In 2007, Kelly Clarkson rebelled against her label and her mentor, Clive Davis, by co-writing most of the somber My December. Although the record went platinum, it paled in comparison to her multiplatinum breakthrough, 2004’s Breakaway. So what’s a bar-setting American Idol champ to do? One listen to “My Life Would Suck without You,” the catchy “Since You Been Gone”-reminiscent single from her third disc, All I Ever Wanted, and it’s clear that the answer is to return to the girl-power pop anthems that made Clarkson a star in the first place. Standouts include the heart-tugger “Cry” and the angry kiss-off “Don’t Let Me Stop You” -- either of which could easily be adopted as the theme song for ABC’s The Bachelor series. Clarkson, like her feisty pop peer Pink, knows how to touch the angst-ridden and lovelorn teenage girl in all women, and even macho men were powerless against the infectious “Since You’ve Been Gone.” That’s the audience for the Katy Perry-penned “I Do Not Hook Up,” and the Joan Jett-lite “Whyyawannabringmedown.” On the second half of All I Ever Wanted, however, Clarkson experiments with mixed results on several tracks, including the winning, contemporary R&B-tinged “Impossible” and “I Want You,” an uninspired nod to the retro sound popularized by Duffy and Amy Winehouse. That minor misstep aside, the pop princess still delivers what her fans want and then some.

I bought this because of the 3 songs I was hearing on the radio, but there are many other songs that grow on you every time you listen to the CD. I often think how much good music is missed by people who only download hits from itunes. I may be showing my age, but, there is something special about listening to an entire album over & over again, which makes you appreciate the artist even more.
this album rocks enough said!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
this is kelly clarksons best studio album everybody should buy this album because its kelly clarkson at her best
Because its the best album ever! Kelly Clarkson was the first American Idol and she has created unstoppable hits that make you cheer, dance, and cry. Her voice is charming without being overwhelming. She is a star to be heard and loved. She has kept up her career even after she left the show and that shows she is a real artist that can stand on her own. The music is great. Each track is something for every emotion. You feel like reminising in memories then listen to CRY. All her songs are different and will stay in your memories for good! I should know I cant stop thinking about this album. Truly a great must have!
Kelly Clarkson. Talented. Soulful. And even her sound carries the emotions some might feel in there personal life. My life would suck with out you- a great hit and a personal song. If you or any one you know has a bo or a husband that they feel is always, well taking over. Mabey thats not the right word but anyway, the songs on this track is definatly a good pop CD.
I have been a fan of Kelly's from the beginning. She has taken her music to just about every spectrum possible. But, I think she finally achieved the perfect match of all her music choice aspects. Kelly keeps her amazing song writing at all-time high with this album, and there is not a song on this album that I don't enjoy listening to.
I love this album, it got a bad wrap by the media and radio since she was fighting with Clive Davis. But for people who love classic rock and old school 90s rock pop will love it and Kelly Clarkson is so worth it.
kelly clark has a great vocal range this album blew me away my favorite song on this album is my life will suck without you this album is off the wall awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

this album is just awesome me and the rest of the reviewers on this page already pre ordered our copys of all i ever wanted by kelly clarkson this is kelly clarksons best album yet
She has shown promise in the past but she has come a long way in this record. With life comes experience and experience brings great situations to write and sing about. This record shows emotion and a reality of great singing and strong voice. One should stop and take a momment to listen to this record and enjoy.
This CD has some great hits! It also has some songs that are good, but not Kelly's Style. Overall a good CD to rock to in the car.
Kelly did a great job on this cd; love it.
Great cd! Lots of great, catchy songs!!

I believe the cd all i ever wnated is her best album so far filled with deep and true emotions and thats what i love about it. She is an amazing artist.
