5.0 out of 5 stars The one Disney starlet that really has talent., 8 May 2009
This review is from: Don't Forget (Audio CD)
OK, Miley Cyrus has connections in the music business and Selena Gomez is really pretty, but Demi Lovato is the only Disney starlet of this generation to have talent. She writes her own songs, though on this album 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!), but still she did a lot and you can see that she is singing her own songs, it's just more natural. She also has a voice, which she has shown (and stunned the audience) some time ago singing the US Nationa Anthem at an important sporting event. Here she doesn't use it all that much (though more on the Platinum Edition!) but you can still she that she's got it. And last but not least, this is the only Disney star album that can really be called pop-rock with emphasis on the rock part. We see some nice guitar playing and not the usual pop-dance eletronics or the newly popular country-styling.

"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.
