"Whatever happened to good old rock & roll" are the first words Crystal Bowersox sings on her debut, Farmer's Daughter, thereby succinctly summarizing her appeal on American Idol.

Crystal's idol was clearly Janis Joplin -- she auditioned with "Piece of My Heart," she never strayed far from a throaty blues growl -- which in modern terms translates to something halfway between Melissa Etheridge and Sheryl Crow, two artists whose well-manicured roots rock echoes on Farmer's Daughter. Bowersox possesses a charisma that's tangible on record, helping to pull a listener through the songs, almost all penned by Bowersox herself.

    WONDERFUL!

    This is one of those CDs that you play over and over again because you just can't get enough. You can't sit still and you feel compelled to sing along. You catch yourself humming the tunes even when you're not listening to the CD. BUY IT!
