Unhip it may be by design, but at least Kris Allen delivers the goods: it’s tuneful and likeable, melodic enough to merit a close listen. 60. It’s a polite mix of soft rock with hints of boundary jumping that, unfortunately, never truly come. There’s really nothing wrong with the set; it’s sweetly executed and produced.
It’s all Kanye’s fault. To many, much of whatever credibility the Idol franchise still had, flew out the window when Kris Allen was voted the winner of the 8th season of American Idol. How he conquered any of the top five contestants, let alone eventual runner-up Adam Lambert, shall continue to astound. Anyone who saw just one of the 24 year old’s Idol performances.
Then again, Kris Allen isn’t about excitement, he’s about comfort, something that’s plainly evident on his immaculate, eponymous debut, an album every bit as unexpected as his name. Allen possesses an easy touch, so easy that he doesn’t seem to leave an imprint, other than making already pleasant surroundings seem a touch friendlier. Kris may be so happy to be here, that he isn't bothered that, apart from a rhythmic hip-hop inflection learned from Jason Mraz, he isn't too connected to his times, either.
