Actress/singer/model Ashley Tisdale, as anyone under 15 knows, is Sharpay from High School Musical, and prior to the release of Headstrong, she'd already scored three singles that charted in Billboard's Top 100 -- which makes her first LP a debut in name only. While a bit edgier musically than Musical's fare, this album offers a PG-rated take on teen pop, loaded with driving beats, hip-hop-inflected vocals, the occasional ballad, and moments that recall songs by Rihanna, Aaliyah, and other mono-monickered R&B vixens. The lyrical subject matter, however, doesn't step over the "kissin' and touchin' " variety -- at least not on this album (Tisdale's producers have tackled this issue in a complicated fashion, as there are reportedly three different versions of the album's first single, "He Said, She Said" -- with differing sets of lyrics -- making the rounds). This album, however, is aimed straight for the parent-approved zone, a lite take on Britney-fied hip-pop that big on sing-along, call-and-response vocals (there are lots of "Hey!"s and "Uh-huh!"s) and lyrics that generally don't stray beyond fun, friends, parties, and boys. It's tailor-made for the High School Musical crowd, and should help Tisdale's star to rise even higher.

Really great CD!!! Love just about every song!!! Ashley Tisdale is very talented!

I have been waiting for this CD for a while now...when I heard the 2 songs pre-released on iTunes i was like WHAT! these are bad! she can do better! but after hearing them again, and all of her other songs, i realized i was wrong. this CD is awesome! some songs are better than others, but the CD is way worth the money if your at all interested in ashley, or some catchy songs. there's upbeat pop songs that are fun to dance to, but also slower songs that really open her voice, have great lyrics, and are fun to sing. all in all, a really good CD! good work ashley! :)

Be careful with this one. I purchased the "He Said She Said" single on Itunes and saw Ashley perform it in concert and was extremely disappointment to hear the "revised" lyrics to the song. There is a reason she didn't sing the new lyrics live...they are not appropriate for her audience. If you are thinking Zach and Cody, Ashley Tisdale...think again. The cd is ok for teenagers but I would not recommend it for anyone younger.

I really likes Ashley in High School Musical as a singer and dancer, and in the Suite Life as an actor. I especailly liked her voice and vocals. But the songs on this CD are way different than High School Musical. If you like Fergie, get this. If you like Vanessa Hudgens, dont get this

Okay, I loved ashley tisdale in high school musical and she is great on the suite life of zack and cody but this cd makes her seem like a wanna-be brittany spears. the songs in high school musical were more for her. I am not going to say she stinks and she doesnt.. but who wants to be a brittany spears--no offence.

ashley tisdale music remids me of lindsay lohan speak album. The best songs on here are he said she said, we'll be together, headstrong, good to me, no like that, so much for you an i will be me. I hope her album debuts at number one instead of fall out boys album.

OMG, I can't Waite for this cd! It is going to be soooo good! I am so going to buy it, and you should to!

I adore Ashley! She is so pretty and is one of my role models. I haven't bought her CD yet but I am so getting it today! I cannot wait. I think that she will do better than Vanessa Hudgens because Vanessa Hudgens didn't even sell 1 million albums and I have Vanessa's album too. Good Job Ashley!

Many would agree that Ashley Tisdale is a very talented actress,but how is her debut album? Well, Ashley may not be the best singer out there by far,but she certainly has enough singing talent to pull off a very respectable album. Although this is not really my type of music, I can appreciate many types of music and several of the songs on the album are very catchy and have really great messages and melodies to them. ex. (we'll be together, suddenly) It has a very unique style and sound from other pop/rock albums which make it all the better. Her voice will ,I believe, certainly develop and improve in the future, but overall not a bad debut album by any means.
