The title of Demi Lovato's fourth LP promises a "personal" album, and Lovato gets songwriting credits on nine songs. But make no mistake: This is industrial-strength pop, and all the better for it. The songwriters include hitmaking heavyweights like Ryan Tedder and Rami Yacoub; the choruses boom; the production has a high-gloss sheen. It's predictable stuff – sassy songs, lovelorn songs, a couple of pop-psych pep talks – but Lovato is good company, and her voice has gustiness and character. Catchiest tune: the single "Heart Attack." Gratuitous patriotic anthem: "Made in the USA." Lyric most likely to confuse the kids: "You try to take me home like you're DiMaggio."
