Now, I know I previously stated that I purchased it at midnight on release day from iTunes, but I don't know if I mentioned how much I'm loving it (actually....it's possible that I did). Either way, the album kicks some ass. I don't know yet if I'll like it more than "Breakaway" which is most definitely in any Top 10 list I'd make (and possibly number one for being stuck on an island...because we all have obsessions with making "if I were stuck on an island" lists...).
The reason for this entry, however, was a quote from Simon Cowell on the Wikipedia page: "She has one of the best pop voices in the world right now. What she sold in the U.K., Europe, Asia had nothing to do with American Idol. It had everything to do with the fact that she made a great record and she's got an incredible voice. She's not a girl who got lucky in a talent competition; we got lucky to find her."
I just thought it was nifty.
