Product Description

Vanessa Anne Hudgens, the star who portrays Gabriella Montez on the runaway hit "High School Musical," has signed an exclusive recording deal with Hollywood Records. Her debut CD "V" is being released September 26. Said Buena Vista Music Group Chairman Bob Cavallo, "We are delighted to have Vanessa at Hollywood. Not only is she talented, she is tireless in her work ethic and has a vision for her career. People will be very impressed when they hear her voice and see her perform." Certainly, Vanessa is no stranger to performing. She made her feature film debut in Catherine Hardwick's "Thirteen" starring Holly Hunter and Evan Rachel Wood. Most recently she co-starred in the action-adventure film "Thunderbirds" and is a recurring guest star on the Disney Channel's "The Suite Life of Zack & Cody." Vanessa began her acting career in musical theater when she was 8 years old. She has played leading and supporting roles in "Evita," "Carousel," "The Wizard of Oz," "The King and I," "The Music Man," "Cinderella," and "Damn Yankees," among others.

Vanessa Hudgens is not "indescribable," as the MC who opens V proclaims in a hopped-up, hyped-out voice. On the contrary, the smoky-eyed High School Musical star commands a multitude of adjectives--she's adorable, talented, ambitious, and as this debut makes clearer than a set of invisible braces, young. With one foot in the grown-up, club-going world and the other in a powder-pink bedroom with a Barbie under the bed, Hudgens kicks out a crop of hooky and highly accessible tracks here. First single "Come Back to Me" dabbles in a sophisticated breed of disco, "Let's Dance" lets rip a whispery torrent of R-rated come-ons, and "Let Go," bolstered by its girls-night-out lyric, loses its inhibitions beneath an R&B-lite beat. Elsewhere, on tracks no less compelling, Hudgens explores her inner Hilary Duff: "Drive" pops the hood on her pop-anthem side ("As long as I'm alive, I'm gonna drive"), and "Afraid" wrestles with a sense of vulnerability all wrapped up in teen hormones ("Why am I so afraid/I can't see what's come over me"). Split personality or no, Hudgens makes a strong case through her Anna Nalick-reminiscent vocals alone that she's someone worth watching--a lot of emotion pours through her still-developing pipes and, as anybody who saw High School Musical knows, the girl can twirl. -Tammy La Gorce

I bought this CD with my Christmas money, and I was NOT disappointed! It starts out with the first single, COME BACK TO ME, it's a great song, but honestly not the best. Then the cool, layed-back track LET GO comes next. It's about being to lazy, and we can all relate to that! Then things get slow as her second single, SAY OK, which is about being too shy, plays. NEVER UNDERESTIMATE A GIRL is a kind of girls are better than boys tone (I'm a guy) and it's not one of my faves. Then the album really heats up with the song that makes you wanna dance aptly tittled LET'S DANCE. It's a definate favorite! DRIVE is a song about getting away, or 'Breaking Free', get it! It's the second best on the CD. Then AFRAID is another slow song about being shy, but not as good as Say Ok. PROMISE is another song I don't listen to much. It's an upbeat song that's OK. Track number nine, my favorite is WHATEVER WILL BE! It's got outstanding lyrics and her vocals work perfectlyyy with the song! RATHER BE WITH YOU is a cool upbeat song. PSYCHIC is another just ok song about woring about boyfriend troubles. And finally, LOSE YOUR LOVE, rumors of being a third single, it is another great track. Good beat and lyrics. Hear is an overview of the tracks.

1. Come Back to Me (2:46)*

2. Let Go (2:47)*

3. Say OK (3:42)*

4. Never Underestimate a Girl (3:01)^

Vanessa Hudgens came onto the scene a few years ago starring in the hit disney made for tv movie "High School Musical." Many fans were shocked at how good her voice was. It's great compared to other high school musical stars like ashley tisdale or corbin bleu. She and Zac Efton were clearly the most talented out of the bunch. 2 videos came out from this album, the urban-ish "Come Back To Me" and the mellow "Say Okay" (her beau Zac Efton appears in that video). While it may not have had top 40 hits on major radio airplay, "V" is still a pretty good album. Her vocals are clearly the highlight of the album but the production is good too. She shines on songs like "Drive" and "Afraid." I think this album sold the best out of all the high school musical stars and I can see why. It's the best made from any of the disney stars. I normally don't listen to a lot of disney channel music but I like "V." I agree with Anthony Rupert that "Come Back To Me" is the best song on the album. If you were thinking of buying this album do it! You'll enjoy it just like I have.

Format: Audio CD
now in the beggining of the cd u hear "come back to me" a very over exposed song but theres a reason its very catchy even with the sometimes silly lyrics

the song"let go" is a very catchy with some preety true lyrics its obviously one of her best personally i think that at least

"say ok " is a very frustraiting song where sometimes u feel like u want to go to the song writers house and personally punch them.....but the chorus does save the song from true horror

"never underestimate a girl" starts a little weird but in the first verese she picks it up..twords the chorus she gets a little kidish but overall its a preety good song

"lets dance" starts with a good beat and great vocals .....but her voice starts to sound electronic and muffled and the bass is way to loud, with no designated chourus its a little to creepy sounding for my taste

"drive" starts a little emo like but turns very insprirational

the overall theme of the song is very little kidish but the inspriratinal chorus save the song TOTALLY and is actully preety good song (with very good vacals at the end)

"AFraid" is seriuosly one of her best ever, her insprirational words and soothing beat truly hit a nerve and even tho she kinda losses her voice twords the lower notes she very great in this song

"promise" is kinda like "afraid" in the theme and in overall beat ...but her words are just as powerfull and make u put it on repeat for a long time ...though her words are a little odd her chorus and bridge,the song is WONDERFULL

"whatever will be" is reportedly vanessa's faveriote , shes got some good lyrics and preety good vocals...while the chorus"whatever will be, will be"is kind of confusing shes very good overall..

Format: Audio CD
"Y'all need to get ready to hear the unbelievable, indescribable, Vanessa Hudgens," raps a guest star on Vanessa Anne Hudgen's (High School Musical) newest album, simply titled 'V'. Yet, after Hudgen's catchy R&B inspired single "Come Back To Me" ends I failed to see the unbelievable singer mentioned as the first track began. Hudgen's has musical capability, yet her CD fails to compare to earlier album's released by other Disney acts.

After "Come Back To Me", Vanessa sticks to the R&B vibe and let's loose on "Let Go" - a girls night out song that has a creative big band backtrack. "Say Ok", the album's first ballad, fails to bring any emotion. The guitar heavy girl anthem "Never Underestimate A Girl" comes next - the song is undoubtedly a tweenage spin-off of Destiny's Child's "Independent Woman". A beat driven "Let's Dance" comes next, but the muffled singing and hard guitar beats ruin the song. Hudgen's is at her best on the pop-rock songs "Drive", "Afraid", and "Rather Be With You", which resemble early Hilary Duff material. 'V' ends with "Lose Your Love" - a song reminiscent of Beyonce's singles. Other tracks include "Whatever Will Be", "Promise", and "Psychic".

Although 'V' has its faults, it's a solid effort; and even though Hudgen's has proved she has no problem pulling off any type of music, her next album should stray from dabbling in to many varieties of music as 'V' does.
