    [An] often impressive fourth album.

    The singer has a strong grip on her skills as a performer, but is still chiseling away at the formula that works best for her as an artist, and is unwittingly putting that self-discovery on display here.

    Ultimately, this isn't an album of purpose, it's a collection of moments, and it has just enough good ones to solidify Demi Lovato's comeback.

    It's predictable stuff--sassy songs, lovelorn songs, a couple of pop-psych pep talks--but Lovato is good company, and her voice has gustiness and character.

    It’s too bad that her new album, Demi, sounds like such a decisive return to teen pop.

    Demi sounds like Lovato’s grasping for hits, when she used to sound like she was making music and having fun.

    Well, comparing this to unbroken, this album is amazing. She wrote (almost) all the songs of "DEMI".

I'm so proud. her voice sounds awesome. i love the guitar and the sound of real instruments. This album deserves to be a success, and have a great tour to promote it. My favorites so far is "Shouldn't Come Back", "Something That We're Not", "Heart Attack" and "Never Been Hurt". Expand

    Demi, Lovato's fourth studio album feels like a combination of Lovato's two earlier albums and her previous one, Unbroken. With a pop rockDemi, Lovato's fourth studio album feels like a combination of Lovato's two earlier albums and her previous one, Unbroken. With a pop rock feel on some tracks mixed with R&B dance-pop production and a number of big, slick ballads, Demi feels carefully calculated. This album is not a personal one, it's just a collection of songs to prove Lovato a successful, hit-making pop diva. In that matter, it succeeds. Too bad Demi shows very little musical growth for Lovato, besides vocally. Demi is pretty much a step backward into the familiar teen pop territory. Vocally, however, Demi is on point. She sings songs like she means them (not that she really does.) She wails, belts, screams, yells and it all sounds beautiful. Her voice may be the only thing that makes the material on Demi listenable. Lyrically, it's quite challenging. Lyrics are reminiscent of Carly Rae Jepsen's Kiss album in that they're both fluffy, but nonetheless interesting. Production-wise, it's pretty good. It's feel-good pop rock with dance and R&B influences and slick, radio-ready power ballad production. However, production on Demi is too teen pop. Too much like Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez & the Scene. Demi is not a bad album for Lovato; it's quite entertaining. It's just disappointing that a pop singer with such attitude and a sense of fun, is now just fishing for hits instead of making music that feels inspiring in some way. Lovato needs a maturity check.
    HIGHLIGHTS: Heart Attack, Made In The USA, Something That We're Not, Fire Starter

    Not her best album. Lyrically weak, musically generic. "Never Been Hurt" is another "Unbroken". "Warrior" is the new "Skyscraper" andNot her best album. Lyrically weak, musically generic. "Never Been Hurt" is another "Unbroken". "Warrior" is the new "Skyscraper" and "Shouldn't Come Back" is like "For the Love of a Daughter" Part II.

    Lovato could have tried to put the album together. Even though it's quite versatile, it seems to be all over the place and have no cohesion at all.

    Demi Lovato the next Christina Aguilera. She has an amazing voice, but is this an amazing album no.

    This may sound weird but every song
    Demi Lovato the next Christina Aguilera. She has an amazing voice, but is this an amazing album no.

    This may sound weird but every song (besides Really Don't Care and Something That Were Not) are perfect. But as a collective just make the album TOO emotional. Yeah that sounds weird. She definitely has grown through. I must say and this is also weird this is her worst album with great songs on it. The songs are good but only like 3-5 are fun. Heart Attack, USA, Fire Starter, Neon Lights, and thats it. Nightingale, Warrior, Two Pieces, etc are great. Now I am far from a hater she is one of my all time top 10 singers but this album is too emotional. Should you buy it. Yes just look at this album as the emotional side of Unbroken. Unbroken is the fun one DEMI is the emotional one.

    Here We Go Again, then Unbroken, then Don't Forget, then DEMI. This is how you listen to her.

    Demi tries to create upbeat, synthesized pop anthems that are both catchy and uninspired, that you'd hear a thousand times on 96.5 FM.
