|TRACK BY TRACK:|
1. LA LA LAND:
Still haven’t made up my mind what I think of this song, you can look at it as either an annoyingly, catchy contrived bouncy pop rock song or a genuine pop song about the evils of Hollywood and how Lovato will defy these evils.
2. GET BACK:
5. ON THE LINE (featuring Jonas Brothers):
6. DON’T FORGET:
7. GONNA GET CAUGHT:
8. TWO WORLDS COLLIDE:
9. THE MIDDLE:
10. UNTIL YOUR MINE:
11. BELIEVE IN ME:
|12. BEHIND ENEMY LINES:|
A cool, beautiful and breezy soulful tune with some nice percussion involved.
13. LA QUO SOY:
14. BACK AROUND:
If you couldn’t quite make up our mind about La La Land like myself then don’t nessecarily dump this album. Even though I had thought of Lovato as another annoying Disney kid, I have changed my mind immediately. I find Lovato very likeable in fact and she has some powerhouse voice, it really is stunning for her 16 years.
She also proves to be a fairly effective lyricist and has performed live playing the guitar and piano segments on the songs of this album. While this is still undeniably teen pop that’s either purely forgettable or it will stick in your head like bubblegum. Lovato is a bit like Miley Cyrus as they are creating much more fantastic teen pop than what Hilary Duff or Mandy Moore were doing back in the day. I am actually looking forward to Lovato’s next album because if anything she shows a lot of promise and who knows what she will be like by the time Album #2 is released.
