Yes - we have reached an entirely new level of manufactured pop. While entertaining, mark my words American Idol will ruin music in the '00's. Not only do we have to suffer thru the winner's albums, now we'll be forced to watch that tall geeky red headed mutant croon his untalented can off on MuchMusic.
Bottom line, yeah her CD is actually really good, I bought it a few days ago. All the songs are solid. If you liked her on the show, you'll love her on CD.
Actually, I stopped buy Barnes & Noble and gave it a listen today. I little "poppier" than I was hoping for...I was hoping for a more adult sound from her: she definitely could pull that off. But, it sounds like a pretty good CD, so I will pick up a copy. Just wish that "New York State Of Mind" was on it!
