Another American Idol Launch

This morning I got to hear the first single from the recent American Idol winner, Jordin Sparks.

I'm a little disappointed, because Sparks has a nice, powerful voice, but I feel as though the label is going the "safe route" with her release. It's good, but I don't think it's what she could be doing with that voice. It's Pop, has the standard beat, but it has that synthesizer sound. I don't think Sparks is breaking any new ground here. It's not bad. And that's a shame, someone of her talent should not be going for "not bad".

  1. Your description was perfect and I agree w/ your sentiments exactly. See? Sometimes I do agree with ya! ; )


  2. Her voice was so pretty... Song was way too overworked, how sad...

    Well, give her a few years, see what happens. Music might grow to meet her voice.



I love comments. I won't lie about that!
