A Little More Personal (Raw)

As the title suggests, Lindsay Lohan makes a fatal mistake on her second album: She tries to, like, express herself. The album de-emphasizes the (very) guilty pop pleasures of her 2004 debut in favor of leaden I-hate-you-Daddy laments such as "Confessions of a Broken Heart" and "My Innocence." Lohan has a much bigger — though less distinctive — voice than her sometime-pal Ashlee Simpson, but she sounds like a high school talent-show winner on the album's two classic-rock covers: a sprightly take on "I Want You to Want Me" and a karaoke-faithful version of "Edge of Seventeen."
