Title: Jessie James
Label: Mercury Records
Rating: 6.5/10

Corporate line: Recorded in Los Angeles, New York, Nashville, and London, the album takes off with ‘Wanted’, the full-throttle Dance-Rock scorcher that Jessie co-wrote with American Idol judge and hit songwriter Kara DioGuardi. There’s also ‘Bullet’, a catchy Rock gem co-written with pal Katy Perry.

“Roots-music purists love to complain about their inability to distinguish current Nashville product from poppy Top 40 fare. This 20-year-old Georgia native never knew there was supposed to be a difference.”

Billboard.com: “Judging by some of the song titles (“Guilty,” “My Cowboy,” “Wanted”) on her self-titled debut, one could say that 20-year-old Georgia newcomer Jessie James lives up to her name as the female version of the American outlaw.”

Slant: “While she’s able to pull off that bad-girl vamp far more convincingly than Underwood, that isn’t saying much, and James certainly doesn’t hold a candle to Aguilera at her skankiest.”
