. 5.0 |   Drowned In Sound

    The x-factor has gone. The daring single minded focus has apparently been lost
    Read Review

  13. 5.0 |   NME

    It feels as if Christina lost the courage of her convictions and, unsure of which album to make, went and made them all
    Read Review

  14. 5.0 |   Rolling Stone

    She's a lot more fun now that she's getting her Lady Gaga on instead. She goes for an electro makeover on Bionic, dressing in Gaga-style robot glam and cranking up the Auto-Tune
    Read Review

  15. 5.0 |   PopMatters

    Christina may very well have pleased her most important fan—herself
    Read Review

  16. 5.0 |   The Digital Fix

    As a 12-tracker or so, this could easily challenge Lady G's patchy album in the public's affection but as is, the good stuff has to work pretty hard to erase the bad stuff from the mind
    Read Review

  17. 4.0 |   No Ripcord

    As convincing as she attempts to sound, Bionic, does nothing to persuade authenticity
    Read Review

  18. 4.0 |   No Ripcord

    Aguilera re-emerges from a 4-year hiatus with troubling, narrowing sounds
    Read Review

  19. 4.0 |   The Scotsman

    It's left to MIA to salvage some originality with Elastic Love, an eccentric little electro-pop song which deploys office stationery items as a metaphor for a relationship. But it's really just the best of a disappointing bunch
    Read Review

  20. 4.0 |   Evening Standard

    Too often as the beats get heavy, she's let down by robotic vocals, shrill production and an overpowering lack of joy
    Read Review

  21. 4.0 |   The Sunday Times

    Only two songs here, Elastic Love and My Girls, are bracingly different and odd. That’s a double-sided single, not an album
    Read Review

  22. 2.2 |   Beats Per Minute

    If she was ever even considered the queen of pop, she surely lost the crown years ago, and this misstep just goes to show that she won’t be knocking Lady GaGa off the throne anytime soon
