Album Review

If you didn’t pay close attention to American Idol Season 8, you can be forgiven for thinking that Kris Allen came in second to Adam Lambert. After all, Lambert is the one who grabbed all the headlines and magazine covers, while Allen plugged along as the cute, safe alternative to the self-styled glamazon, which was enough for him to take the crown, if not enough to create much excitement. Then again, Kris Allen isn’t about excitement, he’s about comfort, something that’s plainly evident on his immaculate eponymous debut, an album every bit as unexpected as his name. Allen possess an easy touch, makign already pleasant surroundings a touch friendlier. Kris pens almost all of the 12 songs here (the exceptions being “Live Like We’re Dying,” “Written All Over My Face,” “The Truth” ), which unifies the album. Unhip it may be by design, but at least Kris Allen delivers the goods: it’s tuneful and likeable, melodic enough to merit a close listen, Rovi

Customer Reviews

Creative, Original, and Amazing!!

This album is very creative!! Every song deals with a problem we face in life and he delivers the message with a powerful voice!! No wonder he won American Idol! Highly Recommended!!

great songwriter

I was skeptical this album would be good all the way through, but it is. Kris already writes really good songs, which sets him apart from most AI winners. He didn't need to bring in heavyweight writers from Sweden or Hollywood to help him make a great debut album. Looking forward to listening to it over and over.

Mediocre at best

I do like Kris but there is nothing in this album that sets him apart from other singers. It's my opinion that this album will not do well in sales.

Pitted against powerhouse vocalist Adam Lambert during the show's finale, Allen emphasized his wide-ranging abilities as a musician, playing piano during a cover of "Ain't No Sunshine" and strumming the guitar...
