Actress/singer/model Ashley Tisdale, as anyone under 15 knows, is Sharpay from High School Musical, and prior to the release of Headstrong, she'd already scored three singles that charted in Billboard's Top 100 -- which makes her first LP a debut in name only. While a bit edgier musically than Musical's fare, this album offers a PG-rated take on teen pop, loaded with driving beats, hip-hop-inflected vocals, the occasional ballad, and moments that recall songs by Rihanna, Aaliyah, and other mono-monickered R&B vixens. The lyrical subject matter, however, doesn't step over the "kissin' and touchin' " variety -- at least not on this album (Tisdale's producers have tackled this issue in a complicated fashion, as there are reportedly three different versions of the album's first single, "He Said, She Said" -- with differing sets of lyrics -- making the rounds). This album, however, is aimed straight for the parent-approved zone, a lite take on Britney-fied hip-pop that big on sing-along, call-and-response vocals (there are lots of "Hey!"s and "Uh-huh!"s) and lyrics that generally don't stray beyond fun, friends, parties, and boys. It's tailor-made for the High School Musical crowd, and should help Tisdale's star to rise even higher.

Be careful with this one. I purchased the "He Said She Said" single on Itunes and saw Ashley perform it in concert and was extremely disappointment to hear the "revised" lyrics to the song. There is a reason she didn't sing the new lyrics live...they are not appropriate for her audience. If you are thinking Zach and Cody, Ashley Tisdale...think again. The cd is ok for teenagers but I would not recommend it for anyone younger.

Ashley Tisdale is the best singer ever! I think she is so cool. This album is awesome. Make sure you watch Ashley in HSM & TSL! In the words of Sharpay Evens aka Ashley Tisdale Toodles! =)

ashley tisdale's album is pretty good but i have to say that its the lyrics and beats that carry her rather than her own voice. Ashley Tisdale sings much like she talks. I am a big fan of ashley don't get me wrong but i am a realist and can see that her voice is not that great. People seen to automatically compare this with vanessa hudgens but i have to say that ashley's voice is better for pop. Vanessa can sing ballads better than ashley can but ashley can sing jumpier music better than vanessa can. they have two totally different voices. I've even heard a bit of her new album and it is the same thing great beat,ok lyrics but disappointing voice. i love ashley as an actor but don't think she has the chops to be a real artist.

When I saw High School Musical I was blown away! It was amazing but I thought, "whats up with her voice? Its squeeky". But, I have heard many clips of songs and I LOVVVVE them!!! I am so buying this cd and everyone should too. Forget about her voice in HSM if you didnt like it! She just wowed me and she is the best!! ITS A NEED TO BUY!!!!
Guest More than 1 year ago

Some of the songs r good, but they r all 4 teenagers. They have good beats, but on some of them, I just don't know wut she was thinking in attempting 2 sing them...they r just not her style. But, most of the songs were great and I hope she'll release another 1.

Really great CD!!! Love just about every song!!! Ashley Tisdale is very talented!

I think all of you need a reality check. This chick cannot sing or act. She doesn't even look good. She's just another wannabe actress. Look at her live too, she has no sense of pitch. Her lyrics are horrible, just another made-up-in-30-minutes routine. All-in-all, you can think what you want, but please don't go call her singing or acting good. You're only making yourself look bad.

Many would agree that Ashley Tisdale is a very talented actress,but how is her debut album? Well, Ashley may not be the best singer out there by far,but she certainly has enough singing talent to pull off a very respectable album. Although this is not really my type of music, I can appreciate many types of music and several of the songs on the album are very catchy and have really great messages and melodies to them. ex. (we'll be together, suddenly) It has a very unique style and sound from other pop/rock albums which make it all the better. Her voice will ,I believe, certainly develop and improve in the future, but overall not a bad debut album by any means.

This CD is way better than the clips of the song on the web-site. I tatally recomend it. If you like hip-hop, pop, and a little bit of R&B then you will love it. It is a little mature for younger fans. I'ts way differant than the songs she sings a High Scool Musical. But it's fun to daance to!

I really likes Ashley in High School Musical as a singer and dancer, and in the Suite Life as an actor. I especailly liked her voice and vocals. But the songs on this CD are way different than High School Musical. If you like Fergie, get this. If you like Vanessa Hudgens, dont get this

This is a great CD. I love all of the song. Ashley really broke out of her shell. I highly recomend it!

She has the talent to do better but she trying too hard to copy other artist like Britney with album.'She needs to find her own style and stick to it.
Guest More than 1 year ago
I've listened to the whole cd. It's Pretty good. My favorite songs are We'll be together and Be good to me!You'll love this cd if you love to dance to songs, or some slow personal songs. I think you'll like this cd. I recommend you to buy it!!!

Ashley Tisdale is not only a good actor, but see is a great singer. She did so good on HSM, but see did even better on this cd. She is my fav. girl singer. You should buy this cd. If you do, you wont be sorry.
