Synopsis

Album Description
Two years in the making, Lesley's Religion Music/Jive/Zomba debut Unbeautiful runs the gamut from hook-saturated Power Pop, the breakout lead single, 'I'm Gone, I'm Going'' to stratosphere climbing ballads 'Slow Goodbye', 'Thinking Out Loud'. While she doesn't discount the chance Unbeautiful afforded her to work with a host of name producers and songwriters, primarily executive-producer Max Martin (Kelly Clarkson, P!nk) Lesley's heart, soul and skill ring clear through each of the album's 13 hits-in-waiting. 'For me, it's always been about the big questions: `What is this song ultimately going to mean to someone?' or `What does this song tell people about the road you've traveled?''

CD Reviews

Unbeautiful Is Beautiful
Elizabeth Wonderham | 06/30/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I heard Lesley Roy on mtv's show Exiled. I figured to get the cd, and it turned out that I really liked it a lot. I think she is a mix between Kelly Clarkson and Avril Lavigne. To Me Lesley Roy has her own unique sound. I like that how she writes lyrics. The songs on Unbeautiful you can relate to in your own life.
My favorite songs on Unbeautiful are:
1. Unbeautiful
2. Thinking Out Loud
3. Misfit
4. Make It Back
5. Come To Your Senses"
Great CD

"I first heard and saw Lesley Roy on a VH1 video with her song I'm Going, I'm Gone. I fell in love with it immediately and then downloaded it. I then decided to order her debut CD after looking her up on Amazon. Wow, this CD got really great after a few listens. I love every song on the album which rarely happens to me, especially with an artist I purchase on a whim. This is one buy that really paid off. I have to say that the song Unbeautiful is my favorite. I can listen to it over and over and this CD has'nt left my car stereo in months, so that is something as I can get bored quickly. I guess Lesley Roy kind of sounds like a huskier Kelly Clarkson. Her songs are pop, but with a bit of an edge that makes them endure longer than the average pop song. Her voice can sound quite husky and rough, but she can also soar which is a wonderful mix. She seems super talented and I can't wait until she has her next album. I hope this one sells well. I highly recommend it."
Simply outstanding

"This album justs get better and better the more I listen to it.From the opening track I'm gone I'm going to the album closer Come Back this debut album from Lesley Roy is full of highlights too many to mention. This is an album of big choruses (title track and second single Unbeautiful will make you very happy indeed), great vocals(Come Back, Psycho Bitch,Dead But Breathing, Come To Your Senses)and a Desmond Child track (Misfit).An album two years in the making, it's been worth the wait. If you buy only one album this year then it has to be Unbeautiful. If you like classic rock tunes with great vocals the this is the album for you. Buy it, you'll be glad you did."
