Sparks Fly

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Staring down her 17th birthday, Miranda Cosgrove faces the rite of passage that every Disney idol must pass: releasing her debut album. As the star of the super-millennial iCarly, perhaps it shouldn't be a complete surprise that Sparks Fly is bedecked in modern electronic rhythms and icy hooks. Beneath the synths and guitars, Miranda retains a sweet girlish appeal.

    no way

    anyone on disney or nickelodeon automatically turn into singers.. thing is that half of them have no singing ability whatsoever. miranda cosgrove is no exception. she just wants to be the next selena gomez or demi lovato and it just isn't going to happen for her. its all auto-tuned anyway.

    Didn't like it so well.

    I do agree, these actors from nicklodean and disney are getting overrated in becoming singers, they should just stick to one thing, that is why miley cyrus is so stressed out most of the time because she is a singer and actress which makes it hard for her to get good at both things.
    Any ways I didn't really like this album too well, it stinked like poop, she strains her voice too hard like there is poop stuck in her throat.
