Kiss & Tell

All Music Guide - Tim Sendra
Selena Gomez's first album under her own name will please the fans she's won as a TV star and vocalist on various Disney-based projects, and it will also make lovers of frothy, fun pop music very happy. Kiss & Tell is a work of near-genius modern pop that shows off Gomez's light but surprisingly soulful vocals in a near-perfect setting. The producers and writing teams involved frame Gomez as a tougher, sassier version of the usual tween pop singer and keep the sappy ballads to a bare minimum. Instead, plenty of songs have her telling off lame boyfriends, tracks joyously detail newfound love affairs, and a good many generally rock out in a manner that might surprise a few...

Selena Gomez's first album under her own name will please the fans she's won as a TV star and vocalist on various Disney-based projects, and it will also make lovers of frothy, fun pop music very happy. Kiss & Tell is a work of near-genius modern pop that shows off Gomez's light but surprisingly soulful vocals in a near-perfect setting. The producers and writing teams involved frame Gomez as a tougher, sassier version of the usual tween pop singer and keep the sappy ballads to a bare minimum. Instead, plenty of songs have her telling off lame boyfriends, tracks joyously detail newfound love affairs, and a good many generally rock out in a manner that might surprise a few people. Indeed, the variety of styles and sounds on the record is pretty impressive. Snappy bursts of punky pop bump up against Latin-influenced dance jams, bubblegummy midtempo ballads sit easily next to spunky new wave rockers, techno-ish dancefloor stompers lead into hopeful love songs, and Gomez is at home singing all of them. She sounds like she could leave the whole pop star world behind and join an emo-pop band on songs like "Crush" and "I Won't Apologize." Or she could completely embrace the pop star world and top the charts with sweetly sincere and ultra-hooky songs like "I Promise" and frothy trifles like "As a Blonde." Or she could be the lead singer of the Disney pop-era version of the Go-Go's. Thanks to the fact that one of the songwriting teams on the record has former Go-Go Gina Schock as a member and thanks to bouncy, peppy songs like "Kiss & Tell," that's not really too much of a stretch. Probably the best idea for the future is for Gomez to keep making records as diverse and well constructed as Kiss & Tell, keeping the same producers and songwriters on board and maintaining the same smart and sassy attitude she displays throughout. That should keep the tweens and teens happy while impressing and thrilling fans of perfectly constructed capital "P" pop, too.

    Okay

    This cd is awsome. It has some minnor things that need adjusting. The sound quality is okay it does need some work on it. If you are a Selena Gomez fan you shhould get it if you love here(as an artis). If you are timid about it then look the music up on youtube.com or something. One of my favorites on the cd is Naturaly. It has soul into it is an awsome song that eveyone should play at a party.

    Surprisingly Great!

    I barely heard the song Naturally on the radio and loved the way it sounded and its great dance beat. I honestly was surprised to hear it was Selena shes a great actress I didn't know she was also an unbelievable singer. I asked for the CD right away and when i got it realized all the other songs where just as touching and great as Naturally. I love her voice. I hope she continues to make great music. She does great dance music.

    A Very Talented Artist! :)

    I have this CD and I really enjoyed it. I love all of Selena's music and I think that she has a really talented voice and a great sense of music! The only downside to this CD is that most of the songs all sound the same... to me anyways. There is very little variety for someone who might have expected this. I hope this review was helpful! :) :) :)

    Way Good

    I actually based my purchase on the reviews and they did not let me down. Who knew that Selema Gomez would actually be a great singer. I loved the cd. She has an amazing voice that is obviously very versatile. I hope that if she does more music she does more dancy songs. Anyway for anyone who is still debating getting this cd, don't. Its GREAT!!!!
