  • Summary: The debut album for the Georgia-based singer features songs written by American Idol judge, Kara DioGuardi.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 3 out of 4
  2. Negative: 0 out of 4
  1. Jessie James falters on a handful of snoozy power ballads but plays one heck of a small-town sex kitten on up-tempo numbers like 'Blue Jeans.'
  2. With a voice that seems to work with many genres, James' set is reminiscent of hits from late-'90s pop acts, but with a more mature, sexually charged attitude and influence from country and hip-hop.
  3. That eagerness to sell out can be grating, especially when her 2009 debut slides into glassy ballads, but fortunately she's also picked up (perhaps unwittingly) on the underlying oddness of Aguilera and Perry, turning out purportedly mainstream pop that puts together familiar ingredients in weird ways.
  4. While she's able to pull off that bad-girl vamp far more convincingly than Underwood, that isn't saying much, and James certainly doesn't hold a candle to Aguilera at her skankiest.
