Crystal Bowersox – All That For This – AOL Listening Party (AUDIO)

Listen to a full stream of Crystal Bowerox’s sophomore album, All This For That, right now on AOL Music. The American Idol season 9 runner-up weaves wonderful stories with a folksy vibe and a tinge of country.

Crystal co-wrote all but one of the record’s twelve songs. The lone cover is a good one–The Sunday’s 1990 tune “Here’s Where the Story Ends.”  The album also includes a duet with Jakob Dylan of the Wallflowers titled “Stitches.”

The album is set to drop on March 26th. Don’t miss Crystal’s appearance on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno the night before, NBC 11:35/10:35c.

    This album is pure artistry…”I AM” was a favorite of mine since she performed it at “Power to the Peaceful” during her first post Idol gig, but this version is even more beautiful.

    “Fall’s In To Place” was the surprise for me…I thought that the version I heard in Toledo with her High School’s chorus was going to be best ever, but the album version is the same arrangement… pleasant surprise.

    I like the live version of “Shine” better, she leaves it all on the stage and reaches for the rafters. this version is beautiful too, just more restrained.

    No filler on this album, I love every song!!!

    I like how she turned Home into a very percussive pop song. Her producer Steve Berlin really did a great job on this album.

    I’ve always liked Crystal and she has a magnificent voice, but I find that I don’t yearn to play her music. She’s so earnest all the time. I feel the heavy-lifting. I was curious to hear this album. My verdict is that this is exactly where she should be, but I’m still not interested. She never comes to a point in her songwriting where I think – woah! That thought never occurred to me! She’s still very young, so it’s possible that her skills will deepen.

    songsungblue, have you heard songs from her EP, “Once Upon a Time”?
    It has some of her best songwriting, IMO, especially this one:

    She has many other unreleased songs that haven’t made her albums. I don’t always agree with some of the choices she makes ;)

    If it helps, she did all her own background vocals, so she’s drowning out herself at least!
    I would also prefer she producer her own songs and release them the way they are, but radio would not play them. Maybe they will now.
