Clarkson's Addicted from her in my opinion soon-to-be-iconic Breakaway album reconfirmed what I'd long believed- that real music is good old ROCK. Dark, addictive and thrilling. And although the-well 'chick' song Breakaway is obscenely popular, it is Addicted where you here the full vocal range of Ms. Clarkson. And it is stunning.
Turned out- it could and it did. They murdered The Rolling Stones. Except for two of them.
Wild Horses was blah, Under my Thumb- grotesque as a reggae number (again- WHY?).
Angie was interestingly good. Almost achingly so. Aaron Kelly was spot on with this song.
You Can't Always Get What You Want was actually pretty solid. That's all. No more, no less.
