VINE VOICEon 12 March 2007
McPhee didn't win American Idol, but that didn't stop an outbreak of "McPheever" and the anticipation for her debut album offering.

The album seems a mixed bunch of slower, Mariah Carey moments and more up-beat, R'n'B pop moments, a move which seems calculated to both capitalise on her Idol popularity and take steps to create a new identity for herself at the same time. It's telling as well that there are undoubted highlights from both sides of that equation.

Particularly effective from the ballad side of things are Home and Ordinary World. Both display that McPhee has a voice worth listening to and are genuinely affecting songs. On the other side of things Open Toes, as cheesy as it is, is as good as anything Beyonce could come up (and is the kind of thing Britney's new album is calling out for) and if Joss Stone did something as souful as Love Story perhaps I wouldn't hate her as much. Then there is even a track like Neglected, which falls somewhere between the two stools but still manages to be a catchy tune, and has that all-important McPhee co-writing credit.

Of course she can't quite deliver a full album of great quality. There are too many by-the-manual numbers, such as Dangerous, which fail to spark and there is that nagging feeling that as of yet, McPhee hasn't got a "sound" to call her own. Still, as a debut album from a reality TV star goes, this is an enjoyable experience and proof that with the right breaks, Katherine McPhee might just be in it for the long-term.

I was a huge fan of McPhee during her run on American Idol and I am in love with this album. There is a great mix of different types of songs which show how talented and versatile Kat is. She is the total package; amazing voice, stunning looks, and great personality. Kat will most definitely be one of the most successfull contests of Idol and she is already on her way with this fantastic debut album.

My favourite tracks are; the beautiful heart warming ballads "home" and "ordinary world".....also the last three tracks stand out and in their own way "Better of alone", "neglected" and "Everwhere I go". Im also a fan of the club bangers....."open toes" and "do what you do." The rest of the tracks are pretty decent also like the first single "over it."

Im not the greatest fan of tv show stars but Katherine Mcphee has always had talent... This album is absolutely fantastic and showcases her voice to great lengths. There are upbeat songs like 'Dangerous', 'Open Toes', 'Love Story', slower ones 'Such as Better off alone' and 'Everywhere i go'. Its absolutely fantasic and i will preach that fact... A must buy for ppl with taste it music!!!
