Product Description

Amazon.com

If your impressions of Ashley Tisdale are fuzzy around the edges but include visions of singing schoolgirls, blond supercuteness, and shrieking, hysterical 10-year-olds, you'll want to check them at the door before checking out Headstrong. It's not that fourth graders won't like the long-limbed High School Musical star's hooky, happy, and at times hyper solo debut. It's just that you might, too. Tisdale, a little like Lindsey Lohan and not at all like Hilary Duff, doesn't waste time ditching her groovy-juvie reputation to reimagine herself as a red-hot starlet here. "He Said She Said" is a steamy dancefloor seduction that ought to come with a PG-15 rating ("Baby I can see us moving like that/Baby I can see us touchin' like that," it goes), and "Not Like That" mines familiar misunderstood-celebrity territory in a way that's less whiny than worked-up. The thing is, it all sounds pretty good--from the head-bobbing urban beat in "Be Good to Me" to the fuzz and boingy effects on "Over It," Tisdale proves her appeal is not limited to junior proms. Which is not to say she doesn't leave a little something for fans who still dot their I's with circles: One of Headstrong's strongest numbers, "Unlove You," is tailor-made for belt-outs in pastel-pink bedrooms. --Tammy La Gorce

That's exactly what the pop debut of Ashley Tisdale is. If you enjoy bubblegum pop circa Britney Spears' "Oops...I Did It Again," then you'll surely enjoy this album. Tisdale, best known for being part of Disney Channel's "Suite Life of Zack and Cody" and "High School Musical," steps out from under the shadow of the Mouse with "Headstrong." I'm not saying that it's a terrible album. In fact, a few of the songs, especially "He Said She Said," "Be Good To Me," and "Don't Touch," are pretty good. The bulk of the disc is full of a steady diet of easily digested power pop beats. Some parents may find a few of the songs a little too risque for their children under the age of thirteen. Just keep in mind that this isn't a Disney-produced album that caters to children. It's a mainstream pop effort for Tisdale. With that said, however, most of the songs on here will most likely make it to a junior high dance before you know it.

What prevents me from giving this album more than three stars is the fact that it lacks in originality. A number of these songs, most notably "Not Like That" and "Over It," could easily have been slipped into any other teeny-bopper's album. In other words, there are just a couple of really strong songs and a lot of filler. "Goin' Crazy" seems to have channelled Britney Spears' "Crazy" in that they sound very similar. The title track screams of Gwen Stefani and late 80's hip-hop.

I hate to do this, but I must single out one track as one of the poorest recordings I've ever heard. "Unlove Me" shouldn't have been on this album. It not only reveals with glaring perfection the limits of Tisdale's voice, but it also cheapens the entire album as well.

Headstrong is a good start for Ashley Tisdale's career. She's 21 and it is about time she broke away from the restricting Disney label. Her vocals are decent compared to that of Hilary Duff.

Headstrong brings back the pop that we all want to hear again. Many of the tracks are catchy and are fun to dance to. In fact there have been several remixes of the spectacular "Be Good To Me". I think that some of the tracks outshine the others. My personal favorites are "So Much For You", "Be Good To Me", and "Don't Touch [The Zoom Song]".

This CD is a mixture of pop and ballads. However it is evident that Ashley Tisdale is better at singing pop songs than ballads. "Unlove You" somewhat stretches beyond Ashley's vocal range. I think if she didn't try to oversing the song it would have been more decent. "Love Me For Me" is her best ballad on the CD. "Suddenly" is a good song to me (a little cliche-ish, but sweet), but you either like it or you don't. I think that "Suddenly" was a good way to end the CD.

Ashley Tisdale may not have the voice of Mariah Carey, but she has a good voice. However I hoped her music would be a lot like her renditions of "Kiss The Girl" and "Last Christmas". Those songs showcased her voice better and still retained a catchy pop sound.Ashley Tisdale has a good career ahead of her and she no longer needs to depend on Disney after her publicity from High School Musical.

I was worrying whether there would be pressure from Disney to pull the explicit version of "He Said She Said" from the album, and when iTunes came out with the edited, kiddie, teeny version I was getting alarmed. Could this awesome version just be a bootleg and won't see a legitimate release? Add to that the decision to delay the release of the music video. I was glad when I listened to the album version and there it is - "one night" instead of "one day" and "touching and kissing" instead of "dancing and chillin'" - now that's more like it!

As far as the rest of the disc, the songs are catchy, although there are like, a couple ballads that should've been deleted. Overall a great release, and the "explicit" version makes it so much better. A must have.

I found myself wondering whether or not i would enjoy this cd and minus 2 or 3 songs on the CD. I actually enjoyed it among my favorites Don't Touch (The Zoom Song), He Said, She Said, So Much For You and Not Like That. It's a really catchy dance driven cd but it has kind of an R&B flavor to it that should get some play at any dance or whether the mood strikes you. I also enjoyed a couple of the slow songs, but i had more of a blast listening to the uptempo songs. Buy worthy cd no doubt.

I had no idea who Ashley Tisdale was before I heard the single: "He Said She Said". I immediately fell in love with the sugary pop sound and the catchy beat and lyrics. This is bubblegum pop at its finest.
The material on this CD appeals to all audiences and me being 30 years old proves that! LOL She has a decent voice as well - with a great range. There are a lot of the standard pop songs that have excellent beats and quite a few slower ballads that really show off Ashley's voice in them. The melodies are irresistible and you cannot help but tap your toes to these songs. It reminds me of the days of the Debbie Gibson, Tiffany and Expose music where the songs have the good beats, are fun and do not tackle too serious of issues.
This CD is a great guilty pleasure of mine and I cannot stop listening to it.
