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,

Music snobs tend to deride anything connected with "American Idol", but Clarkson is one Idol winner that may prove them all wrong, and if this CD is an indication, she will rise above the apparently restrictive contracts and what is known as "cheesy aura" of the show; all things considered, this CD is a fine effort, and I thoroughly enjoyed the many times I listened to this album in order to give it a fair review, and to its credit, it did not stale, but became better with each hearing.
Kelly has a pleasing smokiness to her voice, and a very appealing vibrato; the overall quality of the material is good, and Kelly co-wrote 6 of the 12 tracks (# 3, 4, 6, 7, 8 and 11). "Addicted" is a favorite, with its slight echo of the Bond film song "The World is Not Enough" by Garbage, and "Beautiful Disaster", appreciated for the simplicity of its solo piano accompaniment.
Produced by Clive Davis, my preference would be for less; Kelly's voice doesn't need the distraction of over-production like many of her contemporaries do, and she would shine more with pared down arrangements, as the live concert track of "Beautiful Disaster" proves.
This CD is a solid performance from a singer that I believe will grow and be with us for many years to come, with an expanding audience and credibility, even among the music snobs. The sound is excellent and total playing time is 44'47.

this album is excellant. i'm usually an urban lover but i heard this album and i was impressed by the 'adult' lyrics and the rocky (but not heavy) music. it's kind of like a p!nk album but less controversial lol.

all in all, kelly clarkson could of gone down the teen pop idol direction and quite frankly ruined her career whilst doing so but with this album im sure she'll be sticking around a bit longer and i look forward to her next release!

I think I will just start by saying that this album deserves way more than 5 stars!

This album is quite simply amazing and is one of the best albums this millenium. I originally bought it purely for the singles that had been released of it such as 'Since U Been Gone' and 'Behind These Hazel Eyes' and initially did not bother to listen to it all the way through. Then I heard Kelly's new single at the time which was 'Because of You' and I realised that I should probably listen to the whole album and I'm so glad I did. Kelly's voice is outstanding and unlike her first album which I have since listened to and is rather disappointing, this album allows Kelly to be herself - and herself is clearly not a bubble-gum pop princess. It seems as though Kelly just did what she was told on her first album following her American Idol win, and then this album she seems to have made it clear that that was not the direction she wants to go in. There are some really rocky undertones, but these really suit Kelly's voice as it is so powerful and her range is amazing.

Track 1 - "Breakaway" - Quite a gentle start to the album, quite a ballad style, but the underlying rock influences are there which sets up the album nicely. Its a song about taking that first step in to something unknown and if that means taking you away from family and loved ones, it does not mean that you stop caring about them.

Track 2 - "Since U Been Gone" - Everyone knows this one - very rocky and a bit of a shocker for Kelly's fans when it was first released as she sheds her 'poppy' image. The songs about breaking up with someone and it turning out to be the best thing that could have happened.

Track 3 - "Behind These Hazel Eyes" - Again another rocky one that was written by Avril Lavigne.

Heaven help me, why do I like this album? Ordinarily I'm a metalhead, I listen to Metallica, In Flames, Trivium and the like. But I like Kelly Clarkson. I'm disturbing myself. Tracks like 'Since U Been Gone' are sung with power behind them, and there is remarkable emotion injected into 'Behind These Hazel Eyes'. Go on rockers. Admit it. You love it really.
