Product Description

Former member of O-Town is back with the #1 reality show on MTV, 'There & Back.' 'Ashley Parker Angel has conquered MTV, Z100/NYC, and now TRL. Just listen to the hook... then hear your request lines explode' 'Let U Go' Top 3 Phones @ Z100/NYC.

Amazon.com

So relentlessly catchy is "Soundtrack to Your Life," the single off the relentlessly catchy debut by MTV reality scenester Ashley Parker Angel, that the average vulnerable listener may begin to worry--after weeks of being able to hum nothing else--that it has literally become the soundtrack to her life. This effect can be especially troubling for boy band-haters--Angel, after all, was a founding member of the short-lived 'N Sync-like outfit O-Town--but it shouldn't be. On this solo debut, the flop-haired heartthrob comes across about as boy-band-derived as any recent entry on the modern rock charts. Which is to say, not at all. On opener "Let U Go," A.P.A. comes out rocking hard: elements of pop swirl around, but so do post-punk flourishes (a band like My Chemical Romance might have had a home in his iPod while he was recording). Later the disc takes a turn toward the mainstream, with "Crazy Beautiful," "Beautiful Lie," and "Feel So Alive" sounding as squarely pop--soaring guitars and all--as their titles suggest. But to discount Angel as a rocker because he has a way with a pop hook wouldn't be fair. Overall, this is Goo Goo Dolls-type rock, accessible but best played loud, with a surprisingly sharp edge. "Perfect Now" puts the point across best: In it, our melodic mastermind thoughtfully knocks an overachieving prom queen from her self-satisfied perch. The rub: he's not afraid to drop the "A" word in an early verse. --Tammy La Gorce

Ashley Parker Angel saw success and fame through his participation in a musical group called O Town, the product of a TV reality show about making a boy band. When the group's star faded, so did Angel's, but not his ambition.

Soundtrack to your life is Parker Angel's attempt to forge a solo career free from the auspices of O Town and for a first up effort the signs are encouraging indeed. While O Town was very much is the pop mold 'Soundtrack' rocks and is a lot stronger than anything Parker Angel had previously assosiated with.

The album is a collection of '70s singer/songwriter and '80s college rock and Parker Angel's vocals are reminiscent of a cross between the balladering of Goo Goo Dolls front man John Rzeznik and the front ahead rock of All American Rejects Tyson Ritter.

Let U go is allready a hit single and Soundtrack to your life will be. The album begins pretty rock heavy but perhaps the shining moments are towards the end with two incredibly moving ballads "Where did you go" and the cinematic "Apology"

The album was produced by the Matrix team who have also worked with the likes of Avril Lavigne and Hilary Duff and are no strangers to making hits that garner high radio rotation.

Expect to hear a lot of Ashley Parker Angel over the airwaves this summer.

Well well well, never would I expect to be a fan of a former O-Town member.

In fact, if you told me I would be now, I would laugh in your face.

But, here's the deal. I heard "Let U Go", and bought it on iTunes the same day, and..well lets just say 3 days later it already has 50 plays on my iPod.

I bought the album the day it came out, and honestly, it's the best album this year.

The album starts out with "Let U Go", as most of you have probably already heard. The most rock track on the CD, with a catchy chorus. The CD quickly goes into a catchy pop song, "I'm Better", which is also more rock than the rest of the CD. It keeps getting better as "Soundtrack Of Your Life" comes on, possibly the most catchy song on the album. The lyrics are great, and personally one of my favorites on the CD. "Feels So Alive" is next, keeping the catchy pop-rock tunes coming. Very very catchy song, I love it. "Crazy Beautiful" comes on, and at first I didn't like this song, but it has grown on me. One of my favorites now, I could see this being a single.

"Who Cares" is next, and my favorite on the CD. The song is so different, yet has some familiar sounds. Reminds me a lot of a Beatles song, yet is completely original. I cannot tell you how much I love this song.

"Shades Of Blue" is after, and another amazing song. It was my favorite for awhile, but listening to it too much can get me a little depressed, as the song is extremely sad. Gives me chills everytime I listen to it.

"Beautiful Lie" is good, I'm not attached to the song, but it's another catchy song that's very listenable.

"Perfect Now" is also catchy, and something in it works. A lot of people can relate to this song, as can I.

After months of anticipating this album, I just picked it up at Best Buy an hour ago. My first listen, and I fell in love with a lot of the tracks on this album. It's also worth a mention that Ashley co-wrote every single one of these songs on the album, so we know it's a personal album, and not some songs that were written by others and given to him for the album. My review of each song is below:

1. Let U Go - The debut single from Ashley. When I first hear it a few months ago, I was shocked because we can all safely say nobody really expected this type of song from Ashley, but it suits him well. You can hear the influences from some of his favourite artists on this track. Could have a bit more lyrical depth though. 4.5/5

2. I'm Better - Very catchy song, kind of reminds me of Let U Go in a sense. It's more on the pop side, but it's a song that you just can't help but like. 4/5

3. Soundtrack to Your Life - My personal favourite on the entire album. Lyrically, it's one of my favourite songs I've heard in a long time. The lyrics are very meaningful and gives you inspiration when you're having a bad day. I think even non Ashley fans would really enjoy this one, as pretty much anyone can relate to it. The song is about life in general and it's a message to his 9 month old son, Lyric. "I heard your heartbeat, it took away the fear." 5/5

4. Feel So Alive - Another personal favourite. I remember hearing him sing this one briefly on There and Back, and I really enjoyed the sound. It's up-beat and a great song about when life is changing and your going through difficult times, you still, like the title says, feel so alive. 5/5

5. Crazy Beautiful - Lyrics are cute, I like the theme to this song.

This album showcases Ashley's writing and singing ability and FINALLY allows him the opportunity to show WHY he should be on top of the music charts. The songs are catchy, well written and well produced. One of the BEST album purchases I've made this year!
