Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that fans will discover that boy band graduates (or at least this one) think about sex -- a lot! This album will be fine for some teens, perhaps a little much for others. Take a look at the lyrics on a site like lyrics.com and decide if this is okay for your teen.
What's the story?
SCHIZOPHRENIC may not be very exciting or innovative, but it reveals the more mature, evolving side of a beloved boy-band member's personality, and it's a lot of fun for older teens.
Is it any good?
The first track, "Some Girls (Dance With Women)," is a terrific dance song with a homoerotic twist: The girls are all dancing together and this guy wants to join the fun. It's sexy with a refreshing shot of longing. The rest of the CD is sexy too, with a couple of pretty explicit moments here and there. This may come as a surprise to underage NSYNC fans who expect a sappier brand of romantic pop from the boy band veteran.
Justin Timberlake was the "cute one" in NSYNC, but JC Chavez makes an effort to maintain his "hot one" persona on this album with some very sexy lyrics. He also puts on a lively and very danceable show with energetic rhythm tracks and a "let's not take ourselves too seriously" sense of fun. The strongest tracks are the most danceable, featuring dynamic musicianship and enthusiastic vocal performances.

Families can talk about how this more mature album compares with the band's earlier albums. How do you like this "grown-up" version?
