Album Review: A Little More Personal (Raw) by Lindsay Lohan
Fairly Good, Based on 1 Critic
AllMusic - 60 Based on rating 6/10
This compulsion to sound serious and mature sank Ashlee's I Am Me, but A Little More Personal (Raw) is by far a better record than that, because Lindsay, at least on this album, has one thing that Ashlee does not: conviction. She really means it, man, when she sings about her father, or when she sings about alienation and heartbreak, and this emotional investment when married to the duly professional, straight-ahead songcraft of her collaborators makes for interesting listening. Again, that's not the same thing as fun, and the glossy gloom becomes a bit overbearing fairly quickly into the album, at which point it's hard not to marvel at the fact that Lindsay is expending so much energy on confessing matters that are already part of the public record.
