About this item

James Durbin was the default "rocker" on the 2011 season of American Idol and played the role well, covering tracks by Queen, Judas Priest, and others. He did not win, but finished in fourth place as a fan favorite for his soaring vocals and faux-hawked, "post-grunge meets hair metal" image. Durbin's post-Idol debut, 2011's Memories of a Beautiful Disaster, is much more pop than rock, and in that sense a fairly true representation of Durbin's rock theatricality and knack for wailing away on tunes packed with radio-friendly hooks. One might have expected him to deliver a dark, post-grunge album a la his AmIdol brethren Daughtry or David Cook, and certainly the leadoff track "Higher Than Heaven" packages Durbin's angelic yawlp with just enough processed electric guitar fuzz and squelch to register as nu-metal dirty. Elsewhere, listeners get a pop-friendly concoction of OneRepublic-esque uplift cuts such as "All I Want," the veritable power pop-infused "Love in Ruins," and the anthemic ballad "Love Me Bad." Ultimately, Durbin does deliver the vocal goods here on material that should appeal to his AmIdol fan base. ~ Matt Collar, Rovi

If you are someone who loves hard rock, 80s rock, beatles rock, and the like. You will LOVE This album, there are soft ballads, hard hitting songs, and mellow songs as well. This album is pure James Durbin, and it shows how much he had poured his soul into it. Songs like Higher Than Heaven will take you into his mind with his best girl, Heidi. Songs like Screaming will show you his passion again bullying. you will NOT be disappointed in this album, it's a MUST buy!

Fantastic album (all songs). Don't know why folks aren't reviewing here yet -- up to 1287 reviews on Itunes & I know a lot of cd's sold at Walmart -- sold out right now on line after 1 week! You won't be disappointed--great radio-friendly Rock, & a ballad hit: called May is being called remarkable! Outstanding debut album James!
