Kimberley Locke's second album is very much like her first. Like One Love, released three full years prior, Based on a True Story is a polished, professional set of mature pop songs, and though several songs are samey and not all that memorable, not one is poor, and they all get by on Locke's talent and likable nature. There are hints of contemporary country, straight-ahead rock, and inspirational adult contemporary, while the most modern-sounding songs fall into the realm of urban-oriented dance-pop -- like "Doin' It Tonight," a Neptunes knockoff that is actually a few years too late, and "Supawoman," which might have been written with Mary J. Blige's "Be Without You" in mind. It's a safe, pleasant album that should satisfy Locke's fans, though it probably will not excite them. Included is a bonus cover of Freda Payne's "Band of Gold," a song she performed very successfully on American Idol with Frenchie Davis.

First of all, I don't typically write reviews for albums, nor am I the typical AMerican Idol album buyer. However, if you are looking for a great album, with a great voice, great songs, and something to listen THE WHOLE WAY THROUGH, then buy this album. If you like "8th world Wonder," you will love this album. Most songs are similar in sound as "8th," what I would call Adult Rock. Kimberly not only has a great voice, that is very powerful, she co-wrote most of the songs. I can't pick a favorite, but I will give you a rundown of the tracks on this album: 1. Change - This is an amazing song, amazing voice. Most artists now when you listen to their vocals, there are several layers of their voice to make it stronger. She does not have that....her voice is that powerful. 2. Any Which way - Rock song with a great chorus and a soaring bridge at the end! It will get you going. 3. Trust Myself - again, another rock song. This one will have you believing in yourself. Again, awesome bridge at the end! 4. Supawoman - to be honest, when this song was released last year as a fast song, I didn't like it. However, this is a slowed down version and I have found myself addicted to it. Listen to the lyrics. 5. Doin' It tonight - a simple dance song. At first is seemed too simple, but I love her lower range in this song. You will start dancing when you hear it. 6. Friend Like You - DOn't be fooled by the title....this is not a happy song, however, she uses the Rock sound perfectly here. A great song. 7. Fall - This will bring tears to your eyes. Beautiful slow song with amazing, powerful vocals. 8. I don't wanna know - Again, the rock sound works so well for her. Good song. 9. Talk about us - this is more R&B than the rest of the album, but it is a nice change up. 10. You don't have to be strong - Blues song, very nicely done. 11. Everyday Angels - A feel good anthem! Nicely done 12. Band of Gold - WOW! She truly has a gift to make any song great! This album is worth it. It's not like any other AI album. You will be listening to this album over and over. Let me know if you can pick just one favorite!
