All I Ever Wanted is the fourth album from American songstress Kelly Clarkson. Since winning TV talent show American Idol in 2002, Clarkson has gone from strength to strength and continues to flourish and develop her style. Taking influence from the likes of Garbage, The Killers and The Eurythmics as well as other pop contemporaries, All I Ever Wanted is a superb follow-up to 2007's My December. Singles include the US number one "My Life Would Suck Without You".
It's difficult to sit on the fence when it comes to Multi-platinum pop rock Princess Kelly Clarkson. Her distinctive, raspy, angst-ridden vocal is akin to the Anastasias and Pinks of the pop world. With lungs of steel and a ballsy delivery, her style is rock-tinged pop. Her fourth album won't disappoint hardcore fans but is unlikely to garner new listeners.
Opening with catchy, punchy, full-throttle hit, My Life Would Suck Without You, the first ever American Idol winner sets the tone with her signature vocal acrobatics. The collaboration with infamous producers/songwriters, Dr. Luke (Britney Spears, Avril Lavigne) and Max Martin (Backstreet Boys, *NYSNC) was clearly a wise move.
Moving on to I Do Not Hook Up, Clarkson comes over all self-righteous as she chastises her lover for getting high. Still, it's good to know this role model hasn't taken a page out of Amy Winehouse's self-destructive book.
The Sam Watters-produced Cry gleams from the rest of the pack with its beautiful guitar riffs and gushing melodies. Clarkson is the cherry on the cake of this future hit. This more mature sound suits Kelly, as does the sophisticated album title track: a grown up move for the American star.
A giant mistake is made when Clarkson delves in to punk/thrash territory on Whyyawannabringmedown- purists will despair and KC fans will be perplexed. Equally as annoying, yet utterly different is I Want You - a mindless, cartoonish pop fantasy that does nothing for Clarkson's vocal range.
The cash cow that is Kelly Clarkson finishes with a bang, however, as The Day We Fell Apart cements exactly why this young Texan has sold so many records. This brilliant slice of pop is much like its performer: brimming with all the right ingredients needed to be a hit. What it all boils down to, however, is taste. --Elle J Small

Working with a whole host of renowned producers including Ryan Tedder, Howard Benson and Max Martin, the result is Kelly's strongest album, puzzling then why at the time of writing (June 2010) this is her only album not to achieve a platinum certification in the US.
All that matters of course very little, as "All I Ever Wanted" is full of big choruses and catchy melodies, lead single "My Life Would Suck Without You" shows us the way, before "I Do Not Hook Up" and "Don't Let Me Stop You" continue on the same vein. (The latter should have been a single by the way)
Ballad wise Kelly's hits the nail on the head, "Cry" could make you do exactly that, "Save You" provides a moment of reflection, before her best song shows up in "Already Gone."
On the subject of "Already Gone," it is by far and away the best track on "All I Ever Wanted," and in my opinion her best track across all four albums. (Regularly makes it into my iPod's top 25 most played songs!)
If you found yourself somewhat disappointed with "My December" then I suggest you pick up a copy of "All I Ever Wanted" and listen with an open mind. The endearing result is a pop record that sits amongst the best of 2009.
New single My Life Would Suck Without You has already hit the top spot on the Billboard charts, and looks likely to beat Taylor Swift to number one in this weeks chart battle of the American superstars. The opening chords sound suspiciously like Since U Been Gone, but once you shake off the feeling of déjà vu it becomes apparent that Kelly has found her stride again and provides her best single since her aforementioned worldwide smash. I Do Not Hook Up and Don't Let Me Stop You are great up tempo numbers with catchy choruses and Kelly asserting her feisty side. I Do Not Hook Up affirms her moral nature, wanting to be wined and dined by her partners and not used a cheap thrill. Don't Let Me Stop You is another man bashing riot, and a sure fire single choice with a power chorus about cutting a wandering boyfriend loose.
Cry and Already Gone are great ballads with stunning vocals (especially in the former) that blow the listener away, which just makes her success even more of a revelation coming from complete obscurity, and nullifies the criticism of reality shows of never finding talent.Read more ›
Kelly was amazing singing live on American Idol the other day, and has my respect for that. Other past contestants have come on before and mimed, but she really showed everyone why she was the first and still is the best of the American Idol winners.
success on American Idol ?
That she is still with us is perhaps evidence to support
the view that she may well be in it for the long haul.
'All I Ever Wanted', her fourth studio album, is a credible
and creditable affair. Highs and lows, to be sure but more
than enough to engage our attention from start to finish.
Ms Clarkson has a fine voice. It possesses focus, power and a
considerable capacity for dynamic and emotional expression.
We are in rockchick territory here and our heroine easily
keeps pace with Ms Perry ( two of her castoffs can, in fact,
be found here in 'I Do Not Hook Up, and 'Long Shot' ); Ms Pink;
Ms Lavigne; Ms Cyrus ( almost too close for comfort on
'If I Can't Have You', whose defining riff bears more than a
little resemblance to Ms Cyrus' recent release 'Fly On The Wall')
and even - don't laugh - Ms Sarkisian ( Cher to we mere mortals )
in certain moments.
Credits for co-authorship would appear to confirm a not insignificant
ability to write, as well as sing. In fact 'Already Gone' ( despite
a couple of badly clanging rhymes ) is a very fine song indeed.
'My Life Would Suck Without You', 'Don't Let Me Stop You',
'Impossible' and the cutesy 'I Want You' all rock out with
good grace and considerable energy.
'Whyyawannabringmedown', however, is an absolute stinker !
The album's highpoint, however, can be found in her rendition
of Ms Noble's power ballad 'If No One Will Listen'.
There are a few rough edges in the voice which make it
somehow more believable.
Maturity of vision combined with vulnerability make this
a world class performance.Read more ›
