I finally got a chance to sit down and listen to High Hopes & Heartbreak, the new album by Season 7 Idol, Brooke White.
Frankly, I thought 19 were a bunch of dumbasses not to sign Brooke after her season ended last year–with your Colbie Caillats and Ingrid Michaelsons doing well on the charts. And I bet judge Randy Jackson thought so too, as he picked up the ball and executive produced Brooke’s post-Idol album, a sweet, breezy ode to those singer-songwriters of the 1970’s like Carol King and Joni Mitchell.
The songs on this disc wear like a comfortable, but classic pair of shoes. While her style is throw-backey, she doesn’t sound dated. I mean, how dated can a cover of the Kings Of Leon hit “Use Somebody” be? Not dated at all, peeps.
