A Little More Personal (RAW)
On the follow-up to last year’s platinum debut, Speak, Lindsay Lohan attempts to give a little more insight into the young woman behind the movie star, pop diva and tabloid queen. First single “Confessions of a Broken Heart (Daughter to Father)” is an introspective power ballad that addresses the much-publicized drama surrounding her relationship with her dad: “I carry the weight of the world on my shoulders/ A family in crisis that only grows older.” She also seems to be reaching out to her estranged father on “My Innocence,” another of four songs that Lohan cowrote: “It could be your blood/ Running through all my veins/ That ties me to your fate.” Unfortunately, Lohan doesn’t bring much real blood to her performances on this prosaic pop-rock disc. A singer like Kelly Clarkson surely would have given more oomph to some of these tunes. And on cuts like her remake of Cheap Trick’s “I Want You to Want Me,” Lohan will hardly leave you hankering for more.
