SAM LOMBARDI: Take Your Pic: CD

Picture if you will, Kelly Clarkson weaned on Johnny Thunders. Well, maybe not weaned, but told by some A&R weasel to dress that way because it’ll sell. Yep, this is pure teen pop crap. There’s quite the team of writers here. Some songs have up to five or six writers. Too bad Sam herself is only credited on four of them. The first song was kind of catchy (in an embarrassing, shameful kind of way), but I was redeemed when I couldn’t stand the rest of it. This should be standard mall fare in no time.
