"Fairly routine country music fare, and quite disappointing. Julianne adopts a highly affected southern accent on most songs - it sounds forced and artificial (That Song In My Head, About Life, Hello). It's like you're not hearing Julianne, you're hearing her impression of how a country singer should sound. She would have been better advised to sing using her natural voice. Often the lyrics that emanate from her mouth are not at all believable (Jimmy Ray McGee, About Life). That might be okay if she was recording an album of cover songs, but these are new compositions. To sum things up, Julianne Hough - although a decent singer - is a country music poser.
Best song: Help Me, Help You.
Worst Songs: You, You, You; Hide Your Matches; My Hallelujah Song."

"This album is a good beginning for Ms. Hough. She's got a good, solid voice. The songs are good too. They're not sappy or just fluff like one might expect from such a young lady. There's not many uptempo "rockers," the album tends more toward a measured tempo. However, those songs are not boring or tedious. The lyrics are good and the songs hold the listener's attention; the album doesn't ever get tedious. Good stuff here. The dancer is off on the right foot with this album."
Ode to Joy, Writ Modern

"To be honest, I was predisposed to dislike Julianne Hough (Pronounced "Huff.") She had everything I dislike about modern Nashville music: young, pretty, blonde, not a songwriter, known for something besides music. She brought everything to the table that needed to be cleared.
But then I saw and heard her. Imagine a dark and rainy day; midnight at mid-day, with a downpour filling the streets to overflowing. There, in the midst of it, is Julianne Hough, skipping along, covered by a shining sunshine umbrella, clean, dry and happy. Despite your darkest angry resentments, you cannot dislike her; in fact, you cannot help but be grateful only to have seen her.
Silly? Yes. Implausible? Yes, but there it is.
The songs are not timeless, philosophical or deep, although several are catchy and fun. Barely 20 years of age, Hough is not a powerful singer, although she is virtually flawless technically. But this album isn't about the music. It isn't about the marketing. It isn't about anything at all. It is simply a celebration of a very happy, charming, likable young lady whose joie de vivre one cannot help but share."
