Old Ashlee, New Beat

Ashlee Simpson's long-awaited return to the music scene is finally here! And boy has Ashlee left a big splash. Not only has Ashlee channeled several 80s rock-er chicks successfully, she has managed to resurrect her old self within her new music. "Outta My Head" is Simpson's 80s throwback song where she flips off her critics and takes control of her life. "Boys" mirrors the 90s hit song "Lovefool" by the Cardigans, but Simpson makes it her own, with her breathy vocals. The catchy beat and smooth synth make this song a definite party starter. "Rulebreaker" is classic faux-punk rock Ashlee at it's finest. "No time for tears" is set atop an eerie-sounding beat, similar to something you would hear from the Eurythmics. A+ lyrics. "Little Miss Obsessive" is one of the strongest tracks, due to it's awesome lyrics, and guest vocals from Tom Higgenson. "Ragdoll" is another 80s throwback -- awesome pop hook. "Bittersweet World" is the title track, and a finger-snapper! This song fuses funky poprock with an alternative sound. "What I've Become" attacks paparazzi for intruding on Simpson's personal life and scrutinizing her every move. It fuses Timbaland's beats with Ashlee's inner rock chick. "Hot Stuff" is a new style for Ashlee, with more "rap-style" verses. She pokes fun at trampy girls, and shows a different side to Simpson. "Murder" features a guest rapper, Izza Kizza, and is a darker song, yet oddly catchy. Very metaphorical. "Never Dream Alone" was co-produced by Simpson herself, and shows tremendous growth as an artist (both lyric-wise, and vocally). Each song is a sure hit in it's own way, and with this record Simpson has proved her worth in the music biz. That's right, Ashlee is here to stay.

Ashlee's most musically diverse album yet

Ashlee Simpson returns with her most musically diverse album yet, "Bittersweet World". From "Outta My Head" to "Never Dream Alone" Ashlee keeps the party going non-stop. She channels the 80's on the opening track "Outta My Head", "Boys", and "Ragdoll", and returns to her pop-rock roots for "No Time For Tears" and "What I've Become". Tracks such as "Rulebreaker" and "Murder" are pure, danceable fun, with beats by the master Timbaland. "Hot Stuff" easily earns the best of the album with its quirky, silly lyrics and groovy dance beat. The ballads from the album "Little Miss Obsessive" and "Never Dream Alone", are great in both of their own ways. "Little Miss Obsessive" is an R&B rock ballad featuring vocals from Tom Higgeson and "Never Dream Alone" is a breathtaking piano ballad, composed of only piano, strings, vocals and guitar. Simpson even experiments in jazz and broadway during two of the standout tracks "Bittersweet World" and "Follow You Wherever You Go". As you listen to this album, you forget about the infamous SNL incident and the Orange Bowl incident and just indulge in the fun 80's music Ashlee has to offer. At this rate, Ashlee might just be here to stay.

Very Unique Album

This is something different from Ashlee, but I love it! It's so unique, there's not 1 album out there like it. Every track is great, no fillers. Not only is by far Ashlee's strongest album yet, it is the strongest of 2008 so far! BEST TRACKS: Hot Stuff, Boys and Ragdoll.
