GALLERY: Lindsay looks a lot better than she sounds. See for yourselfNot much can be said about a record that makes even Ashlee Simpson sound like a bona fide pop diva. Being in the limelight and trying to live an ordinary life never sounded so drab.
Lindsay Lohan is not one of the greatest actresses around. Neither is she a great singer by this album's evidence. Although she can hold a note, her debut album is not something to rave about - it's kinda like Britney when she first came out. Only not as catchy.
In fairness, tracks that actually warranted a bit of interest were "Symptoms Of You", "Something I Never Had" and "Over". The album features her single "Rumors" as the bonus track.
Another highlight of her album is the CD cover. She is a bit of a looker and the images on the cover are much more enjoyable to look at than the CD is to hear. She also co-writes most of the tracks and the lyrics seem to be suited to her personal situation - living in the public eye at a young age.
What the album does prove is that Lohan has what it takes to compete with all the other young pop superstars in the scene right now; especially those who think that having their own album is the next feather in the cap of teenage stardom.
If you're a Lindsay Lohan fan, you'll probably find the album not too bad. It features plenty of grunting and teen tantrums - think a candyfloss version of Avril Lavigne. If you don't like her movies that much, you won't enjoy Lohan's CD any more than a day at the dentist's. Let's just hope this was her first and last album attempt.
