3.0 out of 5 stars CD Falls Short In Delivering The Shining Moments May 12, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Even though this season of American Idol has been somewhat of a disappointment for me, this record does hint at possibilities for better things to come for several of these young singers, with "singers" being the key word here.

I think I've gotten a little spoiled in recent years with so many near-professionals gracing the Idol stage. Many past contestants already had developed a definite musical identity and possessed a natural ability to take any song and make it sound current and exciting. In general, this year's group may need a bit more guidance and direction to be all they can be. But there are voices here with desirable tonal characteristics, and with the right producers, a lot of hard work and a little bit of time, some are sure to develop into artists rather than just singers.

The tracks on this CD supposedly re-create each contestant's shining moment. While I won't attempt to judge whether or not these songs were the best picks, I do believe that several of these arrangements and/or performances aren't quite as good as the live performances were.

For example, this electronic dance-pop version of Andrew Garcia's "Forever" isn't nearly as effective as his acoustic rendition on the show. Lee DeWyze's "Treat Her Like A Lady" doesn't come close to duplicating the energy and passion delivered live. The simple acoustic guitar/cello arrangement for Casey James' "Jealous Guy" was all that was needed to back up his powerful Idol performance. This recording beefs things up with piano and more strings, which isn't necessarily all bad, but Casey's vocal here doesn't project as dynamically as it did then.

There are several tracks that I would put into the No Better, No Worse category.

5.0 out of 5 stars The AI Ladies Shine On This CD June 2, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Siobhan Magnus shows off her amazing vocal range and ability on Paint it Black. I wish they had more tracks of her recordings on this cd. Didi Benami's take on Play with Fire is just as thrilling as the live version. This style realling suits Didi. Katie Stevens' vocals were strong and inspiring on Let it Be.

I am glad that they included Casey James singing Jealous Guy. One of my favorite songs from this season. Also, Aaron Kelly did well on I don't want to miss a thing, but I wish they had included his version of Angie, instead.

Lee, Mike, Tim, and Crystal's songs were okay, too. They sounded much better in the recording studio than live (which is typical of recording artists).

4.0 out of 5 stars American Idol Impressive September 22, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
So, I actually went with my Little Sister from Big Brothers Big Sisters to the American Idol concert via some tickets that came from a generous donor. I was really impressed and I'm twice the age of my LIttle Sister. I enjoyed the concert so much that I wanted to get the CD. I was a little disappointed that there were a few songs not on the CD but I love what's on it!

4.0 out of 5 stars very good but they could have included more music September 30, 2012
Format:Audio CD
This CD of songs by the top 10 finalists of American Idol's Season 9 offers nothing but wonderful music; my only disappointment is that with a run time of just over 36 minutes they could have included a couple more songs at least. True, people may say that some of these studio recordings lack the power and the punch of the live performances on the show; but at least for me, a casual fan of the show, this impressed me as a solid album. The quality of the sound is excellent and the artwork includes a small poster of the artists here as well as song credits and a brief statement of thanks by each artist.

Lee DeWyze's cover of "Treat Her Like a Lady" starts off with some mighty fine vocalizing; this guy is going places although of course the others have a bright future, too. "Treat Her Like a Lady" rocks and the arrangement works well with Lee's singing. Awesome! Andrew Garcia's "Forever" is very well done; the beat is great and it all holds its own very well. Siobhan Magnus's "Paint It Black" would make The Stones proud; the song starts off relatively soft with a pretty musical arrangement until it goes into full gear with Siobhan singing her heart out! "Paint It Black" is yet another excellent, rocking song that showcases Siobhan's talent very nicely. Crystal Bowersox show off her vocal prowess on "Me and Bobby McGee;" Crystal sings this without ever letting go of a single superfluous note!

Casey James performs John Lennon's "Jealous Guy" with panache; he sings with genuine heart and soul and I really like his rendition of "Jealous Guy." "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing" is a song I first heard performed by Aerosmith; Aaron Kelly does great justice to this ballad.

1.0 out of 5 stars Huge Letdown March 28, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I had to buy this c.d. While watching season 9 of Idol on T.V. I was completely blown away by 3 performances that are on this disc. These young performers were let down big time by those involved in creating this c.d. The very life was sucked out of each and every performance. This disc never should have gone to the studio. It should have consisted of the very same LIVE performances that we viewed on T.V. This disc is dull, lifeless and simply has no energy whatsoever. It's not the singers either because I saw what they can do. I'll never play this c.d. again and it was a 100% waste of money. I had high hopes for Adam Lambert but was let down big time. His strength was hard rock/heavy metal. His vocals are custom made for the genres. His self penned metal song is fantastic but remains unreleased to my knowledge. His strength was that he could really wail like Robert Plant of Led Zeppelin but his c.d. has no hard rock or heavy metal songs. Again & again I see the strengths being taken away from these young singers. Looks like Crystal Bowersox is now a country singer ? Come on...I'm done buying American Idol performer C.D.'s unless they are live and in the genre of the perfomers' strengths.

I bought this CD for Siobhan Magnus' performance of "Paint it Black," but it was so watered down, it was depressing. Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars A few good songs
Purchased this CD only for the Crystal Bowersox song since it's the best one on the CD. For the price, it was an okay purchase. The CD itself didn't impress me much though.
