Description:
Recording information: BAMF Studios, LA; Budapest, Hungary; SOMD Studios; Soundmaster Studios, Ltd.; Soundtrack Studios, NYC; Strawberrybee Studios, Los Angeles; Superspy Studios; The Lair. Photographers: Miranda Penn Turin; Amber Gray. Selena Gomez's debut album wasn't a breakout success, but it proved to be a long-running one. Indeed, when the follow-up, A Year Without Rain, was released a year later, Kiss & Tell was still riding high at number 58 on the Billboard Top 200.

Even the uptempo, relatively happy songs like "Off the Chain" have a minor-key, slightly gloomy feel. Partly this is down to arrangements that favor the kind of thick synthesizers that any self-respecting pop song had to have in 2010. Where Kiss sported a slightly retro feel and plenty of guitars in the mix, Year is totally of the moment, right down to the Auto-Tune and the guest raps. The shift in sound may come as a disappointment to anyone who loved Kiss, but this is still a very good pop record. Once you realize it's going to be a different kind of listen and you get used to the mood, it's easy to fall back in love thanks to Gomez's consistently strong vocals. She has plenty of power in her pipes, but never oversings or gets too heavy. There's nothing she can do with the embarrassingly co...
