[New Releases] Selena Gomez & the Scene

테스트

There comes a point when a Disney or Nickelodeon star tries to make the transition to official recording artist. This is Selena Gomez’s moment.

Musically speaking, Gomez is no Miley Cyrus or Vanessa Hudgens - that’s because she’s better. She’s got a decent voice, and showcased it on last year’s “A Year Without Rain,” a pop ballad that still sounds good.

There’s nothing as good as that on “When the Sun Goes Down,” Gomez’s third album with her band the Scene.

“Who Says,” a song about self-worth, is the best track, but there aren’t any other songs like it.

Gomez gets help from some heavyweights: She has writing credits from Britney Spears and Katy Perry, but those tunes sound like leftovers.

She’s better off collaborating with singers who have yet to reach diva stardom: Singer-songwriter Priscilla Renea co-wrote “Who Says,” and English singer Pixie Lott lends a hand on the enjoyable groove “We Own the Night.”
