THE GREAT:
Nothing, well except its kind of funny.

THE AVERAGE:
“Over” – One of the few songs that sounds radio-worthy. Lohan is lucky that the songwriters didn’t sell this to Hilary Duff or Ashley Simpson.
“Rumors” – Has a good hook but the lyrics are an insult to our intelligence: “Why can’t you just let me do/The things I wanna do?” she demands. “Why can’t they back up off me/Why can’t they let me live/I’m gonna do it my way!” Yeah, I’m sure making millions of dollars is so bad.

THE BAD:
“Speak” – Sounds like every other pop song out there.
“First” – BAD. Without her name this song would have never been made.
“Symptoms Of You” – Awful.

FRANKLY: If anyone has seen Lohan perform you know she is lip-syncing which is a testament to the wonders of the modern digital recording studio. Do you want to be a pop star? Well then get a movie contract. Do you really think you could compare Lohan’s singing ability to Clay Aiken for instance? Christina Aguilera? Anyone?
Lohan’s Speak honestly sounds like songs that were rejected by other top pop stars and left for the cast-offs. If you found this in a box of Cracker Jacks you’d ask for a refund.
