Album Review

When It Happens All the Time was released, Megan Hilty was best known for her showstopping turns in Broadway productions including Wicked and 9 to 5: The Musical, as well as her role as Ivy Lynn on NBC's musical-within-a-musical TV series Smash. However, the songs she chose for her debut album weren't show tunes or standards, they were contemporary pop with a capital P: a glance at the liner notes reveals songwriting credits for Ne-Yo, Carrie Underwood, and Glen Ballard. Highlights include the airy "Hopin'," the Ne-Yo and Underwood-penned "Walk Away," and the single "No Cure," which is one of the best examples of when this album gets the balance of intimacy and polish right. "Wise Up" is another standout, with Aimee Mann's subtle songwriting allowing Hilty to deliver one of the album's most sophisticated vocal performances. As always, Hilty is a dynamic performer with a beautiful voice, and "Dare You to Move" and "Be a Man" showcase her powerhouse vocals particularly well.

Customer Reviews

Love. Her.

Megan Hilty is one of those hidden gems of the music world. Her voice is incredible and she sings with such passion. Buy this album!!!!

A Solid Effort

Megan's debut album seems to fall somewhere between Adult Contemporary and Soft Rock. While this direction may shock some of her Broadway devoted fans, the album itself proves to be an enjoyable listen. Don't expect the soaring ballads and jazzy uptempo numbers that give her character on "Smash" such magnestism; instead, you will find slow burning melodies with well crafted lyrics. Of course, with a voice like Hilty's every word is filled with meaning and the singer seems truly passionate about the material. The only drawback here may be that the songs don't allow Megan to showcase her powerhouse vocals. That being said, emotional tunes like "Be A Man" and well produced covers inlcuding "Dare You To Move" make the album a solid effort.

Nice song

A little country feel :-)
