CD Review: Allison Iraheta - Just Like You

This is the 2009 debut album from the American Idol finalist.
Her first CD is a good start but Iraheta shows less promise as a pop artist than a runner-up on one of America’s most prominent reality shows.
There is nothing that this album does that sets it apart from anything else pop out there.
Her first single “Friday I’ll Be Over U” is not bad but nothing spectacular.
Hopefully her second album will show improvement!

CD Review: Bon Jovi - The Circle

Bon Jovi is back! I wasn't sure what to expect from this album when I bought it. The album starts with a highly energetic "We weren't meant to follow" and has some really good tracks that follow. I have listened to it a few times now and it feel like they have gone back to their roots with this album after flirting with the Country scene with "Lost Highway". Their sound is still truly unique and I believe it always will be. I think this CD is true to the Bon Jovi vision and incorporates current themes into their music. I must say this, I would classify this more as an "Easy Listening" album than a Rock album.
I guess in their old age they need to tone it down a bit. Still a decent buy!

6 out of 10 stars
