Amoeba Review

05/05/2014

After a stint in rehab, her TV show’s cancellation and a lackluster third album, a lot was on the line for Demi Lovato. The former Disney star was in danger of having her career be in decline before her 21st birthday. But Demi is a righteous statement from the singer, having been through a documentary’s worth of ups and downs and coming out on top with a radio-ready pop-rock album full of hits. “I’m putting my defenses up ’cause I don’t wanna fall in love,” she sings on the powerful “Heart Attack,” the album’s opener and strongest single. There’s just a hint of newfound world weariness to Lovato’s voice to make the sentiment work, though her pipes still tear the house down as usual. Similarly, power ballad “Without the Love” finds Lovato dealing with heartache in a high-profile world, singing to her unknown subject (perhaps a Jonas bro?): “why are we acting like lovers/we don’t know each other, even though we used to rule the world.” But it’s not all dark territory on Demi; far from it. “Made in the USA” is kind of her response to Miley Cyrus’ “Party in the USA” or Katy Perry’s “California Girls,” full of playful autotune and irresistible lines like “hair blowin’ in the wind, losing track of time” painting an idealized picture of cruising on the Pacific Coast Highway. And Demi has its club bangers, too—“you’ll be comin’ home with me tonight,” she declares on “Neon Lights,” a booming track that proves Lovato can do it all, from Kelly Clarkson-style pop-rock to Mariah-esque ballads and EDM jams that don’t skimp on heavy beats. While the hardships Lovato faced would send many a former teen star off into obscurity, Lovato’s not having it; she’s too triumphant for that on Demi.
