Ok, here's a perspective from a 42 year old man, now I have bought a lot of music,
everything from Blondie and Duran Duran to Placebo and Metallica, so you can see I have a fairly eclectic "if it's good then I like it" attitude towards music.
but then once in a while something amazing happens, along comes a new artist, seemingly out of the blue, that stops you in your tracks, I happened to stumble across "behind these hazel eyes' on some saturday morning kids show, "H0ly Cr@p what was that!"
I was instantly hooked, bought Breakaway that same day, what an amazing experience listening to that album for the first time ;)
I could list why I love this song or that song individually but that has been done here many times before,
let me just say in simple terms, this is the best album I own, out of several hundred!
Kelly Clarkson is not only naturally talented, but you can hear the dedication, the passion and the love for her craft as she wrings every ounce of emotion out of this outstanding album,
if you love good music of any genre, then there's a good chance you would love this too,
