Product Description

Jesse McCartney is everywhere these days - Top 10 radio, concert stages, television & movies - & his mesmerizing voice couldn't be more welcome. Yes, SUMMERLAND TV-star Jesse McCartney is a young man of many talents, but it's his drop-dead beautiful single "Beautiful Soul" that has catapulted the charismatic 17-year-old to the top of the 2004 charts. A radio favorite since its release in "Beautiful Soul" has hit Radio Disney's Top 3 more than 100 times & is now racing up the Pop Charts.

Amazon.com

Jesse McCartney is so pinup-ready, so boy-bandishly appealing in that shaggy-sweet kind of way, that anyone older than 17 will likely be rolling their eyes at him. You know what comes next: they shouldn't. In a classic case of can-that-many-teenage-girls-be-wrong?, McCartney's solo debut sparkles—the danceable tracks call to mind Michael Jackson in his early '80s heydey, the ballads reek of Babyface, and the rest rolls up Hall & Oates, Craig David, and flecks of Usher into a rib-sticking concoction anybody with an ear for pop will want to swallow whole. It's not exactly brain food—the tracks he co-wrote, including standout and opener "She's No You," "What's Your Name," and "That Was Then," are little more than smooth, shiny come-ons telling high school girls what they want to hear. And there's no denying the disc is front-loaded, with the relationshippy stuff starting to wear as track 12 approaches. But despite those things—and despite the name he's made for himself on TV (first on All My Children and more recently on WB's Summerland), which will only add to his early panning among "serious" listeners—Beautiful Soul sets out plenty of reasons to believe that this heartthrob, no matter how long his tousle-haired beauty holds up, has got soul to burn. --Tammy La Gorce

Beautiful Soul is one heck of a wonderful album by Jesse McCartney. This kid's got more talent in his pinky finger than more artists have in their entire blood stream! The songs are really very good and this makes a fine introduction to the artistry of Jesse McCartney. The quality of the sound is awesome and the artwork is very well done, too.

"She's No You" is a great song with an edgy type of pop that I really like. Jesse sings this with a lot of feeling and that's wonderful! The melody is very well arrangement considering how complex it is; and "She's No You" makes a great starter song for this album. This is anything but elevator music! "Beautiful Soul" has to be one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard from today's young artists--ever. Jesse McCartney sings this with all his heart and soul and just one listen proves it. Indeed, Jesse delves deep into this song to make it really shine and he accomplishes this very nicely. Good work! The electric guitar work also fits in perfectly with the arrangement.

"Get Your Shine On" truly sounds as if it WAS influenced by Michael Jackson's writing a few lines; but make no mistake about it--this is Jesse's song and he performs it flawlessly. "Get Your Shine On" really is pleasing to the ear and it makes for a huge highlight on this album. Jesse's voice is clear and his uncanny sense of timing make songs like "Get Your Shine On" all the better. "Take Your Sweet Time" is a sensitive ballad that proves just how well Jesse can deliver a love song with panache; Jesse sings of how he loves his woman so much that he wait for her to come around and finally see that loving him is the right thing to do.

"Why Don't You Kiss Her?

Jesse McCartney's solo debut album is absolutely amazing! I'll admit, I was skeptical when I heard about him at first, I figured he would be just another over produced, untalented boy band type of artist. But when I heard "Beautiful Soul", the title track to this album, I was completely blown away. I had to have the album, simply for that song. So I bought it, and let me tell you, I have no regrets. This CD is definitely one of the best CDs of the year. With the smooth pop rock music and Jesse's equally smooth, amazing vocals, the sound is beautiful and unique. And the lyrics are equally wonderful, they deal with issues all teens go through, but all the songs are written in a different way than all the other ones out there, and they give a fresh perspective.

Here's a rundown of the album:

1. She's No You- 9/10- This song is really cool, fast guitar music and absolutely filled with lyrics. Really rocks!

2. Beautiful Soul-10/10- Title track to the album. This is my new favorite song, the lyrics and music are totally awesome. I especially love the part in the middle where the guitar comes in, 2 thumbs up, Jesse!

3. Get Your Shine On-7/10- Cool song to dance to, not much more to say about that one. One of my least favorites on album. (Still cool though)

4. Take Your Sweet Time-8/10 I love this song, it's so sweet, and it really shows off Jesse's range, going from low to high.

5. Without U- 10/10- One of my favorites, the lyrics are awesome and the musical arrangement is really unique. Again, shows off Jesse's amazing voice to an advantage.

6. Why Don't You Kiss Her?- 8/10- Really sweet song about a guy wondering whether he should tell his best friend that he loves her or not. Sweet and simple.

Jesse is an artist with way more talent than he's given credit for. The most common comparison is to Aaron Carter. But This album more than proves that he is just about the farthest thing from the Aaron Carter-type popstars he's compared to. Jesse has a great voice that shines through on every track- especially ballads like Take Your Sweet Time and Because You Live. He can shine just as well on fast tracks, and that proves just how much this kid has got. So I urge you to give him a chance and buy this cd. It's full of "soul-infused pop", as it has been called, and now people are starting to compare him to artists like Craig David. So buy 'Beautiful Soul.' I promise you, you will not regret it.

First off, I just wanted to say that Jesse McCartney is NOTHING like Aaron Carter. Nada. Just because they both have shaggy blonde hair, are around the same age, and sing doesn't mean they're the same. And just because you heard of Aaron before you heard of Jesse, DOESN'T mean that Jesse's an Aaron poser.

Yes, Jesse writes songs. He co-wrote 4 or 5 tracks on the album, (even though he didn't write Beautiful Soul) one of which is She's No You and personally, I think it's a great song.

This is the ONLY album I own that I can play all the way through, which is saying something. Especially since I'm really picky with music :) Jesse's got a great voice and he's learning how to use it to his advantage. I listen to it at least partially every day. It's addictive! Hehe.

----------

She's No You - Upbeat and fun, has a lot of meaning to it. Great song.

Beautiful Soul - I love the tune of this song. The opening guitar riffs are simple but effective. The lyrics are cute (but I didn't like the video too much!) I love the guitar.

Get Your Shine One - I didn't like this one too much. The tune is good for dancing, though.

Take Your Sweet Time - My favourite ballad. It's slow and it's a nice slow-dance track. It's really meaningful and deep.

Without U - Hmm, this track is ok, I personally don't think the tune really flows together much and the chorus is a bit weird.

Why Don't You Kiss Her - Another slow ballad. The lyrics are really sweet.

That Was Then - I liked all of this song. It's funky and upbeat, but I don't think the tune really goes with the lyrics.

Come To Me - A good remake of "Let Me Be The One" (Can't remember who sang it) I love the chorus.
