Vanessa has returned with her sophomore album, Identified. After almost two years since her first album, V, this album doesn't live up to the expectations I had in mind...
I have read various reviews about this album and almost all of them say that opener, Last night, is 'terrible';'the worst things I've ever heard'; or 'a grower'. However for me, Last Night is probably my favourite song on this album. Last Night is a more grown-up sound from Vanessa and is very promising.
However when the next few songs kick in, my views change on this album...
Ballads such as Don't Ask Why and Gone With The Wind prove that this is where Vanessa is strongest. Don't Ask Why is definitely the Say OK of the album.
First Bad Habbit is another new style from Vanessa, which a great pop song that will make you just want to get up and dance!
Sneakernight, the first single from Identified ... well... I was not a fan of it when I first heard it... however it is very catchy and will end up being one of your 25 Most played on your iPod.
Best Song(s): Last Night, First Bad Habit, Sneakernight
Worst Song(s): Party On The Moon, Amazed
Overall : An average effort Vanessa has put in here, although there are some very good songs, Vanessa's vocal's have been made to seem very weak with over-synthisised computer-style vocals.
A must for a number-one Vanessa Hudgens fan, and anyone who enjoys teen-pop.
