New American Idol CD not a disappointment

by Katherine Seacrest on 7/8/2003

Well, they're back, and they're not stopping these promo items until we stop buying them! But I'll be honest, I'm a total slave for reality TV, and American Idol is no exception. But I'd have to say that their re-occuring seasons and CDs lack variety. Nevertheless, I listened to this CD front to back two times straight without getting sick of a single song. Although disappointed that the first woman voted off never got a track (what was her name again?), I think the company made wise decisions on their song selection. So to make a long story short, if you liked the first CD, or even American Idol at all, you will have a blast with the new American Idol CD Read More

The wildly successful TV show AMERICAN IDOL continues to be a source of material for hit albums. After the initial AMERICAN IDOL disc, and the solo debut of IDOL winner Kelly Clarkson, you'd think that might be the end of the story. What should come sauntering along to prove you wrong but the SEASON 2 disc, featuring another round of well-scrubbed, perfectly pitched young vocalists bent on winning the hearts and ears of the US, whether you're watching them on TV or just listening to them on the stereo or radio.
There's a theme to this collection: classic love songs. Accordingly, Ruben Studdard delivers an impassioned version of the Carpenters' "Superstar," Kimberly Caldwell lays her sensuous pipes on the Roberta Flack hit "Killing Me Softly," and Corey Clark takes a trip into '80s power-ballad territory with a full-bore take on Journey's lighters-aloft smash "Open Arms." At first listen, it's hard to figure where the bonus cut, Lee Greenwood's country flag-waver "God Bless the U.S.A." fits into the concept, but that's presumably where the "American" part of the show's name comes in.
