LaurenWDec 1, 2009Great debut album from Allison! There are many great songs to enjoy with my favorites being "Don't Waste the Pretty" and "Scars." Great debut album from Allison! There are many great songs to enjoy with my favorites being "Don't Waste the Pretty" and "Scars." Allison's interpretation and emotional connection is evident in each song. This only makes her album all the better.… Expand

MikeMDec 2, 2009I really love this cd, its the first post idol cd I have brought since Fantasia. The only song that kind of sucks is robot love. Don't I really love this cd, its the first post idol cd I have brought since Fantasia. The only song that kind of sucks is robot love. Don't Waste The Pretty, Beat Me Up, Just Like You, Im Still Breathing, Scars, Holiday, and Pieces all have potential to be hit singles. The label clearly chose the wrong song as the first single, not that FIBOU is a bad song, it just doesn't represent the album well and seems like it and robot love were thrown on there to make it more marketable to younger audience. Allison voice is terrific she doesn't need to be doing stuff like that let her do that stuff that shines in. Im very pleased with this and I know this is going way out on the limb here but I would not be suprised to see her become the second idol alum nominated in the best new artist at the grammy's come this time next year.… Expand
Apr 11, 2013amazing debut from Idol alum Allison Iraheta. It has some songs on the weaker side like "Robot Love" and "D Is For Dangerous" but overall itamazing debut from Idol alum Allison Iraheta. It has some songs on the weaker side like "Robot Love" and "D Is For Dangerous" but overall it has a good level of quality, and her vocals are just pop rock at its purest. "Friday Ill Be Over You" Might be my favorite debut single from any former Idol contestant.… Expand
