Teen starlet Lindsay Lohan is often placed at the end of the pack with her actor-singer peers Hilary Duff and Ashlee Simpson. While her commercial success would suggest that her particular rock-pop placement is correct, the quality of Lohan’s second record should cause some to reevaluate the pecking order. A Little More Personal (RAW) lives up to its title and shines a little more light on Lohan’s public struggles with fame and family. The first track and single, “Confessions of a Broken Heart (Daughter to Father)” is a passionate message song to her absentee father. She does much better with this theme later in the anthemic tracks “Black Hole” and “My Innocence,” which both hit thrilling highs in their guitar-driven choruses. Sure, cynics have a point that Lohan wouldn’t be making major label records with her limited vocal talents unless she were already a movie star, but when you make a good record, you make a good record. Enough said. (Casablanca)
