Overview

Considering that Demi Lovato's debut album, Don't Forget, appeared in the fall of 2008, just as Miley Cyrus was inching away from Hannah Montana and into more adult territory, it's hard not to think that Demi isn't being groomed as a replacement for Miley, but a better musical comparison for this Radio Disney queen is the Jonas Brothers. Lovato appeared in the Disney TV movie Rock Camp with the Brothers and toured with them prior to the release of Don't Forget, but the more crucial connection between the two camps is revealed in the album's credits: six of the 11 songs here were co-written by the Jonas Brothers. Given this, it shouldn't come as a great surprise that Demi's music sounds a lot like the Brothers: it's bright, sugary, snappy power pop, fueled by big, fuzzy guitars and big, muscular hooks. Unlike the Brothers' 2008 album, A Little Bit Longer, there is no attempt to sell Demi Lovato to an audience broader than tweens, so this is pure, unapologetic bubblegum, a fizzy rush of singalong hooks occasionally punctuated by a bit of sighing puppy love, which surfaces most strongly on "On the Line," an actual duet with the Jonas Brothers. This is fine fodder for a middle school slow dance, but what's really memorable about Don't Forget is its parade of urgent, insistent guitar pop -- the kind of pop that feels disposable but winds up sticking around longer than its more considered cousins. This kind of trashy fun was missing on A Little Bit Longer, so it's nice to find that it surfaces proudly on Don't Forget. It's pure pop for tween people. [A Deluxe Edition was released in 2009 with a bonus DVD of music videos, live performances, and behind the scenes footage.]

Demi Lovato can seriously belt it out. She's young, but has one of those powerful voices that only get better with age. I'm years older and still, when I hear her, I get caught up in the energy and end up rocking out, too. I think I'll go do that now. Really, as far as debut albums go, this was phenomenal. Undeniable talent.

I think that she did really well for her first CD. Many of the songs are actally pretty decent. She does well when she sings kind of slow too. Like On th Line (with the Jonas Brothers) is definitley and amazing song. In general, at least it isn't all pop/digital sounding, unlike many other disney stars. Congrats to Demi.

Honestly, this album was like a relief to me. My younger nieces and nephews are always listening to that disney stuff and when my niece got this cd and we listened to it, it was like a breath of fresh air. It's definitely exceeds  the current stars Disney has. Her talent is undeniable, and I actually enjoy listening along with my niece. The songs aren't all bubble gum pop. They're very pop rock, while some are more pop than others, but still have an edge. Out of all Disney music, I would say this is the closest to actual music that they have.

Every song is breathtakingly beautiful as is all of Demi's songs. RIDICULOUSLY INCREDIBLE VOICE.
