This recording is evidently pre-Idol (2009) but only recently released (2012). Crystal's vocals shine in this acoustic and minimal production. The lyrics are reflective and some may be biographical (for instance, "Mama"). Given my experience of Bowersox in recent years, her vocal range and power are not demonstrated in this album. Also missing for me is the diversity of genres she typically engages. Perhaps this album shows these limitations because only 5 songs are on the CD. I missed hearing Crystal rock! If this album reflects the pre-Idol Bowersox (which was good), then Crystal learned much during the Idol experience.

You can purchase and download the individual songs cheaper than you can buy the album. The CD packaging is also basic: cardboard cover (shrink-wrapped) and the CD. No liner notes, plastic case or additional pics.

"Beautiful!"

Crystal's voice is so clear and so beautiful on this CD it's hard to put it into words. It is extremely hard for me to pick a favorite but I'm leaning towards "Baby." "Get Me Out," just a few seconds into that song I was feeling the lyrics and relating to times I felt that same way. Crystal has a way of painting and coloring a song rather than writing one. "Mama" I think is the most heart wrenching song. A child's longing for her mother's love.

"Once Upon A Time" Sometime painful, sometimes haunting, although there is one thing consistant throughout the entire EP. Bowersox' beautiful beautiful voice!!
I give it, **********

Crystal's voice is like no other. It is so unique and it is so inviting. I LOVE all of these songs. They are sung without a whole bunch of distractions through noisy instruments so we are able to hear her vocals sharp and clear and anybody who knows anything KNOWS CRYSTAL'S VOICE IS HER WEAPON OF CHOICE! I will be so excited when her new CD comes out with all new songs; she is both an amazing singer and songwriter. And even though I heard MaMa many times over each time cuts to the heart just like the first time. All of these songs are excellent. Crystal should have won Idol but why cry over spilled milk?! She is so raw and real; how refreshing in this techno age!

"Once Upon A Time" By Crystal Bowersox is as the title says. "Amazing" It's all Crystal and Frankie. No over done songs here! Raw and emotional. :)

Although you cannot deny that Crystal has a beautiful voice, her true talent lies in her ability infuse emotions and thought provoking lyrics in her songs. I really enjoyed her first album but I think this EP really shows off her true talents. All of these songs tell a story and many that we can relate to. It would have been easy for her to write a sweet lullaby for her son but the song Baby also shows the fears and worries of a new mother. PERFECT!! I truly hope more people will come to appreciate her music. She truly has a gift that should not go unnoticed.

The first time I listened to Crystal Bowersox on one of those talent shows I fell in love with her voice and her soul. I liked her voice because it was different, much like Janis Joplin's voice was. She is full of blues and soul which I really like. Her commercial with B. B. King for diabetic products was awesome. I only wish they would do something together musically. May be they have. I'd love to hear that. I liked her first album better than I did this one, so I only gave her four stars. I think she was looking to put out a little different album. It's still good, but I really liked the first one better. If you are a fan of hers I'd recommend it. But, please, Crystal, give us more of your blues, soul, and beautiful sound!

Lyrical, musical, and heartfelt music sung naturally and beautifully....with only Crystal's guitar and Frankie's bass. CD quality/musical clarity is excellent. I am so looking forward to Crystal's upcoming sophomore album.
