Jesse McCartney used to be a part of turn-of-the-century teen pop also-rans Dream Street, a group who made a few waves in 2001, just as the renaissance of 1999/2000 was starting to draw to a close. Like other teenage showbiz kids, McCartney covered his bases after the group's demise, signing with Hollywood Records just before he landed a role on the 2004 WB show Summerland, which just happened to be scheduled to hit the airwaves not long after his debut solo album, Beautiful Soul, hit the stores in September 2004.

Jesse McCartney used to be a part of turn-of-the-century teen pop also-rans Dream Street, a group who made a few waves in 2001, just as the renaissance of 1999/2000 was starting to draw to a close. Like other teenage showbiz kids, McCartney covered his bases after the group's demise, signing with Hollywood Records just before he landed a role on the 2004 WB show Summerland, which just happened to be scheduled to hit the airwaves not long after his debut solo album, Beautiful Soul, hit the stores in September 2004. This kind of cross-platform positioning was commonplace midway through the 2000s -- Britney Spears may have started it, but Hilary Duff perfected it, rising up through Disney TV as the lead of the delightful sitcom Lizzie McGuire before having a number one album in 2003 with her first grand-scale pop album, Metamorphosis. That's the path that McCartney and his producers have chosen, and Beautiful Soul is a cross between Metamorphosis and Justin Timberlake's solo debut, Justified. It's targeted at the preteens who made Hilary a star, so it's light and cheerful, but it has the sleek, sultry grooves that made Justified a blockbuster, which means that McCartney has a chance not only to flaunt a little maturity, he's given a direction where he can grow. While some of the material here is a bit generic the ballads are a particular weakness, the songs that work are shockingly good. The by-the-books teen pop songs, like the lead single, "She's No You," are engaging, but it's the tracks that draw deeply from Timberlake that really get the album moving -- the Robbie Nevil-written "Get Your Shine On" nearly trumps "Rock Your Body" as a successful update of Michael Jackson's Off the Wall. McCartney is still a teenager, still figuring out how to control his voice and use its sweet thinness as an advantage -- for anybody who watched Bravo's brilliant series Showbiz Moms & Dads, he can't help but recall a Shane Klingensmith with talent -- but these songs suggest that he will be able to figure that out, and it's the songs that make this album a welcome surprise.

    I got this CD for my birthday, and I am so glad that I did, otherwise I would have wasted twenty dollars on it myself. This is one of the worst CD's I have ever heard. He sounds just like Justin Timberlake. Enough said. Don't even waste your time considering this CD.

    Don't question me; I'm strapped to a chair

    I have given poor Jesse whazislastname one star on these grounds: I am not a preppy and or sappy fangirl that fawns over guys like him, I do not like his voice nor his music, I don't know if I'm allowed to put "rate this title" as none, I am tied to a chair by my best friend's homicidal and suicidal eight year old sister (I have taught her well...except for the suicidal part...blame that on Jess) who has this amazing rant going on "oh, Jesse's soooo hot" "oh, Jesse's sooo cool" "oh, I want him to marry me someday" (funny how her mind works)... also, I believe the only thing going for him right now is that his face is so-so. Someone I know went to see him in concert and confirms that his voice is nuh-uh not happening...so I think I'll stick with my alternative and rock bands, thank you. If you're a pop-prep freak, go ahead; this is for you.

    Wonderful--A Masterpiece In Its Own Way

    This is truly a magnificent CD. I love how Jesse's voice has so many ranges and he can sing anything from ballads (Take Your Sweet Time) to techno-ish tunes (That Was Then) and of course, pop songs like Beautiful Soul. He never sings about anything negative (with the exception of Why Is Love So Hard to Find?) and I love that about this. If you're in the mood for great, happy, clean music, then most definitly buy this CD.

    THIS ALBUM BLOWS

    It's a Sat. night and I figured I'll amuse myself by listeing to what Jesse has to do to the world and why everybody "oh loves him soo much" well...WHY DO PEOPLE TORTURE THEMSELVES! I don't want another pretty face/I don't want anyone to hold...I hear this dumb song on the radio all of the time. and this cd seems to just follow in the footsteps of a justin timberlake wannabe...DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY

    AWESOME CD!

    This CD is a completely amazing CD that even though I just bought it, I have totally fell in love with it! I love all of the songs and the lyrics are really touching and heartfelt. My favorite songs are "What's Your Name", "Because You Live", "She's No You", and "That Was Then". Plus, Jesse is so adorable! He's just about the hottest, most talented singer I am aware of! I would recommend Jesse McCartney's CD to anyone who enjoys a good pop CD.

    WOW!

    Jesse McCartney is sooo amazing! He is incredibly cute! My fave song would have to be Beutiful Soul! I first saw him on Upick live, and I Loved him! I think he is very talented. He will definitly grow in popularity I think more quickly than any other star! I got a $30 Gift card for this site, and I bought this album and adored it INSTANTLY! Rock on Jesse!

    he's o-k.

    personally, i didn't really like Jesse's CD. it's his style of singing. it's just not for me. but, if you really like pop, i would recommend this CD for you. however, i like Jesse on the tv show Summerland. so, i'm still a fan of his. just.... not musically.
