American Idol punky princess Allison Iraheta will rock you with her debut disc, Just Like You, featuring the infectious single "Friday I'll Be Over U."
All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
The spunky kid sister to Kris Allen and Adam Lambert on season eight of American Idol, Allison Iraheta was the bridge between Allen's sweet, sincere balladeering and Lambert's arch camp. She still had some of Adam's spice but could be packaged like Kris, not unlike her clear forebear Kelly Clarkson, who proved that sass could be bottled and sold.

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
The spunky kid sister to Kris Allen and Adam Lambert on season eight of American Idol, Allison Iraheta was the bridge between Allen's sweet, sincere balladeering and Lambert's arch camp. She still had some of Adam's spice but could be packaged like Kris, not unlike her clear forebear Kelly Clarkson, who proved that sass could be bottled and sold. Just Like You is cut from the same cloth as Clarkson's "Since U Been Gone" mode, all walls of guitars and huge Max Martin-styled hooks, some of which are indeed written by Martin himself, including the album's standout, "Friday I'll Be Over U." When things slow down, Iraheta drifts into P!nk mode, assisted by the singer/songwriter herself on "No One Else" but not on the bluesy ballad "Scars," which is otherwise a dead ringer for P!nk. Allison may strongly resemble her idols here, but chalk that up to youth and it doesn't prevent her from conveying considerable charisma. Unlike many Idol-raised divas, Allison Iraheta has a persona, singing with force and personality, coming alive with the right songs -- those Martin tunes, "Friday I'll Be Over U" and "Just Like You," "Don't Waste the Pretty," and fellow reality show contestant Dilana's "Holiday."

The muscular, instantly recognizable growl that carried her to a fourth-place finish on American Idol's eighth season is all she needs to seamlessly wed a collection of first-rate ditties. Michael Slezak [A-]

    I love Allison...great album!

    From her first "OH YEAH! this is a song collection that has energy, heart and soul. My personal favorite is the "don't waste the pretty", a great message for any woman involved with a bad guy. I look forward to following a long career for this amazing talent!
