American Idol Season 2: All Time Classic American Love Songs by Various Artists I Love What American Idol Has Done For Singing! Interested in visiting your favorite contestants from the second season of American Idol? Then this is the album for you, but be forewarned that something is lost in the translation from the small screen to the compact disc. Simon Cowells scathing comments and Paula Abduls head tossing add to the human drama; without those visual embellishments, the recorded version falls flat. Sure this is a talented bunch, but the material is mundane, with few of the finalists straying from the traditional arrangements. But when they do, its sometimes worse. Ruben Stoddards rendition of the Carpenters hit Superstar reeks of misplaced sincerity. The best cut on the disc is Kimberly Caldwells throaty cover of Roberta Flacks Killing Me Softly With His Song, which gives the song some well-needed grit. And while Julia Dematos voice is no match for Etta Jamess full-bodied version of At Last, Demato gives the classic a fetching kittenish spin. -- Jaan Uhelszki As a professional singer and Voice Teacher, I am so thrilled to see how American Idol has given the art of singing such a jump start in these last few years. These American Idol CDs and programs are filled with so much varying talents. From Hard rock to Country, America is becoming interested in identifying true talent. As an Opera Singer myself I can still enjoy the gifts of other genres and am sad to hear when others look down upon the show. Also, as a voice teacher of many styles I can't stress enough the need to my own students for them to develop themselves as a "Complete Unique Package". Finding their own true niche and style including: voice type, genre, best repertoire, to the the right audition outfit. American Idol teaches the same theories. Be true to yourself and your voice to get your best shot at this business of singing. I am an advocat for AI and all shows that encourage the high developement of arts in America. We come from a society that watched sports religiously on telievision (which is great) but there are so many talents to support including singing out there amongst us. American Idol gives artists and viewers a fantastic opportunity.
