Album Review: Jack Vidgen: Yes I Am

Photobucket









The 14 y/o sensation with the blond locks wowed the world with his massive voice up to the point that he won AGT's latest season, and no, not America's Got Talent, the down under version, Australia's Got Talent, which features former XF judges Danni Minogue and Kyle Sandilands, plus Brian McFadden. The show is a hit in Australia and there's no wonder that this young kid is also one. His debut album, "Yes I Am" charted #3 in the ARIA charts and was certified Gold, plus he's now been called the Australian Bieber, and the question is if that's exactly a compliment ...

6,5/10

The album is composed bascially by covers, with the exception of first single "Yes I Am" and "Fly", both penned by Jack and Erana Clark (Australian Idol vocal coach) and despite the massive turn down that a covers album is, Jack manages to pull it through delivering strong vocals in every single song. Not to mention he's tackling massive songs such as "And I'm Telling You I'm Not Going", Adele's "Set Fire to the Rain" and "Hero". There are even times that you forget that a 14 y/o is singing, or even that it's a boy, and not a girl, like it happens with "Glitter In the Air". However, Jack proves he's an incredible singer in every song, wheter it's RnB influenced "Fly", sweet "Loving You" or his gospel inspired title track. There's definitely a great carrer ahead for him.
