Lovato on the right track

Lovato on the right track

Demi Lovato's third studio album is the 19-year-old's first release after time spent in rehabilitation. As with Rihanna, a troubled period has given rise to new depth, reflected in deeply personal, slightly dark numbers. However, despite Lovato's new gravity, Unbroken is a well-balanced celebration of recovery, providing evidence of a return to fun-loving, youthful form.

The party starts with rock-pop opener All Night Long, with Missy Elliott and Timbaland helping to crank up the energy. Lovato benefits greatly from guest artists throughout her album - lyaz lends a smooth R&B feel to You're My Only Shorty, while Jason Derulo's efforts in the powerful duet Together work perfectly to show off Lovato's talent.

Lovato has successfully shed her Disney image, but now has to work hard to stand out in the pop genre. Lovato's powerful voice is best demonstrated on numbers dealing with her emotional journey. Hit single Skyscraper will change people's minds about Lovato, who shows a maturity and power that is sure to win her new fans.

Unbroken is infused with an inspiring sense of Lovato's genuine personality and self-empowerment. The album hopefully signals a new start along the right track for the very talented young artist.
