One Love is one CD you don't wanna miss!

by Chris Eberlein on 8/8/2004

Kimberley Locke's debut One Love is a pleasant combination of adult pop, R&B and rock music genres. Breakout hit "8th World Wonder" is definitely the best single from any of the American Idol-ers and showcases both K.Lo's powerful chops and musical potential. Sure, "Wrong" is a blatant-ripoff of season one's toothy winner Kelly Clarkson's "Miss Indepdent" as well as Locke's "Before" ("I never lived before, I never felt before..." sound like something you've already heard? Listen to Clarkson's "Before Your Love" and you'll find about the same chorus lyrics), but One Love's other adult contemporary tracks are good enough to pull this album through to be one of those rare full-listen (and satisfying) records.

One of the greatest attributes of the reality-TV series AMERICAN IDOL is that it's positively awash in a camaraderie and inclusiveness. Yes, the show is clearly a hard-fought contest, and judge Simon Cowell's snarky dismissal of rejects is a notable feature, but what's endearing about IDOL is the way that the hopeful singers band together and support each other, even as the nation rallies behind their favorites. In 2003, while Ruben Studdard and Clay Aiken's chummy rivalry was foremost in the national consciousness, Kimberley Locke quietly sang her heart out and almost knocked one of those front-runners from the lead, ultimately settling for third place.
However, third place was no dummy prize, as singing every week turned enough ears to garner Locke's own major-label release. ONE LOVE is a treasure trove of instantly engaging pop and rousing melodies that should continue AMERICAN IDOL's success as a launching ground for future stars. Locke possesses a flexible voice and an indomitable spirit that breathes life into peppy, hooky numbers such as "8th World Wonder," and it doesn't hurt when Aiken drops by for the ballad "Without You." On this impressive debut of R&B-tinged pop, Locke overcomes her reality-TV-casualty status to show that she's a performer to watch.
