Product Description


Kelly Clarkson could have played her American Idol-propelled career much differently, languishing in the role of dippy ingénue or shunting her musical development by leaning too heavily on overnight stardom. Instead she dug in her heels and allowed good sense (or a good manager) to steer, and somewhere Simon Fuller and the rest of the TV gang ought to be smiling. Credit Breakaway, which couldn't be more aptly titled--the sophomore set represents a seismic split from the thin if pretty stuff debut Thankful set forth. Here we encounter Clarkson as superstar, with the humility that made her likable on the first disc tucked tightly under her arm. First single and leadoff track "Breakaway" topped the pop charts on arrival, and its rock-friendly thumps, dips, and rolls don't wear out their welcome; they blend, instead, into the firestorm of beats and guitars that is "Since U Been Gone," another shout-it-out rocker. Those songs set the tone for the rest of the disc in all its fury: The innocence is long gone, numbers including "Addicted" and "Hear Me" say collectively, and Clarkson's of a mind to kick it. The big, expressive voice ringed by the occasional high-pitch trill--the one that prompted millions to get behind her on Idol--doesn't dip entirely off the radar, though. On "Where Is Your Heart," and the stunning live closer "Beautiful Disaster," it's there in full force--a hint, maybe, that despite the wide, smart career step Breakaway represents, her fans come first. -Tammy La Gorce

5.0 out of 5 stars Best of American Idol franchise! June 5 2012
By C. Preston TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Well Kelly Clarkson has done it again with this CD. I think she has gotten even better over time since this CD came out. It was a good CD though & still sounds good today!

1.Breakaway: This is a cool little ditty; makes you want to take off in the car & head to the beach! Good pop tune!

2.Since U Been Gone: This song got alot of radio play here in Canada as well as the video for it. It showed her potential as a punk/rocker chick also even though it's a pop tune. She displayed she could be an American version of Canada's Avril Lavigne if she wanted to. I'm sure this track played in alot of high school dances & college dorms!

3.Behind These Hazel Eyes: This is Kelly pouring her heart out...letting us into her heart...showing the baggage that she holds onto. This is another great pop tune & was popular when it came out.

4.Because of U: I love this song. Such a touching heartfelt ballad which she is so gifted at conveying to the listener. My heart just breaks listening to this song...wishing that whatever transpired in her life that gave these lyrics their birth didn't have to have happened to her. But at the same time I'm sure writing this song was cathartic for her. Just outstanding vocally, lyrically, & conceptually.

5.Addicted: No one can tell the story of love lost, love's hurts and the repercussions of that like Kelly. This to me is one of Kelly's best songs. It has been on my favorite playlist since I got this CD and likely won't be going off of it in my lifetime. Cool overlapping vocals, and just insightful, self-reflective ability to understand one's emotions in the thick of it! 10+++++++++++++++

6.Where Is Your Heart: Another absolutely gorgeous ballad from Kelly.

5.0 out of 5 stars best album in a long time Feb. 28 2006
Format:Audio CD
This is an impressive follow up to Kelly's first album. 'Thankful' was a decent album but 'Breakaway' blew me away. I've owned it for over a year now and I still listen to it ALL THE TIME. It's just that good. It's on of those albums I'll never get tired of.

5.0 out of 5 stars Songs with more edge to them this time Jan. 1 2005
By Andrea
Format:Audio CD
This CD has a very different sound compared to her first one, with a rock edge to it. The songs are more up beat and very catchy. Some slow songs as well, but overall I think the rock style suits her better. I love this cd and haven't been able to stop playing it since I got it. It's just that awesome!

4.0 out of 5 stars Awesome sophomore Nov. 13 2005
Format:Audio CD
I didn't really care for Kelly Clarkson's first album, but this one is definitely awesome.
Kelly carefully did her job while making this album, teaming up with some of the hottest songwriters in the business right now. (Avril Lavigne, Ben Moody, Chantal Kreviazuk, Raine Maida etc.), and in the end, you come out with a decent album. Many compare it to Avril's latest album, Under My Skin, which is a bit obvious because she teamed up with most of the same songwriters (including Avril herself).
There are a few filler tracks, like "Gone" "Walk Away" and "I Hate Myself for Losing You", but the rest of the album is amazing. Its properly titled "Breakaway" because she's breaking away from her crap that she released on her first album.
The reason why this album is so much better, is because Kelly took her time to get this album properly produced and written. I think they just rushed her first album, because they wanted to release something quickly from the "first winner of american idol".
all in all, don't let the fact that shes an American Idol winner trick u, this album is definitely awesome. I really like the bonus live track "Beautiful Disaster".
