Joan Anderman of Boston Daily Globe reviewed Christina Aguilera and Justin Timberlake’s Justified and Stripped Tour stop at FleetCenter on Tuesday night (August 5). She said of the *NSYNC star, “For all his estimable polish and well-learned licks, Timberlake in the end came off as candy — a semihip pop tart whose glowing resume has more to do with good taste and good luck than artistic depth and breadth.” As for Aguilera, she added, “This girl can sing. She sings with God-given pipes and real heart. It’s a heart that’s been broken, and not by a high-school sweetheart. Beneath the soft-porn veneer ‘Stripped’ is a revealing chronicle of an abusive childhood and a remarkably clear-eyed portrait of an artist, one who has the talent and fortitude to transcend whatever life and music-handlers toss her way.”
