Kelly being Kelly,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Stronger (Audio CD)
This album is so full of up-tempo songs and so short on surprises. I love Kelly's voice and whilst her songs are never the most imaginative ever to grace a record, she knows her subject matter and she does Kelly Clarkson better than anyone else trying to do Kelly Clarkson. That, to some people, could be a negative - but to me it's just some more of the type of songs I've come to love and expect from her.
The clear and standout singles from this album are put upfront for all to hear. There are some songs later on that seem to be continuations or reflections of the other ones, for example Mr Know It All has a mirror in You Can't Win, both being songs about how some people think they know someone but they really don't. There are also a few cringeworthy lyrics, never more so obvious than on the track Einstein ("dumb plus dumb equals you"... I mean, what!?).
Those headlining singles aside, there's not much in this album for those who don't already know and love Kelly Clarkson. As a fan, I'm definitely not disappointed but recognise a lack of originality here could mean others won't share my opinion.
