We all know the theory about Hollywood: Actors want to be musicians, and musicians want to be actors. Well, the latest crop of teen stars take that rule to heart from the very beginning. Teen dream Lindsay Lohan, who first showcased her singing prowess in her Freaky Friday remake, makes her album debut with the dance pop–based Speak. Lohan infuses her diatribes about the hassles of stardom with guitar-driven rampages and sassy club beats, as on the funky single "Rumors." Naturally, she finds time to weigh in on love and heartbreak - boys, she doesn't care if you love her or hate her in "Nobody 'Til You." But her emotions get the best of her as she "watches the walls around her crumble" in the ballad "Over." Lohan revels in her untamed teen angst and seems to make no apologies for it. But let's hope she doesn't burn out like another young, fair-haired pop-dance diva we know. Musically, Lohan is following in the rock-lite tradition of Hilary and Ashlee, staking her claim to musical fame with several songs - such as "Symptoms of You" and the title track, "Speak" -- that will find their true calling played at high school parties or used as motivation while dressing for said events. And Lohan's voice is distinctive enough that she could well stand the test of time and develop into a 20-something talent to be reckoned with.

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Lindsay Lohan played a rock & roller in the 2003 remake of the classic Disney identity-change flick Freaky Friday, so perhaps it wasn't a huge stretch for her to leap from acting to singing for the teen idol, yet her 2004 debut, Speak, still feels like a byproduct of an overdriven, overamplified celebrity culture. After all, with just two hit films under her belt, Lindsay wasn't exactly a huge star -- particularly one with a proven track record, one who could regularly open movies or had a fan base ready to follow her to pop music. Nevertheless, it was impossible to read gossip columns, entertainment press, and blogs without reading about Ms. Lohan, whether it was details of her feud with Hilary Duff, debates over the authenticity of her breasts, praise for her role in Tina Fey's Mean Girls, reports of her breakup from That 70s Show actor Wilmer Valderrama, and tales of her partying. This relentless flow of stories made Lindsay Lohan a star even to people who never saw her films, the way that the constant coverage of Paris Hilton turned the heiress into a star. And like that creation of celeb culture, Lohan decided it was time to turn her into a multimedia, cross-platform star, instead of simply an actress, and so Speak was recorded quickly and rushed into the stores at the end of the year. It should come as no surprise that the record sounds like a record that was created in the moment and for the moment, to be the soundtrack to Lohan's wild year. So, there are songs that allude to her partying ways -- most explicitly on the lead single, "Rumors," where Lindsay bats her eyes for the camera as she pleads to be left alone -- and the music is a blend of old-fashioned, Britney-styled dance-pop and the anthemic, arena rock sound pioneered by fellow tween stars Hilary Duff and Ashlee Simpson. Lohan stands apart from the pack with her party-ready attitude and her husky voice, which may be mannered but is fuller than Britney's, and it's perfectly suited for the glitzy music on Speak.

Just amazing... 'Speak' is great. Yeah, yeah I know what your thinking just because shes an actress she thinks she can sing now but the truth is Lindsay can sing and her voice is very different. Don't think of this album based on 'Rumors' because its very different from that. I love all the songs and the lyrics are very clever. Heres a run down on the tracks: First - Its a rocky sorta tune, I love the beat on this track. Nobody 'Til You - This was one of faves when I first heard the album and its a good sing along. Symptoms Of You - Its a really nice ballard, another one of my faves and it reminds me of Ashlee's 'Pieces Of Me'. Speak - A poppy song, its quite catchy. Over - I really actually do like this song, love the chorus. Something I Never Had - I can so relate to this song... actually i can relate to alot of the songs on this album. Anything But Me - Cool song, you can sing along to this one qutie well. Disconnected - I love the lyrics on this track, they are very clever, its another one of my faves. To Know Your Name - Its a dance sorta track but with a different kinda beat. Im still deciding but this could be my fave track! It also reminds me of something off Gwen Stefani's album. Very Last Moment In Time - I love this track its a very nice ballard, the start reminds me of a Red Hot Chilli Peppers song. Rumours - Great dance track, very different to the rest of the album.

The album is modest at best..her voice is ok..and the first single..rumors is very misleading..because the album does not reflect the first single..i think many people will be disappointed at this...I would recommend Kelly Clarksons new album..its in stores today..and it is aweasome..far superior this this album..vocally, musically and lyrically...if u want good lasting music..go with kelly clarkson or Gwen stefani...later..

Well rumours a tune but i mean oh my god can this girl actually sing? Singing through your nose doesn't count as singing and mindless rubbish tunes doesn't count as music....i really wanted to like lindsay's album i really did but im sorry putting my ears through torture is just not worth it...better luck next time!!!

the album is decent, but it's no different from every other teen pop. Disappointgly, rumors is the only really quality song. buy the single or download it, but give the CD a listen before purchasing it because it's an adolescent effort.

For Lindsay's first album I have to say it is very good. I really liked the variety of songs from rockers to ballads and in-between. She sounds good singing all types of songs. She seems to have made the transition to singer quite easily. Favorites are First, Speak, and Nobody "Till You.

This is a good pop album BECAUSE the rest is not like "Rumors." The lyrics are brash and the songs are crisp.

I tought this was a great album because most of the songs on the disc was catchy and i loved all of them! they had a different tune from the rest but yet you can tell that she actually sang it unlike other* artists.

I was a fan of Lindsay's acting, but wasn't so sure of her music, especially after I heard "Rumors" which I thought was a bad song, but the album is actually a pretty good one!

When I heard and saw the music video "Rumors" my first reaction was "Oh great another Britney" Basically because I could visualize Britney singing this type of song and dancing in a cage for pitisake. I was turned off by her song until my sister bought her album. She made me listen tirelessly to it since she was playing it every second of her life. It wasn't until I actually started listening to it closely that I caught myself feeling the beat to some of her songs (not rumors might I add). She's good, but not awesome, not really anything you'd have on repeat for hours (unlike my sister)

This album is good, and I like the beats. But, her music video for "Rumours"? Not so great. She's showing off her body, and making out. Not appropriate for kids. But, even though the music video wasn't too great, the song is pretty cool. The other songs in this album are good, too. Just... please don't show that much skin...

Lindsay Lohan has released her first cd entitled "Speak" and some pretty good songs on this disc. My favorite is "Rumors" and if u don't like it, u are corny.
Guest More than 1 year ago
this CD isn't that bad, not at all. if i had to choose between hilary duff and lindsay lohan, i'd choose lindsay lohan any day. the songs are all very catchy and the lyrics are fun to listen to. i especially like the song OVER and SPEAK.
Guest More than 1 year ago
When I first heard 'Rumors'I thought it was garbage (by the way still do) but then I heard 'Over' which is a REALLY GOOD song. but the rest of her album sucks. Its fill with corny wannabe pseudo lyrics about love and life. PLEASE.

I rather enjoy this album. I had heard many horrible reviews for it, and was wary of listenign to it. But once I did I began to enjoy it. Over,First, and Anything but me are actually pretty good tracks. I definately reccommend this CD.

I listen to this cd almost once a week. It helps me think. The lyrics are very good, and her vocal range is great. She really shows her multi-facettedness. Great CD.

I love this cd. I listen to it evereyday. At first I was like "Am I listening to Hilary Duff or Lindsay Lohan?!", but I really love the catchy beats and words. I would recomend it to rock fans.

Before I get to the negatives of this CD, I should tell you that it has great tunes and the songs are wonderful. But, there is a problem or two. Lindsay Lohan used to be as sweet as Hilary Duff, but now she is a total slut! She has slutty photos in the music packet and swore in the CD in one of the songs. I don't recommend this for children under the age of about 11.

When I first heard her sing on "Drama Queen" I knnew she was going to be in the records business. Well I read the reviews on this website, thinking what is the buzz on this CD? Well i listened to the CD and while I don't think Lindsay is the wrost person that graced the world I don't think she is that wonderful of an artist either. Her song Rumors had a cool dance beat but is that her voice? Different from when I had to take one of the kids I baby sit to see "Drama Queen." Her voice is pretty when she isn't trying to sound like something she is not. I do like the variaty of this CD, different topics to discuss but it doesn't go far enough to talk about other things other than different degrees of love. It doesn't dig deep into the hearts of a teenager. It is clicky that is why people like it and there is nothing wrong with clicky music. Lindsay's voice on this album is disgusting at some points. It seems as if she is going to be another Britney Spears and Hillary Duff, the girl who does everything three steps behind Lindsay is the next Christina Augilera and they will have the whole "who is better delima--but with this next generation. So I feel partly bad for Lindsay but not enough to purchase this CD. Listen to it on www.bn.com (by the way it helps to beable to preview music from home) It is another tween (10-12 years of age people who are trying to be trendy and figuring out their idenity) album that will go into the trash as soon as the next big thing comes out.
