Pop Top: White's first CD offers no heartbreak
CD » Sometimes it's pleasant to enjoy an album as quiet background music, and "High Hopes & Heartbreak" by "American Idol" alum Brooke White fits that category. None of the 12 songs jumps has hit qualities but all are enjoyable and a few have something to say: "Radio, Radio," "California Song," and "Little Bird" all proved to be interesting arrangements. White has a beautiful voice, reminiscent of a young Carly Simon, and though a few songs felt slightly overproduced, this is a worthy first effort.
