    This album really showcased her great voice. But some of the tracks are bland and boring. "Stronger (What Doesn't Kill You)" and "Mr. Know It All" are the highlights of the album. A solid album of hers, overall, but its not her best.........

    This album starts off great with the first two songs, Mr. Know It All and What Doesn't Kill You, but after that the album becomes very hit or miss. It's not a bad album by any means but Breakaway was a far better album than this. I'd recommend this is you are a Clarkson fan but otherwise just download the first two songs and don't bother with too many of the rest.

    On her fifth album she mercifully avoids the monotonous dance-pop trend in favour of a timeless pop-rock sound that occasionally flirts with the dance floor.

    The album suffers from a heavily produced electro-sheen, and ends up feeling more manufactured than magical.

    So while Stronger has its redeeming moments, they mostly come when Clarkson does what she is renowned for doing and has already done better. It is a little too heavy on the balladry and serious tones, which are the same things that doomed her other two slightly lesser received albums.
