Last week, Demi Lovato’s highly anticipated third studio album “Unbroken” was released, and let me tell you, it should be caged up again.  I’ll be honest, I was excited for the album.  Despite Demi Lovato’s tween audience, I think she is a very talented singer.  She has–or I should say had–a very strong and confident sense to her voice that made it something worth listening too.  The album’s first single “Skyscraper,” which is incredibly inspirational, even suckered me in. But fuck was I wrong.

This album is all over the place.  It starts off with a track featuring Missy Elliott and Timbaland, then somehow makes it down to the emotional “Skyscraper” and ends with a Wizz Dumb (Who? Yeah, I don’t know either) remix of the single.

Entertainment Weekly puts my thoughts perfectly in a review they wrote on the album.  The article quotes “There are two ways for pop stars to make a Survivor Album: either power-sing through your problems like Christina Aguilera, or make like Rihanna and dance ’till you forget what you’re supposed to be getting over. On her first release since checking out of rehab, Demi Lovato wants to have it both ways.”  In my opinion, you can’t have it both ways.  Sorry, Demi.

But don’t take my word for it.  Here is the Spotify link to “Unbroken,” and below is her single “Skyscraper”:
