iTunes Review

Ashlee Simpson’s 2004 debut album, Autobiography, arrived in the wake of big sister Jessica’s massive cross-media fame. Several of the album's tracks—especially “Shadow”—touch on the siblings’ conflicted relationship in explicit terms. More importantly, Ashlee emerged as an artist in her own right with these tracks, cowriting all of the material and staking out a feisty rock sound distinct from Jessica’s dance/pop approach. In the manner of music by Alanis Morissette, P!nk, and Avril Lavigne, Autobiography is infused with plenty of defiant yet vulnerable attitude. Simpson lays down the law to a confused boyfriend in “Love Me for Me,” indulges in kinky scenarios in “La La,” and comes clean about her freewheeling habits in the title tune. Whether she’s putting the moves on a crush (“Surrender”), getting steamy with a main squeeze (“Unreachable”), or trying to hang on to a love gone wrong (“Undiscovered”), Ashlee’s rough-edged coo sounds confident amid the spiky guitars and buoyant melodies that dominate here. A surprisingly personal work, Autobiography lets Ashlee grab the mic and tell her side of the Simpson saga.

She's a rocker ...

Boy, tough crowd here. I think y'all need to lay off the caffeine. I bought this album for my daughter (going through her Brittany phase) on the recommendation of a friend. At first listen I wasn't terribly impressed, but as time went on I found myself listening to these tracks when my daughter played them (as opposed to closing and barricading the door with most of her other music). I started playing it in the car, and not only find the whole disc listenable (a very rare occurance), but started catching the more subtle nuances of this stroll through rock 'n' roll history. It became my default disc - what'd get levered into the slot when I was sick of everything else. I really like this disc - much more than her second album (unfortunately).

Bubble gum pop with an edge!

I am not ashamed to say it... I love Ashlee Simpson. Well, I love her music anyways. I was less than impressed with the artist's show on MTV, but I found myself singing the music so I had to buy the album. I love it! She sounds nothing like her older sister, Jessica and has definitely set herself apart from many others in the teeny bopper pop genre. She has an edge that is refreshing and her voice captured my attention throughout the album. My favorites on the CD are the first single, Pieces of Me and La La. For more of my reviews check out

She might be the younger sister of superstar Jessica Simpson, but don't confuse their tastes or style when it comes to music. Waco, Texas-born Ashlee Simpson always loved music. At age 11 she was the youngest person ever admitted into the School of American Ballet. At 14 she moved with her parents and older sister to Los Angeles and spent time dancing in Jessica's stage show. Appearances on Malcolm in the Middle and The View led to a regular role on the television show Seventh Heaven but Ashlee's...
