"she did have help as she admits that what she writes is more hard rock and such an album wouldn't sell - at least under a Disney label (we're still waiting for it Demi!)" - Listen to a couple of songs by Breaking Benjamin; a Hollywood Records (Disney) artist who's main genre is Hard Rock/Metal. I agree with you, Demi Lovato is a great, talented musician and some heavier stuff would be greatly appreciated from her in the future; I just wanted to point out that the record label itself isn't really restricting her. It's the target audience, which has been chosen by Disney in an attempt to make her another Miley Cyrus (I'm not even going to go there) loved by kids between the ages of 4 and 11, who don't know any better. Since Demi can be seen on Disney Channel's Sonny with a Chance and in Camp Rock (both of which are aimed at young audiences) it influences her productions as a singer and musician, as the people who watch these shows will be the ones buying the albums in the long run.
Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that I think the album is really good, however I feel that Demi is somewhat limited with these songs.
