CD Reviews

LOCKE-D AND LOADED WITH POTENTIAL HITS
Alan Dorfman | DELRAY BEACH, FL United States | 05/01/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Former American Idol finalist and current contestant on VH1's Fit Club, Kimberley Locke is finally getting, both musically and physically, comfortable in her own skin. Comfortable enough to even start writing her own material. Still, who would have guessed that it's the heart of a rocker chick that beats in her chest?

Though not brilliant, the CD "Based On A True Story" has a collection of songs that upstages the new Avril Lavigne CD and gives a hint of what we'd like to hear from the upcoming Kelly Clarkson CD.

"I Don't Wanna Know," "Trust Myself," "Any Which Way," "You Don't Have To Be Strong" and "Everyday Angels" are all potentially pop/rock hits with the caveat that we have yet to have a black singer succeed commercially in that marketplace. Heck, it's hard enough to find a successful black rock band that's won that battle. But maybe Ms. Locke's AI following can help bridge that gap.

But the label seems to be hedging its bets, including the pure cliche Destiny's Child pop of "Supawoman" and "Talk About Us" (for which Kimberley provides a strong vocal) as if tossing bones to black radio. And, if all else fails, there's the unchanged, unnecessary remake of Freda Payne's "Band Of Gold" (again, strongly sung) that ends the CD and should find favor with the Adult Contemporary listeners that made Kimberley's "8th World Wonder" a #1 song.

I am hopeful that radio will turn out to be color-blind and "Based On A True Story" will garner the acclaim it deserves. I hope so but I am doubtful. Still it's a huge step forward in Kimberley's development as an artist."

"Kimberley Locke's second CD "Based On A True Story" is another pleasant 'non-winning' American Idol CD. I'm still torn as to whether I like the first or second CD better, but I am definitely into this CD. I have already given it 3 listens.

Starting with "Change" - a song that should make an appearance on VH1's Top 20 countdown this weekend, I HOPE! "Change" is a beautiful single. "Trust" is also a great - more rock type - single. I think "Trust could get radio airplay, as well. "Supawoman" - as far as I recall - was to have be the first single from this CD. I'm not sure if it was ever officially released. "Fall" - another pretty song. "Talk About Us" - has a cute r&b feel to it. "You Don't Have To Be Strong" - is one of my favorites from this CD. Very soulful: Kimberley's voice songs amazing on this one. Finally, the last song on the CD, "Band of Gold" - True K Lo fans will remember her strong duet with Frenchie and then her final 3 performance of this great classic."

"Kimberley Locke has a special voice, it is soulful, rich, and she can sing any genre of music... This new cd is really very good,, my favorite tracks are Change, You don't have to Be Strong, Fall, which could be a big hit if radio would only play it, and Band of Gold..this whole cd is well done and of course sung,, it would be so refreshing to see her do really well, but there is resistance to her and her cd for some reason..but as far as talent goes she is right at the top...Much Success to Kim!"
