Kristinia DeBarge's Exposed is Unmemorable


I listened to this album by Kristinia DeBarge quite a few times. Every morning I would play it. I played it over and over again not because I liked it, but because, for the life of me, I could not remember the songs the day after I listened to them, nor their titles. They are generic, unmemorable, and completely forgettable. They are good background music at a party since DeBarge has a nice and melodic voice. But, there is nothing truly original in these songs and each songs is hardly different from the others in the CD. This album is another in the large pool of dime a dozen artists trying to break out in the same Pop/R&B genre.

Kritinia DeBarge has a nice voice and the songs are ok, but there is nothing exceptional.

The songs I found to be really good are: 'Sabotage' and 'Goodbye', not because of the lyrics, but the somewhat catchy tune. Although for 'Goodbye' it may just be that I just like the "Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye" part of it.

The rest blend together undistinguishable from one another.

Another reviewer calls the album "unremarkable" and "generic"... he is completely right. He writes a dead on review about this album (check out the review by Kevin Nicholls "jaded, aging hipster).

I just hope her next album is more original.
